Meals are included
Not having to think about what to feed the family is one of the greatest luxuries of going away. Stick to what you know or sample something you would never normally order – with All Inclusive, you can try it all. You might even get your little ones to find some new foods to keep up at home. In most All Inclusive hotels, there’s heaps of choice available for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks during the day, silencing any rumbling tummies. Some, such as Holiday Village Turkey, even have their own pancake restaurants – yes, that means every day is pancake day. Besides the pancake and ice cream stalls, this hotel has five restaurants for you to pick from. We’re talking Italian, Turkish, Asian and a buffet with everything from salads to hot dogs.

Drinks are included
Hello, hydration station. On an All Inclusive holiday, kids can order their soft drinks from the bar without needing to faff with extra cash. Of course, alcoholic drinks including beer, wine and local spirits are also up for grabs for the adults – so make the most of your annual leave by ordering an afternoon tipple or three. The Riu Palace Jamaica even has you cruising for your cocktails with a couple of swim-up pool bars. It really is hard work…

Good times are included
Kids’ clubs and activities like tennis and water aerobics are available at lots of hotels, but some of our All Inclusive faves go the extra mile to give you something that’s a bit different. We’re talking high ropes assault courses, waterpark access, snorkelling or surfing. Aqualand Village in Corfu lines up nearly 50 – yes, 50 – slides, a pirate-themed splash zone, wave pool and whirlpool bath. Good job there’s a snack bar nearby, as you might find yourself slipping and sliding all day long. Prepare for the dreaded “what are we doing today?” – there’s always an answer and its usually something fun.
Kids’ places are included
On an All Inclusive trip, your flights, transfers, hotel, food and drink are already in the bag, so all you have to worry about is packing your swimsuits and flip-flops. But even better than free drinks is a free kids’ place (we think…). With First Choice, you can bring one of the little’uns along without spending an extra penny, thanks to our huge selection of holidays including free kids’ places.
