“just got back!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

i just returned from cocotal beach resort and had mixed feelings, its definitely a three star resort where sometimes u get great service and sometimes they leave you wondering if you really paid for it or not. Lets start with the general manager, he was great if you had any special requests he was all up for it to make it happen, the ride from the airport to the resort was almost an hour, conexion tour and travels are greatly recommended, the check in process was easy and smooth, we booked a ocena view and got k106, 107 rooms which had the best view, the resort itself is beautiful and huge, the grounds are well maintained, the biggest thing was that you have to know spanish in order to get some service becuase sometimes when the server knew english they pretended that they didnt and acted like they didnt understand a word. The tourist were from all over the world, so they have to know english in order to survive, when it comes to food, it was pretty much same everytime. had a great experience with the photographers, they were very nice and accomodating. the resort have a nice water park so if you are going with kids greatly recommended but should take a half day pass which is for 4 hours, the park is not too big to spend more than four hours, they have five rides and kiddie pools and most of the time its empty so u dont have to wait in line.over all a nice experience and would definitely recommend if you are not that high maintainance.

Spent a week from 26 feb to 5 march at this small but wonderful resort and would recommend it to anybody who wants to relax and not wast to much time getting from one place to another: beach, lounge, buffet and restaurant are all within 5 min walking distance.

Good points: Size or resort, excellent staff and services, beach(walks up to 1hr each direction), pools, la carte restaurants and grounds upkeep.

Bad points: Never ending activity hounding, lack of sufficient tanning chairs, no free internet, no coffee before 09h00 at bar and children( to a certain point).

So So points: Rooms, buffet, 50 min bus to resort from airport and nigntly entertainement shows

Overall, an excellent experience with a great beach and resort staff.

This was our third trip to Punt Cana but the first time at this resort. The resort property is clean and well maintained and our room was always spotless and clean. We had no little bugs or anything in our room however we were on the second floor. Building L is close to the beach and if you leaned over the balcony you could get a small ocean view however we did not spend much time in our room, only to sleep and do the necessary. The staff wre all very happy and accomodating for whatever we asked for. The beds were hard but actually slept quite well after being in the sun and heat for the day. Also we were surprised at how many channels were on the tv in the evening when we retiring for the night. We called home directly from our room with no problem. Cost is $3.00 per minute so they were quick calls. The only complaint we had was the food. There was always a large variety on the buffet but the meat was always tough as shoe leather or not cooked at all. The best night was the Dominican night and the pork was excellant. We did the steakhouse which was fun but the steak was also very tough. Mind you we did not go hungry. Bread is delicious and plentiful. The wait staff were always kind and helpful and usually very happy when we tried out our limited Spanish. The time share employees are constantly after you however after about 3 days they didn't bother us anymore. They weren't rude but pushy. All in all we had a very good relax and arrived home tanned and no worse for wear. It wasn't as great as the other resorts we have been at but this was not totally terrible I will say. Not sure if we will return to this one but who knows what the future holds!

Room Tip: Building L, close to the beach and not a long walk to the lobby. Was very quiet at night..never hear...

My husband and I have just spent a wonderful two week stay here. We were slightly overwhelmed by the size of the complex as it is much larger than other hotels we have stayed at. The staff (approx. 800), caring for at least 2000 holidaymakers did an amazing job. The food was lovely and we weren't too disappointed not to visit all the gourmet restaurants. We can't praise them highly enough for their care, kindness and ability not to laugh too hard at our attempts to speak Spanish (more of which later!).
Despite the size of the complex we never failed to find a lovely quiet corner to sit and relax if we needed it; either by the pools or on the beach. The groundsmen have done an absolutely wonderful job in maintaining the beautiful grounds and gardens.
Special thanks must go to Franklin on the front desk, Ana Jissel and Ana in the Macao restaurant, Jency and Francisco at the pool bar, the SUPERB Animacion Super! Banana, Black Berry, Ping Pong and Tony Montana (the best Spanish teacher in the world!).
Must do's include the Monster Truck trip, the Catamaran to Saona, Bavaro Splash (Snorkel, Snuba and Speedboat) and the Horse Riding.
We made many friends from America and Canada - hi Brittany and Dave, Cupcake, Tony, Greg, Tim and Karen, Antoinette and Patrick plus a few crazy guys over for a wedding...32!
Had a wonderful time, the hotel had been visited before by some of my work colleagues and we are glad we took their advice and came here.
On a less positive note, the only downside to the holiday was being 'pestered' by the concierges to go for VIP breakfast/dinner. It was nice to see the Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze rooms but we didn't travel all that way to spend all our time and money on oour room; if however you are the sort of person who is interested in that kind of thing then go ahead but be prepared for it taking up at least half a day of your holiday.
Hasta luego and (especially for Tony Montana), Mi esposo esta muy borracho!
See you all again

We recently stayed here and had a good time. I will list some feedback I think is most important for this hotel.

Food: The food is here is actually alright for an all inlcusive. We ate at the buffet for breakfast, lunch, and most dinners. Breakfast and lunnch got boring after a few days as the selection is similar each day. We ate at the mexican and japanese theme restaurants and they were much better than the buffet.

