Lodged in another hotel downtown San Pedro, I rented a bicycle for a tour of the island, looking for a swimming spot, and I stumbled upon the Grand Caribe this and decided to spend some time at the pool.
The plus: this resort does sell daily passes. 30 BZE dollars (15 US). Not particularly pricey considering the category of the resort. The pool is lovely, with a splendid view of the Caribbean Sea, it is shallow but large, surrounded by neatly maintained lawns, coconut trees, chaises all around, a bar (of course!), and an impeccable washroom. In short, a beautiful facility in a fancy hotel.
The (big) minus: for the pass, you don't get a towel. I had been carrying my own towel as I didn't know where I would swim in advance, but I didn't want to get it wet and carry it with me all the way back to San Pedro. But when I went to the reception to ask for one, I was told and I quote: "Sorry, towels are for guests only". That was unpleasant, both the gist of the message and the way it was delivered, especially considering my request was not unreasonable if not completely natural.
I think it's a shame. And a shortcoming.
