I do not know were to begin with this review. Lets start with this was the third time my husband and I were coming back to this hotel. So we thought we knew what we were going to get. Well we were very wrong. The hotel in the past 2 years has become more of timeshares than a hotel. Every... More

This was a huge property but it wasnt a typical resort experience. It was another one of the - well you dont have access to that - experiences. You need reservations for all restaurants and in my week stay I was unable to get into two of my top choices. No room service, no real group activities, often trying to... More

I don't write too many reviews, but felt the need to after reading a lot of the mixed reviews on this resort. My wife and I stayed in the Residence Suites 2 BR Penthouse with our daughter and one of her friends over Christmas. It was one of the best vacations we have ever had. It was relaxing, fun, and...

My fiancé and I purchased a Groupon where we were able to stay at this beautiful, quiet resort and then visit 6 of the other resorts on this beautiful property. Lifestyle is a beautiful, clean, safe, and friendly place to stay if you are looking for an unforgettable vacation. The staff was pleasant, especially Wilfrido William of The Pearl and... More

The residence suites is a part of the HUGE lifestyle resort, all the properties(hotels) are somewhat linked together. We had access to all parts except the VIP areas. We enjoyed the quiet that this property provided but noticed at some of the other resort properties like Cofresi and Tropical that they were overwhelmingly busy with LOCALS on the weekend, thay...
