I currently have two reservations on hold with the secrets the vine in cancun. Deluxe Ocean View and Club Junior Suite with Ocean View. The price difference is about $350 for a week.
I've read reviews saying preferred is a rip off and others saying it's worth to splurge the extra money - totally confused. The details I've read (on Facebook, hotel website, and TA) are really high-level and don't give out too many details.
Outside of a larger room and private pool, what is the real difference? What different alcohol do you get as a preferred guest? Is the preferred pool any better than the other pools? What are the extra amenities that one gets as preferred?
In the end I know $350 isn't much for the week - however, in the past I have fallen for VIP type packages which didn't offer much except a title (which I could care less about). In the end - i could spend that money on tips and spa treatments instead.
Any input would be appreciated.
