We booked through RCI and they had a notice to contact resort for a complimentary shuttle to the hotel. I did so and RCI did not take care of this. Despite numerous calls & emails to RCI and the resort, nothing booked. As a last resort I went to the resort site and booked a shuttle with my credit card....

We read the reviews here and went with some trepidation. However, our misgivings were unfounded. We were very pleasantly surprised. We flew into Santiago and were picked up by Cocotours, which I highly recommend. Our room was clean, and spacious. Our beds were striped everyday and new sheets put on by our friendly and hardworking maids. The resort is hilly,...

There's quite a few disappointed reviews about this place, but I guess they may be the consequence of expecting too much. Once you realize the resort for what it is -- clearly above average but less than stellar -- you'll be able to enjoy it. (And that's from a non-VIP who experienced three days of rain on a seven-day holiday.)...

This place missed the boat on a number of levels! Value is "very good" only because we stayed using a friend's "share rate" and got GUEST VIP bands. Because of the relatively affordable price, we overlooked some things. We travel A LOT and we are a very low maintenance family. The food was below average - EXCEPT at the Sunday...

The room is in desperate need of updating. The bathroom had a 5 gallon water heater in a cabinet right outside the door with a switch turning it on and off. There was on a cracked glass shower with no bathtub. The bedroom had no dresser or TV. The only TV was unoperational while sitting on a burlap cushion cushion...

Although the accommodation was good, I don't go on holiday to sit next to a smoker during my meals or when relaxing beside the pool. There really shouldn't be smoking in the restaurants - Lifestyles Holidays has to 'up' its game and get into the 21st century - smoking is a big No-No these days. Especially in restaurants.

This was a groupon deal, and as such I feel that the resort gave us a less then stellar accomodation. The cieling in our ground floor suite had a bathroom that leaked from the ceiling when the air conditioning was overworked, the sofa and chair in the living room were hard as a rock to sit in, and there was...

Coming into this vacation our expectations were not very high due to the bad reviews we had been reading. We booked through RCI so we knew wouldn't have access to everything. When we arrived we were greeted and helped with our bags. Check-in was easy and smooth. The lady explained everything to us very well. There were five of us...

This is our first trip using RCI to the Crown Residence Resort and Spa. The place is quiet and tranquil but if you want to party there are 4 other hotels, using the shuttle, that made it easy. The Tropical Resort was our favorite as we have made true friends with the workers there. Julio Nice, Black Panther, Luigi, Martin,...

This resort only had 1 restaurant and you had to be shuttled every where else you wanted to go including the beach. We had a party of 8 and were put in 3 different building even though we requested to be close. The reason for this as I found out later was this is a (time share) what they call...
