This year, if you and your family want to get out of town, you should check out these all-inclusive family vacations.

All-inclusive family resorts are great for family vacations because everything, including events, food, drinks, etc., is included in the price. This means that once you get there, you don’t have to spend much money. Also, if your friends or extended family join you on the trip, it’s not awkward to talk about who’s paying. The best part is that these places give you a much-needed break. The programs for kids and teens that are guided are so cool that your little travelers will want to check them out for a morning, an afternoon, or maybe even the whole day. Here you are, spa!

In the last few years, many new all-inclusive resorts have opened, making it easier than ever to find one that fits your family’s holiday style and fits your budget. Many family all-inclusive are beach resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean. However, there are also some great pay-one-price choices in New England lakeside getaways, dude farms in the mountains, teen-friendly health places, and ski resorts.

Many of the places on this list have been checked out by our expert team at the Good Housekeeping Institute, and several of them have won one of the first-ever Family Travel Awards from Good Housekeeping. Find your group’s next trip right now! Getting away will feel so good.

Hotel Xcaret México (Playa del Carmen, Mexico)

The 900-suite Hotel Xcaret México, which won a 2023 Good Housekeeping Family Travel Award, is the best place for adventurous families to have the time of their lives. The lodge has a great pool area and a lot of space for your entire family. It also lets you go to any of the brand’s eight action parks and takes you there. The nearby parks focus on “bucket list” things to do. At Xplor, for example, your group can fly through a jungle, raft through an old cave, and swim in an underground river that leads to a waterfall.

Our tester said that the lodge is a great place to go on a family vacation if you have kids who are at least in elementary school. But if you have a baby or child, the brand provides a variety of gear so you don’t have to bring or rent any. “You can borrow a huge amount of baby gear, like bathtubs, bottle warmers, and even strollers that are made to go on the beach.” Our minds are already feeling lighter.

Runaway Bay, Jamaica: Franklyn D. Resort & Spa

At the Franklyn D. Resort & Spa, each family gets a “Vacation Nanny” who is trained in CPR and stays with them for about eight hours a day, from early morning until late afternoon. They can take the kids to the pool, make sure they have lunch, put them down for naps, and restock your fridge with snacks and drinks. You could use them as extra hands or put them in charge so you could go fishing, get a spa treatment, or just read a book on the beach. There are only two-bedroom houses to stay in. Even though they’re not as fancy as 400-thread-count sheets, not having to tiptoe around in the dark to avoid waking up a sleeping baby more than makes up for it.

Beaches Turks & Caicos (Providenciales, Turks & Caicos)

Beaches Turks & Caicos seems to have thought of everything a family could want or need. It was called “the ultimate all-inclusive” in the 2023 Good Housekeeping Family Travel Awards. Several different restaurants? Beaches have more than 20 options. Fun clubs with adults? They have activities for kids of all ages, from babies to teenagers.

The activities are divided into age groups, so kids can hang out with other kids within a year or two of their own age. Even kids with special needs can take part in one of their programs. Unique things that will blow your children’s minds? Toddlers and kids can’t get enough of their Sesame Street-themed shows, like Cookie Monster baking and Elmo having a dance party. Older kids won’t want to leave the fun rides, lazy river, and surf simulator at the pirate-themed water park. “Our kids went to the pool’s swim-up soda bar every single day,” said one of our testers.

You can go to the spa or sit by the pool or beach with a drink and a book. There are a lot of rooms that can fit bigger groups, so bring your grandparents or family friends. “Beaches Turks & Caicos has everything you could want, including convenience, since it’s only 10 minutes from the airport,” said our taster.

In the meantime, you can have a cup of coffee in peace or go to a yoga class or tennis lesson. Families get together in the afternoon for maple snow cones, arts and games, bike rides, and a lot more. Seventy-two houses and rooms come in different sizes and layouts. Farmhouse West, the biggest one, can sleep up to ten people.

Our tester said, “Woodloch Resort is perfect if you want the comforts of a hotel and the benefits of a lake house.” Activities like bumper cars, boat tours, and baking contests are meant to help families spend time together. Meals are well-planned: “You’re given a table, and that’s your table for the whole stay. When you’re ready, you just walk in and sit down.”

The Ziva suite is great for families because it has a separate room for the kids to sleep in, two bathrooms, and a great location near the kids’ club and water park. Remember that you can’t swim on most Los Cabos beaches, including this one, because the currants need to be stronger. But if your kids would rather be in the pool anyway, it doesn’t matter.

You can do a lot with your family, like go to the water park, play tennis, and take electric beach bike trips.

In the winter, your group can go snow tubing, ice skating, and cross-country skiing to have fun. In the price, you get three meals, afternoon tea and cookies, and most of the events. The service is great. Our tester said, “The staff was very helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly.” “They know they’re a place for families and are well-equipped to deal with kids.
