You’ll never find yourself hungry, thirsty or bored at these all-inclusive resorts. The overflowing buffets, open bars and five-star restaurants offer some serious bang for your buck. But throw in the kids’ clubs, spas and championship golf courses, and there’s no reason not to choose all-inclusive vacations. Our resorts run the gamut from from thrifty to luxurious, and from romantic, adults-only properties to the seriously family friendly. And since you pay for your room, meals, activities, taxes, tips and entertainment all up front, you’ve basically got no choice but to kick back, relax, and have a cerveza.
Pool days, buffets and plenty of adult beverages—there’s no way to make a getaway any better. Actually, we do have one idea: make it all-inclusive. Get the most out of your next trip with all-inclusive vacation packages, and leave your worries behind. Wake up to fresh coffee (and maybe even breakfast in bed) and fall asleep after a night at the buffet. During the day, you’ll be lounging like you don’t have a care in the world—because you won’t.
With all-inclusive vacations, you get all of the fun, with none of that pesky planning. Your every wish is taken care of before you even know you’ve had it. All-inclusive vacations with airfare take even more planning off your plate. With our low prices and many airline options, you’ll always find the perfect seat. Have more questions? We’ll answer them below.
Q: What's included in my bill?
A: Costs are spelled out in our vacation package descriptions. They include airfare, accommodations, meals and listed activities. All taxes are included as well, along with resort fees and—best of all—gratuities. You can stash your plastic and cash the moment you arrive and never see menu prices or bar tabs.
Q: How can I save more on all-inclusive vacations?
A: Book your flight and hotel together. Orbitz gives you access to discounted rates that you wouldn't see booking separately. Plus, we'll show you how much you'll save.
Q: Can I leave the resort?
A: Just because you're staying at an all-inclusive doesn't mean you can't explore your surroundings. Most packages include tours of the area or shuttles to nearby attractions. And most resorts have concierges who can help you choose additional expeditions geared to your interests. Since you're not paying each time you dine, you're free to use your discretionary cash to zip over the treetops on a jungle canopy tour, climb ancient pyramids or wander through local villages.
Q: Can I dine or use facilities at nearby resorts?
A: Most resorts have enough activities and dining options to satisfy relaxed vacationers. But if you have wanderlust in your soul, several all-inclusive resorts offer privileges at nearby properties so you can explore new restaurants, beaches, spas and destinations whenever you wish. On Jamaica, for example, Sandals offers shuttles between its Ocho Rios properties.
Q: What if I want an all-inclusive vacation without kids?
A: Choose an adults-only resort, which only allow guests 18 and older. Secrets, Sandals and Excellence have adults-only properties. Some emphasize fun, while others offer seclusion, serenity and fabulous spas.
