The traditional All Inclusive Package, as found in the Caribbean, has moved on!
Now everyone has joined the party and you'll find All Inclusive Programmes in hotels across the Med, in North Africa and even on Nile cruises! but not all things are created equal.
We have rated the All Inclusive Programmes that we feature across our website based on the food, drink and facilities on offer within the package and not on either the medhotels or official hotel rating.
Factors such as the location of the property may also be important, since for example a mountain hotel cannot offer free water sports.
Please note that the below categories are only guidelines to what to expect as a minimum standard for each classification of All Inclusive.
The All Inclusive Light programme is normally a Full Board plus Drinks arrangement and consists of three meals each day, plus free beverages at meal times only. The drinks include locally produced beer, wine, soft drinks and water.
The All Inclusive Bronze programme includes three meals each day, plus a selection of locally produced alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages served with meals and from the bar. A limited selection of snacks is also available throughout the day.
