While the all-inclusive resort is one of the most popular options on other islands like Jamaica, the opposite is true in Puerto Rico. Still, visitors interested in an all-inclusive stay will be able to find one 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 flare.
Those who generally oppose all-inclusive resorts may find many of Puerto Rico's all-inclusive properties a little more to their liking. Because these package often only include the price of the room and meals, guests are more likely to leave resort grounds to explore Puerto Rico's sites and attractions.
Some people love the added certainty of all-inclusive pricing. There are many reasons why these plans are popular. Among other factors, they allow you to "do it all" without having to think about what it's all costing. Click on each property to see and compare their dining options, amenities, and activities.
If you're trying to organize for some special occasion, or if you're coming with a large group, think about a group-friendly property such as Parador Joyuda Beach Hotel. Once you arrive at the Parador Joyuda Beach Hotel you'll be swept away by the scenic coastal views and soothing sounds of the surf. Additionally, the rooms are nicely decorated, well-kept, and the staff is friendly. The property is situated on Route 102 at Km. 11.7.
One noteworthy location positioned on the coast that you could consider is Hotel Parador Palmas de Lucia. The comfortable air-conditioned rooms at Hotel Parador Palmas de Lucia come with cable television, private bathroom and veranda offering excellent views of the beach or swimming pool area. The property is located at 901 Panoramic Road.
Another good choice to consider is Yunque Mar. Yunque Mar has six unique types of guestrooms available to meet a wide variety of accommodation needs and desires. What Yunque Mar really has going for it, though, are the two natural marvels that it provides to its guests- the internationally renowned Fortuna Beach that the hotel is located on and El Yunque National Park, one of the richest national parks in the world. They are situated at 6 First Street.
