All in for an All Inclusive?


Sometimes we all just need to unwind. To switch off. To recharge.

The concept of an all inclusive holiday is not a new. Cruise holidays, by their very nature offer food, drink and entertainment in their contained environment. So, what about an all inclusive holiday in a comfortable Algarve hotel? A kind of onland cruise? Terra firma fun?

The Real chain of hotels is one of Portugal’s leading hospitality providers with several four and five star hotels across the country including the beautifully located and comfortably luxurious Grande Real Santa Eulalia near Albufeira and the Real Marina hotel set right at the gateway to the Ria Formosa natural park in Olhão. Near to the centre of Albufeira you can find the Real Bellavista – a comfortable, well-located, four star hotel that now offers the flexibility of B & B, half-board or all inclusive packages.

For many the main attraction of travel is to discover the unknown and to enjoy new and different experiences. However, it cannot be denied that sometimes we all just need to unwind. To switch off. To recharge. To have nothing to do and all day to do it…….The attractions of all inclusive packages may not be for everybody – some travelers thrive on the unexpected and are enthused by taking chances on the unknown. For others, the comfort of a routine, of a reliable supply to suit their demand, is integral to their holiday enjoyment. Not having to think about supermarket shopping, or finding a nice and good value restaurant each day is a huge plus. For those looking for guaranteed relaxation, the knowledge that somebody else is doing all the work and organzing is what makes the holiday a holiday. The most taxing task each day is to choose between fish or meat, white wine or red, outdoor pool and sunlounger or indoor pool and sauna……

During the summer months, the all-inclusive package offered at the Real Bellavista is great for families. The menu is international with some portuguese influences and with plenty of choice to keep even the fussiest eaters happy. Then it’s off to the pool, or joining in with the fun with the entertainment team, or there is always the option of the beach – and believe us, the beaches in the Algarve are among the very best in the world.

As many people opt to remain in the hotel during the days and in the evening, the chances of striking up some holiday friendships is very high. This is another huge plus for families with children – kids always want more friends to play with. And in the winter months, when the hotel welcomes a more mature clientele, there is no shortage of new conversational partners with whom to pass the time.
