Why We Love All-Inclusive Resorts

Catering to all types of travelers, all-inclusive resorts let you focus on having a relaxing and memorable vacation.


Imagine a vacation where all of your needs and wants are taken care of in advance. For a growing number of travelers who would rather spend less time making decisions and more time having fun, all-inclusive resorts are an excellent option.


Fixed Price

For a fixed price, all-inclusive resorts typically provide everything necessary for a memorable, hassle-free vacation—room, meals, daily activities, nightly entertainment and more—without requiring you to open your wallet for every choice. Many of these resorts also cover gratuities for the service staff, which means tipping isn’t required (or in some cases allowed.) That means your stay comes at a predictable price, so you don’t have to worry about spending more than you can afford.



There are all-inclusive resorts that cater to families, singles, multi-generational groups, couples seeking romantic escapes without kids, and more. The Caribbean is a hotbed of inviting, all-inclusive resorts, from sun-dappled beach hideaways in Mexico to palatial hotels in the Dominican Republic. (Many are AAA Diamond-rated, an expert assessment of amenities and services.)



As interest grows in “all-inclusive” options, so do expectations about what the term means. It’s helpful to understand what’s usually not included in the fixed price: airplane fare, private dining or room service, spa treatments, and excursions that take you off resort property, such as golf or guided local tours. But there’s no universal standard.


With so many choices, it’s important to make sure the all-inclusive resort you pick is right for you. A travel consultant can help you decide by finding an all-inclusive resort that fits your interests, your budget and your expectations, leaving you free to enjoy a getaway where there’s plenty to do.
