All inclusive hotels with day passes arriving soon!!

We are arriving very soon on a cruise ship and would like to spend some days at an all inclusive resort/hotel. Would like chairs, beach, showers, meals, drinks, etc. Please advise soon!! Thanks!!

I suggest that you pass on the all inclusive. Take a taxi to the Radisson. Walk behind the hotel to the beach. Look to the left. There will be a building on a pier. You can rent chairs and umbrellas there. Also, the Bugaloe Restaurant is on that pier. Nice setting. Casual food. For more upscale dining, walk back to the Radisson. Sunset Grill Restaurant. Or, for another casual choice, Gilligan's right off the beach at the Radisson.

Another option is to take a taxi to Nikki Beach. It is very close to the cruise terminal. Minimal taxi fare. Good food and beach chair rentals available. Very nice, but I would choose the Radisson/Bugloe option. JMO. Either is a good choice. Maybe, post a few questions about each.

I think the only one with a day pass is the RIU. Not sure of the price, e-mail them.

Besides the Riu....The Renaissance has passes to their private island for $75 pp. Includes lunch, one drink and float or snorkel equipment.

Also check with the Occidental. Last I heard they offered all inclusive as well.

The RIU all inclusive day pass is approx. $105/person. I think the Occidental all inclusive is around $95/person. It would be best to email both resorts for the exact price and details.

Again, why do AI? For similar money, you can have a broader choice of dining options and the freedom to move from one place to another. If the OP is only interested in AI, so be it.

I'm inclined to agree with Tony, but perhaps if I were a big drinker I'd be interested in AI. Pounding piña coladas adds up fast. LOL

Lori, only one drink is included with the AI day pass according to one of these posts. I don't think you would get use of facilities, food and drinks for $75, $95 or $105 pp. Five drinks and everything else would a bonus. lol.

The Ren day pass is not all inclusive but includes use of their private island, lunch and one drink.

The Riu and Occidental day passes ARE all inclusive and includes use of facilities, pool, and all food and all drinks for the day.

Wow! That's a deal. Especially for people who will drink a lot. For the one or two drink types, I still would choose a non AI option. JMO.
