    Renaissance Island

    Being a frequent traveler and points hog, I've followed "The Points Guy" for years. Here's a review of Renaissance Island with cabana pricing.

    Nice article. We’ll be at the Renaissance for part of our November trip. I’ve been debating on reserving a cabana on the island. We loved the cabana at the Ritz but just not sure I want to spend the whole day on the island.

    I read on one of the many sites out there, that the price will be increased again for the cabanas.

    I wrote them asking about reservations for a cabana in late November and here is the response (copied directly from my personal email): "Please be informed that the New Cabana template with Pricing for after August 31, 2019 will be released in the second week of August 2019,due to this fact, your request will be on a waiting list pending the new price list of September 2019 to December 01, 2019. We will do our best to contact you as soon as the price list comes out for the cabana rental 2019."

    We are looking into the cabana options at De Palm island as an alternative.

    i was thinking of a cabana too but if there’s a wait list I won’t bother. Kind of on the fence anyways

    Also, I sent you a pm but it didn’t seem to send. So.... you’ll either get 3 messages or no messages. Sorry!! See you in November.

    Got your messages, Peg. I would say just wait until September when the new prices are out and try then. They are good at responding. Cabanas anywhere can be pricey, but we did one on a cruise once and were hooked. It's one my most memorable vacation days, and was worth every penny.

    Agree. We did a cabana at the Ritz and positively loved it. I had said we would only do it one day but ended up getting it the next day as well. The thing that is giving me pause at the Renaissance is when we stay there Tom usually likes to go over to the Crystal during the day. I usually spend the day at the beach/pool and catch up with him later. Since we’re only there a few days I don’t want to make him feel like he has to spend the whole day on the island.

    There is a lot of natural shade on Ren Island.
