I bought my ownership in this resort in February 2008. I have traveled Mexico, Jamaica, and Aruba and stayed at four and five star resorts there. The Domincan Republic is the most beautiful place on earth. Cofresi beach is a brown sand beach but the view of the mountains and calm waters are very nice. I have been to Punta Cana and can say the beaches there are white sand and clear blue water with many palm trees on the beach. Another nice area to visit.
This resort sets itself apart from others because of the villa experience. When staying in other resorts you usually are in a multi level building with tons of people around. The villas are very private. The beautiful landscaping,and pool are exceptional. The breakfast made daily in your villa is so relaxing and enjoyable, eating by our own private pool. Where else can you stay in a house in a resort!
The vip Beach is another area that is excptional. The beds on the beach are so relaxing, the cold whirlpools are a great place to cool off and have a beverage, while overlooking the ocean. The beach is very private since it is an inlet so you don't see a bunch of high rises up and down the beach like you do in Mexico and Aruba.
The vip pool is nice as well with the beds and sand around the pool. It is very relaxing there as well. They keep the linens on the beach beds very clean . I am a neat freak!
The restaurants are good, not exceptional but they continue make improvements every time we visit. We are returning to the resort Feb 4th this year and I have been in contact with my rep. She said upon arrival at the resort we can book our restaurants for the week now. This should eliminate the calling daily to get restaurant reservations. They also have a new restaurant open called Azul, another gourmet restaurant in the new vip services building.
They also have purchased the presidential suits from Sun Village next door. They are a little more pricey but they are larger and more contemporary. There is supposed to be another restaurant in that section as well. Also, they are breaking ground on the peninsula to add more suites and villas which will be ocean front.
All in all, I am happy to be an owner in such a unique, progressive resort. It only keeps getting better. If anyone would like to contact me for more information I would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
