Throughout my years of travelling, I’ve heard many people say they’d never stay at an all-inclusive resort. When I would ask them why they could never give a legitimate reason. Often the reasons they’d give were based on misinformation. So I decided to share my 7 reasons to try an all-inclusive resort.
All-Inclusive Resorts are usually in locations that have a good climate all year long. You can have the peace of mind knowing that the location will be warm no matter when you go. I’ve visited all-inclusive resorts at all different times of the year and only experienced rain a few times, and even then it was only for a short period then the sun was back.
A Resort for Every Kind of Traveller
Whether you’re a solo traveller, a couple, a family, or a group of adults you can be sure there’s an all-inclusive resort for you.
Resorts for couples usually focus on romantic experiences. Resorts for families usually have activities for kids throughout the day. While adult-only resorts tend to focus on the nightlife.
No matter what kind of traveller you are, or what you’re looking for, there’s an all-inclusive resort for you.
Unlimited Food & Drinks
This is probably one of the biggest benefits of staying at an all-inclusive resort. All your food and drinks (yes, that includes alcohol) are taken care of, and unlimited. Most resorts will have between 3-5 restaurants (usually with different themes), at least one buffet, and several bars. This is on top of the pool-side and beach service that you’ll also receive.
Some resorts may require you to wear a bracelet during your stay to know at a glance that you’re all-inclusive, other resorts just ask for your room number.
Get The VIP Treatment
When you stay at an all-inclusive resort you’re going to get pampered, that’s for sure!
All-Inclusive Resorts offer butler service, in-room refrigerators stocked with all your favourite beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and snacks, nightly turndown service, a personal concierge, and 24-hour room service.
There’s no better way to escape reality than to have all your wants and desires taken care of for you.
Excursions, Excursions, Excursions
As soon as you check into your resort you’ll see a plethora of excursions and activities that you can do. Some might be to the nearby cities to experience the local culture, some to historical sites, and some outdoor activities.
All excursions are at an extra cost of course, but if you need a little break from the pool or beach then a little getaway might be just right.
All The Best Amenities
Aside from the pools (yes, there are usually more than one) and the beach (if your resort is beachside) all-inclusive resorts usually include other amenities such as a gym, spa, games room, or paddleboards and kayaks.
The level and quality of the amenities go hand-in-hand with the category of resort you stay at but they all come with some amenities.
Last by not least on my list of 7 reasons to try an all-inclusive resort is resort security.
Most all-inclusive resorts are in remote and secure locations and often gated. When your airport shuttle takes you onto the resort they have to pass through guards that check your name(s) against a manifesto. This gives you peace of mind knowing that not just anyone can come onto the resort.
