First, of all when booking online they show you only the picture's of the rooms of the time shareholders, not the rooms that they will give you. Second,when you get there they offer you another room in a totally different resort on the same property which we had a hassle for a day and a half and then finally give us our room. After that they give you there own reservation to certain restaurants on the resort, if you are not a time share holder then you can't and won't get reservations to any restaurants. You will only be eating buffet for your entire week. If you ask for reservations you will be turn down. If you see anything that say resorts own by LIFESTYLES RESORTS do not book they own multi resorts on the same property.Also somedays we didn't have hot water. Also becareful with food and water. We both got very sick during our trip. Please look at reviews don't look at the cheap price look for convenience.

Cofresi Beach is located on the north coast of the Dominican Republic, very close to the historic town of Puerto Plata. With warm waves and fine smooth golden sand, Cofresi Beach is a good location for sun worshipers. There are vendors with little shops where you can buy some souvenirs, etc... This is beach is facing the Atlantic Ocean and because of this is not as calm as the beaches in Punta Cana, specially in the winter months. Also, because of the waves action, the water is not as clear as some other areas in DR. Due to my surfing background, I personally prefer beaches where there are waves, but hey, that's me. For the regular Joe, who just wants to float around and do a little bit of swimming, is not that great. Still, it is way, way better than the Jersey shore, that's for sure!

Very nice beach with almost no others around. Lots of activities for water sports. It is a wonderful walk in the early morning or late afternoon.

Beach was narrow but the wave coming in was beautiful. There are vendors with little shops on the beach which some where a little pushing.
