And all-inclusive packages are a luxury to be experienced at least once; having drinks, food, and activities included makes for a totally relaxed Florida experience.

1. Little Palm Island Resort

To put it briefly, Little Palm Island Resort is one of the most impressive all-inclusive resorts in Florida. Little Palm Island Resort is one of the best places to stay in Florida. Guests of Little Palm Island Resort can book a meal package to create a full all-inclusive luxury getaway. There are different resort packages that include daily resort credits to cover meals and spas.

The resort feels like its very own desert island and is situated on Little Torch Key in the Florida Keys. You arrive at Little Palm Island by yacht transfer or seaplane, which is beyond being an exciting luxury in itself and more like an entire adventure. For us, its location and tropical island setting immediately won it a place on our list.

As the only private island resort in the United States, Little Palm Island Resort really helps guests to unplug. And for that reason, there are no televisions and it offers an adults-only resort experience. Even telephones and technology use is limited. To go all-inclusive off the grid, Little Palm Island Resort is somewhere you must consider amongst the best all-inclusive resorts in Florida. See rates and reviews on TripAdvisor.

5. Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

There may be a lot of Disney-related resorts on this list, but we couldn’t resist adding Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. The resort sits on the lapping shores of the man-made Seven Seas Lagoon amidst carefully pruned palm trees and tropical-style vegetation. The resort atmosphere and design sit somewhat between rustic and somewhat between magic. Everything is aesthetic – from the pool bar to the room furniture. It is impossible not to love the aesthetic vibe. Check out: the 11 Best Theme Parks in Florida To Visit

Guests can choose packages that include hotel rooms, and Disney park tickets, and if you choose the Disney dining plan your meals will be covered as well. (Note: dining plans will resume in 2024)

Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort is exactly the sort of Hilton all-inclusive experience you’d expect. The luxury 4-star high rise juts right up from the sands of Fort Lauderdale Beach. You bag private balconies with every room – the majority of which have views over Fort Lauderdale Beach below.

We’ve added Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort to our guide because it just has that classic all-inclusive vibe. With the beach on one side and the boulevard on the other, it provides a fantastic inner-city beach retreat. You can book the Experience and Stay Package which includes up to $100/night resort credit.

The resort itself has a business center and a large fitness center. The terrace pool is a real highlight, especially if you don’t want to deal with the crowds on Fort Lauderdale Beach. Check our availability, more reviews, and rates here.

Holiday Inn Resort in Orlando is a family magnet. The resort is a colorful explosion of multi-colored waterslides and constant splashing – basically, the perfect family-friendly all-inclusive resort to choose in Florida. True to its target guests, the Holiday Inn Resort provides a washing machine and dryer in each accommodation choice. So don’t worry about young children and accidents. And older children will love the five-storey waterslides and the lazy river outside.

Omni Orlando Resort at Championsgate made it onto our list as a luxurious compromise. It is the perfect stay for someone wanting to visit Disney World without making it their whole trip purpose.

Different packages include the golf package, bed, and breakfast, or spa packages.

Facility-wise, this resort has an exciting outdoor pool layout, with a lazy river, wave pool, and an adults-only pool. Omni also has a 36-hole championship golf course (and a full-service spa if you’d prefer a relaxed afternoon in a steam room). Compare reviews and rates here.

You can walk straight out onto the beach or enjoy the warm waters of one of the three outdoor pools onsite. Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa has room service, valet parking, and – strangely enough – a staggering 15 tennis courts on its grounds.

It really ticks off every luxury you’d hope from an all-inclusive resort. Aside from its beachfront locale, this reliable luxury is its most impressive factor. See more reviews and compare rates here.

Starting rate: $400 per night TripAdvisor rating: 4

10. Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

We’ve have to be honest; you are never too old for Disney. Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is a Victorian-style all inclusive resort set right in the midst of Florida’s beloved Disney World. It’s clear that its location is a real highlight, but what also makes this resort stand out is its style.

Guests can choose packages that include hotel rooms, Disney park tickets, and if you choose the Disney dining plan your meals will be covered as well. (Note: dining plans will resume in 2024)

Rather than the loveable but cheesy resort hotels you may otherwise find around Disney World, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is a picture of complete elegance. Sophisticated and luxurious, it comes equipped with a spectacular outdoor pool and spa for guests to slink away and unwind after a day in the Magic Kingdom. Compare rates and availability.

