The all inclusive concept was popularized in 1950 with Club Med and has grown to include hundreds of options with many different hotel brands to date. Since there is no industry standard on what an all inclusive should include, they are not all made equal. At the core base, an all-inclusive hotel should include 3 meals, beverages and snacks. However depending on the specific property, the following may or may not be included in the all-inclusive rate. Alcohol is typically included however some may charge for premium or imported brands. Room service is not standard and if offered at all, may cost an additional fee. Food is standard however the quality is not. Some hotels only offer basic food choices while others up charge for gourmet options. Also, food options may not be 24 hrs, requiring guests to eat at certain times or be charged for food ordered outside of designated hours. Some hotels have premium restaurants and lounges that all guests do not have access to unless they book in certain room categories. Additional amenities that may not be included are Wi-Fi, in room mini bars, kids’ clubs/babysitting services and spa treatments. To make sure you’re getting the most of your all inclusive, be sure to research all of the inclusions or you’ll be spending much more than anticipated.
