Your Two Cents: Are You a Fan of All-Inclusive Resorts?

Couples Retreat opens this weekend, and though the plot looks silly, I can't help but be romanticized by the deep blue water and tropical resort featured in the trailer. Piña coladas? Palm trees? Snorkeling? Sign me up!

Forging the usual holiday festivities and meeting family and friends at all-inclusive resorts is a growing trend for some. Understandably, others grimace at the idea of planned menus and activities. What's your take?

I go to Barbados once a year to an all-inclusive resort. Great cocktails and right on the beach! Once you know the bus routes it's easy to go around the island, but I make sure to get my money's worth in rum punch at the resort :)

Most all inclusive vacations are great, need to do your research to find one that fits your lifestyle but I would do it again, especially with family because everyone can do their own thing.

Love All-Inclusive package because it makes your vacation so easy. I have been to a few in D.R.,Mexico, and Jamaica and all were great. You just need to do a little research on the resort before you make your pick.

I'm not a huge fan of the all-inclusive package... I feel like you only experience the "tourist" version of the culture. The one time that I really enjoyed the all-inclusive package was when I visited Rapa Nui--because the island is so small, there really aren't a lot of places around to just walk around and find, so the all-inclusive package was great, and it came with private guides so we could do whatever we wanted.

Drinks are included in the price. My husband and I enjoy cocktails when we travel, and having drinks included saves us a bundle!
