The Residence Suites in Puerto Plata offers a mixed experience, according to guest reviews. While the grounds and pools are well-maintained, and the service is often praised for its excellence and promptness, some travelers have had less favorable experiences with the amenities and value, citing restrictions and unmet expectations. The atmosphere around the pools can be disruptively loud, and while some rooms are appreciated for their cleanliness and updates, others are criticized for maintenance and cleanliness issues.

My wife and me just returned from LHVC at Puerto Plata. We stayed at Residence Suites (we wanna say Thanks to Rosa from front desk who helped us a lot to navigate at that huge resort). it is a nice place. LHVC is a huge resort with nice beaches, and although there is a shuttle bus to drive you inside the resort we found out it was not that far to walk from our room to main beaches and restaurants like Tropical, Pearl. The staff at the resort are friendly and ready to help you anytime, there are security everywhere, so it is safe, every staff member wear masks and follow all sanitation measures necessary during the pandemia.
We were pleasantly surprised by nice weather in Puerto Plata in the second half of March - no humidity but nice pleasant weather with lots of sunshine.

While it was a nice place for where we were, we will never go back to another LHVC property again. The actual workers there are great and helpful, Jordi at the front desk of the Residence area gets all the stars for being helpful and switched us right away to the room that was pictured, not what we got. The original room they put us in was so old and had paint chips in the tub from it peeling. Wouldn't pay money to stay in that room, but the ones you see pictures of are decent and it met all our needs. If you love being hassled by people while you are sitting at the pool or in their beach areas then this is your place! You will have countless people from the spa trying to sell you on a massage and will wait outside of your room to get you, and the LHVC people will approach you at breakfast or wherever trying to get you to go on a tour to buy into their timeshare. None of them, as we called them Vultures, will take no for an answer. And they know you and will continue to approach you until you say yes so if you say no to one, doesn't matter because more are coming. As a timeshare member you do not get access to the entire resort, you only get certain restaurants, pools and beach areas so keep that in mind when booking. We didn't know this until the day before we left which was a disappointment. There also is no real beach area so if you want to lay out and enjoy beach time you have to go somewhere else. The cabanas off the beach are nice and have sand and mini pools but not quite the same as laying directly on the beach. The beach also closes at 6 so no nightly strolls or sunset walks can be had. The nightly show is great so I highly recommend that but since it was low season all the activities were basically non-existent since no one was there to do them. So for us the only thing to do from dinner until the 9:30pm show was the casino which was a bummer. The communication at the resort was okay but frustrating at times. Everyone seems to tell you something different so if you can, just talk to your main person at the front desk. The food was all very good and you can eat at a different restaurant every night which was great. Make sure you make the reservations for each night the day you get in so you don't have to do the buffet unless you prefer that. Lunch and breakfast is buffet only but it is decent and the pizza is very good. And for my coffee people, they do not have creamer so if you like that you will need to bring some from home.

Resort is ridiculous

Fee for internet for each phone $45 is just too much

Where local small resort free router in your room to stream 2 movies is the norm….

Beach garbage cans not emptied in 2 weeks we were there

Wind blowing the plastic cans and garbage everywhere

Food was only good in 2 restaurants

Rest was just mediocre

Staff not trained. Not know tge difference between deposit for umbrella or pay for umbrella



Map of the resort same as we had 20 years ago just terrible

No cart rentals allowed?

But if good map was present it could have saved a day or two of misery



High pressure sales manager was actually rude.



Other restaurant staff arrogant not realizing custumers not familiar with the process should not give rude attitude to clients.



Ac system old Bedrooms no screen on windows

So could not leave window open at night mosquito issues.



Only one TV

In living room should have TV in bedroom also

Rainy days are tough with only one TV.



Old people like us need to sleep separately



Not having a couch witch folds out is a pain



Couch was painful to sit on on rainy days for any length of time



Julie please chime in anything I missed?



Tibor

978-987-9402



Also pools are not used as music is so loud No one wants to be in some of the pools

Try to book excursions not possible with music so loud it was painful to try to understand staff.



