The Best Caribbean All-Inclusive Resorts Of 2016

The Caribbean is famous for its many all-inclusive resorts, which includes alcohol, meals, and an abundance of activities in the vacation packages. But some resorts are miles ahead of the rest when it comes to the quality of the accommodations and services. Based on the feedback from industry experts and frequent Caribbean travellers, we have put together a list showing the top 10 all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean.


Jade Mountain, St. Lucia
 

Rising above Anse Chastanet, its sister resort, Jade Mountain offers high rise views of the Piton Mountains, with world-class architecture that draws os St. Lucia’s untouched beauty. Each os its massive suites, known as “sanctuaries’ has only three walls, 15-foot ceilings and lovely furnishings crafted from tropical wood. Most of the suites feature infinity pools that create images of unlimited space between you and the Caribbean Sea and the Twin Pitons. However, though the open walls produce majestic views, it also means that you will be up close and personal with some of St. Lucia’s high-flying creatures. In addition to the breathtaking views, Jade Mountain also boasts a variety of island activities, including scuba diving and snorkelling in the Anse Chastanet Bay, sunset sailing and access to al of Anse Chastenet’s activities and facilities. 

Zoetry Agua Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

One on Dominican Republic’s most luxurious and tranquil all-inclusive resorts. Zoetry is surrounded by lush grounds, world-class pools, a quiet white-sand beach, and one of the best spas in the Caribbean. The all-inclusive rates cover everything from a la carte dining to top-shelf liquors at the resort’s four restaurants. Guests also have the option of ordering from the 24-hour room service menu and indulge in craft cocktails from any of the three bars. Also included in the all-inclusive package are yoga classes, horseback riding sessions per guests and laundry service.

Round Hill is by far one of the best resorts in Jamaica. The Hotel’s villas, suites and rooms — all designed by Ralph Lauren — feature terraces or balconies, coffeemakers with local Blue Mountain Coffee, bathrooms with separate tubs and rainfall showers and pillow menus. Round Hill’s first-class features include a spa with an outdoor hydrotherapy area surrounded by tropical foliage and a 24-hour infinity pool (built into a cliff edge).

The Caves, Jamaica 

Arguably the most romantic escape in Jamaica, the high-end adult-only Caves has a bohemian vibe and 11 private cottages and suites along luxuriant garden pathways and measurable seaside cliffs. The minute you set foot at the Caves, guests are greeted with the resort’s signature cocktail, the Cliffhanger, and for the rest of the stay, that are free to enjoy one of the best selections of liquor in Jamaica. Dining is also included in the all-inclusive rates; while the portions are limited, considering the hotel’s small-scale, guests continuously rave about how good the dishes are. Local, seasonal dishes dominate the creative menu, which can be enjoyed at a balmy cliff-side lounge at during breakfast and lunchtime, for dinner it's by the seaside restaurants, or — at no extra cost — at the candlelit private caves. Blackwell Rum Bar occupies another cave at the bottom of the cliffs, while clifftop bar offers outdoor drinks and authentic jerk-barbecue nights. 

Spice Island Beach Resort, Grenada

At Spice Island Beach Resort the all-inclusive rate covers all meals at the resort’s two restaurants, premium liquors, activities such as tennis, golf, sailing and kayaking and also free Wi-Fi.

It even includes scuba diving which is rarely included in all-inclusive prices at other resorts. However, it's the added romantic touches  — gazebos, fire pits and swinging chairs providing views of the Caribbean Sea — that makes Sandals LaSource distinctive.
