Be aware of what exactly is covered in your all-inclusive plan as some places do not offer everything one might expect. Higher-end amenities such as spa services often incur an additional charge.

The Benifits of a Resort

People like all-inclusive resorts for several reasons, but the most common is the billing procedure. Guests receive one simple bill up-front for nearly everything they could want to eat, drink or do during their stay. Most all-inclusives in Jamaica are priced with several restaurant options, top-shelf liquors, and sports already included. Although you may have to sign a check once or twice, say, after a massage or a dinner at an on-site upscale restaurant, in general you can spend your vacation not worrying about how much you're paying for everything. Another perk is being able to leave important documents, such as your bank and credit cards and IDs, hidden in the safety deposit box or safe in your room.

For some, this freedom from budgetary concerns helps coax relaxation. After all, tropical vacationers are often interested in leaving their cares and worries back home, and budgeting for a trip can be stressful. Another relaxing thought is that all-inclusives employ security guards to keep the resort safe and worry-free.

Many resorts also offer other extras to keep their visitors happy. All-inclusives in Jamaica generally provide airport transfers as part of the package, which can save some travelers a hefty sum just in bus or cab fare. They also offer plenty of pre-planned activites and on-site nightlife. So, as a rule, all-inclusives can not only be safe but also more affordable than staying at "just" a hotel.

The Negatives of a Resort

Travelers who savor independence more than airtight security and group activities may feel that all-inclusive resorts take some of the fun and flavor out of international travel. Visitors do not generally feel encouraged to leave the grounds and explore Jamaica or spend their travel budget on local foods, activities and merchandise when staying at an all-inclusive resort.

All-inclusives are notorious for not offering great examples of local Jamaican culture to their guests. Plain and simple, guests will need to venture out on their own to taste local flavor and experience what truly makes Jamaica unique, its people. This kind of exploring is especially appreciated by local restaurateurs, who often feel that all-inclusives inhibit their business. Many intrepid travelers believe that elaborate resort security makes too much of the dangers outside the complexes.

Several Jamaican all-inclusives favor couples over singles and adults over children, making family travel to all-inclusive resorts on the island less than ideal. Though family-oriented all-inclusives are gaining in popularity, they still haven't taken over the top spot from adults-only clubs. Research a few of the popular chain resorts, and you'll find plenty of family-friendly programming to choose from.

Visitors traveling to all-inclusive resorts in Jamaica will need to book their trips ahead of time, especially in the winter high season. Many popular resorts book up to a year in advance for popular holidays such as Christmas and New Years.
