Unfortunately I did not like anything about the beach. I wish there would have been a security presence around the beach area of the resort for it's patrons. Unfortunately, we were hounded by people selling stuff. It was not very relaxing. I didn't feel safe!

Overall an ok location and I still would prefer it over the Tropical Restort. I like the fact that it was pretty large and multi levelled. (Unless you have a lot of luggage)

I have been to three beaches outside of the USA. Jamaica, Cancun, and Dominican. The beaches I visited in Jamaica and Cancun were ten times clearer than Cofresi. The tides ran all the way to the wall, so there was no dry sand. You could...More

Not the best in the Caribbean. Not very wide and some parts are rocky. But Very quiet and you do not get pestered by vendors or locals.

I think that some cruise lines might have day trips to the resort. Not certain tho. Taxis aren't cheap, but we always felt safe. You defiantly don't want to drive on the island. It's insane!
