Cofresi looks great in pictures but is sub-par in reality. My boyfriend and I booked our one week vacation through livingsocial. When our flight was delayed we tried to call the resort only to be transferred at least three times per call, and eventually hung up on because it seems none of the resort representatives can speak English, despite advertising...

This hotel has a VIP system that gives you access to different areas of the hotel. It is at first unclear which area is for who. But when you ask the answer is very vague. The service at this resort is bad, and the personal is sometimes downright aggressive. The cleanliness of the place is questionable.

Stayed here with my wife and it was our first experience with an all inclusive resort- we found a great deal online and it made sense at the time, but the airfare (purchased later) was crazy from Tampa. Upon arrival, we were greeted by bell hop who gladly took our bags while we checked in, which was a fairly easy... More

The resort caters to the VIP which are timeshare owners. The VIP have their own beach and restaurants which are off limits to non timeshare holders. The rooms need to be updated, the towels were gray not white,the air conditioner didn't work so we had to moved to another room. When we moved to a new room the bathroom had... More

Arrived home today from Cofresi Palm, could have saved $4,000.00 and just gone to local pool for the week, would have felt the same. Food well below standards that we've grown accustomed to in DR. Room was okay, but we did upgrade to the VIP section and from what we saw only thing that got was a bit better room.... More

We just came back a few days ago from Puerto Plata. We stayed at Cofresi Palm Beach Resort. Overall was an OK vacation. If u can get past the bad customer service (one girl seemed not to care), the long walks, the mosquitoes and the outdated room, then, you can enjoy: -the "Welcome Party" with the most variety of foods...

Just came back and had an overall great time. The beach was a disappointment with all of the seaweed and no snorkelling and the buffets were gross but the A Le Carte's were great. Overall the best part of the trip was the entertainment and animation crew of Shaggy, Chocolate, and Spaghetti making everyday a lot of fun. And making... More

We just got back from spending a week at Cofresi Palm Beach and Spa. The activities staff was definitely the best part of the our vacation. Shaggy, Chocolate and Spaghetti were great. We developed a great friendship with these guys. Also want to notice Caramel who was also fantastic as well. I also wanted to single out Luis out cabana... More

This hotel is a decent value, however, there are several things they need to do better. While I did not experience this pain one day after I was there I the check in counter was hidden by a sea of people(imagine trying to check in after a 2hr + flight. I had breakfast at the Pearl and after a few... More

My family of 4 (two daughters ages 16 and 19) stayed at Cofresi In May. I booked once again through Cheap Caribbean and very happy with both resort and CC. We paid for (2) standard rooms but were upgraded to oceanfront suites room 4013 4016. Loved the rooms and perfect location. Close to pool and beach, further away from lobby.... More
