“Great place to stay, eat and enjoy”
Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

I am returning to the real life after a great stay at Villa Cofresi. I went with my 2 kids and they were impressed like me. A lot of fun at the beach and crystal clear pool with very friendly lifesaver. Excellent night life with bartenders show and life music. Recommended.

We appreciate that you took your time to write a review about Villa Cofresi. You are welcome to come back to paradise anytime. We are happy that you were impressed, but we are happier that your kids were impressed. Kids are very hard to please these days. I will tell Georgie, the lifesaver your comments about him, as well as the bartenders and the rest of the staff. Thank you for recommending us. Word of mouth is the best promotion.

Stayed for 5 nights in Villa Cofresi last week. It's located directly by the sea which was just perfect. Going and coming from the beach made easy. Staff was helpful and nice, room was clean and spacious (though i had the room of 4 people all by myself since i travelled solo). Liked their breakfast muffins especially. :) There's a nice beach bar located in a hotel lobby where you can buy lunch and drinks and meet other people. They have a dinner possibilty as well which i used a couple of times, quality was good. Nights were mostly quiet.

This is our 4th visit to the Villa Cofresi and it just keeps getting better. The beach, food, and rooms are top notch, but what sets Villa Cofresi apart is the staff. The desk folks,bartenders,groudscrew, housekeeping are always smiling and willing to be genuinely helpful. Good job, the hotels back on the mainland could learn a thing or two on hospitality from the Cofresi. Thanks for a great visit, we will be back.

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights from Jan.18,2014 to Jan 23, 2014. All in all it was a pleasant stay. We arrived late after the long drive from San Juan airport. The drive was awful, it took over 3 hours. Our plane arrived in San Juan an hour and a half late so we only had an hour or so of daylight. The road trip was exasperated by traveling in the dark. What few road signs there are, they were in Spanish, so we had a more difficult time way finding. All I can say is if you are driving from San Juan to Rincon, do it during the day and be sure to have a GPS on you phone, or rent one from the car rental. And if you do drive a rental be sure to purchase the e-express chip for your car. The first hour of driving is on Hwy 22 which is a toll road, the chip allows you to go through on the left side of the toll without stopping. You barely need to slow down. It worked great for us. The last two hours of the drive is on hwy. 2. It has stoplights every 2 to 3 miles, sometimes even closer. It was madding. Take highway 2 to 402 into Rincon. If you miss 402, you can always take 115.
We made it to Villa Cofresi shaken and stirred but all in one piece. When I made reservations I requested a quiet room. A week before we left on our trip, I called the hotel and specifically requested a quiet room. Once we arrived at the hotel, at check-in, I requested a quiet room. So what did they give us?... A room literally right over the bar and party room. The loud music played until midnight every night. We asked for a different room and was told that hey were booked up, so we suffered through it.This was frustrating considering the effort that we went through.

The room size was adequate and had it's own balcony looking over the bar out to sea, so that was nice. The room was clean and comfortable. We only had one key for the room door which was cheesy and the door itself seemed a little insecure. The bathroom was fine. The bathtub/shower had a hard time draining, so we left the plug out and that seemed to remedy the problem. The AC worked brilliantly and there was plenty of closet space. The refrigerator worked fine for our beer and snacks.

The housekeeping staff was great. They did a good job detailing our room unobtrusively and conveniently. The front desk staff were a little edgy, some were helpful and others seemed put out if you asked them anything. Very odd customer service at the front desk. The bartenders service was slow, the drinks were marginal and expensive. The rum punch was the best value and not too bad with a Medella beer. We tried he large coconut drink that they called the Pirate, we didn't care for it.

The hotel is right on the beach, which is awesome. The sunsets are fantastic every night. The bar is noisy, but after a few rum punches who cares!! There was a large young mid twenties and younger crowd hanging out there which was fun to watch. The hotel is cheap but it does have value. I recommend this hotel to anyone on a budget and to young singles, looking for a great time.

Other than the loud room we had a pretty good experience at Villa Cofresi.

We really appreciate that you took your time to write a review about your experience with us at Villa Cofresi. We apologize, but we don't have a record of your request for a quiet room. We do have a request for a king size, non smoking. At the moment of your check in, we did not have a deluxe with a king size bed available located in the quiet side of the hotel. We work really hard to please all requests and we feel bad that we were not able to find a quiet room at your check in time. We are pleased you were satisfied with the room and housekeeping staff. We are so sorry you did not have a great experience with our front desk clerks and our bartenders, which is usually the case with most of our clients. We have been around for 49 years and we do appreciate you understood our value. We are a family oriented, happy place where people do have a great time like you mention in your review. We hope you come back to Rincon and Villa Cofresi. We will make sure you do get a quiet room.

I haven't even gotten there and I am impressed! I called to make a reservation my family is traveling from MI and will be in the Caguas area. Since we've never been to Rincon, we want to drive there and take a few of our nieces from Juncos with us. I was concerned about having enough space for a couple, 15 year old and potentially 2 young women. After I reserved what was available, I received a call back regarding a more accommodating space for our stay! I was so happy. So, I just know the stay is going to be wonderful and perhaps my next visit, it will be for longer!
Thank you,
Mary Ann Santana

We stayed at the Villa Cofresi after it was recommended by someone at a coffee shop. We were pleasantly surprised. The amenities were awesome from pool tables, to ping pong and a great pool. Loved the bar area. It didn't feel like a big resort which is what we wanted but it felt secure and safe. Most of the guests were Puerto Rican which says something. The drinks were great and the staff was honest and reliable. We even accidentally left some money in our pockets when they did laundry for us and it came back with the bag. I've never written a review but that really impressed me.

Room Tip: Some of the studios are like apartments with complete kitchens.

We enjoyed our stay here. Our room had a balcony looking out over the ocean, and the sunset! The sunset was why we came to the Rincon area, and it was better than expected! The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, and the restaurant food was very good.

Our sunsets are the best in the universe without a doubt. My personal favorites are the ones during the months of January and February. Thank you for taking time to write this review. We are always training our staff in customer service and the great service comes from the heart. Our Restaurant La Ana de Cofresí specializing in fresh seafood, the best Angus beef in the area and Puerto Rican cuisine makes our visitors very happy. It's traditional food, but with the best ingredients including the love the chefs put into their work and dishes. We hope to have you again with us in the very near future so we can enjoy more sunsets, friendly staff and delicious food. Life is too short!!!
