All-Inclusive Resorts Have More Than Just Food and Beverages!

Gonzalo S. - RCI Timeshare Exchange and Vacation ExperiencesMost people think all-inclusive resorts are just swimming pools, tennis courts and food…but the “all-inclusiveness” doesn’t stop there! My job is to work closely with our affiliated timeshare resorts in Mexico and I have been onsite to personally check out what they have to offer, especially the all-inclusive ones.

We all know the main reason all-inclusive resorts are so popular is because of food and drinks, and the amount of them! But did you know that most resorts offer a lot of different dining options? There are many with 24-hour buffet style restaurants with a kids' buffet area, smaller restaurants that cater to sit-down dinners, and fine a-la-carte dining restaurants. So no matter what your taste buds like, you will find something to enjoy!

An abundance of activities is another plus to an all-inclusive resort. They usually have every water sport under the sun, and some may even be free of charge. Some resorts also include golf, tours and even spa discounts on selected treatments. No need to worry about the cost, you can let yourself have fun!

For children, the opportunities are even greater. All-inclusive resorts that cater to families have many options to keep your child entertained and happy. They may have a separate pool just for playing and splashing, water slides, and large gaming centers. Many all-inclusive resorts also offer classes like arts and crafts, acting, and even puppetry. Some all-inclusive resorts even have nannies available!

We worked with Dan the RCI Guy to create a video on RCI TV which tells you all about all-inclusive resorts. You should take a look; it’s very informative and a lot of fun!

Great information above for RCI Subscribing Members! A few more things about all-inclusive resorts to add: at many of these resorts, shows and nighttime entertainment, as well as 24-hour room service are also included. Also, many of the à la carte fine dining restaurants usually have excellent wine selections…just remember that some restaurants need reservations ahead of time!

How do we calculate total cost for 4 people if we want to invite another couple to join us at an AI resort? Do we simply multiply a fixed per-person rate by 4?

Hi Marc Janes, good question. Each all-inclusive resort is going to have different rules on additional fees for more than two people. To find all-inclusive information, go to, click on the "Resort Directory" tab, and enter a specific resort ID # in the "Quick Resort ID Search" box on the right. Next click on the "All-inclusive" link listed under Resort Information. When you click on this link, you'll find complete details about the resort's all-inclusive program.
