Visiting other Resorts while staying (group split)


I'm just wondering if its okay to visit a resort if your staying at another one (we are looking to go down as a group, but due to budgets we may stay a two resorts that are close by) to visit friends at another?

I'm assuming the visiting people can't use the facilities/restaurants etc.

You will have to meet at the beach or at one of the local restaurants or bars in the Plaza. To visit another resort you will have to pay the day fee which is very expensive ($75-90 a person).

Yes Day Passes are very expensive to visit each others hotel and use the facilities. Also resorts have different timings some are from 9.30am to 5pm others start at 10am to 6pm. Arrangements would have to made in advance as resorts only have so many day passes for allocation and availability on how busy each resort is.

As Bob mentioned best to meet on the beach but you wont be able to use the sun loungers supplied on the beach in front of hotels either with the different wrist band from another resort, security will see to that ! So make sure you take beach towels.

This is the bad thing about all inclusive resorts, you cant just visit your friends, without paying for it. Even if you are right next door.

You can visit on the beach, without using the sun chairs, or at a non resorts area, like the plaza at playa dorada.
