10 all-inclusive Caribbean holiday deals for all budgets

October 25, 2019

By Tamara Hinson

All-inclusive pretty much comes as standard in the Caribbean. To help put this dreamy part of the world within reach, we’ve rounded up the best deals for the region's most popular destinations.

So, whether you're a fan of five-star St Lucia hotels or family-friendly resorts in the Dominican Republic, we've got the perfect package for you.

*All deal pricing below is accurate as of October 25, 2019. Prices are subject to change. Deals are subject to the partners’ T&Cs.

Budget resorts in the Caribbean

1. Cuba: Memories Jibacoa Resort

This fantastic deal includes ten nights at the gorgeous Memories Jibacoa Resort, an adults-only retreat where hacienda-inspired decor and quaint, low-rise buildings give the property the feel of a boutique hotel.

It's also a great example of an all-inclusive resort which doesn't cost the earth. But don't think you'll be compromising on quality – there are four restaurants (including a buffet-style option) to check out, along with several pool and beach bars.

Feeling guilty about overindulging? Head to the fitness centre or tennis courts, or to the beach, where you can try a wide range of water sports.

2. Dominican Republic: Tropical Princess Beach Resort and Spa

This is one of the best Dominican Republic deals you'll find – ten nights at the pretty Tropical Princess Beach Resort and Spa, a super popular Punta Cana hotel.

The property has three restaurants and three bars, and you'll be able to try out a range of water sports – all guests get a free, one-hour introductory scuba lesson in the hotel's pool, and there are various non-motorised water sports to try.

Feeling lucky? There's a free shuttle to the nearby Bávaro Princess resort, which has one of the Dominican Republic's largest casinos.

3. Dominican Republic: Occidental Caribe

Although this resort has 798 rooms, it feels much smaller, with plenty of quiet corners and an unbeatable location - metres away from the Arena Golda Beach, considered one of the Dominican Republic's best.

A popular hotel with foodies, there are seven restaurants to chose from (we suggest starting with Via Veneto, for hearty Italian classics made with the freshest ingredients) and several fantastic bars.

The leisure facilities are also some of the best on the island, with two lagoon-style pools, an enormous fitness centre (complete with rock climbing wall and trapeze area) and a water sports centre which offers lessons in everything from diving to sailing.

Mid-range resorts in the Caribbean

4. Jamaica: Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort & Spa

A chic spa hotel famous for its enormous beds (these things are almost the size of a small island!), this stunning property is beautiful even by Caribbean standards.

Even the restaurants are breathtaking – you can feast on Italian, Mexican, Asian, Indian and Creole-Jamaican cuisines here. But for sheer spectacle, it's got to be Sumptuori: a Japanese restaurant where your dinner is cooked before your eyes.

Add to that one of the largest swimming pools on the island and some of the roomiest entry-level rooms of any Montego Bay hotel, and the only downside is that, at some point, you'll have to check out.

5. The Bahamas: Breezes Resort and Spa Bahamas

If views are of the utmost importance, snap up this deal for ten nights at the Bahamas' Breezes Resort and Spa – spectacular doesn’t come close.

Your room will look onto either lush gardens of tropical flowers or out over the endless blue of the Caribbean Sea. Meanwhile, the beach – which is, of course, gorgeous – is just a few metres from the hotel.

Another major selling point is the range of dining options – the five restaurants include Eden, where you can eat in a magical garden setting, and the laidback Reggae Café, with its hearty burgers and colourful cocktails.

6. Jamaica: Holiday Inn Resort Montego Bay

This beautiful resort is at the heart of the island's liveliest neighbourhood, Montego Bay – but still only a 10-minute drive from the airport.

Other nearby attractions include the Martha Brae River, Dunn’s River Falls and Rose Hall Great House. Perfect for families, the children's activity centre has a packed calendar of activities, and five on-site restaurants cater to a wide range of tastes.

There’s also an amusement park nearby, as well as two typically stunning Caribbean beaches in Doctor’s Cave and Walter Fletcher.

7. Dominican Republic: Dreams Palm Beach Punta Cana

One thing's for sure – you'll never get bored at this beachfront Punta Cana paradise. It’s got to be one of the Dominican Republic's top all-inclusive resorts.

You'll struggle to find a property where you get more bang for your buck. There are kids' club for both pre-teens and teenagers, regular themed parties and a huge range of activities on offer, all included as standard.

Popping the question soon? This place is very popular for weddings; there's an eye-popping range of packages available, including ones which have rehearsal dinners.

Luxury resorts in the Caribbean

8. Saint Lucia: Sandals Halcyon Beach

If you’re after pure luxury, this is the hotel for you.

Halcyon Beach feels wonderfully private yet it still offering a fantastic range of activities and amenities to keep you busy. Eating out won’t be a problem, either: You'll be able to dine at 27 restaurants – six on-site, and the rest at the two Sandals' resorts nearby – and toast your getaway at seven bars.

As you’d expect, everything feels rather sophisticated here, whether it's the unlimited Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee, the inclusion of premium spirits (often excluded from all-inclusive packages) or the opportunity to dine with your loved one at a candle-lit table on the beach.

9. Dominican Republic: Paradisus Palma Real Golf and Spa Resort

Not only does this is place have one of best all-inclusive golf resorts in the Caribbean, it's also got one of the region’s best spas, too. In fact, book a treatment at the Oriental Garden Spa and you'll struggle to tear yourself away – the enormous spa area is truly spectacular, with a series of palm-fringed lagoons and a menu of traditional Balinese treatments.

Keen for the green? Tee off can with a complimentary green fee at the nearby world-class Cocotal Golf Course, designed by legendary golf course architect Jose Gancedo.

When it's time to eat, head to one of the resort's speciality restaurants, including Vento for traditional Spanish fare, Bana for Japanese or Passion for a menu curated by Michelin-starred chef Martín Berasategui.

10. Barbados: Sandals Royal Barbados

There's a reason Sandals' flagship Barbados property has the word "royal" in the title. Everything about this breathtaking resort screams decadence – it's one of Sandals' few all-suites resorts, and lays claim to a number of firsts, including the brand's first rooftop pool and bar, first bowling alley and first doughnut restaurant.

Don't panic about those extra calories either – the mind-boggling range of activities, including PADI dive courses, snorkelling and wakeboarding, provides ample opportunity to burn them off.
