At first reading all the reviews i was so very skeptical about booking this hotel but did it anyway because i was getting an amazing price. This hotel is awesome and caters to all your needs. The staff is very friendly and they all speak Spanish which was very convenient for me. The hotel is directly on the beach which... More

The trip is what you make it !!! We haven’t taken a trip in several years and booked this trip through Cheap Caribbean. After reading the reviews, we decided that we would make the most of the trip regardless of the conditions or what others had said in reviews. However, we found that the conditions were not as bad as... More

I'm glad I didn't read the bad reviews before i booked or I might have missed out on one of the nicest vacations I've ever been on. From the food to the VIP bars, the shows, the Dominican people, everything was great. I must comment on the Dominican people. They are so friendly and kind and so fun loving. The... More

Our 5 day trip was booked thru cheapcaribbean. From the time you arrive you have a confusing time of understanding of what you can do and go on the premises. Many different colored armbands and many levels of "VIP". Any form of orientation was a disguise to sell you a timeshare or tour. If you don't play the game and... More

My 3 friends from highschool and I booked this vacation thru Cheap Carribean. At first we were skeptical from all the bad reviews that we read. Not to worry though - we landed at the airport and were taken to the resort. Handed a cold drink while we waited to be checked in. Our rooms were ready and we went... More

A "VIP" booking with Cheap Carribbean means that you are targeted as a potential buyer of the upgraded, and very lovely timeshare portion of the "resort". Apparently, everyone from all travel agencies is a "VIP" with a different color coded bracelet. We didn't have high expectations for our room with a $20/night charge. After all, we were just there for... More

You will learn new rules about this place everyday. Although they may change depending on who you ask... First let me say that we paid $20 a night per person for all-inclusive so you can't really complain much about what you get. There were some really great things and some really weird things about this place. 1- VIP beach was... More

My family took a vacation to Lifestyle Tropical Beach Resort and Spa during the second week of March 2011. It was our first trip to Puerto Plata and after reading the reviews, we were not sure of what to expect but ending up having a wonderful time.
