If you are not a VIP resort member you are not treated well and hounded the entire time to join. IN talking to other non VIP guests prices were not consistent with offer. There was no variety in food with the main dining option and often times the food was not fully cooked. Beach cabanas are supposed to close at... More

Indochine Restaurant offered a wide selection to choose from for dinner. I especially enjoyed the dumplings and spring rolls. Very nice. I found my main course was a bit salty (I don't cook with salt) and didn't eat much. The waiter was happy to take it away and bring more dumplings! I was pleased.

You will see these wonderful people all over the resort dancing, coordinating games, exercise and they are also in some of the nightly shows. Their names are: Julio, Chispa, Moskito, Mini-me, Pantera, Lil Wayne, Rodolfo, and Wilton. I think hands down the most warm, kind, polite, funny, helpful, kid friendly, and most wonderful people at Lifestyle Resorts. If they lose... More

The Tropical wasn't the greatest hotel in the world. If I were to go back to Lifestyle Holidays, I would stay at another hotel on the resort. The following staff members made the experience better... The Black Panther, The Entertainer, Wanda Lebron, Jacqueline Reyes, Rolando the tour guide, Mini Me, Jose Mercado, and Elisa Beard. The drinks were so-so, but... More

My family and I visited Lifestyle for the 5th time and we had the best time last week. The shows was awesome and the poolside entertainment. Julio, the Rock is very fun and his personality is awesome. He is very friendly and always speaks when he sees you. Can't wait to go back and join the poolside games again!

I recently visited this resort in July and the Animation team is what makes this resort the most fun. I just recently heard that Lifestyle is firing several of the guys on the Animation team. I really hope this is not true. The only reason I am going back to visit this resort in October is because of the great... More

I have to say the staff at Tropical is VERY understanding and accommodating. This is one of the reasons why we wanted to return this year. Although, I enjoyed the experience I'm not sure if we will return next year.
