We are Platinum, and have booked JW with points for May. What's the scoop with Club 91? Do we have a good shot at being upgraded to that access, or should we use more points/$$. Is this a concierge lounge, or a level with special rooms? Any info from a recent stay would be greatly appreciated!
It depends on what type of traveler you are. If you want to stay on the property and not worry about where to eat or drink and how much it is going to cost, then Club 91 is the way to go. If you are the type of person that likes to go out and try the local food, then it isn't. We just got back and loved it so much we are planning a return trip, but we are the type of travelers that go for 6 days and never leave the property. I used points for two of us and paid for the third adult. My bill just hit my credit card and I paid $380 USD for 5 nights for the 3rd person. That's not a bad daily average. I don't anywhere you can eat, drink and stay for $76 a day. We got our money back just in beverages. There is canned drinks, bottle water available and the open bar is really nice if you drink. They even had champagne at breakfast to mix with the fruit juices. The staff is top notch and the free ground transportation saves you $16/each way per person. The food was really good and there is always something being served. Breakfast, snack, lunch, afternoon tea (basically another snack), dinner and then desserts. We all gained at least 5lbs. They highlight a different restaurant every night so you get to try different things.
It takes the fun out of being in the club when you pay for it because I can also just pay for the restaurant. Why is it a club?
Club 91 is the way to go if you like to eat all day and stay at the hotel all day. I like to go out and try the other restaurants and visit the ruins there. there are alot of nice hotels with night life in Cancun
