Full Answer

The term "board" refers to the table on which meals are eaten in the home or hotel. This is also the origin of the term "room and board," implying that both accommodations and food are provided to the lodger.

An all-inclusive hotel serves three meals just like a full-board hotel. Alcoholic drinks and snacks are also included in the price and may be served outside of normal meal times.
