What a Week-Long All-Inclusive Vacation Costs in Top Destinations

See recent posts by Lara Grant

All-inclusive resorts run the gamut, from intimate properties with high-end facilities to cheap hotels with a party atmosphere. Whether in lush St. Lucia or more-developed Cancun, all-inclusive also vary in price, making them suitable for well-heeled honeymooners or budget-minded bachelorette groups. To help you get a feel for how much a week-long all-inclusive resort stay costs, we’ve plugged in May Saturday-to-Saturday travel dates in seven top destinations throughout the Caribbean and Mexico. Here’s what it costs for two adults to have a week-long stay in entry-level rooms across three price categories: luxury, mid-range, and budget. The average cost is $2,910 for a week’s stay, but you can find much cheaper options when you choose a budget resort. 

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Punta Cana is a very popular destination in the Dominican Republic, offering some of the prettiest white-sand beaches in the Caribbean, warm weather year-round, and notoriously friendly staff. The town is mostly made up of large mega-resorts where tourists hole up and spend their days lounging and drinking (this is especially easy to do at the numerous all-inclusive properties). Rates are reasonable across the board, so travelers can easily find a hotel that suits their budget.

  • Luxury: Zoetry Agua Punta Cana is a romantic, quiet, and all-inclusive property along a beautiful, uncrowded beach. The 96 spacious suites have butler service, outdoor spaces, and impressive bathrooms. Unlimited dining, top-shelf drinking, and many activities are part of the rate. A week here will run about $2,972.

  • Mid-range: The lively, 658-room Catalonia Punta Cana Golf & Casino Resort is an all-inclusive hotel on pretty Bavaro Beach. It has contemporary decor, plenty of bars and eateries, non-motorized water sports, and evening entertainment. Seven nights here in a lower-category Junior Suite will cost $1,025.

  • Budget: Attracting a young, international crowd looking to party, the whala!bavaro is a dirt-cheap hotel with poor food but also clean rooms, three pools, and a location that’s close to the beach and bars. An all-inclusive stay here will cost about $574 for a week.

Cancun, Mexico

Cancun has it all: beautiful beaches abutting turquoise waters, ample nightlife opportunities, great snorkeling, and easy access to Mayan ruins. Sure, it’s known for party-hearty spring breakers, but there are also many hotel options for serene stays. Plus, given the downtown area, nearby attractions, and prevalent English, it’s easy to explore areas outside the resort grounds.

  • Luxury: Couples seeking a romantic stay will find the adults-only Excellence Playa Mujeres a good pick, thanks to its private resort community setting, luxe rooms with big whirlpool tubs, seven pools, multiple restaurants and bars, and high-end spa. Expect seven nights to cost around $4,988.

  • Mid-range: The beachfront Hotel Riu Cancun is a kid-friendly all-inclusive resort in the central part of the Hotel Zone. Buffet and a la carte restaurants, several bars (including a 24-hour sports bar), multiple pools, a spa, and kids’ club keep guests of all ages occupied. A week-long stay costs around $2014.

  • Budget: The Oasis Palm Hotel is a family-friendly, Mexican-themed beach resort with extensive facilities — including several dining outlets, a large pool, and kids’ activities — but underwhelming rooms. A week’s stay here costs $1,335.

Travelers heading to Jamaica are generally interested in experiencing a bit of the local culture, which some Caribbean destinations tend to lack. Beautiful beaches and cliffs, delicious conch and jerk chicken, ubiquitous reggae performances, standout service, and convenient direct flights from many major cities make Jamaica a favorite Caribbean island.

  • Luxury: Located on a serene sandy beach, the Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay provides a beautiful, adults-only experience within easy reach of the airport. A plethora of restaurants, bars, outdoor activities, pools, and wellness facilities ensure guests have everything they need at their fingertips. Seven nights here costs $5.356.

On the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula, Los Cabos encompasses three districts: the historic and more cultural San Jose del Cabo, resort-filled Cabo San Lucas, and The Corridor, which is the highway that connects the two.

  • Budget: A good option for party-minded travelers, the Posada Real Los Cabos has live music every night, a prime beach spot, swim-up bar, and buffet meals. Although breakfast-only rates are available, all-inclusive rates for seven nights are a great value at $911.

St. Lucia

A combination of gorgeous mountainous terrain and pretty beaches makes St. Lucia an excellent pick for those who love hiking as much as lounging on the sand. Ample water activities, tasty Creole cuisine, and an underdeveloped feel add to this beautiful island’s appeal. All-inclusive resorts aren’t as numerous here as previously mentioned locales, especially not in the budget to mid-range class, but there are still options for various prices.

  • Luxury: Providing incredible views of the island’s famous Pitons, Jade Mountain Resort is a romantic adults-only (16 and over) property. Each of the 29 large rooms has an open wall and (in all but the entry-level category) a private plunge pool. Impressive dining, a spa, and free daily yoga add value. Seven nights on the all-inclusive rate costs about $9,570.

Mid-range: Although an upscale property, the quiet Anse Chastanet Resort is in the middle of the pack for all-inclusive pricing in St. Lucia. It has 49 colorful rooms, top-notch restaurants that use fresh ingredients grown on-site, an abundance of activities, and a pretty spa. A week-long stay here on their all-inclusive plan will cost two adults about $4,375.

  • Budget: The Coconut Bay Beach & Spa Resort sits on a beautiful stretch of beach that’s ideal for kitesurfing, and is divided into an adults-only and family-friendly section.

A quick hour-long flight from Miami, the Bahamas is a colorful destination with white-sand beaches, legal gambling, welcoming locals, and world-class scuba diving, but not many all-inclusive resorts.
