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...

I bought this off of Living Social and I guess that old saying - if it sounds too good to be true... it probably is... The property is massive with lots of facilities, restaurants, pools and a lackluster beach... we paid $600 for 5 days all inclusive... as it turned out, this was simply their way to get us to...

When we arrived, the hotel was just outstanding... Beautiful landscape and a smile everywhere you go. We where a group of 14 and we fitted perfectly between 5 rooms. The front desk staff was sooooo helpful, I want to thank Erika, Juan Luis, Frank and the others for a great experience. Our dinner in the Mexican restaurant was just too... More

The resort is huge, and the shuttle service was a complete joke. My wife and I chose to walk everywhere instead of waiting 30 mins+ for a shuttle. We were not "VIPS" so we were only allowed to eat at 2 restaurants after making reservations. The rest of the time we ate at buffets which the food was awful and... More

Pros – It’s huge, excellent room accommodations, plethora of pools, friendly & attentive staff. Sitting in my room waiting for transportation to the airport and couldn’t help but remember the positive encounters I had with so many beautiful people working at... More

A friend and I stayed at the Residence Suites from Sunday June 22, 2014 thru Friday June 27, 2014. By Wednesday the 25th I was ready to go home.
