VIM question

Hey all

New poster here but been reading all your advice about the area, which has been very informative.

Apologies if this has been covered but I can't remember reading it, although I've read a lot so may have lol

Me and hubby to be have booked our honeymoon to the VIM for next May and was wondering is there is shade on the beach? Or is there only shade with those beds that are reserved with guest names on? I know some people have said you can use the beds without names but just want to know if there is any shaded areas for the "lower class" people lol

Thanks in advance!

Lisa, head over to the Playa del Secreto forum for the best response to questions about VIM.


Once you get there, check the "Top Questions" (on the upper right if you're on a computer browser and not a mobile device) and you can see links to maps. There are plenty of palapas on the beach that are not dedicated for Privilege guests.

Hi and congrats on the upcoming wedding. When we were there, there were palapas on the beach further down from the bar but the perk in that was they were in front of the nicest swimming portion of the beach.

May is toward the start of the low season so I would wait on upgrading to a preferred package. You may not need it. If there are no names on the reserved areas then they have no guests that have reserved them. You are free to use them until you see a name on it.

They offered us an upgrade at check-in for a Diamond Suite for 750.00 - came with a preferred package - gorgeous terrace, jacuzzi. Loved it. However, VIM is a great resort and all of the rooms are very nice. You'll have a great time.
