My sister-in-law and brother-in-law used the pool at the Marriott without any issues. They were staying at Timothy Beach as well. When they asked for towels, they were asked what their room number was and they said they were just using the casino. Maybe it depends on who you ask/how busy the hotel actually is. But it certainly is worth a try if that's what you want to do.

We met multiple people at the hotel who were not guests but were using the pool & beach cabanas. Yes, there are signs that prohibit use for non guests, so they could ask you to leave at any time, but you might be able to get away with it.

I think what would give you up would be your towels (hotel guests have blue striped ones while timeshare owners have pink ones). You need a towel card to get towels, so they aren't going to give them to you at the stand. I met several Ross students who were using the cabanas and chairs without Marriott towels and no one said anything to them though.

Have you thought about calling the hotel to see if they offer day passes? That way you could use the hotel facilities legally and not have to worry about getting kicked out.

I too have used the Marriott pool when I stayed with family on the island. If the hotel isn't busy and you do it discreatly you shouldn't have a problem.

They do offer day passes for cruise ship guests, so contact the hotel directly.

To all those who enjoy those "freebees". How would you feel when you stay at a hotel and pay good money just to find out that there are plenty of "freebee" users who take up the chairs & space for "free". I am sure you would be the first to go and complain.

So if you want to do the right thing, go and get the day pass at the Marriott. This way you don't have to feel guilty using the facilities.

Remember, the Marriott is a private property and not a public swimming pool.

In regards to the beach, all beaches in St. Kitts are public beaches, Marriott does and cannot control who is on the beach. That's the reason why you see plenty of students down there.

Ozfan, yes, the beaches are public...that means that the students can use the beach itself for free. That does not mean that they can use the chairs & the cabanas for free. If they want to be totally legit, they need day passes as well.
