23 Best Affordable All-inclusive Resorts for Families and Couples, According to Hotels.com

Here are 23 of the best affordable all-inclusive resorts, according to Hotels.com.

Looking for your next relaxing getaway? For some travelers, there's nothing better than an all-inclusive vacation because it means spending more time lounging on a pristine, white-sand beach (with a fruity drink in hand, of course), snorkeling among colorful fishes, splashing in the pool, or dining out with loved ones without ever having to reach for a wallet. And even though some all-inclusives can be pretty pricey, others offer great value, with all meals, activities, and accommodations included in one fair price.

Hotels.com rounded up some of the best affordable all-inclusive resorts, and they range from luxurious overwater villa hotels in the Maldives to family-friendly properties on the beautiful Mexican coast, with rates averaging $500 a night or less.

Here are 23 of the best affordable all-inclusive resorts, according to Hotels.com.