Room: Our room was pretty bad. There was a strong odor of mildew. Tiny bugs were everywhere in the room and bathroom. The bed was like sleeping on a piece of plywood. I would say the room was the worst part of our trip. The shower would not work correctly the whole time we were here. We had to use the handheld shower, the rain showerhead would not work.

Liquor: The drinks here were okay for the most part. No top shelf/ name brand drinks unless you paid. Took a lot to get our group to feel a nice buzz.

Staff: The staff here were nice for the most part. We only encountered one staff member who was rude. She was one of the waiters/cleaning staff at the main bar.

Pool: The pool was nice and the water was warm enough. I did find the pool to be to deep. There are many spots were the pool is 6-8 feet deep. I liked taking a long swim throughout the whole pool, but it is large and rest is needed. You can't do that in 6-8 foot water.

Beach: The water was very rough and there was always a rip current present. The winds are very stong at the beach and unless the sun is out, you will be cold.

Location: The drive is about an hour from the airport. The road is kind of rough and made for a poor drive. The nice thing about the location being away from the airport is, you get to see a lot of the countryside and not just the main highway.

All inclusive: I don't feel this place should call itself an all inclusive. They try to nickle and dime you for everything. Lobster, internet, bacardi, drinks at the disco, room service, and more is not included. The resort is not very expensive and I can see why some of these things are not included, but I have simple suggestion for them. Charge $40 per person and add some of these things. It would go along way and would make the resort much better.

For the price this hotel was a good choice. If our room was nicer, I may have even made this review a 4 star.

I have been to the Dominican six times and must say this resort is wonderful! We arrived close to midnight and were rushed to the front desk to check-in. One of our two rooms had a strong sewer smell, so we called the front desk to ask to be moved to another room. We were told that there were no rooms available until the next day and to check with them then. The next morning when I went to the front desk they told me they had two suites on the Tropical side that we could move at 3pm, great!
Location: This may be the only downfall of the resort. The resort isn’t close to the airport, if you like to see parts of the Dominican than this is for you! However, if you aren’t a fan of driving in the tour bus, be prepared for a long drive.
Rooms: This is where the Tropical and Cocotal side differ. The rooms on the left side are the Tropical rooms and they are bigger than the Cocotal rooms. We had a bathroom, living area, and a bedroom. We were very pleased with the room and the layout was great. On the right are the Cocotal rooms, they're a typical resort room - nothing special, but definitely not horrible. On both sides the rooms had a safe (you have to pay to use it, but I highly recommend it), a minibar that was restocked daily, as well as great housekeeping. The maid's worked very hard to make sure the rooms were clean.
Food: We only ate at the buffet and snack bar. The food was good, we found it to be better than a lot of the resorts we've stayed at.
Pools: The pools were nice, although not very clean. We were there during spring break and students were throwing their cups in the water after finishing their drinks etc. With the cleaning standards around the resort of the resort, I except that other times of the year the pool would be clean as well.
Beach: Beautiful beach, as to be expected in Punta Cana! We spent a fair amount of time on the beach, I went for a run along the beach daily, and we always found a place to sit.
Staff: For the most part all the staff was friendly. As others have mentioned, the management should be pleased with their staff, they work long days and always seem to have a smile on their face...this isn't something that you find at every resort. Towards the end of our stay we didn't even have to ask for drinks at the buffet, the waiters knew what we wanted and brought it as soon as they saw us come in.
Internet: There is wifi available for a fee. They say it’s only available in the lobby and by the pool, however I was very lucky and had a room close enough to be able to pick up the connection in my room. It made using the internet much more convenient and I’m really hoping to be able to do so again this year.
We had such a great time at this resort that we have booked to go back at the end of the month, and have our friends going a couple weeks later. I’d highly recommend this sort to anyone looking for a relaxing week in the sun at a place with good food, friendly staff, and nice accommodations. If you have any questions about the resort, feel free to contact me!
See you in a couple weeks Sirenis Cocotal!

My husband and i just spent a week at the resort and had a fantastic time. The drive to the airport was fine and with so many activities on the resort we stayed on it. The staff are what make the Hotel, always friendly and try to be helpful but I feel a little overwhelmed with the volume of people there. We found the food fine, if you want 5 star food,book and pay for a 5 star vacation. Considering the sheer volume of people being fed we think they done an outstanding job. We had no problem getting dinner reservations at the Steak or Italian restaurant but I have to say the best food was the evening Dominican food was show cased on the buffets. That was fantastic.
Going forward I would advise people to just be rude to the VIP Concierge on your first day or they will torment you every time they see you. A vacation is supposed to be relaxing not trying to find a way to your room so you don't meet them trying to sell time shares. Also the vendors who are brought in are very pushy.
Another surprising fact for us was that the majority of guests were European, primarily Russian followed by Germans and Italians and the issue there is it appears everyone smokes anywhere they want. Be prepared if smoking is an issue for you.
As I said at the beginning the good out weighs the bad. The beach is beautiful. Water activities are available, go on the catamaran, just perfect.
The management should be very impressed with their staff at this hotel, a wonderful group of people
