    Question all inclusive day pass

    Hoping someone can shed a little clarity on this for me. After researching past post I wasn't able to get a clear answer. We are staying in a private residance for a few weeks, and wondering if it is possible to buy an all incluve day pass to one of the AI's. I see they offer some to cruise passengers but what about non cruisers .

    which all inclusive?
    divi/tamarijn?

    i know there is an all inclusive pkg at the DEPALM ISLAND that lots of cruisers participate.
    is that what you are referring to OR is it something like a day pass for food/beverage/beach/pool at a place like DIVI, TAM, RIU etc???

    You are not required to be a cruise passenger.
    You need to be willing be pay the entrance fee

    In most, if not all cases, it is less expensive to go to one of the beach and rent chaise lounges and umbrellas.

    From a previous post

    It is not listed above, but I have heard conflicting reports as to whether or not the Renaissance is still offering passes. Personally, just to be on the safe side, I would verify these offers-- even more so during high season- December 18 - Easter week-- before scheduling your day around these offers.

    I know that Amsterdam Manor is now $10/day per person (no half days) which includes a towel and use of a lounge chair. However, they only allow a certain amount of passes per day so that their guests at the hotel will not encounter a busy beach during their stay. It's best to call ahead.

    Absolutely!

    There are a ton of cruise passengers who want to take advantage of these very generous prices at the Amsterdam Manor and others as well.

    Thank you for the feedback, I am looking for something like the RIU where my wife and I can go for the day; eat, drink and have fun with no worries or chores and spoil ourselves for the day.

    Cosmo, I have done the passes for my wife and family visiting at the Occidental and the Rui. In my opinion the Rui is the best. You pay a little extra but you have a full day and night. The day pass for adult is 100.00 and 1/2 price for children. You can go to the resort for 9am and I believe the pass is good until 10pm or midnight. Included is towels, breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets, beach, pool, sports bar with snacks and all the bars on the resort. They also offer passes for just kunch or dinner not sure of the price.

    Thanks, I have stayed at the RUI and loved it. 100 for a day is a fair price all thing considered, it would be a splurdge worth taking
    Thanks

    yes it would be a splurge but ya know.........
    their pool and beach is amazing.
    if you bought frozen pina coladas let's say 5 of them each at $7 =$35 and tip brings it to $42
    x 2 people
    = $84 just for frozen drinks over the course of a day
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    add in lunch at $10 pp plus tip = $25

    add in dinner and wine at $60 pp plus tip $135

    add up and there ya go! The Riu or a place similar could be a logical option!!
    a splurge yup
    a savings yup
    the niceness (luxuries) of the riu "can be bought" ;-)
