Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Crown Villas was everything promised and more! From the friendly staff at the lobby check-in, to the spacious 3 bedroom villa with private pool, fresh fruit trees on the grounds, chef Esperanza, maid service and the BEST CONCIERGE ON THE PLANET-NATALI, this was an awesome stay. The food and restaurant selections were plentiful, the drinks were endless and NOT watered down, and the people friendly and accommodating. We have decided to return every 3 years as our permanent vacation home base. IT'S A MUST DO vacation spot! Oh and the Sunday show was awesome with something for everyone and non -stop 7 hour party!!!

We arrived and received the upmost respect and welcome ever. When checking in they switched us to a newly refurbished villa which was excellent. Roylan our concierge actually came to the door every single day to check on us and see if we needed anything. LHVC is NOT a timeshare!...I recommend anyone looking for an excellent vacation and opportunity to look into this place further than what people perceive.

We have been 4 bedroom Crown Villa Members for 11 years. Highlights: Beautiful grounds, very friendly staff, good food, fun excursion. Low-lights: Absolutely awful Crown Villa accommodations, no limo, golf cart died...see more below. We were told there is an issue with owners not wanting to upgrade/fix villa issues. There is also a legal issue with Serenity Beach (our favorite beach) so that is closed. We were given M5 Crown Villa which was filthy, noisy from street traffic, and was not in the Crown Villa neighborhood. It had crooked, old kitchen cabinets, a broken sliding door lock, and a broken lampshade in one of the bedrooms (when our week was up and we checked out we were accused of breaking the lamp and had to pay $150 after much arguing). I am limited here by the number of words allowed but I could go on and on. After complaining to customer service with a list of 18 issues and photos, we were moved on the third day to CV5. This villa was in the villa neighborhood within the resort, had a beautiful pool, view of the ocean, and was very clean (thank you Julia for cleaning and taking care of us). But...it had two big issues: the AC in the main room and master didn't work consistently unless maintenance came out every day to fix it and two of the toilets (master, and another bedroom) took anywhere from 3-12 flushes to clear everything from the bowl. We had taken friends with us on this trip and were extremely embarrassed! Read all the reviews and you will see a pattern!

I stayed at a 4-bedroom villa and as an owner, I knew which villas were the nicest to request. The villas are really hit or miss here. The designs are all beautiful but the resort is more interested in building their new villas than renovating the old ones, so you have to request the most recently built/upgraded ones for a truly amazing experience. The villas themselves can be beautiful and the service was great with a pool guy cleaning the pool daily and the maid always cooking a massive breakfast. A note for anyone doing the timeshare exchange: since you are not owners it will not truly be 'all-inclusive' as you will not have access to the majority of restaurants, bars, pools, and even sections of the beach. Golf carts are also only for owners so be prepared to walk a lot as the resort is huge; there is a shuttle that runs every 30 minutes though. The main restaurants I saw that are included are buffets which do have nice selections.

The Crown Villas were amazing!! The food was fantastic, great variety! The pools were never crowded because there were so many to choose from. The country is gorgeous and lush! The welcome party was amazing. Our RCI concierge (Jorday) was so accommodating! We had everything we needed and more! It was definitely a much needed getaway and one to remember. You must definitely visit the waterfalls, Teleferico, Blue Lagoon and Playa Grande.

The resort does not deliver through with it’s promise. The slogan of “tell only your best friends” is funny because I wouldn’t tell my enemy to stay there. We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa that was booked through the timeshare exchange program. Since we were not owners who had purchased or upgraded while there, dining options were limited and we did not qualify for a golf-cart. The food at the restaurants that we “qualified” for was hit or miss. Ironically the Dominican restaurant was the worst. The property is VERY large so getting around without a golf-care is not easy. We had to call for transportation often which meant we had to wait up to 30 minutes for it to arrive sometimes missing our dinner reservation. All that aside, the villa needed substantial upgrades. There were cracks in the wall from the ceiling to the floor in the bedroom. The mattress was rock hard and the pillows were made of cotton balls. The A/C in one of the bedrooms stopped working on the same day that we lost hot water. After repeated calls, someone came to fix the hot water but not the A/C. The cost of wifi was $45 per device (for 1 week) which I personally think is ridiculous especially since we had to pay $845 for the all-inclusive fee for someone who never made it on the trip due to a cancelled flight. As an experienced traveler, I would say this is among my worst traveling experiences and I would not recommend staying here.

