The appeal of an all-inclusive beach hotel is obvious—unlimited food, drink, activities, and relaxation, with no wallet-carrying required. Amazing all-inclusive resorts aren't hard to find in Mexico, but what if you have another exotic destination in mind? We've rounded up our favorite alternative all-inclusive experiences.

Curtain Bluff, Antigua

If the definition of a truly superior Caribbean all-inclusive is defined by excellent (not just plentiful) food and drink, exquisite beaches, and the property's ability to deliver a luxurious yet unpretentious experience, Curtain Bluff is the one to beat. Located on the island of Antigua, the resort consists of 72 suites and guestrooms, some of which are built into a bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. All accommodations come with a private patio or balcony, but the Terrace Room, which features a rather expansive semi-circular terrace and a sizeable outdoor Jacuzzi tub, is worth every penny.

Expect to enjoy peach-and-violet sunsets, swimming in the resort's tranquil jade-green lagoon, elegant five-course dinner menus that change nightly, and countless genteel touches like afternoon tea served on the Sugar Mill Terrace and a chanteuse performing jazzy renditions of Bob Marley covers in the evenings.

From $715 per couple per night (summer value rate); includes all meals, drinks, and activities like snorkeling, sea kayaking, tennis, and more
