We planned this vacation completely blind and spontaneous hoping for the best. That was one of the best decisions because we had an absolutely great time. Firstly, the hotel amenities were very well maintained and accessible with many options from pools to beaches. Hotel employees were always happy and helpful from the entertainers to the dining staff. A few people... More

Travelled end of Jan with wife and 2 other couples. We are members. We travel every 4 months (or try to). This time we had 3 individual units at the Tropical. Awesome !!!! We usually get Villas but this time wanted to try something new. We figured moving down to individual units we may be compromising some of the benefits... More

I just returned from a one week holiday at the Tropical with my husband. After reading several of the reviews on TripAdvisor, I was quite concerned as to whether we would enjoy our trip. Fortunately, we ended up having a wonderful time!! We purchased this trip through cheapcarribean.com for a great rate so I was not expected a luxury resort... More

This vacation turned out much better than I expected, and it's all due the to entertainment staff near the pool. All of these young men: George of the Jungle, Pablo Picasso, Julio the Rock, Julio Nice, Mini mi, and Lenny are exceptional entertainers and have such good chemistry. Since I could not leave the resort, I went to the pool... More

This was my first trip ever out of the United States and I felt like a VIP. Everyone I came in contact with was very nice and welcoming especially Julio Nice, I was there for 8 days and he always addressed me by the nickname he gave me. He never forgot to greet me every time he seen me and... More

This is definitely the best vacation I've ever taken. I was impressed by the service, the physical resort, the food but most of all... the entertainment! Every night at the arena and during the day they would have a lot of activities and special shows. Julio Nice and the rest of the crew kept the guests at the hotel engaged... More

I had such an amazing time at The Lifestyle Resort for my best friends 30th birthday. I have been to a resort in Bàvaro and I must say that I didn't enjoy myself as much as I did at Lifestyle Resort in Puerto Plata. Let me start by saying the checking in service was great. The staff was really nice... More

Good meal options between the two resorts. Pool facilities were nice. Wish the beach could have been good to lay on, which is why the cabanas were in high demand. Was very impressed with the Sunday Welcome Dinner each week where over 1000 guests were invited to eat seafood, watch carnival and fireworks. There is also a currency exchange booth... More

thanks for a wonderful stay yet again! the most fun is when Julio the Rock and his crew (Pablo, Kittie, Minimi, Julio Nice, Lennig, and Mosquito) do their thing with exercises, fun, games and so much more. They really make the time there memorable and extraordinary. Thanks for the laughs and dance moves! We enjoyed our stay and cannot wait... More

This was our first time in Puerto Plata. We had a great time with friends. Rooms were clean and spacious. There was fun entertainment- the people who work there made the vacation great. Julio Nice, Julio the Rock, Mini Me, Pablo Picasso, Kitti and Mosquito were great! Definitely recommend.
