Looking to take my family away in Feb or March for a big birthday of mine.

Because of the number of people involved I think an all inclusive may be best (I have never done an AI before). I don't like compromising on my food and drink while on vacation so it has to be top notch food and service.

Which one's can you recommend that also allows children (want to include the grandkids) and is w/n about 4 hours from NY ??


Thanks for the help.

Check out Riu resorts- all inclusive and family friendly. Have resorts all over the Caribbean. And can book airfare with hotel.

Just putting in dates in March for Playa Del Carmen and departing from JFK- prices were between $1100 and $2000 per person including air. The reason why the price range is so varied is because there are 5 different levels. Club level is the entry and Palace is the top. All are great, 5 star places. Food is good buffet style with a LARGE selection. Can usually get better prices with their sales, which are frequent.

Sheck it: Hoteles RIU Hotels & Resorts - All-Inclusive Resorts - RIU - Beach Hotels, All-Inclusive Beach Vacations

You could always hit Atlantis in Nassau down in the Bahamas. I go once a year and it is great! Shopping, aquarium, great restruants, pools, spa, ect.

I just booked next month for HARD ROCK HOTEL N CASINO in PUNTA CANA in Dominican Republik . Why ? Because i been to all inclusives in Acapulco, Cabo San Lucas , Cancun , Puerto Vallarta , and stayed at all 5* resorts with AI .. When going all inclusive its either hit or miss with the food and drink dept atleast IMO .. Ive stayed at the ROYAL CANCUN <adults only> prob best food and drink IMHO that ive ever had at AI but again adults only . Though their sister resort next door allows families n KIDS . You can try the palace resorts best bet would be to try and find a member willing to sell of their week because you will get a better deal and will have more perks being a guest of members .. One things you gotta notice with all inclusives is they cater to everyone but 99.9% are timeshares with members having more perks then the person who just books a week from an online site .. I booked on a whim becuase i got a 5k bonus but this place im staying next month use to be the moon palace bought by Hard Rock and converted to only AI hard rock/moon palace AI that i know of in carribean . PLUS all the reviews rave about how much their kids loved the place due to 11 pools and kids pool with water slides .
TRIPADVISOR.com would be a good place to start and get some much needed advice that your looking for they have forums for any destination and reviews on any hotel/resort .. Goodluck

Atlantis is not all inclusive, and Riu Palace resorts are one of the best AI out there. I go to them almost everytime. Also do you have a particular location in mind as most islands are with in ur 4 hour limit

Riu Palace resorts are always top notch quality.

Been to the one in Cabo and in Punta Cana, would recommend either of them.

I just came back from Playa del Carmen and I loved it. Probably the most turquoise color of water I've ever seen. Great food, although I stayed in a hotel off the beach and chose against staying at the resort (which frankly came out to cost much more than resort), because me and my gf wanted to explore different restaurants and I also feel entrapped in resorts. Last year I was at Majestic Elegance Resort in Punta Cana, which was great but all the buffet overload and then signing up for restaurants inside and hoping to get in, made me feel like waiting in a club line.
