GBP How do they identify what resort you're staying in?

My only other all-inclusive was at Excellence. There was only two different levels. If I remember correctly, as far as access to the private "Club" section of the beach, the "Club" guests were identified by the color of the towels. Entry into the "Club" was only after you identified yourself to the hostess. I don't recall any other differences. How are the different levels identified at Gran Bahia Principe?

You would be Identified by wrist bracelets of different colours.

Another question. Is that a common practice at AI's?

Yep, wrist bracelet all the time and yes, they are different colours at each complex. The only time in 9 all inclusive trips I did not have to wear a band is at the Dreams resort.

You get used to it, it's not annoying at all but I suggest putting it on your non dominant hand...

OK, thanks; I drink with my right hand so I guess i know what hand I'll put my bracelet on. BTW: Excellence was sans bracelets.

Here's a link to a forum post by our fellow destination expert, Brooklin, regarding the color of the wrist bands at the Gran Bahia resorts that you might find interesting:

Stephen,

You keep mentioning Excellence in all of your posts. Excellence is one of the few resorts that have no bracelets.......so. All other resorts have bracelets and everyone gets used to them. No big deal.

Paulette,

I mention Excellence in all my posts because Excellence is the only AI I've been to. What's your problem? One poster thanked me and said it was good to know, so I'll ask again; what's your problem?
