We spend 8 nights in the midle of January in Cofresi Palm beach and Resort. I found quite good deal from internet for junior suite room so that's was what we chose. We arrived late afternoon, check in was quick and easy. You have to sign papers that you understand that if you lost your bracelet, beach towel cards, rooms...

Arrived at the Cofresi Palms a few days ago with high hopes based on some reviews we had read. The staff is very friendly, and the resort is very nice and well kept. Unfortunately that's where my compliments end. The first thing that you'll get is an invitation for a tour of the resort, which is a timeshare presentation. I...

Spent a week at Cofresi Palm with my family (2 kids), my sister & her family and my mom. Overall it was a nice trip - we upgraded to the ocean view suite and it was well worth it to be close to the beach. The rooms were massive and nicely appointed. We were given an adjoining room with my...

I'll start off by saying that I do A LOT of research before booking a trip and this hotel was ranked 11/45 last October then plummeted to 39/45 sometime around December. After reading pages of reviews, I devised a theory on which ones were "fake" and decided to ignore any write-ups that named all the animation staff (is it just...

I may be biased because this resort is my version of heaven. It has something for absolutely everyone! The restaurants, bars, quantity of pools, kids zone, animation, nightly entertainment, and staff just cannot be beat (in my opinion). If there is something you'd rather be doing, then you just haven't found the exact right pool or bar for you. My...

The hotel itself is probably the most luxurious I've ever stayed at. There's actually two hotels on the premises, and you can play & dine at both, with very few exceptions. However, there's an open sewage line going across the hotel territory, right in the middle of it, with balconies of many buildings facing it. So you can imagine the...

“The hotel was only 1/4 full which is understandable for May...just don't know why we were given a room that looked out to a hillside with no actual view of anything, not even a garden...never once sat on the patio because it was so gloomy and not attractive....but the room was large and clean.”
