About Doug Strickland

I grew up in Florida and after graduating from Florida State University moved to California. I discovered an affinity for travel during my surfing expeditions and am fortunate to have traveled to nearly every corner of the globe. My love for travel is not only about surf, beautiful scenery or discovering new and exotic lands. What made it a passion for me was meeting new people and learning about their culture. In doing so my awareness and appreciation for the world as a whole increased exponentially. It also made me want to invest in a beautiful place called Dominican Republic and enter the travel industry. Being a passionate traveler I make sure all my clients needs are met and that their experience is a memorable one. I definitely treat my clients how I would want to be treated.

Props to Doug for an amazing trip

  • 5 of 5

I was apprehensive about booking this place/resort. I had read some pretty bad reviews (also some great one though!) but decided to risk it for my 40th birthday. Someone else did the legwork booking through Doug and it was a GREAT experience. Doug was prompt in all his responses and was incredibly accommodating with our requests. The only thing I wished was to be able to ask for the villa shown in the picture. The policy is that you get what is available at check in. We were a group of 12 and thought we'd get a 7 bedroom villa. But because half the group was leaving earlier they split us into 2 villas, which made sense. We were across the street from each other so it was perfectly fine. The villas were great! Nicely furnished and clean. The master bathroom needs a little upgrading in the shower but other than that it was perfect for our group. They were doing construction outside of our villa (located next to one of the helipads) so it was loud in the mornings and would serve as an alarm (lol). Best advice I can give to anyone visiting Lifestyle: splurge for the upgrade to VIP. Its worth it! Special thanks to Doug for making this one of the best birthdays/vacations ever!
