Travellers pick their most preferred all-inclusive destinations and Mexico dominates.
TRAVELLERS looking to book their all-inclusive, no-thinking-required winter holiday may want to check out TripAdvisor’s latest ranking of top resorts around the world, in which the Royalton Cayo Santa Maria in Cuba took the top spot.
In the online review site’s annual Travelers’ Choice All-Inclusive Resort list, TripAdvisor users were nearly unanimous in their praise for the adults-only Royalton Cayo Santa Maria (www.royaltonresorts.com/en/cayo-santa-maria/all-inclusive-resorts.aspx) resort in Cuba, which earned a five out of five-bubble rating from its 1,236 reviews.
Guests praised the resort for its cheerful, helpful staff, white sand beaches and infinity pools and for doing away with traditional buffets and offering full restaurant-style service.
Services include 24-hour butler service, a pillow menu, a choice of three restaurants that serve Caribbean and international cuisine, access to fitness facilities and daily entertainment on the beach.
Dominating the top 10 list with four addresses is Mexico, followed by the Dominican Republic which scored two spots on the list.
