A couple of the latest reviews have really knocked the VIM for making them feel like 2nd class citizens in relation to the "Privileged" class. Even in one of the bar areas?
I'm trying to think of all the other resorts I've stayed in, and I don't think there was a "better" class, only better rooms -- but same facilities -- except for maybe some pools and bars around the rooms.
I don't mind walking a little further on the beach. In fact, we probably won't even have to do this, since we probably don't need a palpala, but just two loungers somewhere --- I'm assuming you can sit anywhere you want on the beach -- just not on the "Privileged" beds, right?
I'm sure hoping its not going to be any kind of a big deal, that I'm reminded about on a daily basis.
Do they even get a lot of "Privileged" guests anyway? I'd rather be able to take more vacations,. than pay to do it up all super-duper fabulous, upgraded, fancy-smantzy.
At the Golden Parnassus, we upgraded to the best room they had. We did get some perks (an in-room dinner, a boat cruise, etc) but nothing that would let the other guests know that WE were better than THEM, and keeping us in our special little area away from them -- that would be STUPID, in my opinion.
Again - I hope it isn't going to be any big deal.
