We spent 2 weeks at Lifestyle Tropical Resort in Puerto Plata, DR (April 24-May 8). The first week with a group of about 26 and the second week on our own. The drive from the airport was uneventful and reasonably quick - about 45 minutes including the drop offs at the other resorts. We grabbed a couple ice cold beer...

We have the opportunity to have the Chairman's Circle Experience which is the white bracelet with access to exclusive restaurants and areas only for CC members, I can say in my own experience that it is overated for what they tell you to expect, the food at Saffron is the best with a la cart menu with great choices, avoid...

We came on the Groupon deal. It's a set up to get you to buy Into their membership program. Doesn't seem like a good idea because every member we met didn't have good reviews on being a member. The mosquitoes ate us ALIVE. Make sure you bring insect repellent. The grounds were somewhat shabby as well. I personally don't like...

My wife and I just got back yesterday from this resort and would never recommend it to anyone. First off, the room we had was literally on the ground floor next to the cleaning crew office where there was constant yelling back and forth from the workers. The room itself had a musty smell and the ceiling of the bathroom...

Lifestyle resorts is fine if you have the money to pay for all inclusive. But if you don't, you have to walk or pay to go to town ( five miles ) to eat. They also claim that it's not safe but the people in the Dominican are very kind. They are just not being fair and by keeping tourists...

Great place. Very friendly people. Food was also delicious. Rooms were adequate, the headboards should be changed as you can not access the electrical outlets very well. Ying/Yang Spa was just fabulous! My friend and I are going back same time next year.
