All inclusive resorts ... Just wondering

If a resort is AI why charges for coffees? How much do specialty coffees cost?

Depends on the AI I guess.

I've never been charged extra at the resorts we've stayed at in Riviera Maya (RPDC and VIM).

We have not either for 19 trip to the area. Charges that are more typical are for services (spa, laundry, etc). Phone calls or "upgrades" for some of the more expensive cuts of steak, or lobster. Some AI's charge for room service - some do not.

I've never been to that resort. Have been to Palladium, VIM and all Secrets. Never been charged extra for coffee.

I've never been charged for coffee. That sounds really odd.....

We have never been charged either..but have also never stayed at the Allegra. I either would not order any, or would book with a different resort. I dislike being nickel and dimed. We stay at 4 star resorts, and never have to pay.

Charging for coffee? That's pretty desperate. I'd be looking elsewhere.

If I recall, the Allegra is what, about a 3 1\2 star resort?? (Depending on which website you look at) That could be the kicker right there. Never stayed at less than a 4 1\2 star myself, and never paid for coffee either.
