Me and my girlfriend decided to have a 5 day escape to relax in the Dominican Republic during Thanksgiving 2011. We chose what looked like a decent deal from CheapCarribean: a stay at the Lifestyle Tropical Beach Resort in Puerto Plata! We both traveled a lot and seen the world. We had many vacations, in many countries and resorts around... More

Some people want the wild and crazy vacation and some want the tranquil vacation, with close friends and family. Casa Linda is for those who want a tranquil time in the DR. I rented a beautiful 3 bedroom 2 bath house in a secured community (24/7 security rain or shine). Most of the houses, if not all, are owned by... More

From beginning to end our Anniversary trip was a no-fun trip.

It is a membership vacation resort so the people with the memberships had the best of everything. Us regular guest however had the basics. The room was a basic room it had a bed... More

This place darn near insists that you purchase a timeshare. They have sharks and/or wolves patrolling at least until noon. If you do not want a timeshare say NO and mean it! For 15.00 a day it was an UNBELIEVABLE VALUE. One of the sharks asked me personal quesns that I refused to answer. He got a little hot and... More

I wrote a full review for Lifestyle Tropical which you can see here: epinions.com/review/Lifestyle_Holidays_Vacation_Resort_Confresi_Beach_Puerto_Plata_D_R_epi/content_571111804548 The resort/spa is absolutely beautiful and there are plenty of beach activities to do. The beaches are beautiful, the housing is gorgeous and the staff is relatively friendly.

There is nothing personal here! It is cheap just so you can come here and they will chase you around to sell you anything, from membership to other more common things such as spa, activities etc. Also, the resort is on a hill and the mountains are Right behind it which makes the weather constantly bad! In the past two... More

This hotel resort was my first in the Caribbean and it was a disappointment. I don't think I would have been so disappointed if I hadn't paid so much. We paid $79 per day for the "all inclusive" fee for 5 days (we stayed for 7 days) . We met people that paid $60 for for 4 days or $11,... More
