All-inclusive vacations are a fantastic idea for family trips because of the money you could save by including food and drink in the price of your vacation. This resort-style trip has become increasingly popular in the last several years, especially with so many of the major hotel chains adding them to their portfolios.
However, what about travelers who don’t have kids? Even better, what about those that just don’t want kids around at their resort? There’s a time and a place when all you want is a quiet place to relax and enjoy your partner or friends on a group trip.
There are plenty of fabulous adults-only all-inclusive resorts to choose from. Here’s our complete guide to choosing the right one for you.
There’s really only 1 rule per se when it comes to an adults-only all-inclusive resort: all guests must be at least 18 years old. Usually. As you’ll see, some resorts in Europe call themselves adults-only but allow guests as young as 14 years old. Those in their late 20s and beyond might be put off by an 18 and over crowd, but it’s true that in most places outside of the U.S., the drinking age is 18, and guests of that age are thus treated as adults.
Adults-only all-inclusive resorts work the same way as those all-inclusive resorts that allow children or those under 18 years old. For the rate you pay per night, you receive food and drinks as well as most on-property amenities like a pool, fitness center, and water sports equipment rentals.
Some adults-only resorts take it a step further and require that all guests be in a couple, meaning they do not allow solo travelers. Another niche of this resort style is “au naturel,” or areas of the resort that are clothing optional or no clothing allowed. You’re not going to find that at a family-friendly all-inclusive resort.
All-inclusive resorts are plentiful in the Caribbean and Mexico, but they can also be found in Central America, Europe, and the U.S.
It’s easy to see if an all-inclusive resort is adults-only because it will typically be prominently displayed on their website.Hot Tip:

You could also elect to use a credit card that earns bonus points on travel booked anywhere. The Chase Sapphire Reserve® earns 3x points per dollar on travel and comes with an annual travel statement credit of $300.
There are adults-only all-inclusive resort options for any type of traveler, whether you prefer the beach or the mountains. Keep in mind that some adults-only resorts in Europe allow guests as young as 14 years old to stay, while others have a minimum age requirement of 21 years old. Either way, you’re bound to have a relaxing vacation solo, with a partner, or with a group.
No, Secrets Resorts are not generally clothing optional. You can find clothing-optional resorts by searching for “au naturel.”
An adults-only hotel means that children or those under 18 are generally not allowed. As some of the hotels and resorts on our list will show you, however, sometimes “adult” means as young as 14 years old.
As the name would suggest, couples resorts are only for couples as well as adults only. Single travelers are not allowed at couples resorts.
At an adults-only resort, you can expect more luxurious accommodations and fewer kid-friendly amenities. For example, an adults-only resort isn’t likely to have water slides and definitely won’t have a kids’ club.
