I hear it all the time. “Don’t go with an all inclusive, the food is so boring.”
“All inclusive only serves watered-down drinks.”
or my favorite:
“All inclusives are just so un-imaginative.”
Friends, I couldn’t disagree more with these opinions. Maybe you are looking at the wrong all inclusive resorts?
When traveling to a relaxing, sunny destination, we are ready to do one thing – RELAX. So when it comes to making plans, I do not want to have to even think about it, much less think about how much everything is costing me. And that is one of the many reasons why I prefer to pay for the trip upfront – so I can relax and enjoy the trip.
Many resorts are offering such unique and personal all inclusive packages as an add on to their resort stays, making the vacation anything but boring, watered-down & unimaginative.
I recently spent a few days at a resort in Mexico and enjoyed their Grand Gourmet package, which included 3 meals & snacks, drinks, and a variety of activities and it was spectacular. Many resorts are hiring creative and bold chefs who create amazing menus. Gone are the long buffet lines. They are being replaced with smaller, intimate restaurants that allow for a fantastic dining experience.
As for watered-down drinks, while I’m not behind the bar, I do know that many resorts offer bottle service in your rooms and top-shelf liquor at the bars. When your at a tropical resort, half the fun is trying all the crazy drinks by the pool or beach.
We found the creative activities, such as beach yoga or pottery painting gave us an excuse to try something new. And if you are traveling with children, many resorts offer free childcare with a staff dedicated to hosting fun games & activities for kids. Most kids have more fun “playing” in the resort club than they do hanging out by the pool with their parents.
Whether you are traveling with your family or with adults, an all-inclusive resort takes your vacation to the next level. Recently, Hyatt opened 2 resorts in Mexico that offers a new type of All Inclusive vacation – Hyatt Ziva for everyone and Hyatt Zilara for adults. And they are offering you a chance to win a stay at one of these luxurious new resorts.
