I usually dress in buniess attire, even on the weekends and hope it doesn't make people uncomfortable if I stop by the outlet mall in my suit during the workday.

As far as marketing, I think the issue should be raised with the travel agent with whom you booked and use another company or DIY next time.

I also think the first week or month of anything new will have kinks and they have to be expected.
A mall is not a fair comparison imo. The reason most of us are comfortable wearing swimsuits at the pool, beach, water park is because everyone is there for the same purpose and similarly attired. Those of us who will wear a bikini/trunks at the pool wouldnt wear them at the mall because it isnt the expected attire for a mall.

So, when a pool/beach/water park has a group of people fully clothed in suits it changes the vibe and the power structure. Theres a vulnerability inherent when were all dressed for the pool. When someone is sitting in a suit watching people in swimwear it changes the power structure and its not comfortable.

Of course this isnt the usual vibe at CSR and the conventions all have different demographics. Ok sure some times its overrun with kids groups or teen groups etc. We just happened to hit at the same time as a group that was overwhelmingly men, some of whom were open to a good time. I dont want to suggest for a second that others going should be expecting a similar vibe or that nobody can wear business attire ever at a resort. I dont think its cultural and I doubt many people would feel comfortable in their swimming/resort costume when the pool is mostly men in suits drinking beer 🤷
