Know Before You Travel

  • Check the property’s age restrictions before you book. No uniform definition or rule of what constitutes an “adults-only” resort exists. A minimum age limit of 12 is set in some properties, and a minimum age limit of 16 or 18 in others.
  • Check the complimentary amenities and activities included in the all-inclusive rate and your room and board. You don’t usually have to pay for nonmotorized water sports or nightly entertainment, but you must pay separately for spa treatments, excursions, and some dishes.
  • In general, resorts do not enforce couples-only restrictions, but some cater to honeymooning couples or those celebrating a special occasion seeking a romantic getaway. If you show up alone or with friends, research the resort and the types of travelers it attracts before you go.
