The best all inclusive resorts for young adults

Updated February 21, 2017

Many young adults favour party and social atmospheres when travelling. All-inclusive resorts are a popular choice for young adults because food and drinks--alcoholic or non-alcoholic--are included in the price of your stay. There are a handful of all-inclusive resorts that are ideal for young people as the resorts provide ample booze and attract a festive atmosphere so young people can easily socialise, let loose and have fun.

Sandals Grande Ocho Rios Beach Resort

The Sandals resort in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, is a popular all-inclusive resort for young adults. The resort is an adults-only resort, so you will not find children running around or families on vacation with you, which is attractive to many young people. Sandals is designed for couples vacations, though; if you are looking for a getaway with a group of friends, this might not be the best fit, but it is a good option for a trip with your significant other. The resort has plenty of amenities, including a variety of rooms, suites and cottages to stay in, 11 casual and elegant restaurants, several bars, a full service spa and nearby golf. The resort is located right on the beach, so there are plenty of beach and water activities to enjoy as well, including sailboats, snorkelling, scuba diving and beach volleyball.
