Our second visit to Dominican but first to Puerto Plata. We enjoyed the scenery on fairly short ride to Cofresi. Our check in was fairly quick & we were shuttled quickly with our luggage. We were given set reservations & times for 3 of the a la cart restraunts which was nice because you tend to not do that right away, then cant get one.
Our rooms were fairly spacious with a great balcony. We did have air conditioner problems but they were quick to come fix it. Upon a few attempts we requested to move our room for more comfort. We were quickly upgraded for the inconvenience of it all. Even more so our fellow travelers were also moved & upgraded as we requested rooms together. One being our daughter & her friend. These rooms were huge, marbled layout. Beautiful.
The grounds are well kept & clean. There were always staff around close to ask questions or direct us as the resort is pretty massive. There were always many staff on carts or vans to shuttle you anywhere you wanted to go which was nice. The pools were clean and well maintained with lots to choose from. There are plenty of bars around for your all your hydration needs. Beach was clean & enjoyable with wonderful beds and hammocks all around for your comfort. The staff were fantastic everywhere whether it be in the restaurants or housekeeping and entertainment staff were so friendly and totally encouraged us all to get up and participate in all the activities around us. We were especially entertained by "Blackie" He made us smile everyday and entertained us all. He was very helpful in letting us know all about the events going on around the resort. He truly loves his job and it shows. Shout out to Rambo and Speedy as well. All go geters!! All around our holiday was fantastic, the excursion choices are great and affordable. Definitely do the cable care/city tour & we also enjoyed the half day horse back riding trip as well.
The food we ate was always great & the restaurants we visited were very clean and usually well stocked. The Sunday Welcome party is a show and buffet you don't want to miss !!!
I would go back in a Dominican minute!!
