It’s hard to know what to expect after booking an All-Inclusive vacation.
What will the beach be like? What about the food? What will you do all day? What about at night? Will the resort be over-crowded?
We get it. But, thankfully for you, we’re here to clear up the confusion.
Expectations vs. Reality at All-Inclusive Resorts:
Expectation: the beaches will feel dull, commercialized and crowded.
Reality: the beaches are lush, well-maintained and isolated.
Expectation: there will only be buffets.
Reality: there will be a slew of different restaurants, cafes and bars to choose from, with food made to order.
Expectation: it’ll be boring.
Reality: from the moment you arrive you’ll have access to the pool, the beach, water sports and excursion planning — it’s anything but boring.
Expectation: once the sun goes down, there won’t be anything to do.
Reality: most resorts offer a variety of nighttime actives like shows, dance clubs and beach hang outs.
Expectation: if it rains, your trip will be ruined.
Reality: if it rains, the resort has, and will provide more indoor activities.
Expectation: you’re going to get bored of the fruity drinks.
Reality: that’s impossible.
Expectation: the resort’s going to be overcrowded and loud.
Reality: you’ll have an abundance of peace and quiet.
