You have probably heard of all-inclusive vacations, but you are not sure what they are all about, and you are not sure if you should consider it for your honeymoon? A true all-inclusive honeymoon is exactly what it sounds like: One flat fee that is going to cover your room, tips, taxes, all meals, unlimited drinks, airport transfers, and often a list of activities, entertainment, and amenities.
Here are the pros and cons of choosing such a honeymoon.
Pros and Cons of Prices
Rates in the all-inclusive cover all the basics, room and maid service, meals, beverages, taxes, tips, on-site activities, entertainment, almost include everything you really need for having a good time so no need to carry money around.
The most luxurious resorts include amenities as the fitness center, private beaches, and amazing pools with lounge chairs, and cabanas around, your own concierge service with personalized details and some of them offer private yacht service, perfect scape for the post-wedding stress.
Some resorts have hidden fees in your fine print; most of them do not include the Wi-Fi so you are forced to actually hang out without posting your daily activities in your social media sites. If you do an international calling, you will probably have to pay for it. If you go to the hotel’s shop for souvenirs, cigarettes, sunscreen, or additional stuff this will be not included in the price you paid originally.
Pros and Cons of Entertainment
The activities are not limited, and they offer yoga, board games, pool, corn hole, tequila tastings, Pilates, beach and pool volleyball, archery and rifle shooting, bicycle tour, water activities as paddle and snorkeling and cooking classes for all of the foodies. A lot of resorts offer dance parties, live concerts, parades, karaoke, movie nights.
The worst thing about the best activities is the price, spa massages, salon treatments, excursions, golf, scuba diving, and deep-sea fishing are additional. Most of the free activities get crowded quickly. So, if you want to join that you have to get there early. Be aware of the fact that the resort staff is very likely to push you to do outside tours or activities that are not included in the main feed.
Pros and Cons of Food and Beverages
Most of the all-inclusive resorts offer every kind of food you can imagine for each meal you need, you can choose from numerous restaurants and even don’t repeat any during your stay. Restaurants are local or international cuisine with healthy options, vegan, veggie, gluten-free, sugar-free, organic, celiac, and more. Room service is included if your plan is to spend your day in your bed.
And you won’t be missing your drinks either, with all of the swim-up bars, beach bars, and lobby bars, a lot of options for keep alcohol flowing freely.
There are a lot of options for meals even the most unthinkable, but that doesn’t mean it always meets your taste requirements, be careful too much food can finalize with a stomachache and ruined your vacations. Some hotels use as “included” the domestic drinks and charge you extra for premium drinks.
