Why Property Manager chose Cofresi
The location is great for a nice relaxing holiday. Our lives are pretty hectic and it's nice to get away to relax in the sun.
What makes this Condo unique
It's so close to the beach. It's also just a 5 minute walk to Ocean World Marina and the large Casino. Puerto Plata is just a short drive away. Just click on Paradise Condos below to see the location. We are just 100 yards from the ocean!

3 1/2 Stars for a pleasant week
We enjoyed our week at this Cofresi Condo, with some drawbacks. The unit is clean, although starting to show some age (even though only 8 years old). Some problems with appliances and hot water, which is hostage to the local infrastructure. You have to be accepting of some external noise, since a local roadway has occasional vehicle traffic (rarely after dark). If you want to laze by a beach, look elsewhere. The beach is not particularly clean, and the "park" is rundown and garbage strewn.
On the positive side, Roger and the local management are very quick with responses to concerns, and made every effort to ensure our stay was as enjoyable as possible. The balcony overlooking the pool is a great oasis, perfect for that sundown drink. There tends to be a group of longer term renters in other units, which makes for an enjoyable community around the pool. Great restaurants are available by walk, or short taxi ride (Tres Cocos and Le Papillon were the highlights for us).
Would we recommend? Yes, but with eyes open. This is a developing country, and you have to be comfortable with all the good (and not so good) if you want to get the most out of your stay.
Cozy, Romantic & Affordable.
We actually stayed in this condo for the first time on January 8 - 28 - 2013, and when we decided to explore the Dominican Republic further, we traveled throughout the island and continued returning to this fantastic "Home-Base". We spent a total of 4 months on the island and returning to this "Home-Base" was always the highlight of our being in the Dominican Republic! Descriptions of this retreat was more than accurate & the best location in the entire complex. Beds and all furnishings were comfy & cozy. The unit is extremely clean and the entire property is well maintained. The owner was very helpful and Victoria the housekeeper is sweet and a great cook!! The property manager was also very helpful and friendly, as were the security crew. We always felt safe and never understood why the security crew was needed, but we reasoned it out that since most of the condo owners lived abroad, it was a good idea that there was a small security crew there. ( They helped us with anything we needed, jump starting our car, bringing in the water cooler bottles and even helping us move our suitcases from one unit to another when we wanted to try another unit while this one was booked out. So no problems or worries on your visit to Playa Cofresi I assure you!! The beach was interesting and we met people from all over the World in Playa Cofresi. Everyone was helpful as far as the neighborhood. We felt like we lived a small lifetime in the 4 months we were there, and now we feel "HomeSick" and can not wait to return!!! Thanks to the community of Playa Cofresi, Lorraine, Victoria, Maria, Dennis, Peter, Chris & Maddy, John Dobbs, Jo Ann, Carlito, Ms. Hunt, and all that made our adventure to the Dominican Republic fabulous!! ( Too many wonderful people, memories and restaurants to mention!!) We shall return and hopefully this unit will be available!!!!!! James & Laurie ( Nova Scotia / Florida )
We had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful condo in playa cofresi, DR. the Condo is immaculate and spotless! Everything you would have at home, the condo supplied! we relaxed on the terrace and a few short steps we were lounging by the pool. The beach is a stone throws away...we would wake to a delicious breakfast every morning. My wife was in the mood for chicken and rice ( Arroz con Pollo) and on our second day, our wish was granted! the meal was amazing!! we look forward to going back very soon. thank you to Lorriane for all her help in planning this trip.

Cannot say enough good things...
stayed for 10 days in April 2009 and as soon as we returned home we started planning our next trip; going back in September 2009 again and would not stay anywhere else. The owners are very helpful, attentive and prompt people. The condo is absolutely gorgeous and well kept. There is not one complaint we have and highly recommend staying here. Everything was perfect from the towels to the mattresses to the water in the pool. Our maid was wonderful and we got along very well, as was the condo complex manager Luis.
We have traveled a lot and have to say that so far this was the #1 vacation and we are looking very much forward to our September trip.
