All-Inclusive Resorts Where You Can Stay on Marriott Bonvoy Points

By: Bob Curley - June 24, 2023

Marriott’s alliance with Royalton Resorts and its acquisition of Elegant Hotels group in Barbados has greatly expanded the number of Caribbean resorts where its Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program members can use their rewards points to book all-inclusive vacation stays. In many cases, an all-inclusive stay will cost you a bucketload of points, but with dynamic pricing, the cost of points stays can range higher or lower depending on season and demand.

Here are the Marriott all-inclusive properties in the Caribbean that you can pay for with Bonvoy points instead of cash.
