Apartments for rent in Punta Cana vs. all-inclusive hotels
Recently, the tendency to abandon the all-inclusive system is actively gaining momentum around the world. We have decided to explain the reasons for it and compare hotels to apartments for rent in Punta Cana. Let’s look at the main reasons below.
1. Restriction of freedom
Surely you have often thought about the fact that with the all-inclusive system during vacation you least want to wake up to a fixed time, go for breakfast and consume the standard set offered for breakfast: an omelet or scrambled eggs that are served in hotels day after day. There could be also a reverse situation: you get up early, for example, because of the difference in time zones… And being hungry you should wait until they have a buffet. Or at night you have been at the club, and just do not have strength to wake up on the alarm clock to go for breakfast. Now you have to wait until the lunch time for a full meal. A disgusting start of the day, is not it?
2. You do not try local dishes
Agreeing to the “all inclusive” system, you automatically deprive yourself of the pleasure of going to a restaurant or buying something in a local supermarket or market. It is important to understand that people go abroad not only to relax. They do it also to change the scenery, to see another country, to explore its culture. But if you constantly stay at the hotel with the “all inclusive” system, you lose a huge information. And urely you start getting bored with the hotel cuisine. Cooking is part of the culture. When you go on vacation to another country, of course, you try to visit sights, but what about the national cuisine? National cuisines had been created for centuries and have rich history. Therefore, without any doubt, the national cuisine of any country is its face.
What is the advantage of refusing the all-inclusive system? You can chill out in a restaurant and try national local food. Or you can go to an eatery, where only natives eat. For example, in the Dominican Republic there is plenty of street food stands: from fresh fruits, coconuts, finishing chicharron, a dish prepared from fried pork skin. In our opinion, it is very foolish to change the impressions from gastronomic tourism to slavery near the buffet.
3. It is unhealthy
Having seen a huge variety of dishes, you will necessarily overeat, because you will want to try all the dishes that you find on the buffet, and that you liked. How can one miss this opportunity! And the free alcohol that never stops flowing in the bar, on the beach, in the hotel restaurant? It is just worth noting that this alcohol is not of the best quality. Naturally, nobody will serve you Gold Label or Moet Chandon in an all inclusive hotel. The result is very sad: during your vacation you can not only put on some weight, but also have some problems with the stomach.
4. You will get tired with “All inclusive”
In the first days you go with interest in the hotel restaurant, choose food and try new dishes. To make your own breakfast, lunch or dinner of the prepared meals that you can choose seems really cool. But by the end of the holiday you will simply be too lazy to take a plate once again and hang around at the buffet, serving food. You will just want to sit with a glass of wine, waiting for a couple of snacks or a salad with a main dish. And then drink a cup of coffee and go to rest in the room. As a conclusion, we definitely state that it is much more pleasant and more useful to have your holiday without the “all inclusive” system.
You can choose a hotel with a buffet only for breakfast, if it’s too lazy to cook in the morning for you, or even better book apartments for rent in Punta Cana.
