We like to provide a personal touch to your reservation process. Call us or email us and we will contact you ASAP. The best way to have a great vacation experience is to feel comfortable about your reservation. We make sure everything is completely arranged and all of your questions are answered long before you travel so once you are on your flight (not included), you can relax and be on a worry free vacation. As top notch service to my guests is my priority, I will promptly answer questions or concerns you may have. I want all my guests to enjoy all that Lifestyle has to offer to make their vacation a truly fantastic and unforgettable vacation experience!

To enjoy all the activities offered you really need a week but feel free to go as your schedule permits. We are confident you’ll want to come back.

There are 2 steps to the booking process. You would pay now for the room reservation to book your vacation, and when you arrive at the resort you would pay the All-Inclusive fee based upon the number of people arriving. This is an amazing value as it covers all your food and unlimited Alcohol for the duration of your stay.

Sunday night is an awesome Welcome Party that features live music, and a 1st class buffet, probably larger than you have ever experienced. A first class fireworks show caps off the show. Thursday night has a live entertainment party typical of a Vegas show. You will have access to the V.I.P Pool and Bar, free tickets to Ocean World for everyone in your party. Ocean world is located right on the edge of the property, and features Dolphin encounter (additional cost). Included is a free 9-hole round of golf per person, and complimentary airport transfers to and from the Puerto Plata airport (POP) or the Santiago Airport (STI). Few include in their booking complimentary transfer from Santiago airport. Usually this is a 120 to 240 add on. Gives you an additional airport to consider flying into.

Staying in the Presidential Condo you will have access to a private pool for Presidential Guests only, daily maid service, a fridge stocked with Water, Beer, Soda and juices all available for request when your Concierge stops by daily to see if there is anything you need. You can even request a limited amount of International Liquors to enjoy while in your Suite (one bottle per adult of your choice).

About John Wells

My wife and I have been traveling the Caribbean for over 20 years, and for the last 7 we have owned a Beach Front Property that we travel to once a month throughout the year. We continue to travel extensively throughout the Caribbean and have become Owners in the Life Style Holiday Vacation Club. We look forward to working with you in planning your trip to what we feel is one of the Best All-Inclusive experiences to be found in the Caribbean.

John Wells purchased this condo in 2013

Why John Wells chose Dominican Republic

The Best All-inclusive experience bar none. To many places throughout the Caribbean have become lax in their desire to provide award winning service. At LifeStyle Holiday Vacation Club you will experience that VIP level of service lost among most other resorts. LHVC- is a great place for both small intimate couples, or for large family or group gatherings. LHVC also offers Wedding packages.

What makes this condo unique

Life Style Holiday Vacation Club strives to provide a VIP experience like no other. Included is access to Four beaches, 14 Al la Carte Restaurants, and 2 Full Buffet restaurants. Not to mention entertainment including a welcome party that includes life music, on-stage dancers, and a FireWorks display. A massive Thursday night party, and other entertainment throughout the week. A variety of excursions are available for an extra fee. Most non-motorized water sports are included. Scuba Diving is available, and deep sea fishing. A great place to VACATION!

BEST STAY EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5

I traveled with 7 other friends for a Girls Getaway to LHVC. We had such a wonderful time and everyone kept asking how I found out about LHVC. The resort is beautiful and the Presidential Suite was amazing! This property is very plush, lush, and luxurious. It exceeds it's competition by far. I will definitely be coming back with my family hopefully sometime next year. We came to know and love the staff and we had no complaints at all.

Thanks again for everything!

Luxury to rival (beat?) Sandals Resorts

  • 5 of 5

Resort was huge, but we were prepared for that. What we weren't prepared for was how it actually looked like or better than the pictures!

John and Drake were both dreams to work with and this was our first time booking not through a travel agent, so we needed some hand holding. Everything went smoothly, driver was waiting at airport for us, and absolutely no surprises or disappointments with the accommodations.

