Picture yourself by the pool. It’s 28C and you’re sipping your second ice-cold beer – or was it your third? No worries, it’s all paid for anyway. As you wonder what's for dinner (a meal you won't have to prepare yourself, by the way), you congratulate yourself quietly: what a good decision it was to go all-inclusive this year.

If you like the sound of that, you’re not alone. All-inclusive is more popular than ever, and it’s surprisingly affordable to boot – if you know where to go. So, we’ve crunched the numbers at TravelSupermarket HQ to reveal the top ten cheapest all-inclusive destinations for summer 2022.

*Please note: Before booking your trip, check the FCDO advice  for your destination and make sure you're comfortable with the T&Cs of your holiday operator.

1. Sunny Beach, Bulgaria

Bulgaria’s Sunny Beach has long been known for its affordable prices (it’s been crowned the best value destination four years running in the Post Office’s Holiday Money Report). In 2022, you can expect more of the same – especially if you go all-inclusive. The Black Sea resort is your quintessential ‘fun in the sun’ destination, with a long and lovely 8km (5 miles) sandy beach, watersports including banana boats and parasailing, and plenty places to party the night away.

Though you might be tempted to stay resort-side on an all-inclusive holiday, it’s worth leaving your sun-lounger for a day trip or two. Historic Nessebar, protected by UNESCO for its trove of ancient Greek and Byzantine architecture, is around 5km (3 miles) away. Or organise a 4x4 tour to explore the mountains that back the beautiful bay.

2. Majorca, Spain

Great value all-inclusive deals and good weather come standard in Majorca, and there’s plenty of choice if you’re just looking for a pool to flop next to for a week. As for picking up a bargain, if you’re able to travel outside of the school holidays, May and late September see the best deals. Travel during this shoulder season and you’ll also be able to avoid usual summer crowds.

Not sure where to stay? It can be a tough decision: Majorca has as much variety in its towns as it does its hotels. Magaluf favours the party crowd, while Puerto Pollensa and Alcudia are great for families. Cala d’Or and Cala Millor are great for low-key holidays or, to really get off the beaten track, try one of these quiet towns in Majorca.

3. Fuerteventura, Spain

Tenerife might pull the crowds but join them at your peril – according to our data, Fuerteventura is the Canary Island to choose for a cheap all-inclusive break this summer. And if it’s sand you’re after, you can hardly do better. Fuerteventura has miles of the stuff, with beautiful, golden beaches wrapped right around the island. Watersports are Fuerteventura’s bag (think all types of surfing, stand-up paddleboarding and diving), though you’ll also find lounger-lined stretches, family-friendly waves and plenty of quiet, unspoilt spots.

When it comes to Fuerteventura’s resorts, choose Caleta de Fuste if you’re travelling with little ones, Corralejo for top nightlife, Gran Tarajal for romance and a little peace and quiet, or Morro Jable for a mix of it all.

4. Marrakech, Morocco

An all-inclusive holiday to Marrakech might defy your expectations. A city of colour and chaos, you’re more likely to find luxury riads in the snaking streets of the medina than sprawling resorts. Instead, you’ll find your all-inclusive getaway in Palmeraie, an oasis of a neighbourhood about 20 minutes from the city centre.

That’s not to say you’ll miss experiencing the vibrant Red City if you stay outside the centre – many resorts offer free shuttle services to the medina for the best of both worlds. Once there, you can dive right into the throng – whether that’s getting your haggle on in the busy souks, marvelling at magnificent palaces and stumbling upon unexpected calm in the city’s gardens – then retreat to your resort for a cocktail by the pool.

5. Costa Dorada, Spain

The Costa Dorada is classic Spain. Barcelona is here, for a start, as are miles of golden beaches, tons of tapas joints, and some of the country’s best wineries (cava is the specialty).

You’ll have a good range of options for great-value all-inclusive breaks, too. Chilled Cambrils, lively Sitges and lovely Calafell are all great choices, as are Salou and La Pineda. Base yourself at either if you’re travelling with the family: PortAventura World, the home of Ferrari Land as well as a theme and water park, is less than ten minutes’ drive from both resorts. If you fancy exploring beyond the sand in these parts, a coastal path spans for 6.5km from Pilons to Cape Salou, taking in secluded beaches and craggy coves along the way.

6. Marmaris, Turkey

It won’t take long to realise why this part of Turkey is dubbed the ‘Turquoise Coast’. All the clichés of the Mediterranean ring true around here: yes, the beaches stretch out for miles; yes, the water is that blue; and yes, it really does sparkle.

And if you want plenty of choice on your all-inclusive Turkish getaway, coastal Marmaris is a hard one to beat. The city has a big range of hotels and resorts, both along the waterfront and within its maze of streets, as well as a huge beach that reaches right around to neighbouring resort, Icmeler, about 10km away. For kids, there’s a handful of waterparks, though adults may prefer a ferry adventure over to the Greek island of Rhodes (bring your passport).

7. Gran Canaria, Spain

Gran Canaria needs no introduction as an all-inclusive holiday destination: travellers have been flocking to its shores for decades. It’s hardly a surprise as there’s so much variety here – capital Las Palmas is biggest city in the Canaries; the island’s beaches range from the lounger-and-watersports variety to empty, untouched swathes; and a lush interior hides dramatic landscapes ideal for exploring.

The island’s hotels are worth writing home about, too. You’ll find a great selection in the south coast resorts of Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas, though quieter areas such as Puerto Mogan and the swish town of Meloneras also have good options. Some of Gran Canaria’s best beaches are also in the south, if you’re looking to swap a day by your hotel’s pool for one by sand and sea.

8. Benidorm, Spain

For great all-inclusive deals on Spain’s Costa Blanca, it’s got to be Benidorm. With two long beaches and well-established resorts ranging from the wallet-friendly to the utterly opulent, you won’t want for choice in this package holiday mecca.

Not quite for you? Try elsewhere on the Costa Blanca – it’s a classic summer destination for more than one reason. Sun-drenched beaches lapped by the Med, laidback resorts perfect for families, legendary nightlife, shopping, restaurants and even a little luxury… holidays here have got the lot.

The region’s other popular resorts include Alicante and Calpe, although if you’re after a budget deal outside Benidorm, you may be better off choosing a self-catering stay.

9. Antalya, Turkey

Antalya is the gateway to the Turkish Riviera, and whether you decide to stay in the city itself or venture into the wider Antalya region to the likes of Lara Beach, Side or Alanya, you’ll find an upmarket vibe that matches the moniker. Expect yacht-filled marinas, boutique shopping, and plenty of beaches, including pretty Kleopatra Beach (named after the Egyptian queen who is said to have swum here).

For history buffs, there’s the imposing 13th-century Alanya Castle, and a trove of ancient Greek ruins in Side, Perge and Olympos. If hitting the green is more your thing, Belek, about a 30-minute drive from the airport, is undoubtedly the region’s golfing hub.

10. Lanzarote, Spain

Lanzarote packs in a lot for its size, with a fringe of golden beaches that belie the otherworldly landscape within. Popular resorts for an all-inclusive holiday include Puerto del Carmen, Playa Blanca and Costa Teguise – all which offer those lovely sands and competitive prices. However, this is an island worth leaving your sun-lounger for. A tour of the dramatic Timanfaya National Park won’t be easily forgotten, nor will the César Manrique-designed Jameos del Agua, an underground culture hub complete with a restaurant, bar and pool. 

For wine lovers, Lanzarote is one of the best producers in the Canaries. Go to winemaking region, La Geria for a tour of the volcanic vineyards and a sample of the good stuff.
