Please read this and save yourself some time if you plan to come to LHVC either from RCI, Groupon, Interval or any other way they sell this place! First, let me say I would not recommend anyone from the USA come here for at least a year. Why? Because during the pandemic they did what they needed to do to survive and it shows: 1) the place is almost all local Dominicans. It seems they sold low price packages to anyone and everyone they could locally to keep the place at some level of capacity. If you get a room now it will likely be far from the beach in their “presidential area” which is far from everything! 2) almost all the 10+ restaurants they say are open are closed. There were two restaurants open all week plus a buffet that served the same things over and over again. How many burgers, pizza, rice, beans and pork can someone eat. It’s all bland and no taste. It’s made for the local Dominican population not Americans. The italian restaurant wasn’t very good and the sole saving grace was the Mexican restaurant that I ate at a few times. 3) I came as an RCI member and paid $800 to upgrade both of us to all inclusive. Can’t do it any other way as you can’t eat anywhere and pay a la Carte. A major issue is that when they say all inclusive it’s all inclusive of what they want to include! Yes you heard me right it actually doesn’t include many bars/restaurants that serve better alcohol than others (you need to buy here to get to go to those bars and restaurants)….oh yeah that brings me to the next point 4) when you get here Winston or whomever says they are your RCI or Interval “host” can’t wait to show you all the things you have access to on the property as an RCI member. Sounds great right? A tour to show what we can do here…..but it’s not. They take you to top shelf huge homes and great bars/pools that you have no access to unless you buy into their timeshare. Oh, you still have no access to it on this visit even if you do. When you don’t buy say goodbye to your RCI “host” he was nowhere to be found…Oh yeah don’t forget about the golf carts to take you everywhere…. Ummm sorry you have no access to those either. OH AND WHEN YOU DONT BUY their timeshare program you get nothing for your time other than a bottle of marmajuana whatever that is. No upgrade, no nice dinner, nothing for wasting hours hearing their pitch that doesn’t show you what you have access to just what you don’t. Oh yeah they do make good drinks at the bar while you listen to them but you have no access to that either after your presentation. The pina colada they serve at the “VIP Pool” was horrendously poor quality. I’d suggest you buy your own bottle in their duty free store if you want anything half decent. 5) and last but not least they closed all the table games at the casino with no explanation. I’m guessing they were cheating and lost their gaming license or they didn’t pay someone off. Yet at the nightly show they tell you to still go to the “casino” that has all but two slot machines. Lol. In summary go somewhere else until at least 2022 and maybe even 2023 . You won’t enjoy yourself here. I’m not a fan of anywhere that has a crappy crowd, bad and limited food/drinks, all inclusive that doesn’t include much and an overall non engaging attitude from the staff. But heh if you want to be disappointed Ignore this absolutely true and current review. I wish it was here before I booked my trip!

Our trip was amazing. We flew from Vienna via Frankfurt to Puerto Plata. Driver was on the airport in time, helped us with baggage and give us water. Accommodation was clean and comfortable. Staff were amazing friendly. Foods in restaurant were modern and comes frome hole a world, everybody can choose his favorite food. But i would specialy to praise our friend LILO Tenis Pro. We played with him every two days, He´s very friendly and he´s true profesional. He helped us with technique of tenis punch and game was very good, we looked forward to game every day. We hope that we come back to LIFESTYLE soon. J+K

My husband and I enjoyed our trip to the Tropical. The resort is beautiful and large, with plenty of pools and beaches to choose from. However, there were some turnoffs: the constant squawking of the peacocks at all hours of the day and night, along with the pushy sales people/always angling for a tip and hot water was lacking at times. On the flip side, Lilo the Tennis Pro was a shining light among the employees. He greeted us with a smile and open arms on day one. He even gave me my first tennis lesson ever and was knowledgeable, patient, and kind every step of the way! If you stay at the resort, make sure to stop by the courts and chat tennis with Lilo and book a lesson!

They get you there only to sell you membership. After that the customer service is horrible. The ocean is polluted. They have sewage going into the water directly at the hotel. At night there is a garbage dump next to the hotel and they burn garbage. After you buy into a membership, forget about booking. You need to book 3 to 4 months in advance. The hotel is usually sold on Groupon and Cheapcarribean.com much cheaper than the membership in order to suck new people in. If you need additional information feel free to contact me.

I've stayed at Lifestyles multiple times and it never disappoints. Their service is unbelievable and the accommodations just beautiful. On my last visit, May 2-May 12, 2021, my sister and I had facials and reflexology twice at the Ying Yang Spa. I can't say enough about how well we were treated by our estheticians, Gladyza and Deanna. The facial was done so professionally and felt so good. I asked Gladyza to please make me beautiful and look 10 years younger and she did her best! And on our 2nd visit after requesting Gladyza and Deanna from our 1st visit, we found out that Deanna was off for our 2nd appointment because it was her birthday, but, she came in to do my sister's treatment because she knew it would mean a lot. After the treatment, we were treated to a fresh-made smoothie and offered to use the sauna, steam room &/or hot tub. It was such a memorable experience and I can't wait to return to Lifestyles so I can schedule a facial and reflexology again! Thank you, Ladies!
