It’s all about all inclusive in 2017, with the poor exchange rate leading everyone to do all they can to avoid changing their pounds! All inclusive is also the most budget-friendly way to get a cheap break without being surprised by extra food and drink costs while you’re away, so if you’re heading to Crete this summer you’ll want to check out the island’s best all inclusive hotels.
