The W hotel #WetDeck is the perfect combination of party & relaxation. It feels like you picked the perfect destination hotel, but it’s right here in Old Town. Across the street from our famous strip of clubs, The W is a favorite hotel picked by upperclass locals for a staycation and rich foreigners, and that extends to their rootftop pool. The hotel also caters to the party scene it’s surrounded with by offering free entrance during the week to anyone matching the dress code, and
21+ Wet Deck access on weekends.
Mon-Friday the pool has a very relaxed vibe, Top 100’s playing, but not too loud. There are plenty of day beds, 2 person beds, and cabanas available for maximum comfort, and servers come around taking orders for food/drinks. Food and drinks are normally way overpriced, but come during happy hour and you can enjoy $7 snacks and $5 beers. There’s also free wifi, and I’ve seen lots of guys (presumably on business trips) on their laptops in the cabanas by the pool.
Sat-Sun typically guys pay to get in, and girls are free.
The pool gets pretty crowded these 2 days. Come before 1 if you want to get a tanning bed, and don’t expect to be able to sit anywhere else by the bar or pool unless you buy a table. It gets the most crowded around 3PM, and the music gets louder as the day goes on. You’ll see a lot of groups on their bachelorette weekend, and its mostly ladies until around 2PM. There’s a big mix of types of people. Mostly over 25, and there are plenty of not in shape individuals who are still boujee.
If you want an umbrella over your bed, don’t be afraid to ask, and there will be plenty of servers and staff around to keep your drink full. The vibe on weekends is in between crazy Maya pool party & relaxing resort pool.