We had a problem with a backed up toilet whe we first arrived and called maintenance, but then managed to fix it ourselves before they arrived. Managed to get reservations at all of the restaurants I wanted, just took visiting with our concierge daily which was only a few minutes and on our way anyway. Food was amazing and more restaurants onsite than you can possibly try in a week. Many beaches, each one filled with beach beds and never a problem getting one. We stayed in a 2 bedroom Crown Suite Penthouse (#7) which was right by the pool with a pool bar and the pool was deserted most of the day ... felt like we owned the place!

Only fly in the ointment were the tenacious salespeople who are NOT deterred with a polite no thank you (I had to be more forceful), but that is not a reflection on John or Drake. If we come back to this resort as we trying to convince our extended family to do, there is no one else I'd rather book through.

Thank you for the wonderful vacation experience.

Bait and Switch - Beware

  • 2 of 5

We booked our reservation 6+ months in advance and we were extremely disappointed when John Wells notified us 24 hours prior to our departure for the resort that we had been moved from a Presidential Suite to a Beach Suite.

Here is the email correspondence that we received. "Unfortunately, today the resort advised they would be relocating your confirmed 2 bedroom Presidential Suite into two Deluxe Beach Suites. With the Kosher restaurant being located in the Presidential Suite area and the Kosher program sold out during your dates; this is quite likely a contributing reason why the resort is relocating non-kosher Presidential reservations." John stated that same evening that there was nothing he could do, it was entirely the decision of the resort to make this last minute change. With that in mind, when we arrived at the property we asked VIP services if what John told us was true. Jennifer at VIP services said that John Wells had been told of the change at least 30 days prior to our departure and it was not her fault that we were not notified. John has since said that this was not true, so we don't really know where the truth lies. Now, with all of this in mind, it may not sound like a big deal to move from a Presidential Suite to a Beach Suite, but the accommodations are significantly different. As a comparison, we went from a reservation for a Five Star Hotel room to a Two Star Motel room. Granted, the shower was a little nicer (No kitchen, as shown in his pics), but hardly made up for the change. Further, there is an open raw sewage line next to the Beach Suites. Lastly, John talks of the VIP Gold bracelets and status. Yes, you get access to the VIP bars and restaurants (which is not bad), but what you get is a 'GM (Guest Member)' VIP bracelet. There are 4 real bracelet 'classes' - Chairmans Circle (white), Shareholder (black), VIP (gold), GM (also Gold). You are truly at the bottom of the VIP food chain. You will have no pull with VIP services when it comes to restaurant reservations or 'help' if you have an issue. As an example, we had no 'A/C in our room for the last 3 days of our stay. They said we had to talk to our 'owner John', as they could not help us. Bottom line, be careful. Talk to the owner about his status and what will truly transfer to you as a guest. We met other guests that were not relocated for the same timeframe. They said their 'owners' had the right 'pull'.

Owner's Response: NOT SO !!! GUESTS RECEIVED A $ 1000 Refund !!! And received two rooms to stay in. Guest unfortunately arrived at the resort during one of the worst snow storms on the East Coast. Airports were socked in, and guests at the resort could not leave. Resort advised, that they were unable to request guests to leave their accommodations (rightly so) so new arrivals were having to be re-located. On top of that there was a large Group staying in the Presidential Suites that further complicated the situation. As a result the guest was refunded $ 1000 dollars for the situation. He paid $ 25 per day in total for two rooms for 10 days. The re-location was done one day prior to his arrival, I inquired with the resort and could not track down the Jennifer that the guest talked with, Jennifer was not a management level employee. With the resort being overwhelmed and swamped with guests the VIP service department did the best they could with a bad situation. I was happy to be able to get the resort to refund a thousand dollars to this guest, others who were relocated were not given any refunds. Resort was under no obligation to issue a refund, for a situation beyond its control (Weather).

