Difference between Resorts and Hotels
The main difference between resorts and hotels lies in their purpose. The main purpose of a resort is to provide relaxation and recreation as well as accommodation, meals and other basic services, while the main purpose of a hotel is to provide accommodation and meals for its guests. Also, you can find resorts in a scenic environment while hotels can be in city centres or other crowded areas. In addition, resorts can offer a variety of activities that hotels don’t. Another difference is in the free services; both often offer free services such as Wi-Fi, newspapers, etc. However, nowadays resorts also offer free transport from the airport and tickets to nearby tourist attractions. Guests tend to stay longer in a resort, while hotels are more used for overnight stays. Finally, a hotel can be found within a resort, but a resort is never located within a hotel.
