Deluxe Island Vacations for a Great Price

Deluxe Island Vacations for a Great Price

by Kevin Patterson

Ben Franklin was right. A penny saved is a penny earned. And, if you're counting pennies for a dream vacation, we think you should follow Ben's advice. The best island vacations save you plenty of pennies when you choose all-inclusive hotels. If he could, we're sure Ben would snap up a chance to enjoy these three resorts for incredible island vacations.

Ben would agree that Hotel Cozumel is a thrifty choice thanks to its all-inclusive island vacation packages. Divers love the five-star PADI Dive Paradise, the hotel's dive center offers lockers, a private pier and fresh-water showers to guests. And it's no secret that the diving off the west coast of Cozumel is some of the best in the world. Families love the Beach Club's gorgeous stretch of beach, buffet restaurant and bar. Plus guests have the free use of non-motorized water sports to stay active. Kids love the resort for its Kids Club for munchkins aged 5 to 12 and the island's largest pool!

Ben was known for being clever, and choosing Riu Palace Paradise Island, next door to the famous Atlantis Resort, would definitely be his choice, thanks to its terrific Bahamas Island vacation packages! Overlooking the spectacular three-km Cabbage Bay Beach and with a 300-sq-m freshwater pool with a swim-up bar, this resort is paradise. The pennies you save with the all-inclusive package can be spent next door at the Atlantis Casino, the largest in the Caribbean, or to pay the Atlantis' aqua park fee. Of course, Riu Palace Paradise Island treats guests to excellent dining, lovely rooms and plenty of things to do. After a day of snorkeling or touring Nassau, treat yourself to a massage at the hotel's Renova Spa. It'll be pennies well-spent.

The luxurious Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe might amaze Ben, but he would definitely appreciate the deals this resort offers to earn it kudos for the best island vacations in the Dominican Republic. Strategically located on one of the best beaches in the world, Bavaro Beach, this mega resort offers everything your heart desires while saving you precious pennies. A PB Dye-designed golf course, a water park for the youngsters, a casino, a disco and a full-service spa ensure there's literally something for everyone.

The best island vacations offer savings and fun in equal measure. Whether you choose Cozumel, Punta Cana or Paradise Island, vacation packages at all-inclusive resorts make you healthy, wealthy and wise, or so Ben says!
