28 All-inclusive Resort Travel Tips For Married Couples-easeljs

Vacationing at an all-inclusive resort is the equivalent of a cruise on land. It is by far my favorite way to vacation as a married couple. No more quarreling with your spouse over how much to spend on dinner, trying to save money by skipping meals or choosing boredom because it costs too much to pay for activities or entertainment. These travel tips come from my experience traveling to resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean. What is an all-inclusive resort? The most widely accepted definition of an "all-inclusive resort is when all your meals, snacks, drinks and non-motorized sports are included with your vacation package. Even though this is what most all inclusive resorts include make sure what your all-inclusive resort vacation includes. Does it include air fare, transfers, resort stay, tips, food, drinks, sports, activities, and entertainment? Is there free internet access, a gym, more than one swimming pool, several restaurants to choose from, adult’s only rules, and programs for children. With advanced planning these 28 all-inclusive resort tips will make your trip to an all-inclusive resort more enjoyable, keep your marriage in tact, you’ll have more fun, and get the most out of your trip. 1. Right after checking into the resort your next stop should be to make reservations for the specialty restaurants as they fill up almost immediately. Find out how many nights you are allowed to book a specialty restaurant. They are usually limited to 1 restaurant choice for a 3 night stay, 2 for a 5 night stay and 3 for a 7 night stay. 2. If you have children with you check in with the kids "club" or "camp" and get the kids signed up and get a copy of the schedule. 3. Review the resort map and familiarize yourself with the layout. 4. Look at the list of activities and games and make a note when and where the ones that you are interested are taking place. Go early and sign up if required. Most sporting activities need to be signed up for. Reservations for using the canoes, sail boats, snorkeling equipment, etc. fill up quickly. 5. Take Walkie Talkies with you so that you can find each other easily if you separate or want to do separate activities. 6. Take a watch so you know what time it is. Co-ordinate your activities so that you can meet up after separate activities or get to your spouse’s activity in time to cheer for them 7. Walk through the buffet and see all the food choices before you start to get your food. You will eat less and eat the things that are most to your liking. 8. Reserve your chair on the beach early in the day. Go to the outer edges to find seats when they all appear to be taken. 9. Drinks are included. Enjoy but not so much that you are sick or lose control. 10. Bring your own snorkels & fins if you enjoy the sport. Theirs may not fit well and most have a time limit on usage. 11. Pack nice clothes for dressing up for dinner or the disco at night. 12. Decide on tours before you arrive at the resort so that you get to do everything you want. Remember there is a lot to do at the resort. You may not want to leave. 13. Bring books, puzzles, magazines, handwork, etc to do while waiting for shows to start, sitting at the beach, or sitting in the airport. 14. Bring a camera in a bag to keep the sand out. 15. Bring a T-shirt to wear when snorkeling or walking on the beach to keep your shoulders from getting burnt. 16. Remember you may be sunburned before you see or feel the burn. Time yourself at the beginning of the trip to see how easily you burn in a new place. 17. Bring an umbrella for the occasional downpour and a jacket for cool evenings. 18. Take Tylenol, cold medicine, Pepto Bismol, some sunscreen and bug spray; remember the airline size rules. Bring and take your medications. 19. Bring a pair of ear plugs. Some of the show, the disco and even a neighboring room may be a little loud. 20. If you have problems don’t be afraid to inform the front desk or if that doesn’t do the trick contact your booking company representative and they will aid you in fixing the problem. 21. Bring a beach bag to carry your towel, books, suntan lotion, etc to the beach. 22. Haggle with the salesmen and store personnel when shopping for souvenirs. They expect it here and if you don’t bargain you will over pay. Even the tour companies will make a deal. 23. When you land at the airport don’t let the timeshare people stop you on the way through the airport. Continue past hem out the exit of the airport. That is where your transfer or ground transportation is located. They will be waiting out there with your name on a sign. 24. Bring some dollar bills for tipping tour guides and buying small items. No tipping necessary at the all inclusive resort. 25. Don’t be shocked by the topless women on the beach or around the pool. If you are offended by this or worried about your children encountering it book into a resort that has specific areas so that you can avoid it. 26. If the resort is large they will usually have some sort of transportation to shuttle you around the resort. If it is a resort that has several hotels check and see if you are allowed to use the amenities at the other sister resort hotels as well as you own. 27. Most resorts have computers that are connected to the internet but most charge a separate fee for using the internet. Some of the resorts will have wireless internet. 28. Relax and Enjoy!
