Cofresi Palm was a great place to stay. TONS of stairs!!! On average likely somewhere around 800 up and down steps on staircases.( you'll not need a gym for the week). If you have problems with stairs DON'T book here! I felt bad for the seniors that were here, they were struggling... We loved the overall resort. Lots of pools,... More

To be fair, it is not a bad property, but the service staff is really unhelpful. long story short, I purchase the internet (Masa Internet) 25 dollars for 25 hours. but it is not working, and I have to go back 3 times trying to fix it. The internet service guy let me wait for more than 1hr in the... More

We had a fantastic time at Lifestyles in Puerto Plata, but this review is specifically about Lilo, the Tennis Pro at the facility. On three of the days of our trip, we (my wife and I) began our morning with a tennis lesson with Lilo -- and the tennis experience was one of the best parts of our trip! Lilo... More

We ate next door at The Tropical alot. Your allpass bracelet permits you full access to the adjoining resort. Pool aerobics instructor was a blast and very energetic! Unfortunately... More

First the negative. We went out on a waterfall excursion (highly recommended) and 2 people from our large group of 25 lost their wrist bands, when we returned to the hotel to get another one, we were told they would cost us 200.00USD each to replace. This was unacceptable when we raised it with the hotel management, after a hour... More

I went to Cofresi on girls trip in March 2015. The resorts is beautiful, really all inclusive and the staff was amazing. Shaggy and Julio Nice kept us dancing and laughing all week long. My only suggestions would be to have more variety night to night at the buffet or more reservations. Wifi is spotty and unreliable.

Only disadvantage was a very standard room ( I would rate it a 1). Junior Suite was unavailable (booked solid) so we were upgraded to a larger and more comfortable room. Thanks to the desk manager Jose! Had a Great time! Dominican people (staff) are awesome and we were treated well (tips helped but their kindness was upfront). The resturants... More

We just got back from Cofresi Palm Beach and the Resort is nice and we had a great time. The food and drinks were fantastic. The beach was smaller but nice. Not good for snorkeling because it was all sand. Watch out for all of the stairs. I was surprised that no one mentioned all of the stairs. There are... More
