For travelers looking for hotel rooms complete with all the bells and whistles, Barbados' all-inclusive resorts offer more than a day at the beach.

Activities, food, and amenities are all part of the all-for-one price. This makes them a great choice for visitors looking for the ease of participating in pre-planned activities or for travelers who don't want to worry about finding taxis, restaurants, or a clear path to the beaches on their own. Critics of all-inclusives, however, often find the atmosphere sterile and absent of local culture.

One advantage of booking an all-inclusive resort is that travelers can truly relax once they're in Barbados. Everything is included in one price, so many people feel they are free from budgetary constraints, and in many cases all-inclusives do help vacationers keep to their budgets. Having so many things wrapped in one price often helps travelers save money.

The fine print is that many resorts offer different levels of quality and amenities under the title of all-inclusive. It's best to do a little research to see what is included in the resort's fee. Some will include all meals, while others will only include two. Some offer your choice of amenities on and around the hotel grounds, while others may offer some activities for free but charge a small fee for others.

With so many of their needs instantly met, many travelers do not feel encouraged to go out and explore the island of Barbados. Meals out on the town will be cause for spending a little extra money, which may be discouraging to some. Many local merchants also feel that their business is hurt by such resorts.

Still, all-inclusive resorts can offer unparalleled relaxation without the worry of budgeting each day's spending on items like meals and drinks. This can certainly be worth the price for many travelers who feel the best vacation is one spent far from their wallets.
