Let no-one be fooled: all-inclusive triumphs over other board basis’ in hotels because it is the best for money and comfort. This, in the last few years, has made it possible to add more advantages to all-inclusive; a great reason for holidaymakers to be able to book a cheap holiday to Spain; a country with many mature tourist destinations.
Mature tourist destinations like Mallorca, the Canary Islands, the Levante or Southern Spain know all too well that the most in-demand holidays are those with all-inclusive board basis primarily because it means a stress-free holiday. Best known over the years for offering stays of rest and relaxation without having to worry about even the most basic things, all-inclusive, far from disappearing as was feared a few years ago, is now back on top, bigger and better than ever. And with all the advantages it has to offer, no wonder it’s so popular in Spain and other holiday locations.
You’ll see few remaining all-inclusive hotels in the 21st century built during the 50’s when there was a boom in the tourism industry making Spain the front runner of Europe as a holiday destination. Although you’ll still find all-inclusive hotels from this era, the ones at present continue to develop the two biggest advantages of going all-inclusive (comfort and competitive prices) as well as adding new values like more exclusive services to better accommodate the public’s specific needs, all whilst not excluding mass tourism.
All-inclusive allows you to pay for your holiday when you book it, choosing the most luxurious rooms at the best prices, with more varied services and access to most facilities in the hotel. Away from all-inclusive, the more innovative areas or those that offer different types of facilities like spa and hydrotherapy centres in their own or sister hotel, gourmet restaurants, terraces with chill out zones accompanied with drinks and cocktails will be charged as extras.
However, the new All-Inclusive Plus and Premium packages include the best selective services with certain limited uses offering guests the option to try before they buy and if they enjoy themselves, they can easily pay the additional cost. One of the best benefits is the day-to-day gastronomy: the best quality, as much in their distinguished restaurants as in their buffets; drinks; desserts; snacks;
Also you can now book suites when you choose all-inclusive, opting for a luxury experience and not having to worry, knowing that everything has already been paid for back home and all that’s needed is for you to go to the hotel and enjoy yourself without worrying about any outstanding payments.
This wide variety is why all-inclusive is the most sought out board basis, especially for those travelling as a family as they are the ones who are in most need of full and versatiles packages so that every member of family, from the children to the grandparents can take maximum advantage of their holiday, from the hotel to its surroundings.
It’s less common for couples who go on city breaks to opt for all-inclusive as these types of trips are normally more for spending time outside of the hotel and so they would not benefit from lunch and dinner included. Certainly, there are times when breakfast included in the cost of the accommodation is reason to book instead of those not offering this option but it’s also more flexible and less complete than all-inclusive, meaning that, in the end, your spending will be all over the place.
All-inclusive has never received such luxury status as it has now, for some hotels. This is because some all-inclusive hotels, like IBEROSTAR Anthelia (south of Tenerife) are an authentic paradise for serenity and fulfilment. Other more modest hotels of the same chain (and one of the main ones in Spain that first established this form of all-inclusive) are, for example, that of Fuerteventura Palace, in Playa Jandía,. With the whole hotel being an all-inclusive hotel in Fuerteventura, all of its zones are designed for you to enjoy a truly relaxing high-quality experience at the price of a 4-star hotel.
The south of Tenerife is where you’ll find all-inclusive of the highest quality. All-inclusive hotels in Costa Adeje are a unique sample of variety and attention, making this part of the island a real sun and beach paradise. Apart from the climate allowing them to remain open all year round, they are making fast improvements to the care taken to their product and its facilities, as well as making every experience personal to their guest.
Mallorca is another example that we can’t forget to mention when it comes to all-inclusive holidays. Although the island has always been tied to mass tourism of a certain quality, this declined slightly over the past few years but now has come back bigger and better than ever, offering state-of-the-art fully-facilitated hotels and better experiences in and out of the hotel. Some interesting examples can be seen in the north of Mallorca, in the hotel zone of Playa de Muro or in the all-inclusive hotels in Cala Ratjada, where, other than the enjoying the facilities of the hotel, you can also appreciate a charming fishing village full of tradition and life.
