In addition to expanding their culinary creativity, many resorts are also paying special attention to accommodating guests with food allergies or special dietary needs. Brands like Secrets Resorts (for adults) and Dreams Resorts (for families) have robust processes for noting diet restrictions and preparing customized meals so all guests can enjoy the inclusive dining. Often the hostess and servers will confirm any allergies or restrictions with guests to clearly communicate needs to the kitchen staff. This ensures all guests can safely enjoy the inclusive dining options.
