Great experience & booked our next trip already!

I was a little nervous from the reviews. Check in was a nightmare but after a couple of different trips to different rooms any many trips back to the front desk we finally got a room in bldg#1 that was comfortable! The front desk staff is not very friendly....It is a big resort & there is alot of walking if you are not use to it. Great exercise! The room is stocked everyday with water bottles/beer & soda at no extra charge. You can get a safe key for a few dollars a day. Bring ALOT of Dollar bills...tipping will get you excellent services! The staff works hard. Bring a beach towel so you don't have to deal with the towel keys-use them for the a/c unit on the wall when you enter your room. You can get some great deals on the beach from the venders you really don't have to leave the resort. This resort is VERY SAFE! That was a plus. Security is really tight & they are very friendly & helpful. There are many gates to get into the resort. The food was good for a three star resort. Keep in mind it is a three star resort. The fresh omlettes/fruit & oatmeal in the am ..snacks all day to the buffet at night. The pasta was every good. The blue lagoon was the best by far. The V.I.P. is a must..fantastic..The pool bar was great-so was the staff at all the bars. It rained every day for a little bit but we made the best of it. There are time-share staff but they are just doing there job to promote this hotel. If you want to see the resort then go & get your welcome package. it is a bottle of rum & a t-shirt! It is worth it to pay the extra for the bus to take you to the resort. *Bumpy ride on a bus -it does have a/c & much better than getting a taxi! The best part of this resort is the entertainment staff. They made you feel like part of the family from morning to night. Starting with the water erobics with babyface in the am to the full staff at the pool playing vollyball and differnent games around the pool to karoekee/bingo and much more activites before & after dinner. Scooby, babyface & all the staff girls & guys were very entertaining. The dance lessons were fun. The shows at night were all fantastic. Everynight was a great show. The disco was also great. Never a boring moment at this resort! I have been to five star resorts all over & this resort has the best entertainment by far-they really go out of there way. It is a great get-a-way. Meet alot of nice people from all around the world. This is a great resort to relax with friends or for a family. We just booked our next four night getaway..can't wait to get back to have fun & relax in the sun!

While the location was nice, I wish the Cheap Caribbean site would have said the only way to get access to the "nice" beaches, bars, food, etc. was to purchase the VIP option. We thought since we were "all inclusive" that's what it meant...not even close. A non VIP person only gets a sliver of ok beach. On both sides of you are beautiful beaches, good food & snacks, bars, free wifi, etc. You are treated like dirt if you are not a VIP. No name brand alcohol, a lousy smelly old room that backs up to the road that all the hotel staff use so it's noisy day and night. It's a shame. Very deceiving and I don't plan on using Cheap Carribean again or recommending them any time soon.

BE AWARE

I just came back from the Resort on 01/09 and I would like to share my experience with Lifestyle. The personal of the hotel itself are very friendly. However, those people that work for the OLYMPUS TOUR are not helpful at all! My family and other guests that we met in the resort have bought the round trip transportation from the airport to the resort and paid the $56. What we did not know is that from the Resort to the airport there is ONLY one transportation leaving at 9:45am which is arranged through OLYMPUS TOUR. It means that if your flight leaves in the afternoon (which was our case) we would need to be stuck in the airport for 4 to 5 hours!!! They do have later times of transportation, but it is reserved for those people that DID NOT buy with cheapCaribbean coming with JETBLUE. We shared a large taxi which the hotel have called for us and paid $45. It is about 25 minutes ride. The people from Olympus tour are friendly to get you to buy their touristic trips, but they are not accommodating at all to your transportation back to the airport which many have paid for in advance! The food is just OK in the buffet at Casa Blanca!! I advise NOT to do any reservation at the Mexican, Domenican and Chinese restaurant the food has very poor quality! The Indian and Italian food was OK. If you book through cheapCaribbean you are considered VIP and can go to the VIP beach where the waiter comes to you offering drinks and you can other food as well! When you just arrive they assign a representative to give you the welcome gift, but underlined this " welcome gift" what they are trying to do is to sell you an membership/timeshare. From the beginning you can say that you are not interested and they leave you alone. I have been in many all inclusive resort which they always try to sell you the timeshare. They can be very persistent if you don't cut it from the beginning!!

disappointed

We booked the 2010 special. This resort had its pros and cons. The resort was well kept and beautiful. The VIP beach was the best, with the beds to lay out on, an A+, top shelf drinks, and excelent service. The welcoming party had great entertainment but food was horrible and cold. The food was horrible everywhere except the VIP beach which was open from 9-5 with limited appetizer menu. The buffet was the same food most of the time but fixed different ways. We were shocked that we had to sit through a Time Share Presentation since this was not mentioned and would not have booked it if we knew this. It seemed like every time you turned around you were being pressured to buy something.The beach was not the white sand and teal water as we expected. The restaurants were misleading. They made it look like you had other restaurants to dine at. Well, how that worked they assigned you to one restaurant for one night during your stay "their choice" which you had to eat at 9:00 p.m. you could sign up for the other restaurants but had to be in the office at 9:00 a.m. and get put on a waiting list and if someone canceled or if you were picked you could eat there but once again at 9:00 p.m. There were other things to do but you had to pay for the excursions which could get quite expensive when paying for family.

What's to Love

The dine-around program offers access to Lifestyle Resort Puerto Plata's sister hotels, Residence Suites, Crown Suites and Cofresi Palm, for dining and nightlife choices.

 

What We'd Change

Although the beach is nice, the sand is dark and coarser than neighboring beaches. But thanks to the Bali-beds scattered along the shore, your toes have a plush alternative.

 

Why You Should Go

CheapCaribbean.com guests have access to the VIP beach of the Lifestyle Tropical Beach Resort and Spa, making this resort the best all inclusive deal in the Dominican Republic.

Hotel Description

Lifestyle Tropical Beach Resort & Spa: The Time is Now to Have Fun in Paradise

Stop waiting for the perfect time of year for your ultimate island getaway. The Dominican Republic's Lifestyle Tropical Beach Resort has seductive tropical breezes and golden sunshine year round. This budget-friendly resort rests upon the sands of beautiful Cofresi Beach in Puerta Plata, amidst Caribbean-style, thatched roofs and cobblestone walkways, comfortably blending in with the towering mountain ranges and the sparkling hues of the ocean.

This Mediterranean-style resort is only a short stretch of beach away from one of the coolest adventures in the Caribbean: Ocean World Park, where the sea is at your fingertips. Spend priceless hours of family time interacting with playful dolphins, clowning around with sea lions or swimming face to face with tigers. Hold hands with your sweetheart and let your flippers do the work, as you snorkel through a brilliant underwater world or take a swim on the wild side with stingrays.

After a day in the sun, enjoy a swim under the waterfalls in the resort's pools, enjoy a peaceful respite sunning by the designated quiet pool or make your way to the Metamorphosis Spa, where the name says it all. Select from a long list of indulgences, such as hydro and aromatherapy, soak the stress away in the Turkish Bath or work it out in the world-class fitness center with personal trainers for yoga, aerobics, tai chi or qi gong.

Refuel after your workout with tasty sea fare from Blue Lagoon, one of Lifestyle Tropical Beach Resort's five restaurants. Or sample the all inclusive buffet at Casablanca Restaurant, where every night is theme night. Then bang a gong at the resort's disco, or party the night away all inclusive-style at the Beach Club Bar (open 24 hours for night owls).

This hotel is All-Inclusive.

  • Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks
  • Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks
  • Privileged use of all restaurants, bars and facilities at Lifestyle Crown Residence Suites and Cofresi Palm
