It should come as no surprise that resorts are one of the most popular vacation options out there. There's nothing better than traveling to a beautiful area and staying in a hotel where you can forget all of your worries and stress for a short period of time. Resorts offer you amenities, loads of activities to keep you busy and breathtaking sights (hence the term all-inclusive).
When it comes to resorts, there are endless options to choose from. You have resorts that cater to families and some that are completely kid-free! Before choosing a resort, it's important to outline for yourself what you want to be included in your vacation.
If you've reached the stage where it's time to choose a resort, two of the most popular resorts are The Sandals and Club Med. If you want to get a brief resume of what both of these resorts have to offer in terms of all-inclusiveness, we've got that for you!
Sandals: Make It Valentines Day Every
The Sandals is reserved exclusively for couples and puts an emphasis on cozy, romantic experiences. They have hotels in the Caribbean, specifically Antigua, Jamaica, Grenada, and Barbados. Many of these hotels include fire pits for an evening cuddle, gazebos and swinging chairs with a great view of the water.
If you're looking for some serious private time with your partner, they offer Love Nest suites. They're a little more expensive, but they are super worth it. You can enjoy private pools, 24-hour room service, and your own butler! Talk about an upgrade!
At Sandles resorts, their goal is to make it feel like Valentine's Day every day. They have an entire spectrum of budgets and room types to accommodate their guests. Having said that, all of their room include super wide king beds, pillow menus for when you want a midnight snack and even rainfall showers!
And you'll never be bored! Sandals resorts have a lot of activities, including beach parties, diving centers and water sports, such as sailing and glass-bottom boat tours! What better way to spend some alone time with your partner than sharing a moment straight out of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory?
There are 162 different restaurants across all 15 resorts, with a bunch of different drinking spots as well. As an added bonus, you get unlimited top-quality liquor and the restaurants can accommodate any dietary needs that you have.
Club Med: Keep Idle No More
Club Med is one of the longest and most internationally acknowledged resort brands in existence. Once a couples-only hotel with very...ahem.. loose rules, it has since evolved into a family-friendly resort with an emphasis on friendliness and providing new experiences for guests.
Their resorts can be found in virtually every corner of the globe, including the Caribbean, Italy, France, Maldives and even Japan!
You'll be treated to small and cozy rooms that usually have a great decorating scheme, as well as free-Wifi. No need to worry about the internet breaking your budget while you're trying to relax!
It is a guarantee that you will never be bored at Club Med. Their entire modus operandi is structured around activities and having as many all-inclusive features as possible. If you want to try your luck at more adrenaline heavy activities, they offer circus activities, such as tight-rope walking and trapeze swinging. They also offer archery and water-skiing, all at an affordable price that you wouldn't find outside of the resort.
If you're in the mood for something a little more relaxing, guided walks are offered, as well as yoga classes, snorkeling, golf, and tennis. No matter your comfort level, there is something for everyone, and that's a guarantee!
If the beach is a non-negotiable in your vacation experience, then we recommend checking out Club Med Buccaneer's Creek in Martinique. It has one of the longest hotel beaches on the island, so you can expect quite an overabundance of beautiful sand and water.
And they certainly don't lack in the amenities department. The resort boasts an oceanfront infinity pool, two open-air restaurants, and a sizable gym. This means that you can indulge in great food and still keep active. Sounds like a great deal to us!
What's great about their rooms is that they offer private balconies and some of them even have ocean views. So whenever you want a quiet moment to soak up the beautiful scenery, all you have to do is open your bedroom door and step onto the balcony!
