When a resort says it is all-inclusive does that mean ANYONE who pays to stay in the resort (no matter what kind of room they book) has the all-inclusive?

I was just looking at Villa Del Palmar Flamingos Beach Resort and Spa and it says it is all-inclusive but I just wanetd to check what the rooms will look like an dthey have like 15 choices and some say they're all-inclusive and some don't say anything about it.. so I am confused...

1. Re: All-Inclusive???

From what I understand this resort offer all inclusive and a european plan. I think the eurpoean plan includes breakfast only. There will probably be different colored wrist bands. The difference in prices will depend on rooms. Some have ocean views and be a bit more upscale. The lower priced options will probably be on the lower floors with no view. As well, the european plans will be cheaper. Check out the resort website, I'm sure they have one, you should be able to decide if you want to pay the extra for a better ??? room. I myself go for the cheaper option as we really don't spend that much time in the room. As for all inclusive, we are drinkers and like to sit by the pool so all inclusive works well for us. Do go out and experience PV outside of the resort, it is amazing.

We stay at the Dreams PV and you have all- inclusive no matter which room you stay in.

We have also stayed at the Rio resorts and you get AI in any room. We prefer the Dreams. Not as fancy as the Rio Palace or Rio Hotel but is the type of place we prefer.

Dreams and Riu hotels are A/I ONLY whereas Villa del Palmar can be reserved European Plan (Room Only) or All Inclusive, and as well, they have many Time Share rooms as well.

Some European Plans at some hotels will offer breakfast and some will not. It all depends on the hotel and/or special offers/promotions.

The only way you will have All Inclusive at the Villa del Palmar is if you reserve an All Inclusive package.

What website are you looking at?
