So, tell us, which of these 2020 all-inclusive hotels in Croatia has won you over?
What You Should Know About All-inclusive Hotels
All-inclusive resorts and hotels are a great choice for families and those who simply don’t want the hassle of budgeting for food and drinks. You’ll find all-inclusive in every major tourist hotspot, and that means Croatia included.
It’s true that there aren’t as many all-inclusive hotels here in Croatia as there are in some other summer hotspots, but there are also some great ones to choose from. However, you might have a few queries you need answering before you decide whether to opt for all-inclusive or whether to go with a regular type of accommodation.
Why Is All-Inclusive In Croatia A Good Option?
Most all-inclusive hotels in Croatia offer an all-inclusive package that includes three standard meals per day, e.g., breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as drinks throughout the day and evening. Some hotels offer a range of alcoholic beverages included within that drinks package, whilst others offer a limited choice, with beer, wine, and local choices of vodka and other spirits. It varies from place to place, though soft drinks and water are as standard.
The plus point of all-inclusive is that kids can have as many soft drinks as they want in the sun, but entertainment is also included as part of your package. You’ll also get pool umbrellas and activities around the pool for the kids during the day.
Put simply; all inclusive helps to save you cash, even if it costs a little more at the point of booking. If your children are under a certain age, you might even find kids free places on offer; still, the age limit and availability of these vary from hotel to hotel. Also, if you can book outside of the regular children’s holidays, you’ll find lower prices and more availability, compared to when the kids are off school.
It is possible for non-residents of the hotel to enter into some all-inclusive hotels and use the pool facilities; however, they will obviously need to pay for their drinks. In terms of safety, this basically means that whilst an all-inclusive hotel is perfectly safe, and it doesn’t offer a safety guarantee. That’s simply something to bear in mind.
Where Are Croatia’s All-Inclusive Hotels?
Croatia doesn’t have the widest choice of all-inclusive hotels, compared to some of Europe’s other big summer hotspots, and you’ll mainly find them along the stretch of coastline, which runs between Dubrovnik and Umag. You’ll also find some on the islands, but you won’t find any all-inclusive anywhere else, including Zagreb. The vast majority can be found in the Istria area.
Most all-inclusive hotels are located just a little back from the main beach areas, so you will have to walk slightly to get into the center of town or to the beach, but this is normally only a few minutes away. Access is normally direct, so you don’t have to worry about traversing your way through difficult areas, and in terms of quality of food and drink, it’s normally very high.
What Is The Difference Between All Inclusive And All Inclusive Light?
In Croatia, you will find two main packages when it comes to all-inclusive hotels – all-inclusive and all-inclusive light. It can be confusing to know the differences, so let’s break it down.
- All-inclusive light: Three daily meals, a drinks selection whilst you’re eating, occasional snacks. This package doesn’t give you drinks during the day.
All-inclusive: Three daily meals, a drinks section during meals and throughout the day and night and snacks.
Entertainment and pool access are included in both packages.
