All-Inclusive Spring Break
Got spring fever? An exotic beach vacation can be a spring-break reality for a flat fee. While many travelers embrace the almighty all-inclusive, others shy away from the idea fearing that quality and even quirkiness will be sacrificed for one set price. Our picks for top 10 all-inclusive hotels challenge misconceptions and woo guests with great food, luxurious accommodations and an array of activities to keep you busy throughout the entire spring break.
1. Smugglers Cove (St. Lucia)
This luxury resort invites guests to do everything or do nothing. At St. Lucia's Smugglers Cove, the choices are laid out and included in the room rates. Guests can simply rest on the beach or plan a busy day of snorkeling, windsurfing, kayaking, playing tennis or just simply resting on the beach. Even green fees are covered for 3 18-hole rounds at the local St. Lucia Golf Course. The included Kids' Club entertains infants to teens with activity centers, playgrounds and a children's pool.
2. Jumby Bay (Antigua, West Indies)Lucky travelers are whisked away for a quick boat ride to Jumby Bay, a blissful paradise located 2 miles off Antigua's coast. Once there, you can ride bikes around the 300-acre enclave or enjoy old-fashioned cocktails and a game of croquet. Lounge by the seaside infinity pool or spread out on any of the 3 quiet beaches where alabaster sand stretches out to clear sapphire waters teeming with exotic fish and eagle rays. Take out a sunfish for a brisk ride out to sea, but hurry back for lobster risotto with roasted prawns at the State House. This is beachfront sophistication at its finest, all for one set price.
3. Mango Bay (St. James, Barbados)There are no worries about getting lost in the crowd at Mango Bay, a small resort with the choice amenities generally associated with larger resorts. Guests fill up just 76 rooms, each with a private balcony or patio. Daily rates cover 3 meals, a scrumptious afternoon tea and most beverages. Then there's sailing, kayaking, paddleboats, snorkeling with the sea turtles and a glass bottom boat ride along Barbados' lovely west coast.
