Will it be the one for you?
You will probably like staying at an all-inclusive if: you dislike signing bills for everything you do at a hotel, and would prefer paying once; you’re tired of paying hotel restaurant and bar bills; you like the idea of indulging in unlimited food and drink; you’re ready for a resort where the staff is not angling for tips.
You may not be the ideal prospect for an all-inclusive if: you can’t help finding the entire concept downscale or distasteful; you’re not a big eater or drinker, and don’t want to pay for AYCE (All You Can Eat); or you’re an oenophile who’s not going to drink beer or wines; tipping individual staffers is something you like to do.

What is a Full Board holiday?
Diffrence between All-inclusive and Fullboard. Full Board means that breakfast, lunch and dinner are included in the holiday price, but any drinks or snacks outside these meal times will cost you extra. Full Board is easily confused with All Inclusive, but doesn’t have quite the same offerings, which can have its benefits, depending on your holiday preferences. As explained above.
Many holidaymakers love going Full Board because it leaves room for you to get out and experience a destination’s nightlife scene for yourself. With drinks not included in the price, you don’t have to feel guilty about spending money on drinks elsewhere.
That said, Full Board still usually includes a basic range of drinks, like tea, juice and coffee. And many holidaymakers enjoy three meals without fizzy or alcoholic drinks and snacks anyway, so this option allows them to save money on amenities they wouldn’t have used in the first place.
What are the benefit of FullBoard
Stay by the pool
If lounging by your hotel pool all day is your idea of a perfect holiday, Full Board is a great option, as your nearest meal is only ever a few steps away. Depending on your hotel’s range of activities, Full Board can be great if you find it difficult tearing yourself away from the fun.
Other than drinks and any light snacks between meals you won’t have to worry about the added expenditure of dining out, so Full Board is a great option for those watching their finances.
You can feel secure in the knowledge that all your meals are covered, leaving you with just your drinks and and snacks to pay for. You’ll only have to shell out more cash if you want to.
Great for kids
Full Board is a top option for families with children. Come lunchtime you can simply herd your little ones from the pool to the hotel restaurant without the drama of getting them ready and shuffling out of the resort in search of a family-friendly establishment.
Full Board is less time-consuming and definitely less stressful, so parents can relax knowing that breakfast, lunch and dinner are all taken care of.
