All Inclusives

Hey all,

I saw a news article saying Marriott was finally adding All Inclusive to their resort portfolio.

Did they never have them before?

For example the locations in Cancun and such - are these all non-inclusive?

I was hoping to take the family for an all inclusive somewhere on points next year - does that not exist...?

The only all inclusive that Iím aware of (and there is probably more) is The Westin Golf Resort & Spa, Playa Conchal in Costa Rica and the Al Maha outside of Dubai. There is also probably some in Sharm in Egypt.

The Renaissance in Aruba also has all inclusive options for paid stays, for at least a year.

They have a few hotels with paid all inclusive options but the base room does not come with all inclusive. The new hotels will be all inclusive for everyone.

Westin Cozumel also sometimes offers all inclusive rate packages.

All inclusive rate packages are different from all inclusive resorts. All inclusive resorts are all inclusive (duh!) while all inclusive packages includes three meals and limited drinks only. Packages are often limited to specific restaurants or specific menu items.

In a sense, the club lounge surcharge fees at some RCs are similar to all inclusive packages.

Hmmm I think I'm confused.

3 years ago my company stayed at the JW Marriott in Cancun for a work session - it was great, and all inclusive - we walked into restaurants, sat down and ordered (there were some restaurants that were pay per eat but we were clearly told which they were).

I look online and can see I can reserve this for category 6 level of points.

Does that mean it gets me just a room?

Is there a mix of people - 50% of the people are on all inclusive plan and 50% of the people are pay for all meal plan...?

You company must have paid an all inclusive package add on. Your points redemption will only get you a room. You can inquire with the hotel to see what the add on is.
