What is the definition of an all inclusive? Typically, it means that you have your food and beverages, even alcohol included for one package price. Some resorts go a bit further and include water sports while others include nightly entertainment. The most inclusive of them all will include everything listed above and then including taxes. And then there's SANDALS & BEACHES!
Sandals & Beaches are the most inclusive in the all inclusive arena offering MORE inclusions than any resort on the PLANET! Not only do they offer MORE, but the MORE that they offer are high quality, luxury inclusions. In what ways? I'm so glad you asked!
The accommodations are larger offering Serta sleeper beds and the most delicious pillows you ever set your head on. The luxurious in room toiletries, branded Red Lane Spa, and the soft robes and slippers go hand in hand like chocolate and Blue Mountain coffee, which you will also find in your room and brewed throughout the resort.
With as many as 19 restaurants to chose from per resort, the only question will be, "what's for dinner?". The Signature Discovery Dining program allows you to dine around the world quite literally. Sandals employs an Executive Chef who is native for that cuisine. For example, if you are craving true Thai food, rest assured, Apple straight from Thailand, will have trained the cooks how to prepare authentic entrees and all at no additional charge. My personal favorite is Febrezio, Executive Chef at Marios in La Toc. Not only is he a handsome young gent from Italy, he's a heck of a chef as well!
They say at Sandals, "Jimmy, Johnny, Jack and all their friends are here!" Wine lover? Beringer flows 24/7. Prefer the nonalcoholic approach? Here you will find the freshest smoothies, juices and even a self serve unlimited ice cream station. My favorite part about Sandals & Beaches is the simple fact that they all are located in regions where water is at it's purist right from the tap! Prefer a bottle, no worries, it's all included.
4. Water sports
Did you know that some resorts offer water sports such as SCUBA diving but actually charge for it? Others even charge a fee to rescue you! The highly trained staff not only will show you how to use the equipment properly, they will also keep an eye on you to be sure you are fully enjoying yourself and won't need to be rescued. As far as SCUBA diving goes, they own their own Newton Dive boats, the best in the industry, and offer you up to two dives daily. This isn't only for the big fish either, small fish as young as 8 years old can partake as well. Water slides or lazy rivers more your style? They have those too. Snorkel, paddle board, waterskiing, Hobie Cats and more are also all a part of the all inclusive package price.
I would say one of the biggest feathers in the Sandals & Beaches hat would be their staff. Where else can a staff member put a smile on your face from the gardener to the front desk worker to the management staff. No one esteems themselves higher than the other which is why you will often times see the managers "caught" working other jobs like greeting guests or even refer-erring beach volleyball matches!
