My wife and I stayed at this resort and it was fantastic! Big shout out and thanks to Felix Nunez who hooked us up with the excursions and for being a genuine, stand-up guy. Didn't mess around and told us what we'd expect on the different excursions, and did not push us to get any unless it sounded like it... More

Hotel bathroom need update, restaurant need improve on reservation, if all inclusive it should be easy to get to any restaurants. Entertaining were a five star. Hulio the Rock was very helpful and a great entertainer, all entertainers are very good and very interact with everybody this is my second time I'd been there.

I stayed at Lifestyle Resort during my business trip to Puerto Plata. I stayed at Tropical resort and due to heavy rainning the first couple days i had to be relocated twice to different rooms, it was frustating! On my tenth day in there i went to this Hindu restaurant and my stomach didn't like it much. I ended up... More

The staff at the Casablanca buffet (Tropical resort) was very accommodating. However, getting a reservation at one of the specialty restaurants was frustrating, although I would recommend booking a reservation at Indochine one night for an amazing sunset during dinner. Overall, the food was good but don't expect cruise quality. Don't come here expecting a 5-star resort. The bathrooms need... More

Its a beautiful place. But they really need to improve customer service. Around the pool, restaurants. Even though i have VIP acess to many places they lack on customer service. Its a amazing place. But i dont see myself coming back to it. need more variety on food on the buffet.

An absolute disgrace to all hospitality establishments. Ruined our vacation. There was no AC in our room and as a result my wife was forced to sleep outside due to her asthma. Will not be returning to any lifestyle establishments in the future. You get what you pay for, which is practically nothing

No AC in the room, 2 hour resort tour, allowance of only 2 a la carte dinners for 7 days, cheap alcohol, unfriendly staff, plenty of unhappy guests. Checked in Saturday checking out Sunday to go to another resort that accommodates us on our HONEYMOON! Will continue writing negative reviews daily, that's how bad it is. Spend the extra money...

Loved the tropicalness and the vibes at the resort. Room, bathroom, furnitures need updating. Server staffs were very helpful and friendly at the buffet restaurants. Trying to get reservation for the dine in restaurants was very hard. Had a great time with the entertainment crews, Romeo 911, Shaggy, Chocolate, Spagetti, Julio the Rock, Pablo, Kitti, Moskito, Minime, Bonaires. They did... More
