Value and sun-seeking holidaymakers have long enjoyed all-inclusive getaways to the likes of the Caribbean and Mexico. With these holidays proving enduringly popular, major brands have begun to provide all-inclusive holidays in Europe as well.
Many travellers feel an all-inclusive holiday offers a more relaxed experience than other holiday types, as there are fewer concerns over budgeting and spending money. For families, this equates to extra ice creams and treats for the kids and maybe a few more mojitos for mum. Also, less expenditure on food and drinks can mean more money for activities, day trips and souvenirs.
All-inclusive holidays afford the freedom to say: “Yes, why not, we’re on holiday!” without checking your wallet first.
If you are in the market for an unforgettable all-inclusive experience, you won’t go wrong with one of our favourites. Grand Palladium has taken up residence in Ibiza, and is ideal for those looking for luxury. And now’s the time to go ‘all-in’ in Europe.
Not that you need any more reasons to make the most of the luxury-for-less lifestyle, you can also discover our four reasons to choose an all-inclusive holiday with RCI at the end of this story.
Rest and relaxation at the Grand Palladium Palace Resort & Spa Ibiza
The Grand Palladium Palace Resort is a five-star all-inclusive in Ibiza’s quieter resort of Playa d’en Bosa.
Open from April to October, a fun-filled entertainment programme awaits, while the three themed à la carte restaurants will keep you well-fuelled during your stay.
In between live music and shows, the chic Balinese beds around the resort’s two large swimming pools, and chill out zone offer contemporary surroundings made for blissful relaxation.
Need to boost the wellness factor? Head for Zentropía, the resort’s spa centred on expert and personalised treatments. With waterfalls, sensation showers, saunas and steam baths, it’s the perfect place to while away an afternoon and revitalise mind, body and soul.
Rooms and suites are light and airy, designed with space and elegance in mind, while also being well-stocked with modern luxuries including a pillow menu for a restful slumber.
What’s included in the package: guests benefit from the Dine Around package – which means you can use restaurants in seven different hotels around the island. The all-inclusive package includes all meals and many beverage choices. Within the Grand Palladium there are three à la carte restaurants serving a range of cuisine types, plus one buffet restaurant and two bars.
Guests can get involved in various activities including wine tasting, table games, and cocktail and food workshops. Plus, there are also live music and dance performances and themed parties to enjoy in the evening. Whether you fancy singing along with the ‘King of Pop’ at the Michael Jackson tribute show, or dancing the night away at the full moon party – there is plenty to fill your evenings!
Private transfers from the airport are also included.
Four reasons to choose all-inclusive with RCI
- All-inclusive doesn’t have to mean all-restrictive. Get the best of both worlds with one week to relax in an all-inclusive resort and one week of sightseeing.
- RCI assesses all resorts for quality and guest satisfaction. The all-inclusive resorts you see on RCI.com have been carefully selected to ensure RCI members receive the service they expect. What’s more, last year seven RCI-affiliated properties featured in TripAdvisor’s Top 25 all-inclusive resorts.
- Packages always vary by resort, so check the fine print to make sure you are happy with what you are getting for the experience. The drinks package for example, could be based on local or branded spirits.
- It pays to be an RCI member, as member Alan Dingomal discovered when he booked an all-inclusive holiday to the Dominican Republic: “Using my RCI exchange, it worked out a much cheaper way to access a holiday of this quality than on the high street. I took a party of six for two weeks at a cost of two week’s exchange plus £6,700 – and that included flights. The other party of six friends paid £15,000 for the same holiday through a high street agency! I had to exchange my RCI weeks, but I paid for those more than 12 years ago and can use them every year for different holidays. It really was amazing value for money; I honestly don’t know how they do it!”
