26 Secrets for Doing All-Inclusives Like a Pro

Sometimes all-inclusive resorts have more than you thought included, and it’s up to you to know how to take advantage of it. You’ve already paid for the trip, so it’s no longer the resort’s responsibility to make sure you know everything they have to offer. These 26 secrets will help ensure you’re getting the most bang for your buck:

1. Make Friends With the Bartenders

When the alcohol is free, the only thing getting in the way of your mid-morning margarita is the long lineup of guests ahead of you. Making friends with the bartenders ahead of time will ensure that you’re not wasting your time in line while your friends laugh it up on the beach.

2. Be Nice to Your Housekeepers

Meaning – tip them! This person is going to be spending the week cleaning up your messes and making sure your room is immaculate upon your return each day. Letting them know you appreciate their hard work on day one will ensure you receive the best treatment throughout the week. You may even get a towel animal out of it, and who doesn’t want a towel animal (maybe it will be a monkey!)

3. Wake Up Early

You’re on vacation and you don’t want to wake up early, but you do want the best spot on the beach. All you need to do is a quick zombie shuffle from your bed to the beach to make sure you have the best seat in the sun all day long. You’ll thank yourself later when you have that slightly deeper tan from the extra time outside.
