The Best Vacation at LHVC!

  • 5 of 5
My guests and I had the greatest time at LHVC. This was our 2nd time staying there and we stayed during the Memorial Day weekend 2014, but this time Lynn had the most beautiful Villa reserved for us. We were literally shocked and amazed. I really love the LHVC resort, it my top Caribbean resort and I would recommend dealing with Lynn or staying at the resort to anyone.
Lynn thank you so much, you always exceed my expectations. I think I will book a trip for my moms birthday next year, so look out for an email from me (again)!

This all-inclusive resort is a busy, working mother’s delight!

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from the best vacation I have ever had and I’ve travelled all over the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, Bermuda, Europe) This was, however, my first “all-inclusive” vacation. My husband found Lynn’s listing on VRBO. She was wonderful to work with from day one and sent me all the information regarding the villa and the resort well in advance. We knew exactly what to expect from airport pick-up to our departure. Our villa, 2C, had been recently renovated and was right on the beach. The employees at the resort are so professional and kind. They really seem to like their jobs. The resort is immaculate. The food was fantastic. We ate fresh fruit and vegetables every day. We definitely got our money’s worth from the all-inclusive fees because we drank our share of alcohol as well too. We were able to get reservations for five nights at the many resort restaurants. We only had to eat at the buffet restaurant one night and the food/service was still excellent.

Our favorite beach was Serenity. My daughter and I were each able to read four books. I did not do one dish, make one bed, go to the grocery store, do laundry, pay bills, clean a thing, etc. This all-inclusive resort is a busy, working mother’s delight. I loved the fact that the children couldn’t text or go on social media. I also loved trying out our very basic Spanish skills. The staff got a kick out of us trying and by the end of the week I was feeling somewhat proficient!

We only had a few minor issues while we were there. We found a very large spider in the powder room on the first floor one day. This could possibly have been because we left the doors open to the villa off the pool. We also had a crab find his way in one day for the same reason. They were doing construction on the path behind the villa and the workers used our backyard to access the hose which became bothersome at times. I reported this to Luis and Carlos our VIP representatives and they took care of the problem.

Totally relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was one of the most relaxing, stress free vacations we have ever had. I was a little nervous about booking a trip on the Internet, through an individual, in another country but there was not one thing from start to finish that was not exactly as described.

The moment we exited the door of the airport the Lifestyle Resort staff was there to pick us up, drove us to the resort, checked us in, drove us to our villa, sat down with us and set up all of our meal reservations and explained the layout of the resort.

The villa was beautiful, clean and very well maintained. Each of the three bedrooms have their own private bathroom. The backyard is amazing and having your own swimming pool was so nice. All of this and you wake up each morning to the smell of coffee brewing and breakfast cooking!

We did several of the excursions offered at the resort and were happy with each one. The snorkeling at Paradise Island was second only to Belize.

The only thing that we thought was just so so was the food at the restaurants. The night we were scheduled at the Italian restaurant they ran out of lasagna for the day and the night we ate at the Asian restaurant we left and walked straight over to the buffet restaurant and were in line with three other families who had also just left the Asian restaurant.

As business owners, whose phones ring nonstop, the day we spent at Serenity Beach felt like heaven on earth. That is the the most beautiful, relaxing beach we have ever been.

Thank you Lynn for your amazing vacation home!

Awesome Vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing vacation!!

We stayed in 2 3 bedroom villas right next to each other. They were the older villas so they didn't have all the modern appliances. No sweat off my back because I didn't go there for a modern refrigerator or flat screen tv. The villas were neat, clean and beautiful. Having our own pools was awesome. I had to drag the kids out of the pool every night. The only issue we had during the entire 7 day stay was that one of the televisions broke. One phone call and maintenance came right away and fixed the tv. The pool guy came by every day and cleaned the pool. The maid kept the place immaculate and added nice touches such as fresh flowers and towel animals. The level of service was great. We were celebrating a birthday and the concierge arranged for a cake to be presented at our restaurant for the evening, Rodizio. The staff was great! After dinner, they dimmed the lights, brought out the cake and sang Happy Birthday. It was a memorable evening.

We were in the older villas, perfect location for walking to the beach, store, VIP world. The golf cart was a nice touch. It was great to have when going to other parts of the resort. Also a lot of fun to drive :)
The kids rented bikes by the tennis courts, they had a great time riding around the property. We also rented boogies boards and snorkel gear. The snorkel gear turned out to be goggles only, no tubes available.

On to food - overall, the food was good. Best place to eat is Anja's Lounge. The salmon was excellent, however, the calamari was a family favorite. The kids also liked the burgers and the pasta. Blues was great, Simply gourmet was good, and the fillet at Trapiche was excellent. Indochine was ok, as well as Casablanca and Pearl buffets. We weren't able to try the other restaurants because they were booked. We were only able to get reservations for 4 nights, plus the restaurants are closed on Sundays for the welcome party.

