I visited the lifestyle tropical resort and spa in puerto plata. The resort is excellent. The staff is exceptional, friendly and always pleasant. I especially liked the animation staff. Julio aka "the rock" was the life of the party. He worked hard to keep everyone happy and make our stay a fun experience. I would definetely come back

We enjoyed our stay. The service was excellent. The resort had lots to do with plenty of entertainment from Romeo, Papo, Candy, Picazo, Lenny and Mosisito! It was our first time there and definitely not our last.

The towels were soft, the bed was hard. The wireless isn't free unless you are apparently standing in the one spot on the beach that it works in. I chose this resort through RCI as it was one of the few that all inclusive was "optional." I am currently restricted in my eating and can't drink so it was silly... More

We had a fantastic time here (4 couples) -- the grounds were STUNNING, the beach was decent. There are plenty of bars sprinkled around, and lots of fun at the party pool! BUT a few improvements could be made. Our room DEFINITELY needed updating... every time you used shower the entire bathroom would flood, which was just ew. Nobody wants... More

We stayed at The Tropical last time in 2013 and we loved it, so we decided to go back. The room we had was nothing special, regular hotel room, two beds, a little shabby here and there, a lot of humidity in the air and drowers (all clothes felt damp when we arrived home, even something that was not worn...

It has been awhile since we returned from Lifestyles but I am seeing a lot of advertisements for this resort and i want to warn people. My partner and I stayed here last year for 7 days and not one day of the trip was worth our time. We currently have a time share with RCI and stayed here as... More
