When you are having a holiday on a beach or a resort, which do you prefer? A place that is exclusive where only members are allowed to use the entire place--from rooms to restaurants to other amenities, and the beach/pool... or a beach or resort open to the public. "Open to the public" may or may not require an entrance free, not like exclusive ones where members with annual or monthly fees are paid. I once was invited to a exclusive resort and I won't deny that the luxury awed me. We were treated as if we were the owners of the place. That must be the equivalent of the high monthly fee. But, yes, I enjoyed my stay there. I even had the beach all by myself! Unlike in public beaches where it is hard to find your own spot.
