At an all-inclusive resort, you can have a beautiful room, all the food you can eat, all you can drink, and unlimited use of onsite amenities like pools, tennis courts, gyms, and water sports equipment–all for one price! This makes for a stress-free vacation.
Of course, all-inclusive resorts range in price, and some can be pretty expensive! We believe that limited budgets shouldn’t keep you from the romantic trip of your dreams, so here is a list of 10 affordable all-inclusive resorts for adults only so you can find the perfect one without breaking the bank.
Sandals Ochi, Jamaica
Sandals Ochi in Ocho Rios is the most affordable of all the luxury adults-only all-inclusive Sandals resorts. The least expensive room here is the Great House Luxury Room, which provides easy access to the resort’s best restaurants, bars, and amenities and features a private balcony with lovely views. You’ll find Robert Mondavi wines plus a minibar stocked (and refreshed daily) with bottled water, juice, soda, and local beer.
Sandals Ochi has 11 bars (including the Caribbean’s first speakeasy), a hot new beach club, and 16 restaurants to enjoy. If you’re looking to have a good time, this is the resort for you. But don’t worry, if you’re looking for some privacy and relaxation, there are plenty of serene areas too. Green fees are included at Sandals Golf & Country Club, plus unlimited land activities, entertainment, and watersports like scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, Hobie Cat sailing, and paddleboarding.
Another plus of Sandals Resorts is that in addition to all the activities, meals, and drinks, you also get free airport transfers plus all tips and taxes included in your rate.
(FYI, you can stay at Sandals South Coast in Jamaica for just a little more. This resort has slightly better customer reviews than Sandals Ochi and is our top pick for the Best Sandals Resort for beaches, so if we were picking between the two, this would be our choice, but there are many other options to consider.)
Cocobay Resort, Antigua
Cocobay Resort is a charming affordable all-inclusive adults-only resort set on the lush Caribbean island of Antigua. Located on a hillside overlooking gorgeous Ffryes Beach on Antigua’s southwest coast, this resort offers an intimate all-inclusive experience.
