Terrific location and weather

Pros: weather is great if you like sun, warm breezes and warm tropical surf. Friendly staff, location is very clean, and kept up well. Cons: too much pressure to buy a timeshare or massage package. Restaurants are obviosly canned from a large corp. No unique variety. All in all, wrll worth the money.

Wheres my Room

When i arrived to the hotel, they seem to have no booking for me, luckily i had my printout from booking. I asked for 1 kingsize bed, they gave me one of there worst rooms 2 beds, the Presidential Suite rooms are nothing like the you tube videos!! You must ride in a golf cart to almost everywhere! The resort is huge. The Sports bar there is the BEST thing about the resort. The guys in there are the BEST! Would i go back probably not. Flies all over the food is a major problem, the should copy Sunscape and put the food inside!! Seeing flies all over the food can kill an apetite real guick.

Our Trip to Presidential Suites

Takeaways from our Trip at Presidential Suites at Lifestyle Resort THE GOOD 1) VARIETY: Since we were staying 9 nights, we wanted a large resort with plenty to do. This resort did not disappoint. It takes 3 days to learn where things were. I recommend to explore to learn what you like. Do not skip the Sunday welcoming party. It was extravagant and best food we had the whole trip. It was a spectacle done right. Free shows were great as well. 2) DINING: There were many different restaurants and buffets. All a la carte restaurants that we made reservations at were all good. Buffets were good but seemed to have the same thing and got monotonous for breakfast. Bottom line is that you always have a choice on where to eat. 3) EMPLOYEES: We had great service the whole time. They seemed to really care about you and providing good service. 4) EXCURSIONS: Catamaran and waterfalls were fun. Both provided drinks and lunches. Employees were great again. 5) CHEAP CARIBBEAN (Amstar) REP: He was great. It really pays to purchase via cheapcaribbean. He basically serves as your travel agent when you are there. Redolfo was there to answer our questions, book our excursions, and provide great non-pushy/sales-y service. Just because you purchased a package from Cheapcaribbean.com does not mean the service stops. Awesome! THE NOT SO GOOD 1) OTHER ROOMS NOT IN PRESIDENTIAL: Initially we did not understand the difference between various rooms and sections that lifestyle had to offer (Tropical,Cofresi,Presidential,etc). Pay more for Presidential, it's worth it. We made some friends and their rooms at Tropical were small, not as nice, and even some times dirty. Presidential rooms were larger, had high ceilings, and were nicer overall. 2) WIFI: Wifi at Presidential was spotty. It worked sometimes and other times it did not. Better than nothing I guess. 3) DIFFERENT LEVELS: It does feel like a caste system. Just because you have access to some VIP sections does not mean you are "VIP and can get to all restaurants. Workers seemed to first look at your bracelet (which there are many different variations) then provide service according. Our "VIP" level did not allow us to go to certain beaches and/or restaurants. There were special sections for VIP off limits to peasants. The sports bar even turned on a certain channel for VIP members the same channel that we requested each of the 3 nights prior. 4) SALESMAN: Do not talk to the people in fedoras. They want to sell you timeshares. They are persistent and annoying. 5) BRAINWASHING: They try too hard to try to sell upscale timeshares. Crazy propaganda videos showcasing "helicopters" "stretch limos" that the average person cannot actually afford. CONCLUSION Even though we had a great time and met great people and wouldn't change our experiences for anything, I don't think we would go back. Not because it was horrible but because I feel as if we saw everything we could have saw and the propaganda of selling timeshares got annoying. Dealing with different levels of membership, VIP or not VIP, white bracelet or yellow bracelet, yada yada made us feel un-included even though we were staying at Presidential Suites section and had a decent package. It just seemed to get to us after a while and add unnecessary stress. If you are looking for a large resort with a a ton of dining options, great excursions, and things to do, this is your resort. If you didn't spend $20k or purchase a timeshare, it may or may not be for you.

Hotel Description

Presidential Suites Cofresi by Lifestyle: Indulge in this VIP Resort in Puerto Plata

The location of the Presidential Suites Cofresi by Lifestyle's resort in Puerto Plata, near two miles of the white sands of Puerto Plata's legendary Cofresi Beach, is special. And this all inclusive, all-presidential-suite resort has another special feature, the opulent KIN HA Spa. Featuring 17,000 sq ft of pampering paradise, this new, state-of-the-art facility boasts private treatment rooms, as well as steam baths, hot tubs, private guest lockers and a full fitness center.

Guests love being treated like a VIP at this Lifestyles resort in Puerto Plata and a sun-soaked vacation offers special perks like a VIPs-only private beach and two straight miles of legendary Cofresi sands. Enjoy a sizable, central private pool, complete with waterfalls, a nearby Jacuzzi, chic poolside loungers and a designated children's pool. Guests also have access to all the other pools in the Lifestyle resort complex.

Good food is the spice of life at this Lifestyle resort, and Puerto Plata specialties are waiting at six scrumptious restaurants. Guests find the New Orleans' style of French-inspired cuisine at Jazz simply magnifique, and the Asian flavors of Indochine's a la carte menu might have you dancing in the aisles. And what's dinner without a show, you ask? The resort offers nightly entertainment here and at its sister resort, Lifestyle Tropical, including an amphitheater with live shows and complimentary admission to the disco. And there are 15 bars offering everything under the sun to quench your thirst.

Rest and relaxation await in the aptly named King Suite, with its luxurious furnishings and upscale perks like an iHome stereo system, a mini bar, flat-screen TV and a Jacuzzi tub. On the morrow, we recommend you grab the munchkins for the free dolphin encounters, shark swims, tigers and more at nearby Ocean World (minimum-stay requirements apply).

For even more privacy, parents can drop the kids off at the resort's engaging and supervised kids' club and escape to one of the three nearby golf courses. Don't want to hear a single thing for an hour or two? Plan a scuba diving excursion instead.