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a one week stay in the Presidential Suites. Accommodations were very nice, just as pictured. We had the two bedroom suite which worked out perfect for our group of 5. The resort and beaches are beautiful. Serenity beach was our favorite, private and very relaxing with a nice breeze. The other beaches are more lively and have more food options. You can also access the public beach from NV, lifestyle, and harmony where you'll find local vendors selling fruits and souvenirs. All the beach bars and grills were great. Everything from fast food and ice cream, to fresh made crepes and oysters. Service at this resort is impeccable! The staff are so friendly and will do anything for you. We really enjoyed the VIP treatment! We made friends with the bartenders at the sports bar and spent a lot of time there at night. We had dinner at Indochine (Asian) which was very good and Jazz (New Orleans style) mouthwatering filet. Since we went during high season we were not able to get all the dinner reservations we requested, so we found it's a good idea to grab a bite for dinner at one of the beach bars or go to Bellini's for a wood fired pizza before 5 pm. The Casablanca and Pearl buffets are also open for dinner, but we felt the food at the buffets to be average quality, nothing special. Our vacation began on Superbowl Sunday and they set up two areas of the resort with movie theater screens so the guys could watch the game. They even put on a halftime show! The weather was gorgeous our entire stay, in the 80's, no rain, light breeze. It's snowing right now where I live, so as I write this review I am sad we couldn't have stayed longer!!

John was very helpful throughout the booking process and answered all our questions before we arrived. And as another reviewer said you definitely want the GOLD VIP bracelets which you get booking with John. We met a few people that booked through Cheap Caribbean who were disappointed they did not get the same privileges that GOLD Member guests do. The resort is always trying to gain new members and they offered us a tour on the first day, however we just told them we were not interested and they left us alone for the rest of the week. Overall we highly recommend this resort for relaxation and VIP service. If you are looking for a thrilling excursion, check out atv-explorers.com. I booked an atv tour with them before we arrived and it was tons of fun!

Thanks again John for all your help!! We had a fantastic vacation!!

Relaxing vacation at the Royal Suites

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I booked a 1 bedroom suite through John from 12/25- 1/3 (9 night stay). The check- in was swift, the gold bands were given to us and we were on our way. John was very accommodating and answered all of our questions in a timely manner prior to us travelling. The resort is of a moderate size and it took us about 10-15 minutes to walk everywhere we needed to go. Our suite was modern and included a kitchen, a living room, a bedroom, and a balcony with a sofa, a table, and two armchairs. It was clean, the fridge was fully stocked with beers, sodas, and plenty of bottled water. We have no complaints about our accommodations; they were perfect.

Things one needs to know about Lifestyle Vacation Club:

1. It is a must to have at least a level GOLD bracelet, otherwise it will be impossible to get into any of the VIP restaurants. Even with the GOLD bracelets that John provided us during the busy holiday time, we only were awarded 2 VIP restaurant reservations in the whole 9 night period of our stay. That does not mean that one will be left with no choices: I recommend : TAPAS (VIP light fare), AZUL (excellent for lunch, great drinks), and Jazz for a VIP lunch- perfect, better than the buffets at Casablanca or Pearl.

2. Do not be afraid and venture out of the resort to explore on your own. Take a public bus for 20 pesos to the cable car or Puerto Plata- you will not be disappointed. It would be smart to learn some Spanish before you go if you don't speak any Latin languages- if you speak Italian, or Portuguese- you will be more than OK.

3. Be careful of the locals outside of the resort trying to sell you "taxi trips", rides, guide services etc. Better do it on your own.

4.Be ware of the sales people inside the resort trying to sell you memberships or tours, or spa packages. You can reserve your own SPA treatment with the GOLD bracelet at the two SPAS with a 30% VIP discount. We had two massages each and they were way better that what you get in the States or some parts of Europe. I highly recommend the Ying Yang Spa!

5. Remember- if you come to Lifestyle to relax- you will just do that, relax. If you come here for an action packed holiday- that is not the place.

6. The VIP parties are are the best parties I have ever seen at an all-inclusive resort. Not to be missed. The food is excellent and so is the entertainment.

Overall, I would recommend John as a trustworthy individual and his accommodations as excellent.

Perfect Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed at 3 locations when visiting the Dominican Republic this year and I have to say that our stay at the Lifestyle Holiday Resort was by far the best. We went during their peak season which made some of the accommodations unavailable, but on the other hand we met a lot of great people. The presidential suite was amazing and I wish we stayed there longer. Thanks John for such a great experience, hopefully we can do it again next year!
