    Hi - is this real? If attending a wedding here and wanting to spend time with family and friends on the Velas Vallarta property, but residing at a nearby private accommodation -- will we have to pay each time we enter the facility? Or is this a rumor started by the competition?

    that is actually pretty common practice for all-inclusive resorts to charge a day pass fee for those that are not the guest of the hotel.

     

    1. it is an all-inclusive so who is going to pay for the food and drink consumed by non-guests?  other guests should not have too subsidize this with higher rates.

     

    2. when a guests chooses to stay at the resort and pays to do so, they are expecting a certain level of service and availability of amenities to them...not to any joe-shmoe that walks off the street.

     

    3. security.  again, less chance of random people on the resort if there is security and you have to pay a day pass fee to get on the resort.

     

    Why would anyone pay to stay at an all-inclusive if they were open to everyone?  You can just stay at the cheaper resort down the street and go to the nearest all-inclusive resort to get all the free food and drinks you can eat/drink.
