Are there any all-inclusive resorts in the continental US? Like Florida?
We don’t have a lot of time to travel for our honeymoon, so finding out if something is nearby would rock. I think all-inclusive travel websites are just too confusing to me…

Not that I know of. Wish I could be more helpful. Hopefully other bees will have something to add.

i think the US shies away from things like that.. bahamas is just 5 seconds away from Florida – why not go there? A bunch of islands, including Jamaica, are very close to Miami.

Ahh, yeah, our only reason not to go to a foreign place is because neither of us has an updated passport and we were trying to avoid the extra cost! But now thinking about it… it seems like an all inclusive would be more expensive here. hmm.

You can go to the Virgin Islands without a passport. Just a thought.
But, no, I don’t think there are all inclusive resorts in the US

Perhaps Puerto Rico? I don’t know though…but you don’t need a passport for them

I think there is 1 in Florida somewhere but the US needs to get onboard with the all-inclusive. I think they’re fabulous and you don’t need to worry about anything. But I agree with the ladies above – Bahamas, Puerto Rico, etc.

We just went to an all-inclusive resort in the bahamas a few weeks ago with some friends. I’d never been anywhere all-inclusive before, and it was AMAZING. I’d say it’s def. worth the money you are going to pay to get your passports! The drinks flow allllllllll day…… however much food you want, anytime you want it. SO worth it! Plus any activities that are included – we did the ocean kayaking and the trapeze!

Sandpiper Club Med in Florida
Very kid friendly and not cheap. They market it as a “family resort”
Seriously why is the US not on board yet?

it’s not beachy but try mohonk – doesn’t include alcohol but includes all food and activities. it reminds me of the resort in “dirty dancing”

of course there are all-inclusives in the US!
a lot of the grand, traditional old resorts always offered room plus food and drink, as the standard. like, the greenbrier in west virginia, or the mohonk mountain house in upstate new york:
or just google “all-inclusive florida” and you’ll see others.

I know a few Disney places that aren’t technically all-inclusive, but they have on-site dining, etc. Not all of them are in Disney World – Vero Beach in Florida is great, they have places all over the US. I think you have to be or know a member of their vacation club, but might be worth looking into. And if you ever stay in Disney… you could spend your whole time at the hotels/downtown and not even go to the parks. 🙂 That’s what I do. Saratoga Springs in Orlando has a full spa, golf course, multiple pools and hot tubs, casual and higher end dining.

@ nybride09: haha the resort where they filmed Dirty Dancing is about 30 minutes from here. Wonder if they do all inclusive packages?

all those classic old Dirty-Dancing-type Catskills resorts were totally all-inclusive, but i think most of them are closed now (the Concord, or Kutschers, etc).
there’s a lot in Florida.
(exxxxpensive, that one!)
also check out all-inclusives in Maine, maybe?
PS: you know, if it’s a hotel room with MAP, that means “modified American plan,” which is just breakfast and dinner. AP means “American plan,” which means all meals. so, it’s, like totally an old-school american thing.

I just wouldn’t want to do an AI here in the US. It would be twice as expensive, and not as picturesque. I mean, I live in FL and it’s lovely but you have to leave the states in my opinion.
