The only down side to the stay was at a certain time everyday the resort/pool became flooded with locals. While this is not a huge problem it was not what I expected when coming to the resort for vacation. During... More

I recently visited Lifestyle with a group of 44 friends. We actually stayed in the residential suites, however I just booked my next trip and I am staying at the Cofresi. Most of the entertainment and fun is centered around the Cofresi and the Tropical. The animation team is what makes the days fun. These guys work so hard to... More

However, I did see a lot of negative reviews so I was hesitant to book since the reviews didn't match up with what I was seeing.My friends had recommended this resort to me though so I decided to book anyway,...

I was disappointed with the service at Cofressi. My husband and I are members and still received an OK service. Some of the waiters at the VIP beach in cofressi and in Serenity Beach were rude and once they saw we opened our wallets to tip them they changed and all of a sudden were happy to serve us. House...

Travel between areas is difficult. Because of this customer service issues should be resolved onot location. I findon't that reps are quick to send you to the "tower" in order not to help you resolve the issue over the phone

To start I have been to Cuba at least 14 to 16 times and Dominican Republic 7 to 8 times, staying in 2 to 5 star resorts. I have never been made to feel like a second class person before.
