My family stayed at this resort in January 2017. We did not receive the accommodations we purchased upon check-in. The lady was very rude, and reported she only had a king garden room for THREE ADULTS! We reserved a superior ocean view with two queen beds. The room we received had water leaking from the ceiling, mold thriving in the...

Overall the resort is pretty nice. The units are very nice and comfortable. The food is OK. The beach is somewhat terrible. Nothing around the resort to walk to, so you need a taxi / tour to go to town.

Despite my initial skepticism, Lifestyles truly provided a vip experience. The resort has the feel of a campus with its various beaches, restaurants and pools. Providing incredible parties and shows, the resort really gives you a balance of excitement and relaxation. perhaps the best part of the trip though we're the people I was fortunate enough to meet. The only...

Had an awesome time overall. Went with friends and enjoyed the VIP perks (bought trip on groupon) However, the hotel is swamped in cats! I have a severe cat allergy so this was very difficult to deal with. I also feel like regardless, youre on vacation in a luxurious VIP resort, you dont want to deal with stray cats. However,...
