    The Marriott Ocean Club uses Towels to identify guests as does the Marriott Hotel and Surf Club - all different.

    We go over to the Surf Club when we stay off property, eat and drink at the bars, play pool bingo, etc. but we don't go in the lazy river unless we are registered there.

I could see if I were trying to get a drink or food I just wanted to walk thru.
    I had the same problem on two occasions. I had seen something in the window of the one of the shops at the Occidental one evening when we visited the casino. I walked back the next day to buy it and tried to walk through the pool area to the lobby (I was clothed and not wearing simply a swimsuit or swimsuit cover up). They were not going to let me through. I had to explain I was there to spend money at their establishment! I once also wanted to get a drink and a munchie, but I left when I was hassled.










    Hoping for a 30th anniversary trip to our favorite place.

    I don't know, but i was a little upset last week when my rental jeep had a sticker on it stating the license was recorded along with a towing threat. We had nowhere to park on the entire resort so we settled next to a curb as many other cars. All of the cars were "A" cars (non rentals) in the lot. Luckily I was up early at 4:15 am (masters practice at savaneta) an moved the vehicle before it was towed.

    I've only stayed at one resort where guests were issued with an identification(in the form of a wrist band) to mark one as a guest of that particular resort; and that resort was La Cabana. All the others, CPV, Coconut Inn, and the Marriot Surf Club, not so much. Surf Club provided me with wrist bands to use the pool and chair tags to mark my chair by the pool or on the beach. At CPV they did not give me anything, same for at the Coconut Inn. Although when going to breakfast I was required to give them my room number.

    I really did not mind the wrist band at La Cabana, wearing it was how Security Officers and management knew about my accident when a witness called them to let them know. For a while I was worried that the folks at the hospital were going to have to cut it off while they were conducting their exam. Thankfully the didn't have to, I grew sort of attached to mine; I did not remove it till the morning after I arrived back home. Wristbands can be a good way of identifying guests, as long as they are not put on too tight.

    Apart from wrist bands, maybe resorts would want to consider issuing lanyards with a bar code attached, or allowing guests to use their room keys as proof that they are guests at said resorts.

    I forgot about the towels at cPV, which came in quite helpful when we went to Moomba Beach.

    We own at Playa Linda, they have the silicone wrist bands/room keys but you are not required to wear them, I prefer to carrying a card key. They basically identify you by the towels, security is definitely visible.
