Stretching along 1.5 miles of golden sands at Cofresi Beach, the jewel of the Amber Coast, lays the Lifestyle Tropical, the essence of a true tropical beachfront resort experience. The buildings are low rise Mediterranean style, amid Caribbean style thatched roofs and cobblestone walkways, comfortably blending with the surrounding mountain ranges and the sparkling silvery hues of the ocean.

URGENT: Unsafe Health conditions and bait and switch

Travel dates 9/16~9/22/12. I am a +25 year seasoned traveler with having been to many Latin American and Asian countries as well as previously having been to the DR. This is the first place that I have been where SO MANY people came down sick. Sitting at the airport on a AA flight delay, at least 30-50% of the people had become sick or had friends with them that did. Something is seriously wrong at this place and for those people who have been "Sold" memberships, you need be concerned about this. They really don't tell you much about making reservations when you arrive and as far as food, Bellini, Brazilan and Blue Lagoon food was decent but I recommend to stay away from the Mexican and Dominican. Generally the people were very friendly. Had one bad experience in one of the restraunts with a rude waiter and he was also in one of the worst dining experiences. Beach facilities were OK but not really much of a beach. We were in a typical developing country sytle hotel room but know that if they sell you their VIP membership +4k, the room and facility quality goes up significant. I wouldn't totally call this place a scam but certainly, many people including myself were not told that we were required to sit through a sales pitch. I had felt that I had checked it out throughly before booking but I should had done more on-line research. Shame on me. While the price per night wasn't bad, the airline tickets are where you lose out. For my money, I recommend to stay in the USA Gulf states where there is safe food handling and beautiful white beaches.

Worse place ever

The wrong place to go if you want to have a good vacation.. Bad customer service, no enough food, no plates available, had to wait 20 minutes for the plates to come out, not enough tables to sit, no desert, only three tables of foodfor about about 1000 people , food was really bad as well. no hot water, my mom got locked out of her room they gave her the wrong key and it was a 6 hours wait to get the right one. Dirty sheets, dirty and sticky floors..

Great couples getaway

This honestly was the best vacation i've ever been on!! My only regret was that we couldn't stay longer:( Only stayed for a weekend.. had to be back to work on Monday. While we were there we enjoyed the food, drinks, and the overall scenery. I would say the best part would definitely be the beach. The beds on the beach were awesome and the vip treatment we received was great!! They bring your drinks to you right on the beach!! The view from our room was gorgeous and breathtaking!! The one negative i would say is that after we had breakfast on Saturday morning, one of the hotel staff stopped us on our way to the beach and said that we needed to get our membership packet. We followed him to another part of the resort and we quickly learned that this was the part where they try to sell us a vip membership. I didnt mind it so much because we got a chance to tour the rest of the resort and see what all they had to offer. I cant wait to go back to Puerto Plata..next time we'll stay a full week

it was ok

The location is great. However, the staff members not always attentive to you. Yes, they are friendly, but still, might forget to bring what you ask, or even ask what you want. sometimes it was much easier to get what you want by yourself, because there were no staff members around you, or they even did not bother come to you. The food was ok, every night there was a certain theme, however, there was not so many choices to choose from. Almost same food every night. Also, sometimes, the food was not tasty at all. Room was ok, not big, but not small at the same time. They do clean rooms every day. That is a good plus! However, if something is not working, do not even bother to go to reception and ask about fixing it. They will not do anything. My balcony room was not opening, and even that I did ask for checking what was wrong, no one even came to do it.Still, because of not paying a lot of attention to all these details, it was a good time! The other bad thing, is that they do close the beach very early. Also, no internet in the room, or at other places. They only connection which you can get is on the beach, and lobby area. At the lobby they do charge for internet, in the beach they do not. They do have wi fi there, but at six o'clock they turn it off, because it is the time when the beach is closing.

Better than expected

For the price I paid it was better than I expected. For the most part, the group of 9 other family members I traveled with expressed the same sentiment. The VIP beach area was great, however, the beach itself wasn't nice. Rough waves and harsh sand mixed with shells. Not the type of beach you can relax in. The room was average and clean. The food was above average and I always found something that I liked. We only ate at the buffet for the 6 days we were there and it did start to get redundant. The drinks were awesome and top shelf at VIP beach. Front desk service was a hit or miss. I was told one thing by a receptionist and then told another by a different receptionist then I felt she was blaming me for the mix up. It eventually was resolved so I didn't let it affect my trip. Overall for the price I paid, I think I got way more my money's worth.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Definitely do the 27 waterfalls excursion. It is nothing like I or my group of 9 has ever experienced before. It was the highlight of our entire trip.

Heaven on Earth!

As a repeat patron to Lifestyle, I utilize both timeshare and hotel facilities several times a year. From the accommodations to the staff to the food, everything is top notch. This is the only resort I will consider using when traveling to the Dominican. My most recent trip was the best week's vacation of my life and I am planning a return trip in September! Thank you Lifestyle!

The best gateway

while my girlfriend and I were in there, we spent a lot of time in the pool because the bar was in the pool and we had a lot of drinks. Also around the pool area there was great animators whom made us laugh and enjoy our stay. The bar was great! The beach was also good. The hotel was clean. and the buffet (CASA BLANCA) was ok. Most waiters are very nice and professional. Most part is having to wait but its all becasue they are very busy. Besides that It WAS ALL GREAT!!!! EVERYTHING Clubs, employees, the experience that i would love to enjoy again there...
