While the all-inclusive resort is one of the most popular options on other islands like Jamaica, the opposite is true in Puerto Rico. Visitors interested in an all-inclusive stay will be able to find just a few options on the island.

Many vacationers feel that all-inclusive resorts are a great deal. After all, you pay one set price for all of your food and entertainment, so you know exactly how much to budget for that portion of the trip before you even leave home. It's a weight off many traveler's shoulders, and helps to take away some of the pressure of pre-vacation planning. However, vacationers should keep in mind that each resort has different definitions of "all inclusive." Check with the individual resort to see what they include in their price.

Others feel that all of the in-resort activities and meals detract from the experience of visiting a Caribbean island. With so many other tourists and planned activities, all-inclusives make some people feel that they are actually missing out on something. Getting a true taste of Puerto Rican culture would certainly be more difficult without stepping outside of the resort's confines. Likewise, the resort's menu would probably have little local flair.

Puerto Rico doesn't urrently have any all inclusive resorts operated by one of hte major international chains that specialize in this style of accommodation.  This will eventually change, once the Dreams Puerto Rico Resort & Spa opens in the coastal town of Guánica.  When construction is completed on this planned 250-room property (curently explected to be October 2018), it will be a first-of-a-kind for the island.

In the meantime, even those who generally aren't interested in an all-inclusive resort will find of Puerto Rico's existing hotels offfer their own variation on the all-inclusive concept.  Some local hotels offer packages that include the price of the room and meals; however, guests may not find a complete array of other amenities included in the price.  Of course, if they leave the hotel grounds and explore Puerto Rico's many museums, historical sites and other landmarks as well as its many other interesting attractions, guests will find more than enough free and low-cost options to keep themselves fully occupied during their vacation.

The Junior Suite has the addition of a living room and larger bathroom, while the One Bedroom Suite has a living room with a sofa bed, and a king-sized bed in the bedroom. The property is located at 170 Candelero Drive.

One place on the water's edge to consider is Parador Joyuda Beach Hotel.

Additionally, the rooms are nicely decorated, well-kept, and the staff is friendly. You will be able to find them on Route 102 at Km. 11.7.
