The 10 Best All-Inclusive Resorts

Are you ready to splurge on the vacation of your dreams? For many individuals, couples, and families, an all-inclusive resort is the best way to budget for vacation while enjoying all the amenities you want. Leave your wallet in your suitcase because you (probably) won’t need it at one of these top all-inclusive resorts.

When you’re choosing an all-inclusive resort, you’ll notice that some are marketed to be family-friendly, while others are adults-only. Within the adults-only category, you’ll find “couples-only” resorts, where you’ll find honeymooners galore as well as other couples looking to connect with each other in an intimate setting with no kids around; adults-only, where anyone over the age of either 18 or 21 (depending on the resort’s policy) is allowed, and “lifestyle” resorts, where single adults and couples are there to enjoy each other’s company.

Whether you want an adult-only or all-ages resort, you’ll find a different vibe in every resort. Some feature lively after-hours clubs, some place an emphasis on athletics and activities, and some provide a tranquil seaside getaway where you can relax and leave the nine-to-five grind behind.

For this round-up, we’ve polled everyday vacationers and travel experts alike, along with reading tons of reviews, to find the best resorts of all types in virtually every part of the world.

When you choose your resort, you’ll want to verify if airport transfers are included or if you’ll need to pay extra for transportation to the resort. Also be sure to find out exactly what is included in the resort’s definition of “all-inclusive.” (More on that later!)

Matthew Kondrup, CTA, President and CEO of Matty K Travel Group, says, “It’s very important to read the fine print and consult a travel adviser to find the proper resort. There is no ‘one-size-fits-all.’”
