[Tip #7] – When Your Room Sucks

What To Do If Your Room Sucks

This is NOT MY room. There’s a mistake here…..

All-Inclusive Resorts have become very popular.

Many are fully booked ……during holidays it can be 110%.

So occasionally someone gets a room they are not happy with.

These simple “first step” actions can help you avoid a shocking surprise:

1. Upon being let into your room (before your bellman leaves) do this:

  • Flush the toilet
  • Turn on the shower (check for hot water)
  • Turn on the sink (check for hot water)
  • Check for ceiling leaks
  • Check outside for anything missing from your balcony
  • Take a quick scan of the bed linens…..
  • Do you have enough pillows?

2. Have the bellman show you how everything works

  • Room safe, TV, lights, etc.

3. Locate the ice machine

  • Ice is 1 of the 4 food groups.

4. Check the clock radio to be sure the alarm is not set for 4:30am

Then relax……you are on vacation. Put that ice to good use.

All products are independently selected by our editors, generally after a day of heavy drinking and debauchery. However, when you buy something through our retail links, there's no additional cost to you but we do earn an affiliate commission which keeps the lights on here, and provides more incentive for us to drink and debauch. So buy some stuff :-)
