3 Reasons to Stay at Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club in Puerto Plata

by Joanna E

I’m on a mission to travel as much as I can so I spent my first international trip of the year in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic at the Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club. It was the first time using a Groupon for hotel travel and my first experience at an all-inclusive resort.

The Suites at Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club

Based on the package purchased, I stayed at the Residence Suites. The suite included a King sized bed with full living and dining room areas, bathroom with stand up shower, full kitchen with a stove, utensils and mini fridge providing water, beer, and soft drinks as well as an outdoor area for eating, relaxing or smoking overlooking the pool. I loved the fresh flowers included in the bathroom over the towels in the bathroom; lovely touch. Below are the different sites available at LHVC and video of my room tour.

The Food at Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club

We didn’t have any room service, but LHVC has many restaurants. Breakfast is usually a la carte and depending on the restaurant you go to, lunch and dinner are their respective food genre. Below are the restaurants we dined from Days 1-4. I am a meat lover so dining at the Brazilian Restaurant was a plus.

  • Bellini (Italian)
  • Rodizio (Brazilian Steakhouse)
  • Casablanca (International Buffet)
  • Indochine (Asian)
  • The Pearl (International Buffet)
  • The Blue Lagoon (Seafood)

The Activites and Services

The Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club offers a free shuttle service around the resort. It is available and runs every 25 minutes from 7AM-11PM. We were barely at the resort because we took advantage of the Outback Safari and City Tour excursions, but amenities include access to over 19 restaurants, 39 bars, adult and kid pool areas, beaches, a nightclub, spa services (for a fee), as well as water and land sports. LHVC also provides activities for kids 4-12 every day, a teen club as well as babysitting services. You would need to put in a reservation to use the babysitting service.

There’s pretty much something to do every night. VIP parties are held on Sundays and Thursday nights and include food, drinks, live entertainment and more.

Check my video showing clips from the Thursday Night Party.

For my first resort, the Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club satisfied my expectations and I can’t wait to go to another.
