We just got back from our seven day stay at Cofresi. We had so much fun and we were very thankful to have meet some really wonderful guys on our stay. The animation staff, especially Blackie and Blondie were amazing! They treated us like family and we already miss them! Cant wait to come back and visit those guys!!!

Special thanks to Francisco "Mini Me", who gave us Spanish language classes every morning! I started from nothing and in the end...

I had a great time during my trip. The pools were fantastic and the service was great. The hotel and beaches were beautiful.

I purchased a stay for Confressi from Groupon which is supposed to include "VIP experience: access to special VIP beach, pool, and sports bar" but the trick is there are levels to the VIP status.

The customer service department need to know the conditions of the rooms to make sure when member get there they do not have to spend any time being stressed because the room are not up to par and that all the appliance or working. No one wants to go on vacation and stress out it should be relating.

Very pushy with sales and if you refuse to buy "timeshare" your service seems to dwindle and they lied to all of us about cab fair to and from the airport, when we left instead of putting us all in one cab to save money we all got separate cabs (money scam) not to mention they have vans big enough...
