What is the difference between a resort and a hotel?

A hotel is geared more towards nightly stays with daily maid service. Common areas in hotels are inside and outside and shared by many guests. Some hotels have restaurants on site. Resorts are much more private, they typically have a community heated pool that is less densely populated without daily maid service although that can easily be arranged if the guest chooses. Resorts have full kitchens to allow cooking inside as well as bringing home left overs. The style of our resorts are more friendly to COVID concerns and ultimately less guest using common areas than hotels. Hotels create standard amenities throughout while resorts are often decorated and owned by individual owners. Most resorts offer remote entry so no need to visit an office to gain access while most hotels require a check in process that can be avoided by staying in a resort.
