I was at this resort last year in November. I enjoyed the trip so much, that I decided to go back to the same hotel again. I did not regrated a bit. It was great to see the same entertaining group (Salami, John Cina, Lanny Kravitz, Pushy-Pushy, Moskito) again. They were just as much fun as they were last year....

Had another blast in Puerto Plata at The Lifestyle Tropical Resort for the second year running and planning on more! Everything was clean, room was great, food was good and the staff was, as always, very upbeat and they really make the trip fun. I do have a few recommendations. Papi, you need golf lessons! Salami, you need a haircut!...
