All Inclusive Resorts
I have really enjoyed the no smoking laws here in the United States. I go to bars and restaurants and no longer come home smelling like someone else's ash tray. I have gotten so used to it that I really notice it if someone near me is smoking a cigarette.
I don't remember what the rules were the last time I was at an all incluive resort.
Do most all inclusive resorts have no smoking rules in place?
It would sway my decision if one resort allowed smoking and one didn't.
I primarily want to avoid smoking in the bars and restaurants, but I could see myself getting annoyed if smoke was wafting over to me while I was trying to relax by the pool or on the beach.
Each resort chain is a little different. Some allow smoking only on your balcony. Some resorts still allow smoking in most areas of the resort with the exception of the non-smoking rooms.
It would be interesting to see a percentage of resorts that still allow smoking in public areas. Hopefully the number is being reduced each year. I love going to restaurants and bars in the United States even more now that there is no chance of someone smoking near me.
Each destination is a little different too. Mexico has some national laws that apply to the resorts.
Someone else asked me this same question. If anyone is just getting back from a resort, it would be interesting to hear what the current policies are for smoking in public areas of the resort.
