What You Cover

While the bulk of the expense is covered by the prize, there are some items that you will be responsible for: food and beverages, transportation, spa services, laundry, golf, deep sea fishing, gratuity, and personal purchases. See below for a guide to help estimate your additional costs.

Additional Cost Guide

Food & Alcohol Estimate – Plan on approximately $100/day/couple (+/-). This can vary depending on the food choices you select and the amount of alcohol guest’s consume during their stay. A $700/couple cash deposit is due at time of your arrival to enable the staff to purchase fresh stock daily during your stay.

Gratuity – This is very much expected for the staff. A good rule of thumb is $240/couple/week. Staff will be providing services for you Saturday to Saturday (morning to night).

Transportation – Suenos contracts with a licensed private limo service that will take care of all your transportation needs during your stay including the airport, golf, sightseeing, activities, etc. Payable either at time of service or at the end of your stay.
