When food and fun are part of the package, you can spend less time planning. All that’s left to do? Get there.
Fun-filled all-inclusive vacations that require little planning.
The deal: Starting at $148 per adult, per night, for a visit in October, a stay at this 1,200-acre resort in the Pocono Mountains comes with a rustic or contemporary room, a daily-changing menu with kidfriendly options, and a choice of dozens of outdoor activities.
Why we love it: It’s impossible to be bored here. There’s water-skiing, kayaking, sailing, swimming and hiking during summer, and snow tubing, snowshoeing and ice skating during winter. Mealtime serves up family bonding, with food presented on platters, meant to be passed around the table. This year, the resort unveiled a 9,000-square-foot open-year-round ice rink, a junior go-kart track for guests 48 to 58 inches tall, two escape rooms, and a Broadway-style show featuring themed acts such as Mardi Gras and the circus, in celebration of the resort’s 60th anniversary.
The deal: Starting at $400 per room, per night, for a family of four, guests get lavish accommodations, a variety of dining options such as Mexican and Brazilian cuisine, and access to several pools and a private, whitesand beach. Book a stay before June 14 with the promo code UEH to save up to 38 percent.
Why we love it: This massive fivestar hotel makes families feel like royalty. Every room features a hydro spa tub, flat-screen satellite TV, free Wi-Fi and a fully stocked mini bar, and the hotel offers free 24-hour room service. Opened just last year, the 29,000-square-foot action-sport facility lets guests snowboard, ski and skate, all indoors. Other bonuses: a kid’s pool, kid’s room service menu and children’s program, and adults-only restaurants and pools for when you want couple time. For an additional cost, the hotel arranges transportation to and from Cancun International Airport, one hour away from the property.
