My husband and I stopped at Freeport during a cruise this May and bought the $10/pp day pass which only included access to the private beach and hotel grounds, but no towels, which wansn't a big deal.
The guard at the entrance to the beach was so friendly. Cracking jokes and really made us feel welcome.
The waters were choppy so we didn't do much swimming, but instead grabbed a couple of lounge chairs and sat for a bit and then walked along the beach.
We spent most of our time in the infinity pool, hot tub and laying in a hammock. Those areas were pretty quiet. Many people were reading and laying out. There were a mix of couples and families and everyone seemed to be having a relaxing time.
We ordered a couple drinks from Sharks Swim up Bar and were suprised by how rude the bartender was. He seemed annoyed with customers. We didn't order any more after that experience.
We spent about 5 hours on the grounds before heading just down the beach to Billy Joes Conch Shop where we had lunch and listened to music.
Overall our experience was a good one!
