How to Make the Most of Your All-Inclusive Resort

3. Treat yourself to room service

Imagine waking up in your resort, taking in the wonderful view out of the window, and thinking to yourself that you’d love to have breakfast on the balcony. As it so happens, room service is another luxury of all-inclusive resorts, and you’re more than welcome to have your croissant and orange juice in your room.

But what if you’re watching TV and don’t feel like going down to the restaurant for a steak dinner? No worries, just have it sent to your room! Maybe you went clubbing, got back starving, and can only think about fries and ice cream? Please indulge yourself.

4. Check if you can bundle the flight and hotel together

If you’re going on a trip with your family and have already decided on the country, resort, and time of the year, you should research a bit more and see if you can score some great discounts. Sometimes you might find better deals if you book your stay with travel agents than going straight to the resort’s website. Flight and accommodation combos are not uncommon and tend to come out cheaper than buying them individually.

5. Take food from the buffet for the day

Before you carry on reading any further, it’s essential that you find out if your resort is OK with their guests taking food from the buffet or arranging food to-go. Some have no problem with it, but others require that all the food should be consumed within the resort’s premises.

Taking some food with you for the day can be a great way to save some extra cash and stop worrying about finding a place to eat. So, if you know you’re spending the entire day at the beach, take a picnic with you and enjoy yourself. But just remember to take items that don’t need refrigeration for a few hours to avoid food poisoning.
