    All inclusive vacations

    The wife and I are looking to take a last minute vacation next month somewhere warm with a beach. Does anyone have a good recommendation for websites with good deals on all inclusive vacations?

    We have used expedia in the past. Couples Swept Away in Jamaica is an all inclusive. Top notch, great beach and weather.

    I liked both of our stays at Palace Resorts, they have many locations. Punta Cana was the best one we stayed at.

    Re: All inclusive vacations

    I love the Palace Resorts... If you are looking for true all inclusive. That is the way to go. Keep in mind you are going to pay about $1000-1200 with airfare per person for a week. But you don't pay for a thing.

    www.applevacations.com does a good job IMO.

    why would you do anything online without checking in at CF first?

    Keep in mind it is the busy season right now so prices will be a lot higher.

    Re: All inclusive vacations

    bookit.com

    Might be a little more expensive up-front, but they dont charge rediculous "government fees", and other bogus charges, like places like orbitz. So in the end, they are cheaper. We went to Cabo, stayed at the Riu Santa Fe for 5 days, 4 nights and was $1700 for an ocean view room and one-stop flight. All-inclusive of course. Been to Cancun, Bahamas and Jamaica, and Cabo was by far the best for couples. We loved it!

    If nothing else, sign up with bookit.com and they said you last minute deals that are pretty cheap.

    I just did a search there vs any other online places, I did not see a big difference at all, but maybe it is just the locations I was looking at. I think you can get better deals to Mexico than you can to Jamaica.

    The scary thing is, I was just looking up a weekend in Vegas for our anniversary. Wow that place is expensive. It would be the same price to go to Vegas for a 3 day weekend as it would be to spend a week all inclusive in Jamaica.

    I hope you've remembered to get a baby sitter for the kid... a call from his principal would be a quick way to ruin a vacation like that

    Couples resorts are great, and Jamaica is very nice (if you stay within the resort). I've heard great things about Swept Away. I've been to the one in Negril. There is another one in Ocho Rios.

    Check those out.

    Re: All inclusive vacations

    Me and the Wife are going to Cancun at the end of the month. We looked at both Applevacations and Expedia. Depended on the place, and when you looked who was cheaper. One week expedia would be more expensive, the next week for the same place it would be cheaper. Anyway, we booked with expedia all inclusive.
