Hi -

When we have a day in PV we have typically purchased a day pass at Krystal's. I have read that they are under 'new' management (not sure how new is new). The last time we were there was in 2009 so things have probably changed.

Anyway, does anyone know if Krystal's still sells a day pass to cruise ship passengers and if so, how much are they going for now? Any other options for a day pass at a resort in PV is most welcome. We will be there in September on the Grand Princess.

Gracias!

Krystall still sells daypasses to cruise passengers as far as I know. I think for just a few US$ you can use their pool and beach.
Food and drinks not included. However be aware the grounds have changed since a few years as part of the buildings, pool and garden are now the allin Hilton.
Please use the search function you will find more postings as people also went to the Marriott. They have an allin daypass.
Also the Los Arcos Hotel and Hotel Tropicana in old town offers passes.

We used the amenities and enjoyed la Casa Magna at the Marriott. We rented a room actually (it worked for us because we had a toddler who needed a nap and we were in PV two days) but they did have day pass options also.
