All Inclusives

So searching, a ton. Does Marriott allow us to use points at ANY all inclusive properties?

Yes, but with so few all inclusive, none of them that great, I don't think I would bother.

Don't some/all charge a surcharge for all-inclusive? So the points only get you the room?

No, the points also get you the all-inclusive for up to two adults. For more than two adults (adults or children), there is a surcharge and the surcharge can vary based on the age of the children. The reservation form for all-inclusive allows you to indicate the age of each child.

I queried Marriott Resort & Spa, Hurghada (Egypt) and was told a redemption would get us room-only. All-inclusive required paying a surcharge for each guest. Any examples of hotels that do include 2 adults all-inclusive as part of the points price?

Unless I'm looking at the wrong hotel, the Hurghada Marriott isn't an all-inclusive hotel. It does look like for most room types, one can "upgrade" the base rate to have a more "all-inclusive" option, but that would match telling you there would be an up-charge to an award for an all-inclusive stay.

Al Maha resort I believe is all inclusive (in terms of food and I think drinks)...

Oh I forgot about Al Maha. That's the best all inclusive for Marriott.

Al Maha is food and activities. Alcohol is not included (apart from the odd treat).

Westin Playa Conchal Resort, Costa Rica is all-inclusive including alcohol. Points cover everything.

Exactly. I'm pretty sure that's what I was offered.

So it looks like there aren't many options - only 2 mentioned so far!
