An Apple Vacations’ All-Inclusive Experience – for the first time!


So you have never been to Mexico or The Caribbean?  There is no time like the present to start! Don’t know what to expect? Well our very own Content Specialist Lauren Roberts just went on her very first Apple Vacation and is sharing her experience with you.

A Travel Newbie’s First All-Inclusive Experience

As told by Apple Vacations’ Content Specialist  – Lauren Roberts

Let me preface this entire post by saying that I’ve never been out of the country. Growing up, my parents only traveled to the Jersey Shore and – on extremely rare occasions – Disney World. So, you can imagine my excitement when I found out I would be visiting Mexico for my very first time.

Crystal clear water, beautiful sandy beaches, and all-inclusive accommodations? I felt like I had booked a ticket to paradise! Most importantly, I would finally be able to see some of the properties that I worked with on a daily basis. And let me tell you, seeing a resort on the internet is very different than seeing it in person. I finally understand that now.

To be honest, before I started working at Apple Vacations, my knowledge of all-inclusive resorts was very slim. I never really traveled and therefore, never truly knew what was out there.

Well kids…


I was finally able to experience a true Apple Vacation, which was something I had really been looking forward to. The airport provided us with seamless check-in, and I have to admit that I was a little nervous about the entire process. Since I don’t travel often, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But getting onto my flight was a breeze. Non-stop flights are a major selling point, by the way.

Once we got off the plane and through customs, a transfer was ready to take us to our destination. Our driver was kind and provided us with cool beverages while we completed our site inspections, and our guide was extremely helpful with any questions we had. He continued with us throughout our entire stay, assisting us at each hotel we visited throughout the day.

Our host hotel, Secret Silversands Riviera Cancun, provided us with luxurious guestrooms, beautiful a la carte and buffet restaurants, and absolutely stunning grounds. Not to mention, the Unlimited-Luxury®. concept is just out of this world amazing. I had my choice of French, Italian, Mexican, and Japanese cuisine on a nightly basis. Let’s just say a few of us visited multiple restaurants a night. Drinks were available wherever you turned, and I was in complete bliss being able to order poolside as I sprawled out into a lounge chair. Special shout out goes to the resort’s room service option. I’m sorry I ordered half your menu. Totally not sorry I ate it all. It was delicious.

The Unlimited-Luxury®.experience truly provides guests with a worry-free vacation. Not having to pay after eating at a restaurant was a little strange at first (very dine and dash), but it was fantastic to know that you could essentially leave your wallet in your room. We did, however, wind up tipping for exceptional service, which we experienced a lot of.

The nightly entertainment and daily activities were free as well, so we were able to see a show or take advantage of non-motorized water sports whenever we pleased. I was even able to experience a poolside tequila tasting! Note to self: You will probably never like tequila no matter how hard you try. Points for persistence though.

Some group members chose to go kayaking in the ocean and had a great time. Others chose to experience a show or two at night, which always ended in rave reviews. Then there were the ones (cough, cough) who chose to end their night stuffing their face full of tempura fried ice cream. No shame!

So, in short, would I visit an all-inclusive resort through Apple Vacations again? Let’s see… Roundtrip airfare and transfers, hotel accommodations, unlimited food and beverages, and the assistance of an in-resort representative whenever you need it, among many other wonderful perks? You bet I would!

Would I eat snails again? Nope. Sorry, Bordeaux. Your lamb chop was excellent though!
