Frank and debbie were telling me about buying a day pass at los arcos hotel ,it cost 200 pesos but in-return you get a credit for 200 pesos for food and drinks ,after your 200 runs out you just pay what you owe, sounds like a good deal to me and you get to use a palapa on the beach.

There are plenty of places along Playa Los Muertos you can get a palapa or an umbrella without paying 200 up front, as long as you eat and or drink. I don't know what PLA's prices are like, but I bet most will be less expensive than what a hotel charges.
Some of the restaurant/bar choices are: época, Burros Bar, Langostinos, Cuates y Cuetes, El Dorado, La Palapa, Fidencios, Blue Chairs, Ritmos Beach Club aka Green Chairs.

agree with you ,but it would be a nice way to check out the hotel pool ,food and drinks before staying there and it really does not cost anything to do this except the day pass and you get that back by having something to eat and drink. If you were thinking about staying there in the future.

And as far as cyc goes ,food and drink can get a little pricy for just sitting there, I know my tab for 1 person was well over 200 pesos ,but I do like to drink

Good info Jeff - many people that don't have access to a pool - have asked about day passes .

True day passes are available at several hotels for those that want to use the pools. Plus the Tropicana and Lindo Mar will let you use their pools as long as you purchase drinks/snacks at their snack bar or restaurant facilities (the happy hour at the Lindo Mar alone is worth the price and the trip out for the pool - best 2x1 pour on the bay, hands down).
Dreams offers a fantastic day pass as a matter of fact - the day pass includes ALL food and drink for the day, full beach and pool access, in/out privileges at the resort, and the ability to make a reservation at one of the a la carte restaurants for dinner. This pass in the shoulder season is about 700 pesos for the day - the dinner privilege alone is worth that price.

los arcos drink and menu prices are competitive with the other places close by and they have the 2x1 happy hour, 1-3pm

I thought maybe those were their "evil twin's names"? Ha! Ha! Jeff, we were so surprised when you came walking up to the GCP the next morning. I figured after all you had to drink the night before that you were down for the count but you were a trooper and went with us and even attempted to surf.
