Don't listen to any of the negative comments! I stayed here early February with my boyfriend and some friends. We requested a king sized bed prior to arriving and we got one. The other rooms were just two double beds, but all the rooms were clean. This resort is HUGE! We probably only saw about 1/4 or 1/2 of it... More

What really made my stay memorable was the staff and animators. Special thanks to Julio nice and Scooby! All of the animator's energy and enthusiasm will forever stay in my memory... More

To most travelers planning to vacation at Cofresi Resort I can only say one thing. Ignore the negative comments and you will enjoy your stay there. We vacationed there in February and had a fabulous time. We had a basic non VIP package and had no complaints. Our flight was by Air Transat and transfers to the hotel was effortless.... More

We stayed at this place a year ago and only now I am getting around writing the review of what had absolutely traumatized us. We travel a lot (both for business and pleasure) and have stayed in many five stars hotels as well as travelers' hostels and never had such a bad experience. The place look nothing like it does...

My wife and I took a late honeymoon to this resort. We purchased our trip on Groupon and it was a pretty good deal. The trip was all inclusive, included VIP access, and a few activities at no extra charge. We arrived on Saturday Feb 20th for our late honeymoon trip. The resort was beautiful and everything started out good.... More
