Why visit Puerto Rico? Why not? If there was ever a moment when we desperately needed something to hold up hope, now it is. And what better light at the end of the tunnel than sapphire oceans, palm trees and pristine beaches? Do we really have to add more?

Whether you expect to laze on sandy beaches all day long, learn about the troubled past of this Caribbean archipelago, or trek through thick tropical rainforests, Puerto Rico is a must-see. This vibrant paradise is famous for providing a plethora of rewarding experiences for those looking for mind-blowing vistas, history buffs, and adrenaline junkies alike.

Furthermore, there is lots of imperial architecture to discover, a bustling music scene to enjoy and some of the tastiest specialties you will ever eat. Have fun savoring a mojito and listening to salsa on the cobbled walkways of Old San Juan while the evening sun highlights the pastel-colored residences. This little island is still a part of the United States, but it has managed to keep its colorful history.

Beyond Puerto Rico’s capital, San Juan’s charming exterior, the coastline stays remarkably wild and pristine, with kilometers of glistening white sand. If you delve further, you will discover the island’s fusion of cultures, shown by an exhilarating range of festivities, charming old villages, top-notch rum, and gorgeous scenery.

Gather your towel and unwind on one of the island’s several sizzling beaches. But you must first discover an excellent resort for your next holiday to Puerto Rico. The feeling of having to wake up to a magnificent scene seen through your window is both uplifting and surreal.

You’ll find lush vegetation and a length of secluded, stunning beaches, as well as superior services, lavish amenities, and groomed gardens. Add a feast of recreational excursions, premium golf courses, and tropically-themed restaurants to the mix and you’ll have the perfect place to spend your days.

The majority of these resorts provide several exquisite amenities for their guests. Once you arrive here, the only thing left to worry about is how much fun you’re going to have. These deluxe resorts ensure that guests have the most pleasant accommodations possible, and they will go above and beyond to give you loads of royal service.

You will get the impression of being a king, even if just for a brief while. After all, we all need to benefit from a little dose of grandeur, relaxation and comfort in our next vacation. Nonetheless, none of this would matter on an exotic island if there was no beach to sink your feet into.

Okay, that’s enough chit-chat. Let’s cut right to the chase. Here is our list of the 25 best all-inclusive resorts in Puerto Rico.

25. Parador Palmas de Lucia

The hotel’s amenities are not as stunning as those of the surrounding premium facilities. The rooftop swimming pool and gym facilities are both tiny, but there is no spa. However, for visitors seeking an excellent beachfront, a strategic position, decent accommodations, and reasonable rates, this property is hard to surpass.

This magnificent resort is imbued with glittering, refined splendor, with a path winding through artfully groomed gardens and leading to a two-mile-long beach.

The five-star St. Regis Bahia resort in Puerto Rico has all the high-end amenities you’d count on: golfing, lazing by the beachside pools, soaking in a massage at the fancy spa, and eating at one of its prime restaurants. Art enthusiasts will admire the bronze artworks by Fernando Botero scattered across the site.

1. Dorado Beach, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve

We think we are entitled to claim we found “El Dorado” and not just because of the name. The straight palms and immaculate green fields establish this resort as a distinct sanctuary in the archipelago, a private upscale community where millionaires mingle.

Upon arrival, guests are greeted by wooden pathways, a lotus pond, and carefully cultivated flora, while panoramic ocean views and a two-mile stretch of beachfront quickly create a feeling of serenity.

However, this resort has a distinguished history. In the late 1950s, when Puerto Rico was at the pinnacle of its tourist attraction glory, Laurance Rockefeller (yes, that Rockefeller) founded it. Later on, when the Ritz-Carlton Reserve was redesigned, its architects and designers tried to make it even more elegant and peaceful than before.

Even entry-level rooms are expansive (nearly 1,000 square feet) and all celebrate the beautiful scenery with spacious patios and colossal frame windows, providing epic ocean glimpses. Several of them include gorgeous infinity pools.

Among the amenities, one might find two swimming pools, three fine-dining restaurants, an up-scale fitness facility, an elegant spa, and an abundance of recreational activities, along with a water park. Rates and resort fees render this a pricey stay, yet most customers find the quality of care and options to be worth it.


The most challenging part of reserving an all-inclusive holiday is choosing a resort. From there, it’s all sunlight and sand. With our support, you might feel confident somebody has made the work to complete the analysis for you.

Thus, consider the above points before using your credit card.
