Do not recommend

I would say it is worth spending more money and go elsewhere. The dinning options are extremely limited and same goes with the entertainment.

Poor resort

This is our 3rd visit to Cofresi. Each time it gets worse. Our room was not acceptable when we arrived. The refridgerator did not work, the king sized bed was 2 double beds, the shower only trickled and the water was not hot. We had to wait until the next day to change accomodations to what we had been told we would get. The room are in in serious disrepair and sewer smell was awful near our room. We travel with 2 of my sisters and each of the couples had the same issues. The Palm buffet was terrible! Casablanca buffet was a little better. At each buffet you had to stand in line at the omelet station. I timed it one morning and stood there for 6.5 minutes before being waited on. There was no dessert one day at lunch and I waited 10 minutes for them to bring out a tray of cake after asking 4 different people. The food on the buffet did not vary. It was the same. we had difficulty making reservations at the other resterants. We were told that they were full, but when we went there were always several empty tables. The Italian resterant was excellant and the service was very good. The servers and service staff were very pleasant with very few exceptions. We did have a very unpleassant experience with a lawn service person who jumped over our railing and asked us for a tip. He could not speak Engilsh be he got his point accross by taking money out of his pocket and pointing to us and them to himself. The guest services were not very helpful and the language barrier was truly terrible. If you do not speak Spanish do not try to communicate with the guest services. they nod and have no idea what you are asking for. Very faded elegance. We will not return!!

Very poor customer and services

Checking in the hotel was very bad! It took 5 hours to check in my room because my room mate was not able to make the trip. My room mate was admitted to the hospital and couldn't make the trip. I explained that to the people at the front desk and they said I had to pay an extra $400 because the room was for two people. I explained that I had paid for the total price of the room up front. So I decided to room with another person that room mate didn't come. Thy said we could not room together because we had different reservations. We had to pay $1:00 an hour to have cheep Caribbean re-issue a new certificate with both our names on it before they would give us a room. The from desk attendance at cofesi was not helpful at all

Bang For the Buck

Cofresi Palm is a nice getaway for all: singles,married, families. The beaches and pools are well maintained. The food and drinks throughout the resort and restaurants are phenomenal. There are lots of activities at the resort that one does not need to leave the resort. The villas were great!!!! The regular rooms were like ordinary hotel rooms with a refridgerater though. Service was great.

Hotel Description

Cofresi Palm Beach & Spa Resort in Puerto Plata: Climb a Mountain of Luxury

Built into the side of a mountain with vibrant, indigenous foliage on one side and soft, inviting bronze sands on the other, Cofresi Palm Beach & Spa Resort in Puerto Plata looms large with luxury. With free admission to Ocean World Adventure Park included in some room categories and the on-site Yin Yang Spa offering professional relaxation services from facials to foot massages, the resort puts ordinary vacations on notice--here comes the extraordinary!

Resting on a beach bed under the shade of a tropical paradise on Cofresi Beach definitely qualifies as "the life," but a Jacuzzi built right into the sand is island-style luxury! With 12 on-site pools varying in style and location, guests lose no sleep over where to find waterside relaxation. At Cofresi Palm Beach & Spa Resort, you're always as near or as far away from the action as you desire.

From the Dominican flare of El Pilon to the Indian stylings of Moomtaz and sushi at Zun, right on VIP Beach (with complimentary access for clients), guests can choose from a total of 10 restaurants scattered across the resort complex. With 17 bars, two nightclubs that don't close until the crowd says so and two sprawling theaters offering live nightly performances, the party doesn't stop until you do.

If daytime activity is calling you, find "40-love" on the resort's tennis courts, explore the lush nearby terrain on a trusty steed or expand your horizons with a Spanish or scuba diving lesson. Looking for some special "we" time? Drop those little pirates off at the kids' club, where they can find access to 2 pools, a mini-disco and an assortment of other kid-friendly activities.

This hotel is All-Inclusive.
Features include:

  • All meals and alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks
