The grounds are very well kept and emaculate! The biggest thing that stuck out to me here is that all the staff were very friendly, nice, and always willing to help and accomodate. Everyone seemed to have a great sense of humor! We stayed for a week and many staff members knew us by name and would always greet us.... More

My husband and I went to the Lifestyle Tropical Beach Resort and Spa with a group of 10 (4 other couples). We all had a wonderful time. The grounds are just beautiful and while we were all concerned about the food from some of the other reviews, our experience was the food was great. The staff couldn't have been more... More

I have just returned from a weeks vacation at this resort and I had an excellent time. The staff were wonderful and friendly. The staff entertainment around the Tropical Pool was fantastic, P-Diddy and the boys made every day fantastic. I had a wonderful time, and I cannot wait to go back.

Everyone is very friendly and there is always something to do. The animators really get you involved, we played beach volley something i would have never done if it wasnt for... More

My mom and I decided to book a last minute vacation and had never been to Puerto Plata before. We were a little nervous about picking just anywhere but Lifestyle Tropical Beach Resort was an excellent choice-- beyond our expectations! I have to say that the staff poolside really made our vacation. They are all so filled with energy and... More

I recently stayed at the Tropical and was pleasantly surprised considering I didn't know what to expect. The place was beautiful and the staff was really friendly. The VIP Beach was gorgeous and has free wifi but you have to get there extremely early to get a bed. Being at the pool there was never a dull moment! The entertainment... More

Stayed at Cofresi but liked the main pool at The Tropical the best because the staff were so much fun there. P Diddy was the life of the party and made me laugh all day long! Lenny Kravitz was lots of fun to play beach volleyball with and Jonny Bravo taught me how to play tennis which was really fun... More

We (my husband, son and myself) stayed at Cofresi for 2 weeks, but walked over to the Tropical every day to have some fun with the Animation Team there. George of the Jungle always had a smile for us and 3 towels ready as soon as he saw us approaching! John Cena was awesome in stretching class every day.Aerobics were... More

My best friend and I went to the Tropical in DR for 5 nights February 16-21. We had a super smooth trip from the airport to hotel, as well as check-in. The room was much better than expected, given the cost of the trip, we had a pool view. Within our first hour of being at the resort, we were... More

The resort is nicely landscaped and most of the stall is friendly and courteous. The VIP beach was nice but get there early too reserve a bed/cabana. Most of the drinks are average but no consistency, if you find a bartender who makes what you like go back to that person every time. The fist day I walked down the... More
