Whether traveling with my kids, my husband or my mom, I’ve always enjoyed all-inclusive resorts. From family-friendly to adults-only resorts, fully all-inclusive resort vacations offer lodging, dining, entertainment and activities for one flat rate. There are only two traditional all-inclusive resorts in Florida:

  • Sandpiper Bay Resort All Inclusive, Trademark Collection by Wyndham
  • Bungalows Key Largo

The other resorts on our list offer flexible add-on packages with benefits, discounts or resort fees with amenities worth considering. Examples include meal plans, or activities and amenities including beach chairs and umbrellas and fitness classes. Members of the SheBuysTravel team who frequently visit the Sunshine State, recommend:

  • The oceanfront Fort Lauderdale Harbor Marriott Beach
  • Four Seasons Resort for luxury near Disney World
  • Sandpearl on Florida’s beautiful Clearwater Beach

Prices vary at these resorts, and the others on our list, depending on location, amenities, time of year, and level of luxury. Generally, you can expect to pay from about $200 per night double occupancy to well over $1000 per night. Several of these Florida resorts offer “Good Neighbor” deals to residents of Florida and Georgia.

  1. How do I get to go to an all inclusive resort for cheap? Can I go under the SheBuysTravel? Do people do such things, that they write about their experience & get discounts or free travel?
