About the property

Awesome All Inclusive Plan, includes Airport transfers.

There are two parts to the reservation process. We collect for the reservation and payment of the room, and when you check in at the resort you will pay for the All-Inclusive portion. Once you provide us with your flight information, we will arrange your complimentary airport transfer to the resort from either Puerto Plata (POP) or Santiago (STI).

The Lifestyle Holiday Vacation Club is located along the Northern Coast of the Dominican Republic and is one of the best kept secrets of the Caribbean that we have discovered in our 20 years of traveling the Caribbean. A great place to vacation!

As Chairman’s Circle/Platinum Supreme Shareholders of the Resort, we can extend many of our benefits to our guests. We can extend to you the Gold Bracelets with your booking, which would give you access to the Member only areas of the resort.

• 12 Al La Carte Restaurants for Dinner Reservations.

• 2 Full Service Buffets For quick meals or late night snacks.

• Complimentary round-trip airport transfers from “EITHER” the Puerto Plata airport (POP) or Santiago Airport (STI). Few include in their booking complimentary transfer from Santiago airport. Usually this is a $120 to $240 add on. This gives you an additional airport to consider flying into.

About John Wells

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.

I’ve never been “wowed” until this trip!

  • 5 of 5

I have so many wonderful things to say. John and Drake were so accommodating to my million and one questions and always seemed to have an answer. I was extremely grateful for them. The resort was AMAZING. I upgraded to the gold bracelet and it was well worth the extra cost. Compared to the other guests staying on the resort with the blue bracelets, let’s just say that the gold will make your trip better than you imagined. Better options for dinner.. I had a raving steak and lobster for my birthday, like I deserved!. I was treated like royalty! Con: I hated the guys that were soliciting us on the first full day on the resort but if you keep saying NO eventually they will leave you alone. Don’t fall for the “please, this is for my kids” or “I will lose my job” lines.. just say no unless you are truly interested. The food at the buffets for breakfast and lunch were pretty good.. a lot of different options - I recommend taking a probiotic at least two weeks prior to your arrival. The VIP beaches were amazing w/ cabanas and plenty of staff waiting on us.. I felt like I was in paradise. The pictures of the room are accurate and they are actually ten times better bc they are the newer rooms at Cofresi. My view was ehhh.. I could see part of the ocean and NV beach — they were fixing up NV beach during my stay and ironically opened it back up the day I was leaving :) . We had transportation to and from the airport which was so great and saved us money. I would recommended bringing around $100USD for tips depending how generous you are. The shuttle that takes you around the resort was so useful and I think the longest I waited for one was 3-5 mins. Make sure to read the passport book you are given on your first day.. you’ll see the beaches you have access too and can plan an awesome trip this way. There was so much to do and I loved every moment of this trip.

A little something for everyone

  • 3 of 5

The beaches weren’t the greatest, but still nice. The food wasn’t the greatest, and we went home with food poisoning. Still a very enjoyable vacation.

Beautiful resort, comfortable room, awesome beaches - all inclusive is great!

  • 4 of 5

Things I loved:

- the resort is beautiful. The landscaping is so nice, almond trees and palm trees everywhere. The buildings and pools are also super nice.

- The beaches were great! There were lots of cabanas and beds and hammocks to lay in. Nothing better than laying on the beach with a nice breeze going by.

- the food/drink were easy to access and available almost all the time. You won't go hungry or thirsty. The pizza was really good!

- the staff was SO willing to help and serve you. They were friendly and really made our stay more enjoyable.

Things I didn't love as much:

- some of the beaches were very crowded and other guests would "reserve" cabanas and sun beds with a book or towel all day without even being on it. It would have been nice to know that you had to wake up early to reserve a cabana some days.

- Our party got sick on the second night and all of the third day and because of that we spent an entire day in bed/bathroom throwing up. I talked to several other guests at the resort who also got sick from something and had to spend a large portion of their vacation puking. We didn't drink the water from the tap, so we are not sure if it was from the buffet or other food that was included.

- if you get VIP/all-inclusive they will try and sell you the resort/get you to buy a share or portion of it. It was a little annoying to be bombarded with this.

All that said, it was a beautiful resort and a lovely experience. We were treated extremely well and loved the beaches and pools. We never had to go far to get a drink or some food. Very relaxing.

VERY impressed with the suite

  • 4 of 5

The booking process was completely effortless. Drake made the entire thing a breeze. All emails were usually returned w/in an hour and all questions were thoroughly answered. The suite itself was pretty awesome. It was HUGE w/a great view and awesome bathroom. The VIP bands were totally worth it, as the regular bars only have off brands liquors. The VIP bars is where they keep the good stuff. Plus the staff seems to be a little more attentive when you have the gold bands.

The entire property was excellently maintained, but it's quite massive and you can very easily get lost. Also, if you're looking for rest & relaxation, this is the place for you...not too much else going on if you're looking for a party scene.

Disclaimer: This is about the sales staff only. No bearing whatsoever on how awesome Drake was.

My only issue was the EXTREMELY aggressive sales pitch. The gentlemen called my room at 8am & told me he was coming to pick me up. When I asked "who/what/where/when/why" I got the run around. Finally I talked him into showing up at 10:30 (still not knowing why he was coming). Of course, he was knocking on my door at 10:15. I wanted breakfast & that's where he took me. What he failed to mention was that it was on the other side of the resort conveniently located right near the sales office, which I was escorted to after breakfast. After I politely declined the pitch, then declined again to his manager, I was cast aside like a used napkin lol!! I had to find my own way back to my building, where I was able to enjoy the rest of my trip.

The suite was GREAT, the staff friendly & helpful and property well maintained.
