Does "酷似" in "她酷似你" (she looks exactly like you) have the negative connotation of 酷 or the positive connotation of "cool" ?

Juyi is right. '酷'means 'very much' here, it does not mean cool or cruel. Although 酷sometimes composes words that has negative connotation of cold blooded, like 严酷、残酷、冷酷，the word 酷似 doesn't have a negative connotation. In the similar word 酷爱, 酷 also means 'very much' and doesn't contain any negative connotation.
