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.

Active tennis players often like the idea of staying at Ritz-Carlton Dorado Beach, since they have some excellent on-site tennis courts. The property consists of 100 guestrooms and 14 suites with one bedroom. All rooms and suits are located right on the beach, but if you're looking for a really special getaway, book your stay at Su Casa, the original plantation building which features 1920s decor and serves as a four bedroom villa. You can find them at 100 Dorado Beach Drive.
One place positioned on the water's edge worth considering is Copamarina Beach Resort.
