Why We Prefer “Preferred Club”

When booking your favorite Am Resort, you might hear of the mysterious “Preferred Club.”

Preferred Club is an upgraded room selection with added amenities and privileges. Think of it as that little extra “umph” in your day. Like when you pick up a Vanilla-Carmel Latte on the way to work, treating yourself to a four-course meal, or a wine night with friends. Just because you can. Sure, you can live without it, but isn’t life that much sweeter with it?

If you’re wondering if the “Preferred Club” is worth it for you…


Here are 8 Reasons Why We Prefer “Preferred Club”
feat. Secrets Capri



At Secrets Capri, all rooms are Preferred Club. Guests don’t miss out on any luxury here.

1. Celebrity status

They've been calling us "Mr. & Mrs. Ward" all week and I keep having to remind myself that they're talking to me.

Preferred Club guests don’t experience FOMO (fear of missing out). They know that they know that they’re at the height of luxury and not missing out on any resort perks.


2. Personal concierge service

In Preferred Club you can’t take more than a few steps outside your door before your concierge is right there by your side asking if you need anything at all. They are the nicest people around.


3. Private balconies with views

Escape to #SecretsPapagayo and enjoy the magnificent views of #CostaRica.

You are guaranteed the best seat in the house.


4. More options overall

Honeymooning it this trip? Hit up the Honeymoon suites, like at Secrets the Vine with an additional whirpool, balcony chaise lounge seating, & an optimal view of the ocean.


If you want a simpler Preferred Club experience, Secrets Capri has smaller Preferred Club rooms like the Preferred Club Junior Suite Ocean Front that will fit just right and still give you an upscale experience.




If your whole family’s coming along, Preferred Club Presidential suites offer much more space! If you’re with a group, your room will definitely be the place to hang. There’s lounge areas, separate living areas, big balconies, whirlpools for 8, and more. Check out the Presidential Suite at Secrets St. James.




5. Privacy options

The perfect spot to celebrate #beachThursday ☀️🌊🌴😎❤️

Private beach? Private pool access? How about your own personal whirlpool? At most resorts, as a Preferred Club guest, you can easily escape crowds without having to kiss the water goodbye with exclusive swim-out access or your own personal plunge pool or whirlpool on your balcony. Sometimes, you also get specialty pool & beach access when you’re Preferred Club, like at Dreams Villamagna Vallarta.


6. Maid service

Morning & night your bed will be made, dirty towels collected, and mini-bar replenished. At night, you may be surprised by chocolates on your bed, sometimes even rose petals strewn along your bed. There is no request “too elaborate” for your resort staff especially when you’re a Preferred Club guest.

7. Tv access

In Preferred Club you might end up with a smart Tv. Vacation Netflix binges are the best binges. On a rainy day, sleep in, order room service, and curl up somewhere in your massive room to enjoy what all adults love & never get to do — nothing.

8. Mini bar

It’s refreshed daily with soda, juice, water, and top-shelf spirits. You can also enjoy fun snacks that are left in your room like Peanut M&M’s and Pringles.
