Talk about a free-for-all that’s unfit for the entire family.

A sneaky mom is proudly boasting her latest parenting hack: Using expired wristbands from an all-inclusive resort to enjoy food and drinks and take advantage of luxe facilities with her kids — gratis.

When Roxanne Balciunas revealed that her brood visited the Ramada Hotel & Suites in Kusadasi, Aydin, Turkey, from her hometown of Sheffield, South Yorkshire, in May, she tossed her used wristbands into her travel bag.

Upon rediscovering them at a later date, she decided to book another stay in the same town on July 7 — but this time, in a cheap apartment 10 minutes away from the resort.

With the old bracelets in tow, she tried to sneak into the resort, where her mom was staying, while she and her two children, ages 13 and 6, were wearing the wristbands. To her amazement, it worked.

Now-viral TikTok footage from her lavish stay shows the family of three — who vacation together on a monthly basis, according to this mom of the year — gorging on desserts and lavish meals poolside and free of charge.

Online, she bragged about “stealing the Ramada all-inclusive.”

“Call me a thief all you like but I enjoyed my week of free food and drink,” boasted Balciunas, who is employed as a hospitality worker.

She told Kennedy News that she had encouraged her mom to stay at the resort for the last-minute trip, and upon finding her old bands from May, began joking about the prospects of hotel crashing.

“I was just messing about, saying ‘we’ll go and eat their food,’ ” she said. “I was just joking at first to the kids, but then we did.”

She added: “I booked last minute to go and surprise her. I used the bands, and it worked.”

The enterprising mom-of-two claimed the hotel workers didn’t check her wristbands when she entered the facilities — a security slip Balciunas and her son found “quite funny.”

“I was really conscious that they’d notice — but luckily they didn’t,” she said.

As the “lucky” family embarked on the ultimate food heist, Balciunas admitted she ate more than she usually would because it was “free.”

“It made it more exciting because it was free,” she said. “I think I ate more this time than I did last time when we paid.”

However, Balciunas, who complimented the “lovely” hotel, admitted she won’t be trying this again, especially after sharing the incriminating footage to TikTok, where she’s racked up quite the cheering section.

“Absolutely hilarious. Well done,” wrote one fan in the comments.

Other online viewers applauded the sly mother’s so-called “bravery,” while others scolded her for taking advantage of the resort and brazenly boasting about her fete on TikTok.

“Bloody hell — you are braver than me,” championed another.

But one critic couldn’t believe she outed herself, writing, “Why would you air yourself? Some things are better left unsaid.”

“So if you can afford to go [on holiday] every month, why would you steal from the hotel like that?” scrutinized another.

“Feel sad for those people who work really hard for things and people like you just think they can cheat the system,” chided someone else.

The Post has reached out to Ramada’s parent company, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, for comment.
