My kids and I went to the tropical in puerta plata for spring break... it was the most amazing trip the best team of entertainment around keeping my 10-year-old completely entertained and happy well my 17-year-old and I had a relaxing time on the beach. The amenities are amazing food is really good and the service is impeccable. A special shout out to the entertainment team at the tropical they are the best..

My wife and I, spend 2 1/2 months at the Lifestyle crown residence. We had a great vacation. Here are a few things that the resort can do to improve service to guests:

1- The crown residence and crown suites all have to be renovated to todays standards.

2- the crown residence all have a full kitchen however Lifestyle need to equip them with kitchen utensils, toaster owen, large fridge, pots and pans, etc.

3- New updated TV should be instal in all bedrooms.

4- 2 bedroom should have a safe in both bedroom not just one.

5- At sealavie beach, getting in and out of the cabanas is a little dangerous since you don't see the first step. That step should be painted yellow so that people are aware of it. We almost fell a few time and even the staff had the same problems.

6- When staff washing glasses at bars make sure they use soap and dish cloth. We have seen them using their fingers no soap and serving me pop in that glass.

7- Chef should be reminded to properly cook chicken, hamburger ( no red meat). No wonder people get sick. Uncooked meat usually happens when chefs are too busy.

8- Chef have to ease off on the salt, several meals were way too salty and not very good.

We had a beautiful 4 bedroom, 2 story villa that must have been at least 3000 square feet with a huge pool, covered patio, uncovered patio & a, king size covered cabana. Living room, dining room, full size kitchen and the refrigerator was kept stocked with bottled water, beer and sodas.All of the villas were different so it didn't look cookie cutter. It was all inclusive. The housekeeping services included freshly prepared breakfast every morning, over easy eggs, either omelet or scrambled eggs, bacon, pancakes, french toast, fruit, fruit juices, croissants, toast, rolls. The resort had another 1/2 dozen pools, beach, a dozen restaurants (Italian, Domenican Republic, seafood, Mexican, Brazilian, Steakhouse, buffets, etc.), bars and nightly entertainment. Restaurants were average to above average. However, 4 of 6 in our party were ill. An owner told us it was a 24 - 36 hour virus that was going around.
