Although all-inclusive resorts are one of the Caribbean's own inventions, they are more popular in some regions than others. The Virgin Islands follow this same trend, and the availability of all-inclusive resorts varies from island to island.

Nearly all of the Virgin Islands' all-inclusive resorts are concentrated on the island of St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The other two islands sport a few, but they are not known for them.

All-inclusive resorts offer guests just about everything they could want, from food and drink to activities. However, be aware of what exactly is covered in your all-inclusive plan, as some resorts do not offer everything one might expect. Higher-end amenities such as spa services often incur an additional charge. Ask the personnel at the front desk to find out exactly what is included in the flat rate.

On the other hand, not everyone loves these resorts. There is some debate about the all-inclusive experience. While for some it seems like the perfect vacation - affordable and relaxing with everything you need right at your fingertips - others have a different opinion.

The Options

Some people enjoy the comfort of an all-inclusive price. There are several explanations for their appeal. Among other factors, they sidestep the need to develop a detailed budget. Click on the names of them for more details and information, including activities, amenities, food, and more.

Avid tennis players often enjoy staying at Dreams Sugar Bay Resort & Spa, as they have some excellent tennis facilities.
