    We go all inclusive when we take the teenagers so they have friends to meet in the complexes, it's safer for them to wander round the hotel area and food and drink on tap whenever they want it.

    I save up a bit every month so it's not as much of a shock when I pay for it

    This year we went to Greece, we also all love the south coast of Spain and the Canaries.

    Enjoy

    It has to be Orlando, the kids are just at the right age to enjoy all the parks, we go every year and I love it

    i only recommend them if you don't mind being surrounded by hundreds of other kids. just got back from a week at First Choice Holiday Village all incl in Costa del Sol and it was a living nightmare. you have to remember that every kid of every family there has also been let out of their parents pockets too. never again for as long as i live. worst £21/2k i have ever parted company with

    I would tend to agree, I know there are probably some who have had good experiences of All Inc, but we did have a bad time.

    Everybody just seemed to want to grab everything on offer, meal times was a nightmare, they kept running out of food, kids everywhere running around, the pool area was packed all the time, certainly not my idea of a good holiday, but like I said I am sure there are some great all inc holidays available.

    parents were so busy chillaxing that they didn't bother to change baby swim nappies and pool had to be emptied 2/7 days to clear pool of poo, ugh! and this was a UK only hotel so only Brits responsible for this debacle...shameful

    We are currently on our 3rd all inclusive and although this one is very different to the others as its a Nile cruise we have never had a problem with them. Be very choosy where you go and maybe don't go to an all British one. We have been to Egypt and Rhodes and as I said now this one which Is a cruise on the Nile probably not great tor kids though

    funnily enough, we are doing cruises next year instead. i think this is the way forward for us now as our son will be almost 14 next year. we thought an all brits one would be for the best but boy were we wrong...

    would love to be able to go term time really but don't want to take son out of school. it's not because of the price difference, it's to have less kids around me.

    We went allincusive this year to Kalamaki in Zante for the first time .We were with my daughter, son-in-law and grandson (age 2years) I didn't know what to expect but it was fantastic ,food excellent hotel very good. Yes there were children but there were enjoying themselves not being a nuisance, it was noiser than I'm used to ( usually go all adults) but I really enjoyed it.Will certainly be going allinclusive again.

    You need to go to the Ultra AI. The 5* plus ones.

    They never run out of food as they have a 24hour restaurant as a back up and at least 5 al a carte.

    They tend to be in large spread out resorts so it never seems busy.

    The ones that are in Turkey when you fly into Antalaya along that coast are all up to the higher standard.

    We always do a two week AI here in the summer Bliss
