Great Hotel

Pros: The amenities and beach
Cons: Rooms
Location: The hotel was away from town about a 15 minute drive.
Overall great hotel but my room was more of a 3 star hotel, the maids kept it clean but I found roaches. I did not go crazy but it was a surprise.

The nicest hotel I had stay in.

The only thing I didn't like was the front desk people. To do my checking I had to wait for almost two hour because I didn't print out my confirmation email. But I live everything and the staffs near to the beach are the best.

Nightmare check in....not a friendly staff

Pros: Food selection
Cons: the service is horrible. the staff seems unhappy
Location: Go to Blue Bay resort, much better service
After a long flight I was finally happy to reach the resort but the experience at the front desk was just terrible. the agent (Erica) would not allow us to check in until we provide a paper with the reservation number; this is after she had our passports and confirm that we are in the system. The irony is that this hotel claim to be eco friendly! but I guess refused to go paperless!!!! spend more than 30 minutes at the front desk

I would not stay at this resort again!

Pros: Free breakfast, the breakfast buffet was good.
Cons: the only free internet was down by the beach area
My husband and I recently returned from our all inclusive trip to Lifestyle Tropical Beach Resort. Our hotel was a huge disappointment to us, even though the resort itself is pretty. We requested a king size bed, but upon arrival were given two queens instead, and the bed was very hard. The weather this time of year was very humid. We lost power in our room almost every day of our stay for at least an hour or more each time. We were without water three times during our one week stay, and when we did have water, often it was not heated and we had to take cold showers. Upon arrival to this resort, we were asked to go to a timeshare presentation. We advised that we were not interested in a timeshare but were pestered on a daily basis (even with phone calls to our room) until taking the "timeshare tour." We, of course did not purchase the timeshare but it was frustrating to us that on our vacation they would bother us with this in the first place. It would have been different if taking this "tour" was something we agreed to as part of our all inclusive trip, but it was not. I was not impressed with the gift shops on site either, although the Oceanworld gift shop which is about five minutes away was nice.

The Dancers/Motivators/Entertainment are worth coming again

Pros: great entertainment
Cons: Poor breakfast
I was there for 10 days with my sister and a friend last week (11/2011). The first day we were there they had no electricity or running water due to a storm. They say this happens often though they do not have back up generators. The floor of our rooms were always filthy because they wouldn't sweep after I went to the beach and tracked sand which is inevitable. The food is HORRIBLE. The first day it tasted good until we noticed that it's always the same food and they must be putting fillers in it. Everyone we met would complain about stomach pains, and I noticed that I couldn't even eat a quarter of the portions I usually eat. The service was even worse. I asked four days in a row if we could have drinking water in our mini fridge since their tap water is not potable. I ended up having to stock my fridge myself. The servers at the buffet were friendly if you tipped them. If you even look like you don't have a tip, get ready to go to the back and serve your own drinks. What made this trip worthwhile, and I would definitely go back, is the entertainment team. The dancers were amazing. The entire entertainment staff was so friendly, and they made us feel so welcomed. Every day and night it felt like hanging out with lifelong friends, and they always had fun activities planned. Even though it rained almost every day I was there, this group made the experience unforgettable. I would be willing to deal with the nasty attitude of the front desk people and walk on dirty room floors, even tolerate no electricity for a night, just so I could be around that group of entertainers again. I'm already planning my next trip there just so I can hang out with them again. It was THAT worth it. But it may not be your cup of tea if you're in your golden years; although, I did meat some excellent people also enjoying their stay as much as I was who were in their golden years. You just have to be active. I would recommend this resort if you're looking for active fun not necessarily relaxation.
