Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts are constantly raising the bar on the all-inclusive vacation experience. As USA Today notes, gone are the days when an all-inclusive vacation was “synonymous with a bargain-basement getaway.” Instead, you can now expect the finest accommodations and amenities, while also having the luxury to accurately budget the full cost of your vacation before arriving. During every Luxury Included® Vacation at Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts, you can experience elite accommodations, gourmet dining at up to 19 restaurants, unlimited premium brand liquor, an array of land and water sports, entertainment and more, all at no cost.
In their recent article "Best Caribbean All-Inclusive Resorts," USA Today rounded up some of their favorite vacation destinations in the Caribbean. Both Sandals Royal Plantation, Ocho Rios, Jamaica and Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa made this expert list. Read below to see why they include these Luxury Included® resorts among the best.
Sandals Royal Plantation, Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Ever since the 1970s, Jamaica has nurtured and refined the all-inclusive resort experience, with a variety of brands elevating the experience by introducing luxe amenities and features. One resort stands apart from the rest — Sandals Royal Plantation. Guests will have to pinch themselves to be reminded they're at an all-inclusive resort and not a five-star hotel like a Ritz-Carlton or St. Regis. This adults-only Ocho Rios resort is perched above the ocean overlooking some intimate, pocket-sized beaches. The ambience at Royal Plantation is that of being at an impressive estate, which is amplified by such perks as personal butler service and the C-Bar Caviar + Champagne venue. Guests also have the option of complimentary golf at the nearby Sandals Golf & Country Club.
Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa
Families will find themselves in vacation overdrive when they book a stay at Beaches Turks & Caicos. The resort is on a 12-mile stretch of white sand beach. The littlest kids will be enthralled by activities and performances by Sesame Street characters, including fan favorites Elmo and Cookie Monster. Teenagers have their own private disco, Liquid at Beaches. The whole family will enjoy the resort's Xbox 360 Game Garage and the resort's 45,000-square-foot water park featuring a SurfStream simulator. The resort comprises three villages replicating the ambience of Italy, France and the Caribbean; with restaurants to match.
