Top 5 Boutique All Inclusive Resorts

All Inclusive Outlet's Ranking of the Top 5 Boutique All Inclusive Resorts with 100 rooms or less.

1. El Dorado Maroma - 72 rooms  (adults-only)
What we like: Amazing staff, world-class Maroma Beach location, luxury accommodations, gourmet a la carte dining and a host of activities. This boutique resort even has a full schedule of nightly entertainment.  With 4 dining venues, one would think this has to be a much larger hotel. Beach and pool butlers cater to your every whim.  24 hour room service is just minutes away from each suite.

 

2. Zoetry Paraiso De La Bonita - 90 rooms
What we like: Of the 90 available suites, 100% are ocean/beachfront accommodations. The suites start at a whopping 1,130 square feet and top out with the expansive Presidential Suite Oceanfront with plunge pool at a staggering 3,000 square feet of living space! Zoetry Resorts offers Endless Privileges, which takes the all inclusive concept further into the luxury category with amenities such as personalized, private chauffeured airport transfers, Bvlgari bath products, maid service three times daily, complimentary worldwide calling, 24-hour in room dining, complimentary overnight laundry service, and a host of upscale inclusions. This Zoetry resort features four gourmet a la carte restaurants and two relaxing bars for a wide range of culinary options.

3. Rendezvous St. Lucia - 100 rooms (adult couples-only)
What we like: Perfect for a honeymoon or romantic getaway. St Lucia is one of the most picturesque destinations in the Caribbean and has been termed “The Hawaii of the Caribbean.” Rendezvous features an intimate setting amidst beautiful botanical gardens, perched on St Lucia’s longest white sand beach. A 150-year-old giant Samaan tree provides a unique centerpiece to this classic resort. Rendezvous touts itself as the “world’s first boutique hotel for couples.” We recommend Rendezvous as a great alternative to the larger, more commercial, chain resorts found on St Lucia.

4. Isla Mujeres Palace - 62 rooms (couples-only)
What we like: The location. Where can you find a unique island setting in Mexico? None other than right off the coast of Cancun. Isla Mujeres, Spanish for “Island of Women,” is a small island once a home to Ixchel, the Mayan goddess of childbirth and medicine. This all inclusive haven features double Jacuzzis in each accommodation and 24-hour room service.  The Palace all inclusive package features $1,500 vacation dollars for use on select activities and tours. This is a major addition to an already impressive package.


5. Azul Beach - 98 rooms (family-friendly)
What we like: Family-friendly boutique hotel. All 98 rooms are steps from the beach and public areas. There is an all-lobster menu, 24-hour room service and unique family inclusions like the loaner baby equipment, Azulitos kid’s club and family-oriented accommodations. Room service even has a kid’s menu! A Fischer-Price toy menu works just like room service.  Make a selection and they are delivered right to your suite. Family movie nights include DVDs, popcorn and beverages brought to your door.  Azul even welcomes the younger guests to the resort with a fruit smoothie and vacation book while the adults are greeted with a Welcome Champagne. Azul is truly unique when it comes to family vacations.
