Yes, that’s included: Why book an All-Inclusive Spring Break vacation for the family

If you’re looking for a hassle-free vacation with your family, then an all-inclusive spring break is the trip for you. | By Montoya Hudson | November 19, 2021

The only thing better than a spring break vacation with your family is the same vacation — just with everything included. All you have to do is simply pick your favorite resort in your favorite destination and show up.

Not only does an all-inclusive family vacation simplify planning but it also provides countless opportunities for making memories like:

  • Learning something new: Learn to paddleboard or cook Mexican cuisine

  • Building bridges: Reconnect with your loved ones by taking a yoga class on the beach

  • Endless yum: Enjoy all the food and drinks you want, without worrying about the bill

Quality family time

One of the main benefits of booking an all-inclusive family-friendly resort for spring break is the stress-free planning. You can spend quality time with your family without worrying about planning the minute details of your trip.

If it's your style, you can pack your vacation full of activities all of which can be easily arranged by your resort’s concierge team. Participate in resort activities like snorkeling, paddleboarding and sand volleyball. Want something to do with the grandparents or a less sporty relative? The concierge at your family-friendly all-inclusive resort can also arrange kid-friendly excursions and activities like craft-making and tours. With their help, you can find activities that fit your family without the hassle of planning them yourself.

If you’d prefer to just lay out by the pool or the beach, that can be arranged too. Spend an afternoon lounging on your resort's private beach in a beach chair with an umbrella like at Hilton Tulum Riviera Maya All-Inclusive Resort. The kids can build sandcastles while the parents catch up on that book they’ve been wanting to read. Or try out all the pools at your resort; most have one for families and another for adults. Order poolside snacks or fancy drinks from the swim-up bar. And remember -- you don't have to don’t worry about the bill -- it’s all included.

Chances for romance

A spring break at a family-friendly all-inclusive resort also allows for the opportunity for romance — yes, even with the kids in tow. After a day of family fun, enjoy an evening of quality time with your partner at one of the gourmet on-site restaurants.

Drop the kids off at the on-site kids' club to enjoy activities designed by the caring resort staff. Teenagers are taken care of, too, with special clubs with supervised activities specifically for their age group (ages 13 to 17). Clubs are usually for kids 4 and older, but not to worry — resorts like Hilton Cancun, an All-Inclusive Resort offer in-room babysitting services for your littlest ones.

Take your pick of one of the many dining establishments at your all-inclusive resort and relish in a quiet, kid-free dinner with your loved one. Spend the time reconnecting with each other while your kids have the time of their lives making new friends.

Mealtime magic

Imagine a vacation where everyone gets what they want. Now picture the endless food options at your all-inclusive resort, with made-to-order dishes and regional flavors. Now that's what we call a spring break!

Many all-inclusive family resorts have numerous dining options ranging from formal restaurants to family-friendly buffets. Some, like Hilton Tulum, have as many as 13 establishments with cuisine from Japan, Italy, Mexico and more. You can dig in at the restaurant, but for the young and the young at heart, you could snack at the swim-up bar in the resort pool, in a poolside cabana or directly in your suite.

Keep in mind, unlimited food also means unlimited desserts — a perk the kids will love. Make sure you get a picture of every ice cream so your kids can savor the moment and the memories.

Relax and recharge

Fully embrace the “break” in spring break with some much-needed downtime during your all-inclusive family vacation. You sleep in late: let someone else take care of breakfast. Your all-inclusive family resort stay covers in-suite room service for the family.

Find your Zen with a beachfront yoga class led by trained resort staff. Take tranquil walks on the secluded shores of your resort’s private beach while being soothed by the sound of ocean waves. Or indulge with relaxing spa treatments like a massage or facial for wellness both inside and out (tip: Spa services are usually not included in all-inclusive packages, so check before you book).

No matter how you choose to unwind during your vacation, an all-inclusive spring break has you covered.

Try something new

What better way to spend spring break than to try something new as a family? Take advantage and try an activity you’ve never tried before.

If you’ve always wanted to try your hand at golf, then tee-off at world-class golf courses like Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa in Montego, Jamaica. If tennis is calling your name, channel your inner tennis pro with a few rounds on the resort’s courts. Take to the water and learn to snorkel, paddleboard or surf. All the equipment you need is included with your stay.

Many family-friendly all-inclusive resort properties offer regional recreational activities like Mayan art and jewelry-making in Puerto Vallarta or ceramic painting in Cancun. You can also take a Spanish class or learn how to cook your own Mexican cuisine.

An evening designed for the kid in you

During an all-inclusive spring break, the fun doesn’t have to stop when the sun sets. In fact, many resorts, like Hilton Cancun, come alive with a renewed spirit at night.

Listen to a DJ spin hit tunes while sipping your favorite beverage and watching the sun set across the ocean. Lounge poolside at one of the resort pools and be serenaded by local artists. Or enjoy elaborate performances that reflect the culture of the area like folklórico dancing in Mexico. It’s all family-friendly, but the kids can have their own brand of entertainment at the kid’s club too. With an all-inclusive spring break, the end of the day doesn’t mean the end of fun.

Make your family Spring Break memory

Vacations are a wonderful opportunity to make lasting memories with your family, and spring break is no exception. With a family all-inclusive vacation, you can focus on having fun while the resort takes care of the rest.
