Good resorts for a day pass?

Do you mean get a day pass for an All Inclusive day? I would advise against it, not worth it, IMO.

Marriott is our favorite casino. The Hyatt is nice but they still have coin dispensed slots - annoying. We also like the casino at the Renaissance downtown.

Thanks! I should also mention that our game of choice is roulette. Glad to hear a day pass isn't needed. I had a friend suggest doing it, that's why I asked.

Yeah, I wouldnt want to get a day pass to another resort. You'll have a blast just being at your own place hitting the beach and pools. No need to go somewhere else.

You can get a day pass to RIU. For one day, it might be a fun alternative.

my sister stays at LaCabana and hits the Alahambra at night, but mostly stays at her own beach....she recommends the food truck that parks there most days...

Hours for the RIU are 10 am-10:00 pm. The cost had been $100 per person a few years ago. No sure if went up.

Renaissance Aruba offers a day pass for their private island - i believe it is still US$75.00 p.p. - this includes the water taxi round trip -and lunch on the island - use of the various beaches, etc...there is a family beach and an adult topless beach, also several very small beaches all to enjoy.
