My son and I traveled there from 8/1/15 - 8/8/15, this was his high school graduation gift. Needless to say the resort has several different sides, unfortunately we were on the side that was furthest from everything. Our room was extremely old, I should have realized that when they gave us a physical key instead of a key card, all...

The Resort was stunning with beautiful scenery. The first room we were in at The Tropical for a standard double room was great so we were thrilled when we were upgraded to Cofresi Palm into a Junior Suite, what an amazing room with a fantastic shower, jacuzzi bath and four poster bed with a balcony overlooking one of the swimming...

My husband and I loved it! The weather was perfect the whole time. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The food was good, but I think the Pina Colada upset my stomach.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Cofresi Palm and a few things just did not sit right with me! Not everyone spoke english, so if your visiting its best that you carry a Spanish/English dictionary.
