All the resorts under the Lifestyle heading are FAB! The food & staff are aces! We were treated like royalty and every staff member was friendly & helpful no matter the time or issue.

If staying at the Lifestyle resort, I will definitely recommend the morning... More

The 5 days my family and I spent at Lifestyles Tropical exceeded our expectations. The fun began within a couple hours of our arrival, thanks to Jhony Bravo. He and ChocoChoco, Michael Jordan and PoochiePoochie certainly know how to get a party started! Amazing, amazing guys. Their energy level and friendliness is contagious. The 4 of them helped make this... More

The trip was amazing. First time to the Domincan, hotel and views are incredible. When sitting at main pool you have you have incredible view of the mountains from one side and the beach and ocean from the other. The entertainment staff (Mr. Blacky Blacky, Capuchino, Bananna, Bon Jovi, Mr. Spaghetti, Supertino and Mr. Jogey) at the Confresi Palm Beach... More

I went on this trip with my family, and we all could not be happier. When we first got to the resort,we were all amazed by the beautiful scenery, location, and layout of the place. We first started at the pool and were immediately greeted by Jhony Bravo asking us to play his "sexy bartending game". What a way to... More
