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 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.

Each week the resort hosts a welcome party complete with food, drinks, entertainment and a firework show. Sounds like the best way to celebrate vacay!

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.

Spend priceless hours of family time interacting with playful dolphins, clowning around with sea lions or swimming face to face with tigers.
