9 European Destinations With All-Inclusive Resorts

Here in the States, we often think of the Caribbean and Mexico when we’re talking about all-inclusive resorts. After all, the region is filled with them! If you’re a big all-inclusive fan, and you feel like you’ve been there, done that -- fret not. Europe happens to be a hot spot for all-inclusive resorts, too. Read on to find out nine destinations across the continent where you can take your next all-inclusive vacation. Just be sure to keep in mind that many European hotels offer different rates for room-only, half-board, and full-board options -- double check that you're booking the right package!

1. Canary Islands, Spain

H10 Costa Adeje Palace/Oyster

Even though they’re located off the coast of Africa, the Canary Islands are technically part of Europe -- Spain, to be exact. This seven-island archipelago experiences beautiful weather year round, with the temperature hardly ever dipping below 60 degrees Fahrenheit at night, even in winter. You might consider this the Caribbean of Europe!

2. Greece

Ikaros Beach Resort & Spa/Oyster

The many islands of Greece are popular vacation destinations on their own, but did you know they have dozens of all-inclusive resorts? A good number of them can be found on the islands of Rhodes and Crete, but if you do some research, you can find all-inclusives on many other islands (including Santorini!). 

Our All-Inclusive Hotel Pick:

3. Puglia, Italy

Vivosa Apulia Resort/Oyster

This region is the “heel” of Italy’s “boot,” and it’s a popular vacation destination among Italians. Not only does it have sandy beaches, but it also has charming historic towns, a rolling countryside, and even its own wine region. We predict this region is going to be Italy’s trendiest destination, so book soon!

Our All-Inclusive Hotel Pick:

4. The Algarve, Portugal

The Algarve/Oyster

Portugal’s southernmost region is a beachgoer’s dream destination, between the azure waters, the dramatic cliffs, and the seaside towns. Lucky for the all-inclusive lover, there are plenty that dot the shores. Oh, and did we mention the Algarve gets a reported 300 days of sunshine a year?

Our All-Inclusive Hotel Pick:

5. Sicily, Italy

Baia Samuele Hotel Villagio/Oyster

The Mediterranean’s largest island not only has great beaches, but also has charming seaside towns, historic archaeological sites, and a wine culture all its own. While all-inclusive resorts aren’t the most prevalent type of lodging, you can find properties across the entire island.

Our All-Inclusive Hotel Pick:

6. Malta

Radisson Blu Resort & Spa, Malta Golden Sands/Oyster

This small island nation off the coast of Sicily is known for its diverse activities, from visiting the ruins of its former rulers (including the Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Normans, French, and British, to name a few) to scuba diving in its azure waters. Visitors can enjoy a cuisine that mixes Sicilian and and Middle Eastern flavors, due to Malta’s southern location in the Mediterranean sea.

Our All-Inclusive Hotel Pick:

7. Balearic Islands

Hospes Maricel Mallorca & Spa/Oyster

This Spanish archipelago in the Mediterranean has four major islands (Majorca, Minorca, Ibiza, and Formentera), and you can find all-inclusive resorts on each of them. Each island has its own personality: Ibiza, of course, is known for its partying; Majorca is the largest island and offers everything from beaches to mountains to a historic Old Town; Minorca is the quieter version of Majorca (and its calm, shallow waters make it a perfect retreat for families); and Formentera exudes a remote serenity.

Our All-Inclusive Hotel Pick:

8. Croatia

Valamar Isabella Hotel/Oyster

Did you know that Croatia has over 3,600 miles of coastline? As such, you’ll find beaches, coves, islands, and amazing seafood here. Most of the all-inclusive resorts won’t be found in the popular city of Dubrovnik, rather, you’ll have to head up north to the Istrian peninsula, where they’re concentrated, though all-inclusives are sprinkled across the country.

Our All-Inclusive Hotel Pick:

9. Sardinia, Italy

Hotel Pitrizza, a Luxury Collection Hotel Smeralda/Oyster

One of Mediterranean’s beachiest islands, Sardinia has a number of all-inclusive hotels if you’re looking for some sun and sand. Like many other Mediterranean islands, you’ll find plenty of ancient sites here, and if you’ve had enough of the beach, you can head inland to the mountains, too.
