To go All Inclusive or Not All Inclusive?

Recommended Posts

hmm...i'm currently waiting for Estancia to quote me on their All Inclusive. Originally I was looking at Dreams PV, but turns out they're already booked for the date I want, so I am going to try Dreams Villamagna. I would check out the RIU properties but they do not perform ceremonies on sundays - not even symbolic...

I think all inclusive is the way to go. Not only is it easier for the bride it is also so much easier for your guests. I have vacationed to Mexico both ways and I will only go the AI route now. It is so nice to be able to put away your wallet when you get there. You and your guests will be so much more relaxed knowing that everything is taken care of.


Just make sure you make it very clear to your guests that the resort you have chosen is AI so they don't get sticker shock. I am not sure of your friends and family, but mine would easily spend $150 per couple per day in food and alcohol. This makes AI a good deal after you account for those costs.

One other thing to consider is the type of alcohol included in the AI. Some resorts like the Dreams and Riu Palace Vallarta have top shelf alcohol included. Others just have domestic beer and alcohol. Depending on what your guests like to drink it may be worth a little bit of extra money to have better beverages.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
