This is a big question that I used to get very often 10 years ago, but not as much now. Most people choose an adults only all inclusive resort, when they want a special romantic ambiance added to their vacation. Adult only resorts eliminate many problems that you might have an ordinary all inclusive resort. You won't have your candlelit dinner disturbed by a crying baby. You won't have to cover your drink at the swim up pool bar, because a teenager has perfected their cannonball. Please don't get me wrong. I love babies and most teenagers, but i just choose not to vacation with them every time. We especially recommend adults only resorts when you are taking a special vacation, for example, all inclusive honeymoons, all inclusive weddings, all inclusive anniversaries, vow renewals and engagement trips. Because these resorts are so popular for special occasions, you'll see they dominate our lists of Top 10 all inclusive honeymoon resorts and our Top 10 Caribbean wedding resorts.
When Honeymoons, Inc. started in 1997, you had Sandals Resorts and Couples Resorts. Both are all inclusive resorts for couples only. These 2 resort chains were the pioneers of the romantic all inclusive honeymoon resorts. Both companies started with resorts in Jamaica. Sandals Resorts can now be found in Antigua, the Bahamas, Barbados, Grenada and St Lucia.
Following their lead, many quality all inclusive resort chains have jumped in to the adults only all inclusive marketplace. If you are looking for a nice resort, you can also check out Iberostar Grand Resorts, Hard Rock Hotels, El Dorado Resorts, Palace Resorts and Excellence Resorts. On the more affordable end, you can also now find adults only all inclusive resorts that are part of Occidental Resorts and Riu Resorts. Riu is actually opening the first adults only resort in Aruba on October 11th, 2014.
You will pay a premium for an adults only all inclusive resort, but they are worth it. Remember that from our adults only resort page you can see prices for only these resorts. If you want to see how they compare to other resorts, just go to the home page or the destination page. We currently have 16 destinations that have adults only. You could also say 18, because we lump Cancun, Isla Mujeres and the Riviera Maya together as one destination. Cancun and the Riviera Maya along with Jamaica and Punta Cana have the bulk of adults only all inclusive resort inventory. If you want to compare prices at these destinations, just put in your dates on these 4 pages:
- Cancun Honeymooons
- Jamaica Honeymoons
- Punta Cana Honeymoons