We did an exchange with our timeshare through Interval International. We understood this was all inclusive (we paid additional $1600 for all inclusive) but it was not ALL inclusive, it was limited inclusive. We did not buy into their program so they limited us on the restaurants we could eat at, the bars we could go to, the areas we had access to, the beaches we could use, our transportation, and areas we could enter (very limited). Our villa was outstanding and service there was fine. Very friendly staff but very few spoke English which made it hard to communicate.

During our stay in CV7- the pool was severely dirty, the furniture was really really old and we had no wash clothes and the bed was very uncomfortable!! We were moved to CV63- the bed in rm 63-0 and 63-1 was hard as a brick and grossly stained, I used the pillows from the severely old wicker furniture in order to get some sleep. I also woke up everyday with hives and I hope to God that I don't have bed bugs!!! The wicker furniture in the Living room was so creepy old, the lining underneath the pillows was torn leaving the springs to stick out. The stove did not work properly and we had to use matches in order to light it. The breakfast that was prepared by the maid was either over cooked or under cooked, the bacon was ridiculously burnt, potatoes were hard and crunchy. I was told that there were no jetted tubs in the crown villas but while visiting CV 24 there was a huge one there!?!?! During our transfer from CV-7=CV63 we were told that the manger wouldn't approve a nicer villa CV5, that was such a slap in the face!! Why wouldn't you want to accommodate a guest that upgraded twice and possibly more in the future?!?! After my husband and I complained about our first villa we were taken to the sales office where they spoke about upgrading our account!!! They didn't even try to fix our issues and obviously did not care whatsoever!! Once we mention that we were under the impression that someone was going to help us they sent us to customer service. I also find it really strange that the sales rep who presented the information do not speak , they just look at you with a blank stare which is really sad!!!

Believe the negative member reviews. Crown Villa members since 2013. Yet, we were placed in an old house outside the Cofresi property gate, not in the CV area I paid for. Front line staff are generally great. Beaches and cabanas are decent. Food is mostly good. Drinks are tasty but watered down. Management staff are worse than used car salesmen, and the “concierges” are nothing but lying pimps hustling to bring you to the Tower for the upsell. The first one of this trip showed up a day late, lied about booking us dinner reservations and ordering our house liquor, and never showed his face again after I refused to go immediately to the Tower with him. Good thing I double checked dinner reservations in person in customer service or we would have been stuck eating buffets all week. By the way dinner reservations are suddenly cut to 3 per stay when we were sold nightly dinners. Why? “The contract doesn’t guarantee exact number of dinners.” What a load of double talk crap! Then when I went to pick up the house liquor myself from the liquor bodega near the Tower, I was told I had already been there - the scummy “concierge” picked up my order and kept it for himself! After giving her a piercing look, the bodega lady did eventually give me my liquor, which is now down to 3 bottles (2 hard and 1 soft) instead of 6 of whatever I wanted (and no more whiskey). And the villa beers are all Coors light when in past it was Presidente and Heineken. The “concierge” who showed up a couple days later came around the back of the villa and peeked in the sliding doors like a peeping Tom when we didn’t answer the door and helped himself into the house! Ducking creep! I told him to scram like the rat that he was! If this was back home I would have shown him the business end of my home protection unit. The third guy pretended to be there to help with our complaints and promised he was taking me to the Tower to fix things. Not! He disappeared as soon as he dropped me off at the Tower for the upsell speech. They will promise to sell you their first born child to get you to go. And the service philosophy is blame the customer. They bring the wrong entree at dinner? Oh you must have given the wrong order. Booked separate massages for father and daughter but they try to put you in the same room? You didn’t ask for separate rooms. The gaslighting by these people is worthy of a bad mystery novel. They never heard of “the customer is always right”! Every time we’ve returned our services get cut less and less and the hard sell is all they care about. Why would I keep throwing money away to get screwed time and time again? Provide excellent service for what I already paid for first CONSISTENTLY and THEN maybe I will consider paying more for even BETTER service. Instead it’s all backwards. They say “give us more and more money so we can give you less and less”… OK now you can have your bot answer with the standard “ Thank you for your comments which are so important to us” B.S.
