Vefore the show we were entertained by some very energetic entertainers and one of them was nicknamed Blacky... what a great guy we got to know him very well and spent...

Pros:The resort has a lot of swimming pools, quite a few allow kids to go in if the parent is also in the pool, which was nice. The facility is pretty well matintained. Friendly staff. Food is OK but not superb. Cons: Room is clean, but amenities are old (200 series buildings). It took long time for hot water to...

Honestly this is an amazing resort. It was clean and beautiful. Each night there were different shows that my family enjoyed and we were close to the tours that were off the resort. The only complaint my family and I had was the buffet food. It was not good at all particularly the breakfast and not too many dessert options.

There is a lack of English speaking employees. Booking restaurant reservations should be a lot easier, than what they were. You should be allowed to swim up to 10pm, as there was nothing to do at night time. There should be a good entertainment shows offered more than 2 times a week. There were very few English tv channels which...

Went to this resort the week of April 17th. This is my third trip to the Dominican but my first to Puerto Plata. This was the worst trip, not by a little, but by far. We arrived and check-in was fairly quick. They told us upfront there was a 200$ charge if we lost our color coded "VIP" bracelets which...

My girlfriend and I just spent 5 days as VIP members at Cofresi. I was highly disappointed by virtually all aspects of the trip. The most obnoxious thing about Cofresi is the BS sales pitch they make upon arrival. We were there for less than 24 hours and got suckered into their nonsense through lies. They called our room 4...
