Marriott All Inclusive Vacations- Any Advantages for being a Platinum Premier?

Discussion created by bhamous on Feb 3, 2013

My wife and I would like to celebrate our anniversary at a All Inclusive Resort. I know Marriott discontinued the use of points for there all inclusive vacation packages, but I was was wondering if there are any benefits for being Platinum Premier at these locations. I have 350k points and don't mind dropping alot on this stay.


1) Can you use points for hotel stay and pay for the All inclusive part?


2) Room upgrades with an all inclusive package?


3) Anyone convert points into Marriott checks to use for a stay? (I know this is not a great use of points for the value)


4) How does Marriott All Inclusive packages compare to others?


If I really want the All Inclusive package and Marriott points do not help very much, should I just look for another option (ie. Sandals or someone who specializes in these types of stays) or should I still consider paying for a Marriott Package?
