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.

The beaches are extremley dirty and stray dogs and cats everywhere!! You have to pay for Wifi that does not work! Rooms are not up to date, No TV and the one we received was old and not working!! You have to pay for the use of the safe which is a wooden box attached to the closet wall!

great entertainers, look out for the rock and his gang. great value with the deal we got from living social. really glad we had access to the vip beach club with nice chill out beds. we also paid for power snorkeling at Sosua through Chukka, located by the pools at the resort. Sosua has much cleaner waters.

This is my second time here. Last time at the Holiday Tropical and this time Confressi Palm. Our room was much better at Holiday. At Confressi we didn't even have a dresser to put clothes in. We had to beg for towels everyday. After asking and asking we might get one!! The VIP beach near Confressi is the only reason... More

The Resort is very nice there is plenty to do every day from relaxing on the beach, to walking around and exploring, or even just hanging out pool side and doing fun activities that they have planned. The main reason that i would come back is because of the employees that work there, they make it so interesting and different... More
