    Does anyone know what the daily cost is to rent one of the bed cabanas at the far left of the pool deck at Villa del Arco?

    Thanks

    I think those are reserved for Villa Preferred Access (VPA) Elite points members. You also get a black towel and certain areas of the resort that only VPA elite members can access. You could ask for this at a presentation and Im pretty sure they would give it to you for attending.

    Thanks Bill. That makes sense. Although when we were there 1 1/2 years ago they were hardly ever occupied.

    I didn't see a way to edit my above post, but I did follow the link you provided and found this under the Five Star benefits: "Priority Reservation for Beach Cabanas: Enjoy the life of luxury. Our Five Star and Elite Residence Club members are allowed complimentary access and priority reservations for beach cabanas and VIP areas at resort destinations that have such amenities as a part of their service. Just contact your Elite Concierge."

    As I read this, others (non-VPA priority members) are not denied access to the cabana beds, it's just that the others get priority (and it is complimentary for them.)

    Hi Steve...
    We're in Cabo right now staying at VDP Cabo. We were over at Arco today. Yes, it's true that elite members can use the cabanas for no additional fees. The cabanas are also available for a daily fee. There are three different menu options available at 899/1099/1299 pesos. Each of these options includes the use of the cabana plus some combination of a couple of bottled waters, some apps and a 10 minute massage of different options. Typically these need to be reserved a day or two in advance. See one of the pool concierges Jorge or Heriberto.

    Hope this helps
