An all-inclusive resort often seems like the obvious choice when planning a budget-friendly vacation.
Everything is (supposedly) included, so (supposedly) what you pay upfront is the only fee you’ll incur, and you can (supposedly) drink, dine and play till your heart’s content. But unfortunately, some hotels that bill themselves as “all-inclusive” have plenty of caveats: VIP-only pools, limited dining hours and hefty fees for just about anything extra — to name just a few.
So you won’t be met with any pricey surprises on your next getaway, Oyster.com did the research and found a dozen all-inclusive properties that truly offer a great bang for your buck. These five hotels, in the Caribbean and Mexico, are the best for those on a budget.
