All-Inclusive with Kids: 5 Things You Should Look for in the Resort

All-inclusive vacations are truly a God set for families with kids due to their convenience. Based on my experience, here are five things you should look for in the resort when you decide to do all-inclusive with kids.

Room Service

Not all resorts include room service as part of the all-inclusive plan. We realized that while doing all-inclusive with kids, it was easier to eat a lot of meals in the room because we could put the kids down for a nap right away or sometimes we enjoyed a room service dinner on the room balcony after putting the kids to bed. Some resorts would require you to pay for these since they are out of the all-inclusive plan, so make sure you read the fine print!

Cabanas

Cabanas not just provide shade, but you can draw the curtains for privacy. This helps if you’re nursing or want to give baby a nap without having to go back to the room! So make sure the resort you pick has cabanas available for use!

Kids Club

Many resorts have kids clubs that entertain the kids while the parents can relax a bit! Most start from age 4, so do check if your kids are eligible.

Location

Make sure your resort isn’t too far away from the airport since kids can get super cranky in the shuttle after a long flight. We also realized travelling with a baby that it can super expensive to buy diapers from the resort shop if you run out, so a market close by helps!

Food

If you have a picky eater make sure you read reviews and check what food is offered at the resort. Check restaurant and cafe timings on the resort, because you never know when a child might get hungry!
