Most common mistakes to make when visiting an all-inclusive resorts
Many activities you can do when staying in an all-inclusive resorts such as cocktail making, dancing lesson, beach volley, morning yoga, and fitness center. Variety of entertainment is also provided including live music, karaoke, comedian shows, fire shows, kid’s club, etc. To make your vacation experience in an all-inclusive resort go smoothly, here are some common mistakes to avoid:
Expecting everything to be included in one fee
Even though an all-inclusive resort include so many things, not everything is included in one fee. What you pay for one fee may only include foods and entertainment facilities. However, the resorts will charge you from other things such as spa treatment, a round of golf, premium drinks, or special restaurant dishes. Always keep in mind that the specific inclusions at different resort vary widely. It is best to do your research in advance about the inclusions on the resort’s official website.
Accepting everything offered to you
As mentioned earlier that not everything is included in one fee. Each resort may offer you various ‘extra’ or ‘special’ things. For example, you may be offered or asked to buy into a timeshare or vacation club. Keep in mind that you have to spend extra money to accept it. Therefore, make sure to not hesitate to say ‘no’ to any kind of offerings you don’t really want. Some of them may offer or ask you in more aggressive manner but don’t be afraid to be firm and say ‘no, thank you’.
Staying in your room throughout the duration of vacation
There are many places you can explore and many freebies to enjoy during your vacation at an all-inclusive resort. Hence, make the most of it by exploring them all. You can find a favorite spot to lounge, a great breakfast restaurant, best spot to relax on the beach, etc. Spend your time there how you like it best. You may already know what you like and what kind of vacation you prefer. However, travelling offers more opportunities for you to try new things and it is highly encouraged to explore them.
Taking too many things with you
Keep in mind that you don’t really need to wear different bathing suit every day on vacation. Hence, it is enough to bring few clothes that you will really wear. And it is okay to re-wear, really. Your days will be spent mostly at pool or beach anyway. If you plan on a classy dinner, you can confirm the dress code in advance so you know what to pack.
