The hardest part about booking your all-inclusive vacation is deciding on which resort to choose. It’s all the sunshine and beaches from there. With the help of an expert, you can rest after assuring that someone has taken the time to do the research for you. Here are some things to think about before taking the swoop with your credit card:
Food sometimes gets a bad reputation at resorts – but that shouldn’t be the case. There’s nothing worse than unsanitary kitchens, lack-luster menus, watery drinks and a small selection of fresh foods, when everything else is paradise. For those who are concerned with food quality and selection, some chains like Iberostar Hotels and Resorts and Karisma Hotels and Resorts pride themselves on offering outstanding food.
Some things you may want to ask yourself is:
- Do I really need to make reservations at the a la carte restaurants? Some hotels and restaurants require them and some just don’t.
- Is there a limit to the number of a la carte restaurants I can visit in just a week? Is there a specific time or a best time to reserve a la carte restaurant because of limited space (for example, each morning or upon arrival for the entire week)?
- Is there a dress code for the visitors? Men may need to bring long pants, a collared shirt, and closed-toe shoes for an elegant dining.
- Is there really any extra fees at the a la carte restaurants? Sometimes there will be a gourmet restaurant at an extra charge, or premium menu items such as lobster or steak that can cost extra.
- Are there any premium liquors and wines available for purchase?
- Are the mini bar items free of cost?
- Are room services free too?
Depending on your preferences, this could help you budget for extra spending money on the resort.
The level of service provided at a resort can make or break its reputation. The difference between a 3-star resort and 5-star resort is in large part, the difference between attentive, welcoming staff and disassociated by any means staff. A service-oriented resort can actually compensate for other sub-par aspects of the property, whereas a resort with inferior service and cause a 5-star resort ground-wise to lose points.
Good service is totally prompt, attentive, efficient, and kind. Employees in such resorts know guests by name, know their drink orders, accommodate special requests, and offer services like concierge and pool and beach butler service. It’s important to have a sufficient staff-to-guest ratio to ensure exceptional service for customers. Bad service occurs when there are long line ups, negative attitudes, unaccommodating staff, overbooking rooms, slow service for drinks, and other wait times that cause inconvenience.
