All-inclusive holidays have come on leaps and bounds in the past ten years, offering fine-dining, luxury facilities and pools for days. Not to mention cocktails, ice creams and treats on tap, all day, everyday. And one of the main reasons all-inclusive hotels are so popular is the financial aspect - yes, they might seem a tad pricier when booking, but with everything included, you know what you're paying before you even start to pack. 

I for one love an all-inclusive holiday, have been going on them for years. And the data on what makes a good holiday for Brits in 2024 supports my love - a recent Skyscanner holiday trend report 2024 showed that value for money remains a priority for UK travellers, with the cost of the hotel and flight being the biggest factors determining where they travel - which is why an all-inclusive helps with that decision making.

The best all-inclusive hotels - at a glance

There's the popular all-inclusive hotels at classic holiday hotspots like Spain, the Canary Islands and Turkey, boujis adults-only all-inclusive spots in long-haul destinations from Mauritius to the Maldives and cheap all-inclusive hotels all over the world too. Not forgetting hotels for babies and toddlers, energy-fuelled kids and teenagers too - got to keep the kids happy!

One of the top reasons holidaymakers praise all-inclusive holidays is that you know what it’s going to cost you, upfront. Then it’s up to you to see if your budget or time allows for meals outside of the resort or activities that aren’t included. Another is the ease; everything is taken care of for you, with food available throughout the day (most including breakfast, lunch and dinner along with poolside snacks throughout the day), drinks on tap (from local wines and spirits to cocktails and soft drinks) plus activities on tap, which often includes kids’ club, evening entertainment, fitness classes and more. 

We’ve scoured the globe to find real reviews and the best-rated hotels out there, from Spain to Aruba and more...

How I chose the best all-inclusive hotels 

  • Tripadvisor reviews: I’ve done a deep dive on travel websites like, Tripadvisor and more, read the accompanying reviews to check they are nothing but positive and complimentary. Unfortunately we're not able to test out the hotels featured, but if a HELLO! staffer has, we'll let you know their thoughts too.
  • Location: From Spain to the Seychelles, I’ve included all-inclusive resorts from across the globe.
  • Budget: As well as luxurious, I’ve included family all-inclusive hotels, plus cheaper all-inclusive holidays, to suit all budgets and price points.
  • Trusted holiday companies: Booking a holiday is pricey, and I’ve included all-inclusive hotels available via trusted holiday companies. That means they’re either ABTA or ATOL accredited or the HELLO! team have had personal – and positive - experiences with the companies.
