I was at Maracas Beach in Trinidad and returned to the Hyatt to kill some time before my 1AM flight to Tobago. I hadn’t had a chance to check out the pool so I thought I’d go take a look. The pool is on the 4th floor and requires a key to get on the elevator. Since it was 5PM, my key no longer worked. I went to the front desk to request that my access be restored. Surprisingly, they said no and explained I’d have to stay another night to access the pool. Baffled, I stood there in silence. She went and asked the manager who granted me access until 7PM.
Status or no status, I always assumed that a guest is welcome to outstay his welcome longer after checkout. What effect does it have to deny someone access to amenities? Vegas lets guests go to the pool no questions asked, and those pools are happening. This is a great pool but it’s obviously not Vegas.
