The second we entered the lobby, we were handed a glass of champagne and a cool washcloth. It was a welcomed oasis after a full day of traveling. They then brought around appetizers to snack on while we sat in the check-in “lounge”. I whispered to Drew “this is amazing! How much better can this get”. Oh–you will be pleasantly surprised to know this was JUST the beginning.
I HIGHLY recommend every single person to stay at an all inclusive resort at least one time in their life and the Caribbean is the HUB of these resorts. You don’t have to be a millionaire to afford a stay here–some AI’s start at just $150/night (pretty darn good considering what that includes).
Why do they rock so much. Oh. Where to start?
The All Inclusive option provides a number of conveniences to you and appeals to couples, families and multi-generational travelers because everything is included and in one convenient place.
All-Inclusive’s or (AI for short) come with all the “basic” amenities that you would need on your vacation* including:
-Food. Most AI’s have several restaurants on resort to chose from ranging from Italian, French, Indian, Mexican, Tapas,
-Drinks (soft drinks and alcoholic drinks)
-Non-motorized water sports such as kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, sailing, hobie-cats
-Ocean front settings. Most resorts in the Caribbean are located RIGHT on the beach
-At least one pool (most resorts have several, some even have swim-up bars)
-Accommodations in your selected room of choice (from basic to luxury)
-Activities and entertainment (you won’t even need to leave…)
-Complimentary beach and towel service
SOME AI’s include the following:
– unlimited scuba diving, jet-skiing
-landsport’s such as tennis and golf
-in-room liquor dispensers
-24 hour room service & personal butler
-complimentary round trip transportation to and from the airport to the resort
-tipping already included in the price
-daycare for kiddos
It’s easy to get used to sunny and 75 without worrying about carrying around cash.
Checking back into reality after staying at an AI, not so much.