Starting rate: $900 per night TripAdvisor rating: 4.5

11. Pink Shell Beach Resort and Marina

It is pretty easy to spot the Pink Shell Beach Resort and Marina. In fact, the fact that it is pink makes it one of the most recognizable Florida all-inclusive resorts. The towering resort juts up in turret-style architecture straight off the front of Fort Myers Beach. It is a beautiful building with a sublime location.

In short, perfect for aesthetic resort-seekers wanting a beach break. Especially as guests receive a wealth of complimentary beach amenities. For us, its beach access and entertainment earned it a spot on our list. With a low $10 resort fee that includes a buffet meal, and free self-parking.

In 1950, Pink Shell Beach Resort and Marina was a humble but ambitious cottage making a mark in the world of Florida hospitality. However, word of its ‘full service’ all-inclusive experience spread fast, and nowadays (many renovations later) Pink Shell Beach Resort and Marina is one of the most successful all-inclusive resorts in Florida. The resort sits on a 12-acre site of beach and premises. See rates and reviews on TripAdvisor

Pink Shell Beach Resort has re-opened after Hurricane Ian but amenities are limited. Check their website for updates.

Starting rate: $260 per night TripAdvisor rating: 4.5

12. Ocean Key Resort & Spa

Ocean Key Resort & Spa is a luxury base on Key West in the beautiful Florida Keys. Ocean Key Resort is somewhere you can almost stumble out of your room into an outdoor pool. The pool itself is more boutique style than a resort-style pool – with a more intimate atmosphere than you’d get at one of the major resorts in Florida.

There are different packages from $100 food and beverage credit, to daily breakfast for two with room service on your own balcony.

We like that. From most rooms, you have stunning Gulf of Mexico views. And depending on your room choice you may get a spa bath and balcony. Ocean Key Resort is a modest size which makes it an endearing, boutique-style all-inclusive to choose from in Florida. See more reviews and rates

Starting rate: $550 per night TripAdvisor rating: 4.5

13. FantasyWorld Resort

FantasyWorld Resort in Kissimmee is an absolute explosion of colors and chaos – a haven for families with young, energetic children. FantasyWorld Resort wiggled its way onto our list for its family-friendly atmosphere and facilities that kids (and parents) will adore. Kids have access to the five-story, multi-colored waterslide, while older children can try their skills at an indoor surfing simulator.

Each two-bedroom suite comes with a full kitchen and washer and dryer making it perfect for the family and it is pet friendly. Guests can book vacation packages that include Disney or Universal tickets.

The resort is located in Kissimmee just a hop skip and jump from Orlando and is action-packed in the best way possible. Further facilities include a lazy river, three outdoor pools, and even a sauna for the parents.

15. Rosen Shingle Creek

If you are ready to graduate from mini golf to the real deal, Rosen Shingle Creek is the place to be. The elegant 4-star property is situated in extensive bright-green golf course grounds and is somewhere to retreat with a golf club and swimming costume. We like how Rosen Shingle Creek is set more privately than other resorts in this guide.

Packages include stay and golf packages, spa packages, and health and wellness.

The resort offers a quieter base in Orlando with some fabulous facilities. Scenic walking trails or an afternoon in the lounge chairs alongside one of four pools; whatever your tastes and preferences Rosen Shingle Creek is peaceful. The all-inclusive package is just the cherry on top.

Starting rate: $140 per night TripAdvisor rating: 4.5

16. Baker’s Cay Resort Key Largo, Curio Collection

Looking to skip the Atlantic Ocean in favor of the Gulf of Mexico? Baker’s Cay Resort Key Largo, Curio Collection is a stunning 4-star resort set right on the beachfront of Key Largo – one of the best places to stay on the Florida Keys.

The tropical vibe won us over immediately. Baker’s Cay Resort has a private beach, doorstep access to jungle-style mangroves, and beautiful nature trails. Your resort fee includes parking, bicycles, beach chairs & umbrellas, paddle boards & kayaks, nightly champagne toast, and free refillable water throughout your stay. You can opt for breakfast included.

Besides these huge tropical highlights, there are activities galore. You can scuba dive, take a boat tour, or just work up a sweat at the onsite fitness center. Baker’s Cay Resort Key Largo, Curio Collection might be a luxurious romantic getaway, but it is also a base for a Florida Keys adventure. Compare rates and reviews
