The Cayman Islands are filled with treasures of all kinds, but all-inclusive resorts are not plentiful here. Still, it's worth the search if all-inclusives fit your style. These resorts offer everything that you'd expect from a high class resort and also include food, drinks, and sometimes activities in the price.

Unlike other resorts, all-inclusives do not offer separate meal or diving packages; instead, meals and some activities (like diving) are included with the price of the room. This can be a savings for people who do not want to travel to a restaurant for each meal, or who wish to participate in the activities included in their resort stay.

This type of resort vacation is also relaxing for travelers who want to lounge by the beach without worrying about carrying a wallet or money. Leaving your wallet behind can be a truly freeing experience if your main vacation goal is to forget about your worries. At an all-inclusive, you do not need to be concerned about additional charges to your bill. Plus, knowing the total price of your vacation ahead of time can help you budget well in advance.

On the other hand, the drawbacks of all-inclusives are a popular subject for those who object to all-inclusive resorts. Some say that all-inclusives discourage vacationers from exploring the island. Such resorts include everything most travelers will need, meaning that it requires extra effort to go out on the town to experience local cuisine and culture.

The Options

Some travelers seek the convenience of an all-inclusive price. There are many explanations why these plans are successful. For instance, they let you dodge the need to develop a detailed budget. Navigate each of them to get the most information on amenities, activities, food, and more.

Avid tennis players will often enjoy booking their stay at Wyndam Reef Resort Grand Cayman, as they have some nice tennis courts. This is the only full service, all beachfront, all-inclusive resort in the Cayman Islands, where every guest is provided with a great view of the private beach, and every guest experiences quiet seclusion that isn't available in the more crowded parts of Grand Cayman. Unlike resorts where "one size fits all," they offer a variety of different packages, which can be tailored to your needs, including standard, room-only options, dive-only options, and all-inclusive packages that include meals, drinks, and use of snorkel gear, kayaks and paddle-boards. They're located at 1 Queens Highway, on Grand Cayman.

One place located on the ocean with excellent views of the water is Cobalt Coast Resort & Suites. The Cayman Islands is known as one of the best dive locations in the world, and Cobalt Coast has been voted by guests and readers of Rodale's Scuba Diving Magazine as the best resort and dive staff in the world. Conveniently located near some of the best snorkeling and diving waters on the island, even guests who aren't interested in diving will soon be sucked in to the beauty of the sport. They're at 18 Sea Fan Dr., on Grand Cayman.

Another property worth considering is Southern Cross Club. A collection of 14 charming cottages overlooking South Hole Sound makes up the accommodations here. If you have questions and want to call before you go, do so at (800) 899-2582.
