Tips / Destination

All-inclusive resorts can be a convenient way to travel. These tropical resorts normally include food, alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks and some water sports. Even though these amenities are all included in the original price, there are still things to keep in mind when staying at an all-inclusive resort.


  1. Expecting Everything to be Included


Although most things are included at an all-inclusive resort, there are still some things that will cost extra. If you want top-notch liquor, beer or wine, you are going to pay. If you want to golf, that will be extra. Also, there may be an upcharge for special restaurant dishes, such as lobster and steak. Some excursions and activities, like scuba diving lessons, reserving a beach bed and more can cost extra. Make sure to keep these things in mind when planning your trip and booking activities.


  1. Not Exploring the Whole Resort or Trying New Things


Even if you are more of a relaxed person on vacation and like to lay on the beach or sit by the pool, try switching it up a bit and explore the whole resort and surrounding areas. If you aren’t familiar with the area, visit the resort’s concierge desk and ask for advice on different activities and areas.


  1. Eat and Drink only Familiar things


Since most of the meals and drinks are inclusive and you can eat and drink whenever you want, don’t stick with your usual foods. This is your time to try new things without having to worry about it going to waste. Typically, most all-inclusive resorts have a buffet, making it easier to sample different dishes and drinks!


  1. Do your Research Before Booking


Some resorts may have different all-inclusive packages with different amenities included in each. Make sure you do your research before you book. Ensure you pick the right one for you and your group. You don’t want to end up paying for amenities you won’t use.
