What Are Day Passes? How Do You Get Resort Day Passes?
Here's a little known Caribbean Island tip! You can enjoy Caribbean stays and save money away from the crowds in the privacy of beach houses or beach vacation villas and tap the perks of all-inclusive resorts without paying their hefty daily room rates. Here's how it works. Purchase a day pass that provides access to resort facilities, including dining and bars. For instance, at Hedonism II in Negril, Jamaica, you can purchase a day or night pass and, once on property; enjoy the resort just like a guest, including unlimited dining and bars. Day passes cover all facilities from 10 am until 6:30 pm for $65. Night passes are $75 per person and cover all amenities from 6:30 pm until the wee hours
Other resorts offering day passes include: Harbour Village Beach Club on Bonaire, Sugar Bay Club on St. Kitts, Ti Kaye Village on St. Lucia, Sandals and Grand Royal Antiguan Beach Resort on Antigua.
Day passes are often not advertised, but there's nothing to lose by contacting all-inclusive resorts at your destination and requesting a day pass. Reservations are usually required and passes are limited during peak holidays periods.
