Not sure where to put this; it's kinda an activities question, kinda a hotel question.
We're contemplating visiting either DePalm private island (I think $89 pp for a day) or get a room at the Renaissance for $212 a night and have access to the island for 2 days.
As some of you know, DePalm includes all you can eat food, all you can drink beverages, they provide snorkel gear, chairs and shade. We won't have the kids with us so the volleyball court, basketball court and banana boat don't matter.
In comparison, what is provided at Renaissance island? Do they provide anything other than the boat taxi there if you are a guest at the hotel? Do you have to purchase food and drinks? Can you take your own cooler? I told my hubby it might be a nice way to check out the Renaissance.
If you purchase day passes for Renaissance ($99) it does include lunch and a cocktail I believe.
