Today we are spotlighting a rare opportunity for budget-oriented travelers, namely, to get a room at one of the world’s finest hotel chains at a price that is only a bit more expensive than staying at home. Yes, you can actually get a room at the InterContinental Presidente Ixtapa All Inclusive Resort for US$207 per couple in the coming months.
The InterContinental chain, in case you don’t know, is famous for its 5-star hotels in almost every major city around the world. This is actually a 4-star resort, but when a chain with a luxury reputation like InterContinental puts their name on it, you can expect that things are going to exceed expectations.
A Super Saver rate at US$207 per night at the InterContinental Presidente Ixtapa All Inclusive Resort for selected dates in the coming months. This is for two people with all meals and drinks included.
The room comes with either one king or two double beds, and faces the garden section of the resort. A pool view room is only US$245 per night, and an ocean view room is only US$250 per night. These specials are only available on Expedia, our booking partner, while supplies last.
A very generous all-inclusive package for this level of luxury
One thing I’ve learned while researching these deals is that the high-end resorts tend to have more exclusions listed in their all-inclusive details. For example, you might see that many menu items or top-shelf alcohol brands are not included, and sometimes it means only local beer and house wine are included. But at the InterContinental Presidente Ixtapa All Inclusive Resort it literally includes all food and drinks, period.
That might not seem so special, but again, this is a luxurious 4-star resort with 5 restaurants (including a steak house) and room service.
Other things that are included are daytime activities and evening entertainment
Tennis, aqua aerobics, games, and contests, Children’s activity program (ages 4-11), plus resort taxes and gratuities. If you are just in the mood to relax and enjoy a few drinks out by the pool or on the beach, this is a great deal, but if you are in the mood to play tennis or go snorkeling or do other water sports, this is an amazing deal.
Almost as cheap as staying at home
If you’ve been to an all-inclusive resort you might already have done the math on this, but in case you haven’t here it goes. Let’s say you went to Miami Beach for a week and stayed in a hotel without food and drinks included. You’d pay at least $200 per night for a room near the beach, and for two people you’d probably spend at least US$200 per day on food and drinks and entertainment as well, and that’s if you were trying to keep expenses low.
So a special deal like this is like getting all the food and drinks for free when you rent a luxury room on the beach, or like getting a free room when you buy your food and drinks. During winter the price will be double, so now is the time to book.
