Staff Faves: Best Exclusive Perks of 2021

Earlier this year, ALG Vacations™ announced that all of our … well, exclusive perks will now be part of one grand collection. Here are the ones that got our staff the most stoked.

It was on New Year’s Eve that we broke the news right here on TravelBlogue that our individual brand’s exclusive perks was being consolidated into one easy-to-use and easy-to-understand universal program across Apple Vacations, Funjet Vacations, Southwest Vacations,  Travel Impressions, and United Vacations. And boy, are the perks good this year! So let’s dig in to the highlight reel of our team faves so you can see just why we’re so psyched to have expanded our ALGV-only benefits into one robust collection.

Special Welcomes

In a show of sisterly love, AMResorts has put together a fantastic package of specials now available by default to anyone  who books a regular stay* at Zoëtry Wellness & Spa Resorts, Secrets Resorts & Spas, Breathless Resorts & Spas, Dreams Resorts & Spas, Now Resorts & Spas, and Sunscape Resorts & Spas through any of our tour operator brands. This includes upgraded transfers, an in-room treat upon arrival, one family or Champagne breakfast per stay, and a 25% discount on treatments at their Pevonia-affiliated spas—an indulgence we highly recommend.

Barceló properties across Mexico and the Caribbean, from Barceló Hotels & Resorts and Barceló Palaces to Occidental properties, have also put together their own special welcomes for our guests only. You’ll get a personal bottle of rum, tequila or wine to enjoy in the privacy of your room, in addition to an extra $200 in resort discounts to amp up your stay.

*Excludes Run of House and Deal of the Day rooms

Bonus Bennies for Upgraded Stays

The special welcome package is just the starting point. Guests who choose a higher room category at AMResorts properties get up to two additional amenities, compounding on the value of booking with ALGV brands. And best of all, because each property is uniquely distinct and responsibly authentic to the geography and culture of their location, the choices vary. For instance, cultural travelers will appreciate locally made artisan keepsakes, while complimentary beach bags and Bali bed rentals may be the top choices for beach loungers. A sunset cruise or chocolate truffle option is ideal for romance, and wellness travelers will gravitate more toward complimentary massages or fish therapy. Depending on travel style and priorities, you can pick a property based on perk, or vice versa. Either way, it’s another way to personalize a perfect getaway.

R&R Like a VIP

During these tumultuous times, who couldn’t use a little more relaxation? If you agree, then you’ll be glad we’ve got you—our Exclusive Perks list includes a laundry list of spa specials. NOBU Los Cabos, an ultra-luxe new EP property on the West Coast, is giving ALGV guests $100 per room toward treating oneself to a 50-minute or longer treatment at its absolutely amazing spa literally built around a Zen aesthetic. Grand Fiesta Americana Los Cabos is providing a $60 spa credit  per room, too, and you can snag $50 toward the spa at Explorean Cozumel and Fiesta Americana Cozumel. But if you want to leave the driving to the pros when it comes to crafting a spa package, all Blue Diamond Resorts—this includes all Royalton, Royalton CHIC, Hideaway, Planet Hollywood, and Adult Scene properties as well as Grand Lido Negril—are giving Diamond Club-level vacationers a package worth $150 per person. They can book this with their butler or personal agent once they arrive, and enjoy a 25% discount on anything they want to add on.

Family Values

Azul Beach Riviera Cancun is making a family vacation as affordable as a couples getaway for those with up to two kids for each pair of adults—the small fry get to stay, play, and eat for free in their spacious suites, as well as preferred assignments for Luxury Oceanview, Luxury Walkout, and Family Suite categories. And at Coral Level at Iberostar Selection Bavaro, you won’t have to worry about coming up with ideas to keep the types entertained when you can take advantage of a special movie night package worth $100, complete with special room service options, pizza, popcorn, sweet treats, and other snacks for all!

Ramp Up the Romance Without the Effort

Don’t have kids, or looking to leave them at home while you take a romantic interlude? We’ve got you covered as well. Oceanfront Suite guests of the Coral Level at Iberostar Selection Cancun can book a private dinner at the restaurant of their choice with a special menu and upgraded wine—a $150 value!—with the concierge on us. Vacationers staying at select Zoëtry, Secrets, Breathless, Dreams, Now, or Sunscape properties may choose book a Romantic Dinner package for up to half off; one particular Zoëtry property, Villa Rolandi Isla Mujeres, even lets you choose a sunset tour. UNICO 20.87. Riviera Maya is also providing a romantic jaunt—stay five nights or more and you’ll get a free upgraded signature tour in addition to the high value the resort already provides with their generous Unlimited Inclusions, which lets you golf, play, tour, and pamper yourself for the negligible cost of a 25% tip.

Ride in Style & Extra Safety

We’re all responsibly social distancing, even as we travel, and especially at our TripTrust™-certified partner properties. Now, with select room categories at certain resorts, you can expand that circle of safety with included private roundtrip airport transfers for up to six passengers! This is available for Rock Royalty Ocean View, Rock Royalty Caribbean, Sand Suite, and Rock Royalty Partial Ocean View guests at the all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotels in Cancun, Riviera Maya, Punta Cana, Los Cabos, and Vallarta, as well as Iberostar Grand Paraiso and Iberostar Grand Bavaro.

Don’t forget that this is just the highlight reel, though! Included roundtrip transfers, VIP event invitations, private cabana rentals, and a lot more are also part of the new 2021 ALG Vacations™ Exclusive Perks collection.
