This was my husband and my first trip to the Dominican Republic. We had heard lots of things about Punta Cana but hadn't met anyone who had been to Puerta Plata. After reading some of the reviews on Tripadvisor.com I figured it shouldn't be too bad. I booked the deal Cheapcarribean.com was running in April for 7 days 6 nights... More

`Very nice resort with excellent service, very nice room with sitting area and lanai and luxury pools. The buffets are wonderful with many items to choose from. Drinks plentiful and good. Restaurants very nice and gourmet restaurants worth the extra price. Las Vegas show at Ocean World included in the VIP. We loved everything about this place.

I went on ORBITZ and payed on average 78.00 for 2 people.. thats an average of $39.00 per nite per person. All inclusive. The rooms where very clean, stocked fridge, iron & iron board,... More

Stay FAR AWAY from this place. It is a trap. The food is awful. Many of the employees are rude. My best friend, her 3 boys and myself and my 2 boys spend 1 week for spring break 2010 there. We spend about 10 thousand dollars as a group and felt ripped off. The hotel gave us a better room... More

My husband and I ended up booking this resort after finding an unbeatable deal on cheapcarribean.com for 7 nights that we just couldnt pass up.

My boyfriend and I visited this resort last august. After reading all the terrible reviews I thought i'd post my experience up. We're a younger couple but we're also used to 4* to 5* resorts as you can really get your money's worth with them! We were late booking so we thought we'd give this one a try. It was... More

We stayed at the Lifestyles Holiday Resort and spa as a member of TAN. Upon arrival it was raining, and getting to our room Building 6, we were a little disappointed in the room. We had both stayed at 5 star resorts in Mexico and this being 3 star we definately could tell the difference. Rooms were clean with white... More

I have stayed at the Tropical many times, I will be going back in September. Although we are Lifestyle (timeshare) members we have most of our meals in the main buffet. The standard has improved so much in the last 2 years and we certainly did not go hungry. We took my father in law (aged 88) last time. He... More
