We’re rapidly approaching the end of 2015, and the New Year is just around the corner. This means two things. One, it’s time to start planning those New Year’s resolutions. (Are you finally going to take that romantic getaway? Is this the year where you start using that gym membership that you’ve been paying for?) Two, it’s time for everyone to put out their year-end lists!
Over the course of the year, Trip Advisor’s users have been jet setting all over the world, sharing their opinions (and ratings) of the places they visit with the rest of us. Of particular note to Trip Advisor’s user base has been the Caribbean, which has been seeing more action than ever before! As such, Trip Advisor decided to poll its users in order to calculate the top 10 all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean.
We thought we’d share their results with you, as well as a little bit about each of these stunning resorts. Given our experiences, we have to say that Trip Advisor’s users are right on the money, as we think that these 10 resorts are some of the best that the Caribbean has to offer. So, take a look, and maybe consider booking your Caribbean vacation sooner rather than later. You know these places are going to be filling up even faster now that the word is out!
1. Luxury Bahai Principe Cayo Levantado
When it comes to Caribbean all-inclusive resorts, the users of Trip Advisor selected this Don Pablo Collection property to be the very best.
Featuring six restaurants and four separate bars, this resort in the Dominican Republic operates on its own private island.
2. The Reserve at Paradisus Punta Cana
That last resort just barely beat out the previous entry, which is situated in the beautiful Punta Cana are of the Dominican Republic.
The resort promises a relaxing vacation in luxurious trappings, offering 132 luxury suites outfitted with every modern amenity you could want.
3. Iberostar Grand Bavaro
Iberostar is known the world over for the quality for their all-inclusive resorts, and their property in the Dominican Republic is no exception!
This strictly adults-only resort is perfect for the vacationing couple or a pair of honeymooners, offering a variety of pools and beautiful white sand beaches.
4. Iberostar Grand Hotel Rose Hall
We weren’t kidding when we said that Iberostar is known for its quality. Their property in Jamaica ranked fourth on Trip Advisor’s List.

5. Galley Bay Resort
You’ll find this resort in St. John’s, Antigua. It’s one of the smaller resorts on the list, only offering 98 guestrooms.

7. The Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real
For the seventh entry on Trip Advisor’s list, we turn our attention back to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, where you’ll find this all-inclusive.
Offering plenty to keep adults entertained, this resort also understands that the children need to be entertained as well by offering an amazing kid’s zone.
8. Iberostar Hacienda Dominicus
There’s that name again! And there’s the Dominican Republic, too. This Iberostar property has been designed to offer wonderful experiences to families and couples alike.
It doesn’t matter how old or young you are though once you set foot on the property’s amazing beach. And those sunsets! Absolutely incredible.
9. Sandals Royal Plantation
Sandals has been receiving a lot of praise for its new property in Jamaica, so it’s nice to see this making Trip Advisor’s list.
Unlike other larger Sandal’s resorts, this one offers a boutique experience, meaning that it’s perfect for the honeymooning couple.
10. Melia Cayo Coco
Still not convinced it’s time to pay Cuba a visit? Then why not check out this stunning resort in Cayo Coco?
