I cannot say enough about what an amazing vacation this was! Lifestyle Tropical is a 5 star resort hiding behind a 3 star rating. The staff goes above and beyond for you, the food was out of this world, the accommodations clean and comfortable, pools and beach area just beautiful, gardens maintained and are just lovely, the spa was a...

Yes the rooms needs updating but overall this place is so much fun. If you smile, engage in conversation and add a tip you will be guaranteed a good time and exceptional...

I would definitely rate this 5 stars except a few days before we experienced some complications with our room...which was stressful, but all worked out, as we got upgraded to a beautiful royal villa. It was absolutely amazing. The beaches were so pretty, and there were too many pools to count. There was excellent service and the food was really...

While the property has a lot to offer, business travelers will find the service lacking and rooms subpar. There are many small steps the resort could take to improve, but almost every request we made was met with "I'm sorry.....we can't. It is against our policy." If owners empowered employers and instilled the "customer is #1" mindset, this resort would...

rooms need upgrade. Room was always damp from the air conditioner. food was good. Resort grounds were very nice. The spa and the staff were very accomodating. Salespeople for lifestyle vacation were always trying to trick you to listen to their sales pitch.

My girlfriend and I stayed at this resort back in August 2016! The resort has the best staff I've ever met, Henry, Yehisson, Edwin, Wally, but Julio Nice stood out the most!

A very great place to vacation! Beach was gorgeous. Right next to ocean world. Room was average but you barely spend any time in there anyway. Don't be steared away from not having VIP access, it's true you don't have access to some things but you have access to so much that you don't even notice. VIP beach is awesome,...
