5 Mistakes to Avoid at an All-Inclusive Resort

An All-Inclusive resort vacation sounds like a dream! White sand beaches. Great service. Delicious food. Everything you could need is at your fingertips. To keep that dream from turning into a nightmare, make sure to avoid these costly mistakes.

While all-inclusive resorts vary widely based on service, food, amenities, and activities, the biggest considerations are location, theme, and guest demographics. It’s important to have a clear picture of what you want and do your research from that lens.

Just because you can eat three pounds of prime rib and a gallon of ice cream doesn’t mean you should. The same goes for trying every specialty drink on the menu. Use moderation in what you eat and drink as you want to both enjoy and remember your vacation.

Get out of your comfort zone! Most all-inclusive resorts are in a specific destination because of the beauty and culture, so plan an excursion to explore the area.

Learning the staff members’ names and a smile will go a long way toward making your vacation more enjoyable. Staff members who feel “seen” often go out of their way to help the people with whom they make a connection. This can be especially helpful if something goes wrong and you need a little extra help.

It’s time to put the phone down and turn the computer off. Remember your motivation for planning your vacation, and be fully present in the moment.

We would be remiss if we didn’t share what we think is the most important mistake to avoid: Skipping Travel Insurance! Did you know your medical insurance doesn’t cover you once you are off American soil? That’s right. You’re not covered in case of a medical emergency. Trust me. Get travel insurance!
