Sun, surf, sand. Florida has the three S’s in spades, which makes it the ideal getaway when you’re looking for some big-time rest and relaxation. Reduce your stress levels even further during your Sunshine State vacation by staying at an all-inclusive resort, where everything is part of the pay-one-price package. Here are six of the best all-inclusive resorts in Florida — so start digging out those flip-flops!
Bungalows Key Largo — Key Largo
Opened in December, Bungalows Key Largo is the first all-inclusive property to open in the Florida Keys. Highlights of the adults-only beachfront property include luxury suites with outdoor soaking tubs, loaner bikes, scenic sunset cruises, a tiki bar, a full-service spa with individual cabanas, and three restaurants.
Club Med Sandpiper Bay — Port St. Lucie
Sandpiper Bay, Club Med’s only U.S. property, is located in Port St. Lucie on Florida’s east coast. It’s all about the activities here — golf, beach volleyball, tennis, sailing, kayaking, trapeze, and yoga are a sampling of what’s offered. Need a break? Chill out with a beer or piña colada at the pool bar, where you can take in the sunset.
Sirata Beach Resort — St. Petersburg
St. Petersburg’s Sirata Beach Resort has an all-inclusive option, providing everything you’ll need for a stress-free beach vacation. After a dip in the ocean, play beach volleyball and go boogie-boarding. Come sundown, sip a margarita in the Rum Runner Bar before settling into a dinner of cornmeal-dusted Florida grouper.
Little Palm Island — Little Torch Key
Little Palm Island, a romantic hideaway on a private island in the Keys (accessible only by boat and seaplane) offers a plan that includes a stay in a thatched-roof bungalow, three meals, and extras like yacht transfers and a bottle of Champagne.
Key West, named on Fodor’s 2019 Go List, is a less than an hour’s drive away.
Hilton Sandestin Beach — Miramar Beach
Hilton Sandestin Beach is located along the South Walton coast, recently named a 2019 hotspot by National Geographic. The resort typically offers an adults-only, all-inclusive package during the summer, which — in addition to the room, all meals, and unlimited drinks — includes welcome perks like valet parking.
Disney Hotels — Orlando
To make things easier and more affordable for families when traveling to Disney World, the Orlando theme park giant typically offers a free dining plan when a five-night package at select Disney hotels is purchased (for summer travel; includes park tickets). The plan features two meals and two snacks per day, per person.
