First let me say that my first visit to Lifestyles was back in February and, not knowing any better, booked thru Cheap Caribbean which had a great deal and for the money we paid $29 AI per day it was well worth it. Doing further research and reading trip advisor, I found that you can rent thru shareholders etc. and decided to rent thru Bob Mehl and Leslie Mitchell. The resort is what it is.. It's beautiful, fair to good customer service, it is big with many bars and restaurants so you can always find something to eat yadda yadda.
Now on to my experience renting thru Bob and Leslie. One word OMG (actually that's 3 but....) - You get exactly what is promised no BS and no empty promises. They were always honest. Any requests I made they would tell me they look into it and get back to me whether it was yes it can be done or unfortunately not available @ this time. And that is so appreciated. Always responded to my many questions and emails promptly. Bob/Leslie our villa was great! Close to everything. We got our VIP gold band as promised and had the same privileges as "owners". As a matter of fact, we were treated as owners the entire time. Our cleaning lady Rud was fabulous, making a nice breakfast each day & maintaining our villa. Our rep (forgot her name, sorry) - was very attentive and went out of her way to accomodate our requests. Our pool and grounds were cleaned daily. We had no problems with any of our dinner reservations. We had a gentlman come & replenish our fridge each day (in our case, full of beer & water - but whatever you wanted they would bring). The only request i have for a change is for the in villa breakfast. Each day the same thing is prepared. It would be nice to change that up every other day. The best surprise was the helicopter ride back to the airport as I had requested this to/from but it wasn't available but later became available.
Thank you to the animation staff for your great entertainment and attention..... Caramelo, Lenny Kravitz, Barbie, etc.... you're the ABSOLUTE BEST!!! Luv ya all!!!
In a nutshell... I will return and VIP is the only way to go!!! I will only rent thru Bob & Leslie ...they are friendly, reliable and most important honest. If it can be done, they will get it done for you. Bob/Leslie thank you for assisting in making this a great vacation. FYI ... one of my guest has decided to get married on the property.
