    • n Vacation Express' Top 5
    • Vacation Express Top 5 All-Inclusive Resorts TripAdvisor recently released its 2011 Travelers’ Choice® Awards lists including its Top 10 Best All Inclusive Hotels IN THE WORLD!! And not surprising to me (but maybe it is to you), FOUR of them are located in Mexico and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic – and are among our top picks too! We’ve added one we feel should have made the list – and probably will next year as it’s maybe just too new to have been considered for this 2011 award. Check it all out on TripAdvisor.





      1. Iberostar Grand Hotel Paraiso - 6* - Riviera Maya – Adults Only
      Iberostar's first adults only (18+) all suites hotel in Mexico, where guests enjoy unparalleled service with oversized Jacuzzi suites, extraordinary amenities, a couples-oriented spa, exceptional cuisine and full access to the magnificent Playa Paraiso Complex and golf course.

    • 2. Le Blanc Spa Resort - 6* - Cancun – Adults Only

    • 3. Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun - 5½* - Riviera Maya – Adults Only

    • PLUS we’ve added our own top pick to round out the TOP 5:


      5. Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana - 5½* - Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

      VE Review: Hard Rock International entered the Caribbean market last November when it reflagged the former Moon Palace Resort as the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. It has proven to be a hugely successful venture for Palace Resorts and Hard Rock Hotels both, and is enjoying record occupancies and rave reviews from one and all with its incredible WOW factor!
    • ALSO…Kudos go out to La Amada Hotel in Playa Mujeres on the Riviera Maya…it was selected as one of the Top 10 Relaxation/Spa hotels in the world by TripAdvisor.

        All of these resorts are nice, but my problem is finding an adult all-inclusive that offers a true "island" experience instead of concrete jungles. I prefer outdoor dining with the water and beach beneath my feet. Another issue is the nicer resorts usually have boring nightlife and are too secluded to get to the nightlife offered on an island. Help! I need beach bars along the beach, dinner venues along the water, etc. Oh, and the only resort I have been to that offers even close to that is Couple's Swept Away in Negril. I adore it but want to go somwhere different.
