Preferred Club at SRB

In recent reviews of SRB, a Preferred Club is mentioned. I wasn't aware they had one. I know NOW has one...is this what they are talking about? If SRB has one, what is it all about?

I am at SRB right now. And it is in the planning stages, but does not exist YET. I will get more info before I leave and will post a better explanation when I get home. Ok ? I wondered the same thing :)

Thank you, wbauer. It's strange that people are already speaking of it in reviews. Must have been talking about NOW. Hope you are enjoying yourself there....

I think they may have let some people pay more to upgrade to a better room, and told them it was part of the preferred club, but we plan on asking the front desk today :)

In other Secret loacations, pref club is a level you can pay for "garden view" or " garden view preferred". The Pref Club, has separate check in area and lounge. Upgrade in liquor in room and lounge. Rooms are usually in building closest to ocean.

I would love to know the answer to this as well. I am now staying here and would possibly upgrade if the rights things were included and as always the price was right.

Ok, I just got home, and it's over ! (for now) . Here is the 411 on the preferred club. I was handed a bulletin on SRB letter head that explains a NEW vip "Preferred Club Section" @ SRB. Basically, you are a SRB hotel guest,HOWEVER, your room is actually located in the NOW side.

This is what you get:

-private preferred club lounge

-Check in/out services PC lounge

-Unlimited prem. liquors in PC lounge

-Daily continental breakfast served in PC lounge

-Preferred status and amenities

-Concierge services

-Choose pillow of your preference from their pillow menu

-complimentary daily newspaper delivered to your room (avail. in english/spanish/german)

-Free WiFi in PC lounge( free loaner ipads while in lounge)

-upgraded mini bar in your room

-upscale bath amenities

-private swimming pool w/ exclusive bar

-private beach area

-private seating area for b'fast / lunch at Seaside grill restaurant

I was told it was an approx cost of $100/ day, but not sure if that is 100 more than "basic room" or 100 more than ocean/pool view.

p.s. when I met with the concierge to get this info, I spoke on behalf of the TA people on here that complain about having to pay for internet, and I was told that they are looking into providing free WiFi in SRB lobby only. I said you do know you will have a lobby full of people sitting around on their laptops and ipads, etc. and she said, yah yah, I know......

I think it is the front of the right building at NOW (facing the sea). The former wedding room is the new PC lounge...

As I said in another thread that is not a great location as the rooms look onto a service road between Now Larimar & SRB

I still don't like the idea of a PC at SRB. For security it must be much more difficult to control, that NOW guests don't pass over to the other side...