DR not recycling is horrible

I had read some sketchy reviews about this property recently, so I was a little concerned, yet we found it to be a great experience. The food was absolutely excellent. Even the buffet spots we're really good. The a la carte restaurant options were excellent. As we were there for 2 weeks we tried them all. Some of them weren't exactly our type of food yet the ones we did like were awesome. Really enjoyed the Brazilian steakhouse (Radizio) and Trapiche. Of the multiple areas within this whole resort area, the Residence/Crown suites are easily the quietest which was a treat. Staff was super friendly and very helpful if we needed anything. Our air conditioning kicked out one night so our room ended up with water all over the floor and walls from the humidity and they had it cleaned up even before we had finished breakfast. Timeshare sales folks weren't too aggressive and once we passed on their offers, they left us alone. Only thing that is difficult about being there is the shuttles take forever as they have to stop at all resorts. We ended up just walking everywhere which was actually easier. That would be a very difficult walk though for seniors or those with disabilities

Our family enjoyed a very relaxing stay at the Lifestyle Crown Residence Suites. After reading some negative reviews, we were a bit worried but our fears were put to rest as we entered the resort. We were greeted warmly at the reception desk, our bags were promptly delivered by Melbing, who was a delight throughout our stay. Everything was explained regarding how to move around the resort, which options we had for meals and beaches, nightly entertainment, etc. Our RCI concierge, Ms. Joanna, was wonderful assisting us to make dinner reservations. We were able to try a different restaurant each night and had a hard time deciding which dinner was the best since they were all outstanding! Our suite was recently renovated and many suites were undergoing renovation while we were there, yet we were not disturbed with noise. Our room was comfortable with two king beds, small kitchen, nice comfortable sofa with plenty of seating, and an outdoor patio overlooking the terraces and pool which were just outside our door. Any need we had, such as more water or towels, was promptly met. The grounds and pools were continuously cleaned and maintained, shuttle service was prompt whenever we needed a lift to another area of the resort. While the resort is walkable, it can be alot of walking so we alternated between walking and riding. While our vision of lounging on the beach and going in the water was a bit different, we had a large beach seating area overlooking the water with a narrow beach and red flags during our stay. It was easy to grab chairs or beach beds and beautiful to overlook the waves and water and relax. We traveled with our young adult daughters whose vision was to soak up the sun and this was the perfect location for that. We took one day excursion on the cable car/Puerto Plata and highly recommend. Multiple other tours are available but a broken foot kept us mostly at the resort. We felt safe at all times and the staff everywhere was exceptional. Next time, we would pack umbrellas or rain ponchos as we learned it was rainy season and the rain did come and go a few days with sunshine in between. We did this as an RCI trade at an exceptional all inclusive special and considered this a great value for the exceptional vacation we had. And yes, this is a selling resort so we were approached to pick up our "welcome" gift. When we firmly stated we absolutely were not interested in touring and purchasing, we met with no resistance and were on our way.

I’m a very low level member at LHVC. Spent a week at the Residence Suites in late February with my girlfriend and her daughter who is 18. We had a two bedroom that had a living area, bedroom, and bathroom downstairs and bedroom upstairs. There were balconies on both floors. King beds in both bedrooms. Only tv was in living area. Unit was a little dated but nice. Not much of a kitchen but who needs one at an all-inclusive. Plenty of hot water but shower head kept falling unless it was used as a hand held. Walls were a little thin. We could hear the neighbors talk in the evening while we were getting ready for dinner but it was very quiet at night in that area of the resort. We were disappointed to find that Serenity Beach was closed and that NV Beach was much smaller than it used to be but we still had a great time at Harmony Beach. We were also a little disappointed at first that with my membership we were assigned a restaurant each night. However, we were happy with their selections (pleasantly surprised to get the gourmet restaurant twice). Times were a little later than we would have liked but we were able to get in earlier than scheduled most nights. As always, Ricardo at the Presidential Suites Bar provided excellent service and was very entertaining. We are looking forward to our next trip to LHVC.

