If you are looking for the easiest and most laid back relaxing vacation then why not look at staying in an all inclusive hotel or resort in Barbados.
The benefits of an all inclusive resort are endless and so we have outlined a few of the major advantages.
By the term all inclusive, resorts are referring to the fact that once you have paid for your accommodation then everything else that you may wish to do during your stay at the resort is included in the price.
One of the main attractions of an all inclusive resort is that you do not need to worry about cash throughout your stay and therefore if you are on holiday with your family you won’t have to worry about over spending and sticking to a budget.
The majority of resorts in Barbados are very well equipped and therefore you may enjoy indulging in some sporting activity during your stay. Perhaps you would enjoy using the on site gym or taking part in the aerobic classes and work off some of the excess food and drink that you are bound to consume.
Some of the resorts also have tennis courts, which are flood lit so that you can play in the evenings when the sun isn’t too hot. As the majority of resorts are located on the beach, you can also take advantage of the non-motorized water sports activities, which again would be complimentary. They offer wind surfing, boogie boarding, kayaking and hobie cat sailing.
As standard you can expect at least one swimming pool at your resort but the all inclusive resorts usually have more than one swimming pool as the residents tend not to venture too far from the hotel and therefore you need to all be able to use the facilities comfortably. You can also expect various Jacuzzi’ scattered around the property for your enjoyment and relaxation.
Another great benefit of an all inclusive hotel or resort is that they provide a kids club, with activity coordinators to keep the little ones amused all day while you concentrate on the important job of relaxing.
Finally the biggest benefit of an all inclusive resort is that you don’t have to pay for food and drink for your entire stay, which is a major plus point if you are on holiday with children. They can eat as much or as little as they like and of course they can also eat all of their favorite foods, as there is usually a grill option with hamburgers, hogs and lots of free ice cream!
Most resorts have a choice of restaurants, which vary in cuisine. There is usually one main restaurant with an international menu for breakfast and lunch and then a choice of restaurants for the evening; where you may just feel like a buffet style menu or on some evenings you may fancy dressing up and going for the full a la carte menu.
Usually the free bar covers soft drinks. beers, wines and house spirits and of course no Caribbean holiday would be complete at your all inclusive hotel or resort without cocktails.
