Where do I begin. Stayed Nov 11-18. Lets start by saying I was a little nervous once I booked after reading some of the reviews. But I am so glad that I came to Tropical Lifestyles. The staff from front desk to all departments were amazing with me. I loved my room in building 5. Very modern and my maid was amazing (sorry I didnt get her name). The restaurant staff were all very nice and always smiling and very friendly. Entertainment staff was also amazing. My favorite place was the V.I.P beach. I cannot say enough about the staff except thank you William/willy, Vincent and the rest of the staff as I cannot remember all your names for all you did and your hard work. You really go above and beyond and are amazing. And yes David the bartender he always smiled and looked after everyone. Super friendly and does his job awesome. Thank you David. In a nutshell I just want to thank all the staff at Tropical Lifestyle for a fantastic week of rest and relaxation. I will be back for sure. Just remember a good morning, please and thank you go a long way with a smile.
P.S... you should really think about free WIFI for the whole resort. That would be an added bouns.
We had a really killer deal thru Expedia so were not expecting the best. Shocked when treated like cattle at the check in. Went to the room where the ceiling was leaking water. Guy came to fix it but never fixed. Room was freezing as the A/C wasnt working right. The beds were ok. No bugs. The bathroom was the worst. Moldy and smelly. Water sprayed all over the bathroom. The furniture is very dated and broken.
Now for a couple of positives. The staff was very friendly to us. Especially the bartenders. They were attentive to us always. The grounds are beautiful and we loved the Zen spa. Massages were great and we enjoyed the tranquil atmosphere there.
A couple of negatives tho. Do NOT give the timeshare people the time of day. After a couple of days with us ignoring them they left us alone. We heard horror story after horror story of people being taken on tours and get them liquored up then the huge push to buy. Another thing, the food is mediocre at best. I hear there are better resorts in the area. Will not go back.
