All Inclusive Honeymoon
 
Looking for a nice all inclusive for 26 yr olds May/June 2012. Would like nice beach, great food and nice resort, not too big, preferably adults only.

The majority of AI resorts are located in Mexico, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic. With your listed criteria I could literally give you a list of hundreds of choices to sift through. If you would provide additional criteria and budget information we might can weedle it down. Otherwise, you'll just have people responding with their favorites or most recommended and it might not exactly fit what you are looking for.

How many nights?

Where are yu coming from (makes a huge airfare difference )

Do you need activities or luxury. What abut nightlife?

Where you are flying from and what your final destination is will have a big bearing on what your airfare will be since there's a lot of variables. Your best bet is to look at islands you can reach non-stop from your nearest international gateway airport. Generally speaking you'll find the lowest air fairs will be to the bigger islands like the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Cancun, Cozemel and Puerto Rico. If you are flying from a major East coast city you might find r/t airfare to one of the major island for anywhere from around $500/person to $800/person - add more the further you are from the east coast. With the exception of Puerto Rico the islands I listed have an abundance of All inclusive Resorts so you might want to concentrate your search to those destinations.

Also, by and large "great food" and "All Inclusive" are often mutually exclusive unless you are staying at a very high end resort (and assuming you are going for one week on your budget that's not going to be an easy find). AI's offer "food" but often it's generally not what one considers "great food". All inclusive generally means cocktails and drinks are included so that shouldn't be an issue.

As KVR says there are literally hundreds of All inclusive" resorts on the islands mentioned. You really should pick your destination first then try to narrow down your search to a resort that meets your needs and budget.

You don't mention if you need night life. If that is not very important to you, look into the Catlonia Royal Tulum in Mexico. It is an adults only all inclusive resort on a gorgeous stretch. It is not a large resort. The food and service are good and it is reasonably priced.
If you want to spend more look into the Royal Hideaway which is also a smaller adults only AI resort in Mexico's Riviera Maya.

Thanks, I'll look these up. Flying out of ATL so basically can get anywhere. Trip is for a week of relaxation and vege out. Both are medical students, getting married as soon as they graduate and off to chill on a beautiful beach with not having to worry about anything but good food was a criteria!
