All Inclusive Holidays Gran Canaria
With legendary nightlife, sandy beaches and year-round sunshine, it’s easy to see why Gran Canaria is such a popular tourist destination. However, Gran Canaria is not your average beach destination: Gran Canria has a number of interesting landmarks to visit, whale watching opportunities and great hiking routes. There is something for everyone to enjoy!
One of the great things about opting for an all-inclusive Gran Canaria holiday is that all of your on-site food and drinks are included in the price of your holiday. This makes it easier for you to budget for your holiday and will work out, more often than not, cheaper than eating out.
Usually hotels provide three buffet style meals at set times throughout the day and a snack bar where travellers can get food and drinks between meals. While most food and drink is covered in the package, there are some exceptions. For example, many hotels charge extra for imported alcoholic drinks and champagnes.
Another great feature about all-inclusive hotels is that they tend to have excellent facilities as they know that holidaymakers will be spending much of their time at the resort. Such facilities include swimming pools, Jacuzzis, children’s activities and evening entertainment.
