The Crown Villas at Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Resort
Ranked #14 of 40 Hotels in Puerto Plata
Reviewed 17 January 2010

7 out of 10, awesome staff. the beach was not to great but it sure is a good place to go and get some rest and kick back. If you are in the mood for a party, would not suggest it.

Stayed: February 2009, travelled with friends

We had been to this resort 12 years ago when it was fairly new ... Major improvements over the years -..We originally stayed in a 3 bedroom villa through RCI, Very nice, but needed a little upgrade for a/c in the common rooms, but bedrooms had a/c. We were moved to a 5 bdrm villa and then a 6bdrm (we were 6 ppl) after purchasing a membership at the resort- BOTH VILLAS WERE BEAUTIFUL, OWN POOL, CHEF COOKS BREAKFAST IN MORNING, MAID SERVICE. ALL WAS EXCELLENT!!

We enjoyed our stay at LHVC Crown Villas immensely due in no small part to the efforts of Andrea, our concierge. From the moment that we met, she made us feel special and went out of her way to ensure that our every wish was fulfilled - it was like having our own personal genie in a bottle!

The VIP Beach was stupendous - right out of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous! We also had a pool in the backyard of our fabulous villa and enjoyed made to order breakfast every morning on the patio beside the pool.

It was a vacation to remember!

Although not a 5* as claimed, quite enjoyable, nice facilities, and a superb concierge named Andrea,who ensured anything we needed was available to us. Her background as an animal trainer enabled her to ensure we were kept comfortable and happy with the resort. The staff at all levels were helpful, and our cook Judy made great breakfasts. Other food was average, try and book the VIP restaurant, the Italian was terrible.

Dolphin encounter next door at Ocean World was great.

Service is what this resorts does best. You get a personal concierge. Ours was the fabulous Andrea Feuer, she was there to satisfy our every need. Even if the answer was initially NO, she found a way to make it happen every time. Another strong point for the resort is the food--amazing!!! Usually all inclusives end up being the same old stuff repackaged day after day. The selection of good food was amazing, especially the Sunday beach welcome party. The villa was very nice, especially the pool area.

Your experience at this resort all depends on how you get there. If you are an owner or rented directly from an owner - good for you! God help you If you get there from RCI or some other timeshare deal. You'll pay twice as much for the all-inclusive package as the owners and even if you pay for VIP access you won't get a golf cart and you can only eat at the best restaurant a couple of times.

The villa and pool we had were very nice but only the bedrooms were air conditioned - go figure! The buffet food is pedestrian at best - stay away from it if you can. The sushi, food, and service at the VIP beach was very good. Six out of the seven us came down with diarrhea at some point during the trip and we didn't leave the resort the whole time we were there.

Forget about shopping while you're there and make sure you don't forget anything because you'll pay through the nose for things if you can even find what you're looking for.

There was also a lot of construction going on while we were there, they don't take credit cards for any of the extras like golf, and the "free golf" I got offered cost me over a 100 USD. It was a goat track with used balls!!!!!

It's still a very beautiful place and if you rent directly from an owner (check the internet) you'll have a much better experience not to mention cheaper.

We stayed at a nice 4 BR villa, booked it through the member who is a friend. It had a personal pool, a chef came every morning to make us breakfast, we had a bbq at our pool one night, which was really good (lobster!). Maid service, golf cart, etc. The VIP party was wonderful, music, etc. They restocked fridge every day (per our requests) with pretty much anything we wanted. I can't say that the buffet food was amazing, but VIP gourmet restaurant was very good.
We booked though this website:
