All-inclusive resorts that deliver surprising luxuries, service, and cuisine at an affordable (and predictable) price.

Meliá Caribe Tropical Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

9 of 11

Who Should Go: Couples, families, groups

Why: While it’s so sprawling that a mini-train shuttles guests around its vast grounds, the Meliá Caribe Tropical offers a Royal Service upgrade that tames the beast. Royal Treatment guests can take advantage of the extensive amenities of a mega-resort while staying in their own wing, complete with dedicated butler service, as well as a private restaurant, pool, and exclusive stretch of Punta Cana’s spectacular blue water and bone-white sand beach. A beach concierge and runners fetch drinks and cool towels to your shady palapa. The distractions are many: golf, a climbing wall, windsurfing, ten pools, tennis, and a casino. The Flintstones-themed kids’ club operates until the late evening so parents can enjoy some uninterrupted yabba-dabba-you time.

The Dollars: Family Junior Suites are available from $618/night.
