Absolutely stunning resort. A bit pushy on buying in though but it's such a good deal that they actually won us over. We signed up and will be going back as often as possible. This is not a time share scam. You can go as often as you like, for as long as you like and they also have another...

Stayed Jan 5-13 Our rooms were nice. Lovely huge balconies and location was great (building 31). We asked for our teenaged children to be next or near to us and they accomodated without issue. This resort has a TON of stairs and hills so if you have any nobility issues you may not want to stay here. It is a...

It was a nice all inclusive resort. It was difficult to get snacks or food during certain hours and you we limited on being able to have access to alcohol in room (unless you purchased your own). The beach and pools were great and they had many different pool styles for different ages.

Where to begin? First of all we were a group of 61 for a wedding. I traveled with my dad. They gave us a room with one bed and offered to bring a "cot". I'm sorry but we didn't pay $2000 each for a damn cot. Then over 12 of us were put into the 202 buildings. What was wrong...

Our room was pretty nice except it smelled like sewage. The drinks were the worst I've ever had: way too sweet , and not really frozen. After being there for a couple of days, it was very apparent that unless you had a time share there and a VIP bracelet on, you could only use about one third of the...

We loved staying at the Cofresi. The location is fabulous - close to the pools and the beach. The staff goes above and beyond with service and friendliness. A trip to Ocean World is a must. Our 5 year old grand daughter had the opportunity to be in the dolphin show. What a treat. Can't wait to go back for...

I was seriously disappointed in this hotel. There is ONE type of beer in the whole resort...Presidente light. When I asked to see the wine list at the "gourmet" French restaurant, the waiter told me "we have both kinds....red and white." But, don't forget...you are in an "exclusive, VIP" resort...gold bracelets and all....... Yeah...don't think so. As to the accomodations,...
