"We got back on Sunday for the best week ever in Puerto Plata. This was our 7th time at Lifestyle but the first time in the villas. Our villa was lovely. It was not brand new but very clean and neat and so cute. Upgrading to a gold band is definitely the way to go. I can't tell you how impressed we all were with the restaurants and especially the beaches. Serenity beach was our favorite and the crepes were so delicious we could not get enough. The service we received from all the staff was beyond compare at the beaches, restaurants, bars and in the villa. We enjoyed swimming before breakfast while smelling the delicious food cooking and the golf cart that we were supplied made it possible to explore more of the resort and adjoining Cofresi Palms resort. The Sunday party was cancelled due to rain but we did get to go to Ocean World for the first time. It was really nice and the dolphin and sea lion shows were so entertaining. We also went to 27 waterfalls which is amazing. I would recommend to anyone who wants to see what the country is like in the D.R. IT IS STUNNING.
Thank you so much for letting us book through you and your family. As promised, everything was taken care of before arrival and we had no problems whatsoever in getting to the resort and checking in. We even got reservations at Jazz for our first night which was delicious. We will definitely be back and will book through you again."

"We arrived to find the colorful establishment tucked behind a children’s school and a lush palm grove. Maximo, the innkeeper, greeted us graciously and maintained the same positive and helpful attitude throughout our stay. There were many sleeping rooms to choose from, three in the downstairs main house (one includes its own bathroom, the other two share a bathroom,) the luxurious master bedroom/spa bathroom upstairs offers a large and private sundeck, and then of course there is the smaller private cabana perched right on the ocean’s edge. The downstairs living room couch boast an elaborate train of pillows as well as a nice sound system and TV with ample stations. The Sea Dog is appropriately decorated with kitchy pirate and island themed flags, banners, and posters. The colors of the Sea Dog (seafoam green, salmon, and light yellow) compliment the surrounding flowers and the nearby ocean water. This brings me to the highlight of this fine Inn…. THE INFINITY POOL OVERLOOKING THE OCEAN! You can gradually walk into the warm pool like entering the sea and float around for hours or read a book under the man-made waterfall. When my young cousins arrived they were ecstatic over “la piscina” and spent all day splashing and playing on the multitude of pool floats. In my times out of the water I would lounge on one of the multiple lawn chairs or the sitting hammock. On my first day Maximo even cut me down a coconut and stuck a straw in it, the fresh coconut milk/water was delicious. The pool and patio not only offer a breathtaking view of the ocean and surrounding cliffs… there is a staircase down to your own private beach. It is a small rocky beach, and it is all yours, sometimes you can see boats, cruise ships, or lobster hunters out in the distance but no one comes ashore. Just a short drive from the Sea Dog are many local hotspots such as Playa Grande (the most stunning beach!,) a great tiki pizza place (2 for 1 on Wednesdays,) La Hotel Catalina (has a divine restaurant,) Manny’s (excellent bar and restaurant) and Lagoon Gri Gri (where you can take a boat ride through caves to a local beach.) At the Sea Dog there is a grill and a full kitchen, so you can also choose to eat every meal at home if you are not in the mood to explore or spend more money. The Sea Dog is a beautiful and affordable paradise in a gorgeous location, perfect for families or a zen getaway."