The parties were incredible! The Thursday night party was a blast. The foam was awesome and the costumes were over the top. It reminded me of Carnival. The Sunday night welcome party was simply beautiful. The sunset was the perfect backdrop for a festive night filled with food, amazing entertainment, fire works, and dancing the night away.

Thanks Lynn for the great customer service. You delivered exactly what was promised with no hidden fees. I have already referred you to family and friends.

Thanks again!

An amazing getaway in Puerto Plata!!

  • 5 of 5
Lynn was amazing in setting up our trip to the Dominican Republic! We arrived to DR on Friday, and Check was very smooth, we were Gold V.I.P bracelet holders so we LITERALLY got the RED carpet treatment upon checking in! The individuals checking us in were very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. The resort itself was absolutely incredible, ALL-INCLUSIVE Services from check in to check-out! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND USING LYNN'S SERVICES! When I go back I will definitely be seeking accommodations through LYNN.

Really Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I celebrated our 50th birthday at this resort. We worked with Lynn, who was fabulous in helping us with our planning. She gave us all sorts of information that was really helpful. She knew our questions before we asked them. We had a 4 bedroom villa on the edge of the resort. We were given a golf cart to get around, which was really helpful. There were times we also took the shuttle if it was easier, and they came as soon as we called them. Very convenient. We loved the resort and all it had to offer. We felt very pampered, and loved the beaches, pools, restaurants and bars. The Simply Gourmet restaurant was definitely our favorite. We would recommend this to anyone planning a vacation. My husband and I are already looking to return.

Location

Activity and Interests

The surf at Cofresi Beach varies with the tide. Sometimes it is constant and strong; other times it is soft and sweet. Our kids love body surfing in the waves and making sand castles on the beach. There are many sun beds where, if you tire of having the sun on you, you can just pull the white curtains to create cool shade. The bar crew will bring you a drink and something to eat. Plus, up a few steps is a Sushi Snack Bar where you can order an afternoon sushi plate made to your liking! We like being able to take a dip and rinse out our hair in one of the four fresh-water whirlpools after swimming in the salt water.

VIP World is a peaceful alternative for mothers with young children or if you just want a break from the beach. All around the pool is sand where kids can play and you can closely supervise. The full-service bar staff will bring you drinks and food while you sunbathe or you can lounge on the sun beds under the patio if you wish to stay out of the sun. You can also surf the web here on your iPad or laptop with wireless service 24 hours a day.

VIP World is a world in itself. Let the friendly and attentive staff settle you in, bring you to your king-sized bed and serve you your international beverage of choice with a smile. After a cool swim, stroll through the warm sand back to your sun bed. They will be waiting for you with a menu or another exotic drink, whatever your choice may be.

Every Sunday (or Monday depending on the weather) during your stay you can attend the VIP Welcome Party featuring the famous Lifestyle Show Band which performs meringue and reggae tunes as well as funky dance music. Colorful carnival dancers, spectacular fireworks, and a buffet with barbecue and local as well as imported specialties add to your unforgettable experience.

Every Thursday you can attend the VIP Clubbing Party including Bravissimo, a Las Vegas-style show with 30 dancers and 120 costumes on stage.

Looking for a show, a song and dance number and maybe a laugh or two? With two entertainment complexes on property, experiencing any number of diversions is not a problem. The Colosseum is a large outdoor stage with various stage performances, while Lights, Camera, Action Theatre is a more intimate indoor facility, yet both are dedicated to your amusement.

Notes:

  • All of the 100+ Crown Villas are situated so that you never see another neighbor from inside the villa and at the same time you are minutes away from all parts of the resort. Each villa has its own pool. Your housekeeper makes breakfast and takes such good care of you and your villa so that you feel you are staying with lifelong friends. Bottled water, soft drinks and alcohol (beer, wine, champagne and rum, limit one bottle of wine/spirits per guest per stay) are delivered to your villa's refrigerator at your request. A dedicated VIP Service Staff Member will visit your Villa every morning to ensure that all is well and your needs are being met. An international newspaper and LHVC "Daily News" is delivered to your Villa every day. The "Daily News" shows the weekly weather forecast and describes the day's activities at the resort which could include Spanish lessons, Mini Golf Tournament, Water Aerobics, Pool Olympic Games, Beach Volleyball and many more fun things to do. You will have a golf cart for your use during your stay so you can ride to the beaches, pools and parties (although they are within walking distance if your prefer to walk.) We can guarantee a golf cart because we are Platinum Supreme Lifetime Shareholders (the highest available.
