All Inclusive Resorts
I love going to all inclusive resorts, but it really gets me going when all inclusive resort companies try to take advantage of their customers.
A few examples from prior discussions on this site:
* Sandals always has a 65% off sale and the countdown clock on their site simply refreshes when it hits zero. That is pretty scammy.
* Not sure if it is true, but I heard that there was no wine available in the French restaurant at a Now Resort (even though there was house wine available everywhere else in the resort) because they wanted to force people to buy expensive bottles of wine.
* The internet issue. Charging your guests $15 per session or hour of internet use is really scammy. Resorts should all have free resort wide wi-fi so guests can post updates about how much fun they are having on their vacation at xyz resort. It also would lead to more business travelers having confidence that they can take a break at an all inclusive resort.
* Is it oceanview or not? Just because it faces the ocean doesn't mean it is oceanview. If there is a bunch of palm trees or another building in the way of the view, then it is not oceanview. I shouldn't be paying a premium for the room.
What other scammy things are all inclusive resorts doing? Maybe if we can out them and shame them a little bit, they will stop what they are doing. I would be interested to hear other examples so I know what to look out for.
