My wife and I used a Living Social discount to stay the at the Resort for 6 nights/7days. We were blue band guests and not gold band VIPs. We were not treated poorly, just limited to some of the areas that the VIPs could go to. For what we paid for it - it was a great time. Had we... More

This is my first review on tripadvisor, I feel compelled enough to sign up for an account here to write a review for Cofresi Palm Beach & Spa Resort. My reservation was for a superior room, and let me just start by saying that there's nothing "superior" about the room I am in. First, the room is dirty, stained walls,... More
