Visiting other resorts?

We are staying in a private villa on TCI but would like to visit a resort or two while there. We have the kids and plan to buy a day pass to Beaches one day. How about the resorts that aren't all inclusive? Is it possible for outside guests to use the facilities as long as we pay for meals, drinks, etc...?

I am glad you asked that, not many people do. Instead they assume it is alright. The facilities, pools, chairs, towel etc are for paying guest only. Many people assume because they eat at the restaurant they can help themselves. The restaurants and the resorts are two separate establishments. Owned by different people, run by different people.

Most villas have beach chairs, umbrellas, and sometimes coolers to use throughout the island.

There are many public beach accesses with free parking on Grace Bay and all other beaches on island.

Yu can have lunch and buy drinks at their restaurants, but as above says, restaurants although in the resort are separate from the resort portion of lounges, umbrellas, etc.

Having meals and drinks at restaurants on Grace Bay does not entitle you to use the amenities of the resort.

The loungers,towels and pools are reserved for the guests of the resort.

There are many public access points where you may set up your villa chairs and enjoy Grace Bay beach.

Most restaurants are separate from the resort end of the property.

With the possible exception of Las Brisas on Chalk Sound, they are very recptive to families having lunch and then the kids have a dip in their pool.
