The Best All Inclusive Puerto Rico Resorts

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - February 13, 2017

Puerto Rico has long occupied a unique niche in the world of Caribbean travel; while it’s been off the radar of the jet set for decades (something that is, happily, changing), it has found favor with adventure and culture aficionados drawn to places like the El Yunque rainforest and Old San Juan.

But Puerto Rico has also been unique for its decided lack of all-inclusives – in sharp contrast to its neighbors like the Dominican Republic.

While that’s beginning to shift (with a major new all inclusive Puerto Rico-based AMResorts property on the way on the southern part of the island, finding an all-inclusive Puerto Rico resort isn’t easy.

But it is possible.

There are three Puerto Rico resorts that do offer all-inclusive options (with both food and drinks covered), spread out across the island but all boasting name-brand recognition.

Here’s how to stay at a Puerto Rico all-inclusive.

All Inclusive Puerto Rico

El Conquistador, A Waldorf Astoria Resort By far your best option for a Puerto Rico all-inclusive resort experience is this: the all-inclusive package at the El Conquistador resort in Fajardo. This sprawling property has a wide range of amenities, from a hillside funicular to a water park to its biggest perk: access to the spectacular private island called Palomino (easily accessed by regular hotel ferry service). And the all-inclusive package, which starts at less than $270 per person, is a great way to experience it all.

All Inclusive Puerto Rico

Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Beach Resort and Spa

Still a bit of a secret, this Puerto Rico resort recently made its all-inclusive package a year-round option, meaning you get breakfast, lunch, dinner daily along with unlimited house brand cocktails, local beer, house wine by the glass and non-alcoholic beverages and bottled water during restaurant and bar hours.

This is also one of the Caribbean’s best places for golf, with a pair of world-class courses: The Ocean Course by Tom and George Fazio, and the River Course by Greg Norman. That makes it the perfect all inclusive Puerto Rico destinaton for active travelers.

All Inclusive Puerto Rico

Gran Melia Puerto Rico Golf Resort If you’re a regular all-inclusive traveler, you’re familiar with the Melia name — but this isn’t a “traditional” all inclusive like many of the brand’s properties in places like the DR. But this Rio Grande-area hotel, which is Melia’s only Puerto Rico resort, does offer a full board option covering your food and drinks with meals.

So as you can see, while finding an All Inclusive Puerto Rico resort isn’t as easy as it is on other Caribbean islands, it’s definitely doable. It’s just about finding the right kind of resort for the Puerto Rico all inclusive vacation you’re looking for.
