Weather was wonderful, and there was always someone there to help. They bent over backward to accommodate us. There was a greeting that included a timeshare hello, but they were not pushy. Said we were not interested, and we were on our way, having fun the entire time. The only drawback - unless you are a gold member, the wifi... More

This resort, even as it gets bigger and bigger, still has a phenomenal foundation - the staff. Miriam in the Lobby bar is outstanding. She never forgets a face or a drink and will have one waiting there for you 1/2 the time! Sisa, from housekeeping, did an outstanding job in cleaning my room. It was always done promptly and... More

The room was ok, the shower worked great. We had a slight bug problem but once I talked to house keeping the problem was resolved. The "reservations" for dinner were a bit of a joke as they told us where we were going to eat upon check in. If we did not like those reservations then you could get on... More

This vacation was wonderful; I had so much fun with my family. The best part of this hotel was the entertainers: Salami, Coffee, and the rest of them. These guys always had us laughing. They were very outgoing and very friendly with everyone. I can say they were one of the best of entertainers around. I would recommend this resort... More

Resort Consist of about 8 different types of hotels within its property. Cofresi Palms, Royal Suites, Crown Villas, Presidential Suites, Royal Villas, Residence Suites, Villa Park Suites, and Tropical Resort. We chose *The Tropical Resort* since most over our group was staying there. This one is by far the worst property that Lifestyle Holidays Vacations Resort owns. Our room was... More

Stayed for a week in June, the resort is absolutely beautiful and the perfect place for an all inclusive vacation. The resort is huge and there's always something to do. Both the service and quality were great. The best part was Salami and the rest of the entertainment team who go out of their way to ensure that you enjoy... More

we stayed at the presidential suites but we went to the tropical for the pool games and the other attractions all the time. On our second to last day we went and tried the pool aerobics and we had so much fun, especially with John Cena.

My stay at the tropical was one to remember because the staff was very interactive and welcoming. They always had a lot of activities going on everyday and parties at night. One of my favorite moments were the foam party and meeting a really nice worker named Salami. He always made sure I had a smile on my face whenever... More
