All inclusive versus non all inclusive vacations. Which is the better deal?

All inclusive versus non all inclusive vacations

Which is the better deal?


Well folks, the Today Show did an experiment to solve the great debate – All inclusive versus non all inclusive vacations. Which is the better deal?

Two people stayed at the same resort. Both had the same experiences. One took the all inclusive route. The other took the pay as you go option.

Which option do you think was the better deal?

Hold on to your hats, ladies and gentlemen, we have an answer!



So were you surprised by the results?

Many people like the all-inclusive concept because it is easy. You pay one price and that covers your stay. That’s what you expect anyway.

The big drawback with that concept is that it is sort of a one size fits all experience unless you are staying in one of the premium resort properties or in a premium suite in a lower level property where you have more options included.

Most all inclusives are designed around a pricing structure where the property has to feed as many people as possible for the least amount of money. Unless you are at a high-end property, that model cannot possibly translate into high-quality food or products.

If your plan is just to lounge around the resort without doing too much, other than the pool and the beach, eat as much as you can at every meal and drink as much of whatever drinks are flowing, then the all inclusive option might work for you.

If you want to go out and see the sights but end up missing meals as a result, you will probably feel short-changed.

If you want a vacation that’s a little or a lot more personalized, with more upscale dining and amenities, you might want to consider other options.

One thing we have learned about Mais Oui guests is that they want experiences. They want to experience the culture and to see the sights. They expect a nice place. The typical hotel style all inclusive designed around excesses wouldn’t work.

So what do we do? We offer an all inclusive option with a twist … See what we offer instead of the traditional all-inclusive experience that our guests just love!

‘Til next time.

Think and dream Jamaica!
