When we hear the word "resort," most of us automatically think of expensive luxury hideaways. This can certainly be the case, but by no means is it the rule. In fact, resorts can be a surprisingly economical way to enjoy a package of services that make you feel like you're in the lap of luxury without spending extravagant amounts.

The fact is that there are more discount resorts than ever before, and they're doing great business among travelers who want to experience the thrill and adventure of exotic travel, but need to stick to a budget. In many cases, these resorts have purchased a chunk of land on which they can bundle many services, thus controlling costs and passing the savings onto their guests.

Discount Resort Offerings

For example, besides standard hotel accommodations, many discount resorts in the Caribbean offer pristine beach areas, gardens and wooded areas, natural jogging tracks, state-of-the-art gymnasiums, recreation areas, libraries, computer labs, bars and restaurants, small movie theaters, and live entertainment venues. Since many families travel with children, special kid-oriented playgrounds, activity centers, and child care facilities are commonly available.

It should be mentioned that, as many of the most popular resorts are located in foreign countries, guest security is an issue that resorts take very seriously. As such, they should always offer 24-hour security personnel to safeguard the property effectively, yet without creating an oppressive presence. They should also offer accurate information and helpful advice to their guests who plan on leaving the resort to visit nearby areas.
