Planning a trip to an all inclusive resort can be the easiest thing to do if you are thinking of going out during your holidays. It is relaxing, trouble free, and includes all the expenses in a single bill, so you do not have to carry money in your pocket for every service. You can enjoy the luxurious service, a great environment, activities, and food and beverages limitlessly. But with these tips and tricks, you can be extra prepared for your resort trip.
Research the resort in advance
Find out what you are getting for the amount you pay. The services, activities, ambience, nearby locations and food. Read through resort’s website to get to know what makes it special. Also, find out and confirm if you need to do the booking in advance or upon arrival.
When you are in a resort, most of the things for your needs will be provided by their service. So you do not need to pack a heavy bag. Just a few cloths, your passport and ID, credit cards, and anything else that is really necessary, like your toothbrush and sunscreen.
First aid kit is always a good idea to pack in any journey even if you are not going to do any risky stunt. Keep bandages, benedryl, painkillers, and sanitizer as basics. If you are allergic to anything, keep your medications.
Bring tip money
In resorts, the service tips will not get added to your bills. If you are generous to tip the staff, keep small currency bills for tipping at bar, restaurant, or cleaning staff. Make sure you have the currency that they accept. Tipping the staff will also help the staff to make some extra money, and in exchange, you will receive the gratitude and benefits.
Bring your own drinking cup
The cups offered by resorts are pretty small to satisfy your thirst in one trip to the bar. If you do not want to take the hassle of walking to and from the bar everytime you need a drink, you can carry your own cup for refills.
Do not over eat or drink
Even though the food and beverages are free, you know your limits. Do not eat and drinking too much to get sick for the rest of your time. Enjoy the food, and keep space for different dishes to try. Also, while drink make sure that you are in control and not disturbing anyone at the bar.
Leave the resort
Even if you have paid for the resort to enjoy your vacation, there can be a lot of things that you can leave unseen if you do not step out of your resort. Keep the resort activites for one time enjoyment and instead of spending the entire time in the pool, go out and explore the beaches.
When you are at the resort, it is your time to leave your other life behind and just enjoy the moment. If you are busy making business deals even during your holidays, you are missing the things around you. This is the moment you will probably never come back for, so when you are at the resort, let your body and mind both be at the resort.
