Belize All Inclusive Resorts – What You Need To Know

Whether you’ve never stayed at a Belize allinclusive resort or you’re an old hand, there’s a lot to consider before visiting an allinclusive hotel. The primary attraction of an allinclusive resort is, of course, that you’ll pay one upfront cost, but what else can you expect?

The Restaurant 

Part of the “allinclusive” factor of staying at one of these resorts is that they have their own in-house restaurant. But some guests may be surprised that reservations are required. In Belize, however, you can usually get served even without making a formal reservation, but if you have any special dietary requirements, it’s important to let the staff know ahead of time.

As for a dress code, Belize is a very casual country. In most cases, shorts and T-shirts are just fine at a Belize resort, but it’s worth inquiring about when you check in.


Some allinclusive resorts in Belize regularly feature live entertainment, usually in the form of music. Belizeans are famous for their lively, danceable music, and many resorts regularly hold concerts for both guests and visitors. It’s always a good idea to ask ahead of time if there will be any live music or other entertainment shows and whether advanced booking or the (separate) purchase of a ticket is required.

Bicycles, Boats, and Golf Carts 

Depending on where you stay, you may be able to take advantage of the free use of golf carts, bicycles, sea kayaks, and/or small sailboats (like a Hobie Cat). These may be in limited supply, so it’s always a good idea to make advanced reservations.

Day Trips 

Belize is an adventure paradise, so every allinclusive resort will offer exciting day trips for their guests. Some day trips, however, are sold separately, so be sure to inquire what your included options are and the cost (if any) of these trips.

Tipping Policy 

Yes, the allinclusive price includes lodging, meals, and services, but what about the staff? Do they accept tips, and are they appropriate? In Belize, it’s considered customary to offer tips (American dollars are always accepted in addition to the local currency) for services rendered. Resorts in Belize are usually staffed by locals who work hard to provide a good income for themselves and their families.
