All inclusive resorts can be very appealing to first time visitors or vacationers because these resorts make all of your arrangements for you and you do not need to use cash in them at all. You just pay one charge for everything by credit card when you're ready to leave.
All inclusives can arrange your airfare and they can pick you up at the airport and transport you right to the resort (and back again later). There they beautifully house you and provide you with food and drinks 24 hours a day during your entire stay. They even take care of tipping the help. So this means that you will not have any unknown or unexpected bills with them.
Many people such as newly-weds, those with anniversaries or birthdays, elderly people and families with small children prefer this kind of comfortable Jamaican vacation experience over making their own air, taxi, lodging, food and refreshments arrangements. For these folks, an all inclusive resort is best even though they do not get to experience much of the real Jamaica, unless they leave the resort on their own.
The larger, newer, strictly all-inclusive resorts in Negril are listed and linked on the left side pop-out menu. However, most of the mid-size and large resorts in Negril (and Negril's luxury villas) offer their guests an all-inclusive option if they would so prefer.
What exactly does the term all-inclusive mean?
All-inclusive is a term that means different things to different resorts. So be sure, before you sign up with one, to discuss with its desk people just what this term means to them. For instance, some all-inclusives pay air fares for you and some do not or some give no extra charge town tours and some do not. Some provide no extra charge water activities like jet-skis, catamarans and glass bottom boat trips and some do not.
Every all-inclusive package includes lodging, food and drinks but some do not provide food or drinks after midnight until morning breakfast.
Most strictly all-inclusive resorts forbid tipping to keep their service levels always high. So do not try to do so as it could put that employee's job in jeapordy.

Owners, Managers and Patrons of All of Negril's Enterprises
All encyclopedias rely upon experts to provide them with authoritative and true articles about their subjects and this video encyclopedia is no exception. However, the articles that we use here are in photo and video form, so the experts whom we must rely upon to produce them are Negril's enterprise owners, managers and their patrons. After all, who is better quailfied to provide good visual information than these folks who have valid, first-hand knowledge about each of Negril's resorts, restaurants, clubs, shops, road stands, attractions and activities?
Therefore, we here request Negril's enterprise owners to record for us a brief digital video welcoming people to their enterprise and describing its attributes (preferably with them and some of their staff and / or their patrons in it). This will humanize their enterprise to the public by being a very friendly and inviting way of encouraging people to come to Negril for their vacations.
Other Videos and Photos
Enterprise owners (and their patrons) may also provide us with separate additional videos of some of the unique, interesting things that occur within their enterprises.
