Should I choose an All Inclusive Dubai Holiday?

A Dubai All Inclusive holiday does offer one significant advantage- especially for families and that is convenience

January 11th, 2019
As the economic pressures continue to bite, an increasing number of families are opting for all inclusive holidays to ensure that their holiday is fully budgeted for before they even leave the UK. So should you choose an all inclusive holiday in Dubai. We would argue that this probably not necessary, depending on where you choose to stay.

Is All Inclusive in Dubai Necessary?

All inclusive holidays in Dubai are available, however only a limited number of hotels offer all inclusive deals, and for the vast majority of family holidays in Dubai, all inclusive deals are simply not necessary. All the beach hotels in Dubai are located minutes away from fast food restaurants, casual dining outlets, cafes and fine dining. Each hotel will also generally have between 5-10 restaurants within the hotel. You might be staying at a 5* Dubai hotel, but dining in the restaurants will be a lot cheaper than you might think. A typical meal at one of the hotel restaurants will cost between 100-150 dhs per person which is about £18-£25. Fast food outlets and café prices are comparable to UK prices and will not therefore break the bank.

Unlike destinations like the Maldives and Mauritius where there are limited food and drink options close to the hotel and where hotel prices for food can be very high, Dubai offers budget friendly dining options.
