One of the perks of picking an all-inclusive resort on St. Lucia is that the island is so new to the phenomenon that it offers them in fine-tuned perfection. At the same time, St. Lucia is not so overrun by all-inclusives you can't get away from their warmly-calculated pampering when you want to.
There are only a handful all-inclusive resorts on St. Lucia and, with the notable exceptions of the Coconut Bay Resort and Spa in Vieux Fort and Sugar Beach, a Viceroy Resort in Soufrière, all are located at the northwest end of the island, scattered between the urban center of the Castries and its rural neighbor Gros Islet. Most resorts are family-friendly with package variations for couples, singles, and seniors.
While prices may seem high, travelers should take into account all that is included in these packages. Food, lodging, entertainment, and transportation are usually a part of the price of such resorts, and it can be difficult to find a better deal.
There is little these resorts do not offer. Many have multiple in-house restaurants ranging from fine dining with elegant and sophisticated surroundings to informal seafood buffets awash in tropical regalia. In addition to the standard entertainments of tennis, volleyball, guided tours, and horse-back riding; many all-inclusive resorts also offer 18-hole golf courses, sailing lessons, deep-sea fishing excursions, water parks for the kids, swim-up bars for the adults, and pung pools bubbling with volcanic mineral water pumped fresh from the Pitons for those who simply want to feel good.
There are those who argue that staying at an all-inclusive resort can take much of the fun out of exploring a new country. After all, resorts with all meals and activities included make it more expensive to strike out on your own and explore a local restaurant or take a tour on your own.
Some travelers love the simplicity of all-inclusive pricing. There are several reasons why this pricing method is popular. For instance, they avoid the need to figure out what everything is going to cost.
