Few settings are as relaxing as a blissful Caribbean beach — until a toddler throws a tantrum because the ocean is too wet or the siblings seated next to you start squabbling over who gets the better sun lounger. Sometimes, adults just want a peaceful beach vacation free from kids. And that’s okay. Fortunately, plenty of Caribbean islands have all-inclusives made just for grown-ups. From the Dominican Republic to the Bahamas, these are the best all-inclusive Caribbean resorts for adults only where your meals, activities, and peace of mind are all taken care of.

We hope you love the all-inclusive adults-only resorts we recommend! Just so you know, Matador may collect a small commission from the links on this page if you decide to book a stay.

1. Secrets Cap Cana Resort & Spa — Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Of all the Caribbean islands, the Dominican Republic is the most visited. And for many visitors, Punta Cana is the first and only stop. All-inclusives are as common as palm trees here, which can make choosing the right one challenging — unless you want an adults-only getaway. Secrets Cap Cana is tucked away in a gated community on Juanillo Beach whose balmy waters are rivaled only by the resort’s lagoon-style infinity pool. Couples are treated like VIPs here, with special promos for honeymoons, anniversaries, vow renewals, and even elopements, although the girlfriend’s getaway package is pretty enticing too.

2. The Caves Hotel — Negril, Jamaica

Unlike the massive, multi-story resorts many of us associate with all-inclusives, The Caves Hotel promises a boutique experience and a cliffside setting that blends right into the scenery, with a front-row view to the iconic neighboring Negril lighthouse. The hotel only has 12 cottages and suites. The rest of the property is devoted to lush gardens; enchanting grottos, one of which houses a rum bar; a romantic cavern restaurant, a saltwater pool and oceanview whirlpool, and a full-service Aveda spa. Although there’s no beach access, water sports ranging from snorkeling and kayaking to cliff-jumping are all on offer here.

There’s plenty to do without ever leaving the property, from the resort’s three pools and restaurants to its four bars and lounges. When you do decide to venture into Maho Village, test your luck at neighboring Casino Royale, the island’s largest gaming emporium.

Rubbing elbows with some of the finest luxury accommodations in Aruba, Hotel Riu Palace Antillas is located on Palm Beach, one of the most popular spots on the island to dine and drink, shop for souvenirs, and try just about any water sport under the Caribbean sun, from banana boating and parasailing to water skiing and flyboarding. While the beach can get crowded, booking a room at this resort ensures you’ll get a spot in the sand. Better yet, spring breakers are not permitted here as they are at some other Hotel Rui properties, so you can rest assured that the resort’s dancefloor, casino, and nightlife will be fun without being overrun by students.

Location is everything at the Cocobay Resort on Antigua’s west coast.

Immediately surrounding the resort are no fewer than six spectacular beaches, and the fun-packed Jolly Harbor complex is just a few minutes away for golfers, tennis players, boaters, shoppers, casino-goers, and bar-hoppers. Back at the resort, guests stay in beautiful hillside cottages that put the island’s natural splendor on full display.

A pioneering all-inclusive brand, Club Med knows what it takes to create a resort that keeps guests coming back. Turkoise is no exception, starting with its gorgeous location in Grace Bay next to a turquoise lagoon. Scuba divers are among the travelers who’d be wise to snap up a room here as the Turks and Caicos is known for coral walls and sunken wrecks that the resort is happy to help divers explore. But the excitement doesn’t stop there. Energetic travelers can participate in a long list of beachy activities here — including a heart-pumping flying trapeze.
