My husband and I stayed at this hotel for five nights for our honeymoon. We used his Marriott points for our stay and for the all-inclusive option. I was a little skeptical of the all-inclusive because there weren’t many reviews for it, and the one I found was not positive. We thought the all-inclusive was great. I don’t know what it would cost if you were not using points, so I can’t say it’s worth it if you’re paying cash for it. However, when using points that he gained from travelling for work, it was definitely worth it.
It included all meals at the hotel, including room service, all non-alcoholic beverages, and some alcoholic beverages. From the description, we weren’t sure what alcoholic beverages were included, but when we arrived, we were told that the house liquor, a couple local beers, and many of the fruity/frozen drinks (pina coladas, daiquiris, margaritas, mai tais, cayman mama, etc.) were included. Some of the more expensive specialty drinks were not included, but the included ones were enough for us.
The website says there are 5 or so restaurants, but a couple of them serve the same thing. The breakfast buffet at Red Parrot is fabulous. We would not have gone there everyday like we did if we didn’t have the all-inclusive option, as it would have cost about $50 for both of us to eat breakfast. Also, we never ate at Balboa’s Lounge because it’s just a bar in the lobby that we thought got its food from Red Parrot or room service. We ate at Solana a few nights, including the all-you-can-eat lobster night (which also includes other entrée options). The all-you-can-eat lobster night and Buccaneer’s Feast are the only meals for which you are charged an extra fee on top of the all-inclusive. It was definitely worth it though! We also ate quite a few lunches at Del Sol bar/Solana, which serve the same food for lunch. The calamari is amazing, and I ate it almost everyday!
The only other thing we did that I would recommend is the Fat Fish Adventures waverunner tour to Stingray City. It’s a little pricier than the other Stingray City options, but it is a much smaller group (about 12 people compared to 50-100 on the tour boats). Try to take the last tour of the day because your guide will stay out later with you because there’s not another tour to get back for. We stopped at Starfish Island, Stingray City, another spot to snorkel, and finally a fun bar right off the water.
