Is there such a thing???


I know the AI include food, drinks, room, and sometimes even more. Are there any that just include room and drinks? I'm not sure if I want to be suck eating the same food every day, but I don't want to bay $5-6 bucks for each drink either...thanks!

I've not heard of any of the AI resorts offering just a room/drinks package. There are some really good AI places out there. We choose places where there are more a la carte restaurants because, for us, buffets get old quickly and generally the a la carte menu varies daily. Just a personal preference.

While there may not be such a thing, there are plenty of AI's that are only slightly more (if not less) then some of the room only hotels. These may be worthwile for you for drinks alone (remember, non-AI's charge for water and soft drinks as well as alcohol). If it costs $20 more pp/nt for an AI - that may only be 2 drinks at some non-AI's ($12 ea for a frozen drink at the JW Marriott).

You can still leave the resort for meals same as a non-AI, and always have that extra option of the included hotel buffet if you want to grab a quick bite.

We will go to an AI that is 3 stars and pay less for the AI. We save so much money, we don't care if we spend money to go out to eat a few times. We are going to Riu Caribe - nice beach, good pool but the food is probably mediocre at best but we paid $5115 for 5 people and 2 rooms for a week!

You are already getting a very good deal at Riu Caribe. The food is very convenient to have, even if you don't eat there every single night.
