Cost of resort for a day?

Out of curiosity how much would it cost to go onto resort grounds and use their amenities for the day? Obviously it must vary greatly but for the most part it is outrageously priced or do they usually offer reasonable rates? Thanks

Re: Cost of resort for a day?

Any thing you can think of is possible. From zero because you are not allowed on the grounds, to $xx to use some amenities but not others, free but dress codes, to outrageous. You have to name the place and situation. They are all different.

Based on what I have personally seen, normally it is free if they have a marina and you are paying for a slip. If they don't have a marina it varies from $10 a day to use the pool and gym up to $130 a day for a day pass to Sandals (which includes unlimited food and drink). Almost all resorts I have seen will let you use their restaurant if they are not all inclusive.

Re: Cost of resort for a day?

Thanks so much!
exMaggieDrum, I understand my original question was very general, and that is because I really had no specific scenario in mind. Just wanted a general rule of thumb as to whether or not they are known to overcharge or known to be a cheap way to escape for the day. Thanks for the response though it did still give me some of the insight i was looking for!

RainDog, thank you! Thats just what I was looking for..

Sandles in Jamaica charges $50 a day for locals and $100/day for non-locals for a pass including food and drinks but not water sports.

It all depends on where you are and what you want to do.

Re: Cost of resort for a day?

There are various yacht clubs with reciprocal usage offering pools, showers, reasonable food. Also some timeshare ownerships allow for usage of their facilities by association, sort of like the reciprocal yacht clubs. I've stayed in beautiful condos for $199 a week in Cabo San Lucas. It was a nice diversion for less than $30 a day.
