Great place. Good time. Needs a little improvement.
"Overall we had a great time at this resort. Pleasant, friendly staff took great care of us. It took a little time to find which we're the better restaurants and bars, but we finally had it figured out. We rented a 3 bedroom villa that was wonderful with a few exceptions.
1. Upon arrival, the pool was dirty and it didn't get cleaned properly until day 3 of our stay.
2. One of the toilets in the bedroom was so small, you have to be a contortionist to get in and close the door (seriously!).
3. It would be great if the 6 seat golf carts were available to all villas. 3 bedrooms, 6 people, 4 seat golf cart???
5. Although VIP status, we were excluded from the best restaurant on the premises.
I Still think this is a resort you can fall in love with. I would opt for slightly different accommodations next time."

"We had such a great time staying there (2 weeks)! The place is very clean (Danni the caretaker cleans the place twice a week), very spacious, a good air flow, and very safe. The kitchen is well equipped, linens and beach towels. Beautiful garden, small swimming pool and gazebo at the back.
The apartment is attached to the main house yet very private.
Costambar is a very quiet gated community, very few traffic, so the area is pleasant to walk around without pollution or traffic noise. Beach is walking distance,10 min, so are the restaurants, 5 min, not a whole lot of choices but "Sole mio" was our favorite!
Getting outside Costambar you can take a motoconcho to the main road C5 or walk, and from there take a guagua (local bus) for a few pesos. 45 min to Sosua , 1 hour to Cabarete, it is worth it and gives you a real local experience!
But more importantly Yash and Hemu are the nicest hosts you can have, extremely helpful and friendly, any questions you can have, feel free to ask. They truly made our stay very special, we enjoyed sharing conversations with them. They are around minding their own life, yet available if you need need anything without being intrusive.
They do care that you are having a good time and that you are not missing anything. We had a few rainy days, actually torrential rains and Yash came to check if we needed anything or needed to go anywhere. On several occasions Yash drove us to the main supermarket in Puerto Plata and the currency exchange for best rate.
This is a place for a peaceful and relaxing stay, and we highly recommend this apartment.
We were sad leaving and of course cannot wait to be back!"

"Spent 1 week in a 4 bedroom villa with 3 girlfriends. Everything was amazing from start to finish. Having our own pool and golf cart was the ultimate. Having our morning breakfast prepared by our housekeeper was such an extravagance! We all felt like Queens for 7 days.. Our concierge Jesus was extremely attentive. He stopped by the villa each morning to check up on us and see if we needed anything. The resort is huge and there is certainly something for everyone. The restaurants are all good. Some better than others. We really liked Gourmet VIP and Indochine. The VIP beach party was soooo much fun! If you've never been sprayed with foam while dancing under the stars....you haven't lived yet!
The staff of the entire resort are all so pleasant. We all did spa treatments at Yin Yang Spa and it was beyond words. Pricing there is also really good. We booked four treatments at one time and were given an additional discount. We also did the Royal Dolphin Swim at Oceanworld. UNBELEIVABLE!! Some of us had done it before in Mexico and paid way more money for half the experience. 90 minutes in the water with 8 people, 2 dolphins and 2 trainers and included with the dolphins you also get to choose a sea lion or shark encounter. We chose the sea lions and it was just our group with 2 trainers and 2 sea lions for 1 hour !!! . Our group ranged in age from 34 to 53 and we all felt like kids.
We loved every minute of Lifestyles and dealing with Reed and Lisa was excellent. They made everything very easy and were always available to answer questions. We are already planning our vacation for next year and we are seriously considering the Lifestyles Resort in Cancun . If it's as good as Lifestyles in Puerto Plata then we are in!!"

"Nous sommes demeuré 4 semaines. Dans le condo il y a toutes les facilitées. Balcon intime alors nous avons pris tout nos repas sur le balcon. Le condo est à une minute de marche de la plage. La plage est bien. Nous avons passé des moments très agréable à la piscine en compagnie des autres locataires sur le site. Plusieurs bon restaurants à Costambar donc pas besoin d'automobile......"