This was one of the worst trips ever. I am a disabled individual. The accommodations were minimal for my wife and I. We were unable to move around the huge property because there were no mobility accommodations. I was in so much pain from walking to eat and trying to get in and out of attractions. We had to rush to find food before 10 pm because all the restaurants were closed. We were sold on having a Butler service but was told there was none when we arrived. We were also sold on having all inclusive accommodations but found that many of the resorts premium accommodations were for members only. I feel cheated and lied too. I will never come here again. The full kitchen was for show because there no pots, pans, utensils and there was no where to buy food. The only plus was the people who worked there. The wifi was sub-par, expensive and did not work. I was unable to use needed technology during my stay. I am only giving a star because I have too.

Your experience at this resort will change a lot depending on a number of factors. We stayed for a week with our family and a couple others . Out of a total of 11 of us, 8 of us got sick at some point with stomach issues. In each case it cleared after 24 hours, but it seemed like we were dealing with a person not feeling well every day we were there. In talking to others staying at the resort, our experience was not at all isolated. The resort itself appears clean and they seem to take necessary precautions at the buffets and restaurants (that we can see), yet something is not working.
The complex itself is sprawling. It is composed of many different 'resorts' all sharing a huge property under the Life Styles umbrella. We stayed at the Residence Suites which is definitely on the lower end of the spectrum compared to other properties in the complex. It was a bit dated, but everything worked fine. It worked for what we needed, however, we had friends staying at the Presidents Suites and there was a huge difference in comfort and space compared to their room.
Shuttles connect all the different places you can eat and hang out. Walking was fine for us, however most people rode the shuttle or golf carts. The golf carts are all over the place and have gas engines. They sound and smell like go-carts and in my opinion take away from the beauty of the place. There are many options for beaches and pools to hang out at, although as a non-member of the Life-Styles vacation resort only about half were open to us. While that left still plenty of options, many nicer place will be off limits.
The food was a mixed bag too. In the beginning of our stay I found the buffets to be quite decent, but by the end of the vacation it was a little tiresome. Although there are three buffets, they are not that much different from each other. There are also a number of restaurants on the property you can make reservations for. Staying at the Residence Suites only allowed us to book reservations on half the nights. The restaurant food wasn't much better than the buffet food in my opinion, but was good for changing things up a bit.
The excursions were good. Ocean World was excellent and very close by. The Waterfall's hike was a lot of fun (not for kids though).
Overall, I am happy we went, but probably wouldn't go back. The property is beautiful and safe but there are too many other places to explore and you definitely feel like a second class citizen coming from RCI.

We were very disappointed with our stay. We choose this resort because of what they advertised and how the pictures looked. Unfortunately, it was the opposite, be careful on the all-inclusive because we booked through RCI they said we were limited to what the all-inclusive included like our kids not being able to go to the waffle house or the ice cream parlor. The 2 bedrooms states they will sleep 6 (2 beds and a sofa couch) this is also incorrect. the sofa was a concrete bench with a cushion. 2 bedrooms only sleeps 4, while the other room had a single roll away bed in the middle of the living room. There was also tiny bugs throughout the rooms, not very comforting. You are limited to the beaches, dining areas and other areas you can enter, several of them are for "Members or Owners Only". You will not get golf carts as we were told we were going to get to travel around the resort! One of the swim up pool bars was very low on water. The front desk said there wasnt a problem but everyday the level was dropping to the point that we couldnt even use the pool. The photographs of steak and lobster dinners wont happen, they dont even have lobster! The steak house is not all you can eat, you get to eat at that particular restaurant one night during your stay. There is no real sushi bar, only what appeared to be the store bought sushi packs and they were terrible. Point blank this resort was false advertising. The RCI concierge at the resort, Fanny, was no help at all. The all inclusive company that you go through for this resort is a joke also. You cant get a call back from anyone to try and get help!! You have already paid for the trip and are in another country, Nobody seemed to care that we werent getting what we paid for, Bad business all around.

The staff, pools, cleanliness were excellent, food was good, needs better internet reception (it's 2G). Better signage is needed to navigate where certain restaurants are. Navigating the resort shuttle stops was confusing on the first day, drivers could announce the next stop. Covid testing was simple, quick and complimentary. Be aware non-motorized activities and spa saunas are closed due to pandemic.
