15 Best All-Inclusive Resorts in Florida That Are Perfect for Your Next Getaway

Sunrise Pool Florida all inclusive resort via tripadvisor.com

Fun in the Florida sun

All-inclusive resorts are smart travel choices. They fold every aspect of a fantastic vacation—lodging, food and drink, and activities—into one value-packed price. Fortunately, you don’t have to leave the country to enjoy a great escape. There are plenty of excellent all-inclusive resorts in Florida, so feel free to leave your passport behind.

What’s more, when it comes to the best all-inclusive resorts in the United States, the Sunshine State reigns supreme. There’s something for every traveler, whether you’re looking for the best adults-only all-inclusive resorts or the best all-inclusive resorts for families.

One thing to keep in mind: Unlike the best all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico, most of the all-inclusive resorts in Florida put their own spin on the term. A handful of them charge resort fees for access to on-site amenities and activities like sports, games, classes, and more. In other words, not every all-inclusive resort in Florida is “all inclusive” in the traditional sense. The term means different things at every resort, so be sure you’re aware of what is and isn’t included, from meals and drinks to activities, gratuities, resort fees, and beyond.

How we chose the best all-inclusive resorts in Florida

We started our hunt for the best all-inclusive resorts in Florida with research, combing hundreds of guest reviews to get the scoop from people who’d been there, done that. To ensure our picks were the crème de la crème, we made sure all of the properties we selected had an average rating of at least four stars on TripAdvisor (though most have 4.5 or even 5 stars). Additionally, almost all of the top all-inclusive resorts in Florida have well over 2,500 reviews on TripAdvisor, which means plenty of travelers have weighed in on the pros and cons.
