Among the wide range of hotels and resorts in Mallorca, it is worth mentioning those that offer “all inclusive”: not only accommodation and breakfast, but also lunch, dinner, snacks, and maybe even drinks (with certain limits).
Why stay in an all-inclusive in Mallorca?
There are several reasons why it is a good idea to choose one of these establishments for our stay on the island.
The economic one is one of the main reasons: we will be able to save something with respect to eating outside the hotel, but it is also a way to control the expense of our vacations by knowing in advance what the all-inclusive accommodation will cost us. This will also allow us to allocate some money to other activities.
It also provides convenience, as we do not have to look for places to eat and dine. We can enjoy our activities outside the hotel knowing that we don’t have to worry about finding a suitable establishment. Or we can stay at the hotel and enjoy its facilities or entertainment programs without having to go elsewhere to eat.
These aspects are even more important if we are traveling with children, with whom it is not always easy to choose the right place to eat. In an all-inclusive resort there will always be something to their liking, and with the convenience of being within the same enclosure.
How much does an all-inclusive cost in Mallorca?
We can find all-inclusive hotels from only 76€ per person per day, up to… whatever we want to spend. There are all-inclusive hotels of different categories and prices, depending on the concepts included, the variety of meals, the complementary services offered by the hotel, etc.
How much does an all-inclusive cost in Mallorca?
Type of vacation
If what we want is to know as much as possible of the island, and in particular its gastronomy, then we should discard an all-inclusive, and opt for bed and breakfast, or perhaps including dinner. But if we are looking for maximum relaxation and minimum worries, this will be our favorite type of hotel.
We will have to plan which places we want to visit, and choose an all-inclusive hotel near those areas. The big tourist centers of Majorca have a good number of beds of all kinds spread all over the island. Whether we want to visit the great sandy beaches of the south of Majorca, the hidden coves of the east, the lively north of the island or the wild beauty of the Tramuntana, there will be an all-inclusive establishment nearby where we can stay.
Types of restaurants
All-inclusive hotels usually have several restaurants to satisfy most palates, and to provide variety on the days of our stay.
Extra services or services that we do not use
In all-inclusive establishments there will be services with an additional cost, such as certain drinks, some of the restaurants, access to certain facilities… it is important to check if there is any type of restriction (hourly or extra charge) for these services, especially if our main motivation is to control the budget. For the same reason we can rule out establishments that offer services that we know we will not use.
All-inclusive alcohol limitations
In addition to the limits established by each hotel on services that may be outside the all-inclusive (such as certain activities or restaurants), there are legal limitations on the number of alcoholic beverages that can be consumed free of charge by each guest, which are three drinks during lunch and another three during dinner. These restrictions apply in areas of the municipalities of Calviá, Palma and Llucmajor, which mainly include the areas of Magaluf and s’Arenal.
