All-Inclusive vs. Non-All-Inclusive Vacations

/ Jamaica Travel Tips

“Travelling is the only thing that you buy that makes you richer,” and when it comes to choosing between an all-inclusive and a traditional vacation, you really do get what you pay for!

Although all-inclusive packages sound like the ultimate deal, you may be missing out on some of the most important aspects of travelling. What route should you take? Here are some factors to consider when planning your next vacation:



While all-inclusive resorts are usually packed with tourists, smaller traditional hotels offer a much more intimate setting, allowing you to relax and unwind to the fullest. The personalized experience and touch provided to guests is often lost at all-inclusive resorts.

Food for Thought:

Although all-you-can-eat buffets are preferred by some, keep in mind that you will be eating the same (usually standard) food for your entire stay. The quality of the food varies depending on the resort, and the excessiveness of food prepared often leads to an abundance of waste.

Never get bored of having the same meal twice by choosing a resort that is immersed in the destination. At Hotel Mockingbird Hill, experience variety and locally inspired cuisine made with fresh ingredients reflected in our menu that changes daily. These resorts will know the best places in town to try local favorites!


All-inclusive resorts are designed so you don’t have to leave the property, but what fun is that? Exploring the destination is the only way to absorb the culture and get the most out of your travels. This is what makes for a truly memorable and unique experience. Chat with locals, see nature and get to know the cultural heritage.
