This popular and ever-expanding concept runs the gamut from budget to ultra-luxury, basic rooms with a garden view to sprawling suites with private pools and everything in between. All-inclusives are typically in warm weather destinations, the most popular being Mexico and the Caribbean.
One of the biggest perks of an all-inclusive is the value. Because all of your meals, entertainment and most activities are typically included, there are no surprises when it comes time to pay your bill. Many all-inclusives also have a ‘no tipping’ policy, which can save you some extra cash. As long as you don’t go overboard on spa treatments and excursions, all-inclusives make it easy to stay within budget.
As a one-stop-shop, you never have to worry about where and what to eat. With all-inclusives offering so many dining options, travelers can usually find their favorite type of cuisine without ever setting foot off property. Options can typically range from Japanese and Thai to fish restaurants, French cuisine, Mexican, continental and more. Many all-inclusives also offer room service.
All-inclusives also cater to those looking for an adults-only getaway or a kid-friendly vacation. Adults-only resorts, which are often preferred by honeymooners, offer the promise of serenity and romance. Expect solitude and the luxury of not being on a routine.
