Taking own beer and wine glass

Taking own beer and wine glass

I know a lot of you regulars will be able to help and advise. never been all inclusive before and heard horrendous stories of beer/wine being dished up in plastic cups. Would it be perfectly acceptable to use ones own glasses. Anyone normally does that? Will be staying at hotel named Maharaba Royal Salem a 3* i think. Cheap deal- so beggars cannot be choosers, I guess.

Any help on the glass issue would be appreciated.

thanks,

Pete

if you are indoors you will get glass glasses, if you are near the pool you will get plastic for safety reasons,

you wont get a beer glass as we know it over there as they only serve lager or beire as it is called,

a lot of people take a larger glass with them and they will soon let you know,

What I was wondering is if the all-inclusive 'rules' would allow it.

we have had no problems at all

we always go all inclusive

we buy plastic ones out of the pound shop which are light weight

and you get six

so for that price any problems you can throw them away

If one is staying in "5T" ai would it b necessary to take own glass. It sounds like a bbq rather than a holiday. If u go ai why take kitchen sink an all!!

When I went all inclusive at Christmas (Hotel Marhaba Beach, Sousse), the drinks served everywhere inside AND outside (all excellent, efficient waiter-service!) were in proper glasses - no plastic / paper ones to be seen. They even served tea & coffee outdoors, all of which used proper cups & saucers (& teapots), rather than plastic ones. Cappuccinos were great! Admittedly the bottled water was in plastic 1.5 litre bottles (and was free, unlike many all-inclusive hotels).

in the many yrs we have been going abroad we have seen a lot of things going on in 5 star hotels with all inclusive/ half board/bed and breakfasts

especially around pool areas

in one country we saw a guy dumping glasses in a mop bucket because his sink was full and he was on his own under pressure (5 star)

thats why we take clear plastic glasses not bbq glasses as suggested

we travel 3 to 4 times a yr been to 24 countries dont need taught what to take with us its our choice

we use hotel glasses at night and get the same 1 refilled
