In Defence of All Inclusive Hotels on Tenerife

The news from Greece about proposals to limit or ban all inclusive (AI) hotels prompted discussion about the impact of AI in other areas, including Tenerife.

Should they be limited or banned because they have a detrimental impact on whichever destination they’re located?

As is the case when it comes to AI, the usual ‘off the shelf ‘criticisms were rolled out – loss of local business, AI means poor quality, AI guests don’t spend as much as other visitors resulting in less money coming into the local economy.

The debate about AI being good or evil isn’t a simplistic one.

Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
