Who doesn’t love a good Florida trip? Whether it’s visiting its iconic beach fronts, one of its many cities, and, of course, the full Disney experience, there’s something for everyone in this state.

However, when it comes to covering the basics of day-to-day, no one wants to have to manage the boring details. Keeping track of your budget, making sure that you’ve always got food planned out, and not getting bored.

These are things that no one wants to do on a big holiday, even if they have to do it.

Enter: the all-inclusive vacation and hotel. Covering all your needs, from food, to drink, to even entertainment, these accommodations allow you to forget about the little details, and instead fully focus on enjoying your holiday to the fullest.

Sounds great, and it is. But there’s just one problem: Florida has so many all and nearly all-inclusive hotels, that picking out just one or two to look at more can be a real hassle.

Luckily for you, our guide cuts out the mediocre and the okay, leaving you with just the best options to pick from.

1. Little Palm Island Resort And Spa

Starting with perhaps one of the most iconic hotels in Florida, we have Little Palm Island Resort and Spa.

Even though it’s close to the overseas Florida highway, you’ll find that this calming little hotel resort is surprisingly secluded, thanks in part to it being located on a private island in the Florida Keys, nestled among the state’s natural wildlife.

Heck, you might even catch a little bit of it yourself, between enjoying a good piña colada and swimming or sitting on a sun lounge.

You’ll be ferried to the resort via the resort’s dedicated motor yacht, in case you wanted to know the level of luxury that you’ll be dealing it.

From here, you’ll be able to enjoy pretty much everything that the resort and the surrounding tropical waters offer.

With a fleet of ways to enjoy the warm waters around you, from paddleboards to kayaks, to even Boston Wahler ships to explore the island and waves with.

Alternatively, if open water isn’t your thing, then perhaps the copper tubs and outdoor (though still private, obviously) showers will be much more your thing.

And, of course, if you upgrade, you’ll also have dinner, lunch, breakfast, and all your food and drinks needs covered too.

There’s even a Balinese-style outdoor and indoor spa for you to enjoy.

So, if you’re looking for a quiet slice of tropical paradise for your next all-inclusive holiday, Little Palm Island should be high on your list of choices!

2. Fort Lauderdale Marriot Harbor

Of course, if you’re going to be staying on the Florida coastline, then you’re going to want a hotel with a nice stretch of said coast to enjoy at your leisure.

That’s exactly what Fort Lauderdale Marriot Harbor has to offer, and plenty of it at that. With a quarter mile of white sand beach to lounge on, explore and enjoy, there’s plenty of that beautiful shore for every guest to enjoy.

Of course, a pretty beach does not a good hotel make. Fort Lauderdale has so much more to offer besides that.

If saltwater swimming isn’t your thing, then you’re free to enjoy one of the many pools that the hotel has to offer, alongside jet-skiing opportunities, and a ton of other water sports for you to enjoy.

And that’s not even mentioning the fine-dining opportunities that you’ll get to have here. From premium meat recipes to freshly caught seafood, to a whole host of local delicacies, you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to food here.

Plus, if you feel like you want to experience a little more of what Florida has to offer, you aren’t stuck in the resort, either. There’s plenty to see and discover in the area, from Las Bolas Boulevard to GulfStream Park.

Then again, with on-site activities and all-inclusive hotels like Fort Lauderdale to enjoy, why would you want to leave this lap of luxury?

3. Sandpiper Bay Resort

Of course, the beachfront and open ocean is just one way to enjoy Florida. With a state as naturally beautiful as this, there are a ton of places where you’ll find amazing resorts to appreciate these natural hot spots.

Sandpiper Bay Resort is one of those places, and the perfect all-inclusive holiday for both couples and families to check out!

Outside of the shorefront and pools, there are tons of activities that you can get up to at Sandpiper Bay, from tennis to golf, sailing, and so much more.

The kids are covered with the kid’s club that the resort runs, giving adults a chance to enjoy a moment in the adults-only pool.

And the fun doesn’t stop at sundown. If anything, the hotel comes to life at night, where you’ll find all kinds of live entertainment on offer, from live bands to comedy acts, and even musicals.

And the restaurant is incredible too, with 3 different restaurants found on site to pick from, each one packed with delectable delight for you to try out and enjoy (the white chocolate bread is a particular favourite of ours!

4. Bungalows Key Largo

If you’re looking for an all-inclusive hotel experience that is perfectly tailored to adults, you’ve come to the right place with Bungalows Key Largo!

Located just an hour away from Miami airport, this resort is easy for anyone to get to and boasts an amazing service for adult-age guests.

From premium cocktails to fine dining, everything is included in this resort. So, don’t feel stingy for asking or reaching for second helpings of Martinis, gourmet dinners, and… well, pretty much anything!

While we wouldn’t recommend this all-inclusive hotel for families with kids, or larger parties, it’s the perfect resort to check out for small and mid-sized groups.

Especially if you’re a lover of fine dining, tiki bars, and live entertainment in the evenings!

5. LEGOLAND Hotels

Of course, all-inclusive resorts shouldn’t just be the indulgence of romantic couple getaways. Family holidays should also enjoy a little bit of life in the lap of luxury.

But that also means finding a resort that caters to kids just as much as it does to adults.

Luckily, there are plenty that you’ll find across the state to check out. If you’re looking for one that is geared toward young kids and families, then LEGOLAND is always a safe choice to pick!

Situated in Orlando, not only is this hotel resort easy to access, but it’s also close to pretty much everywhere else in the area that you could want to visit. This is Orlando, after all!

However, given the amazing resort you’ll be staying at here, you may not even want to leave!

With three properties to choose from, all with different themes (LEGOLAND Hotel, LEGOLAND Pirate Island Hotel, and LEGOLAND Beach Resort), you’ll have your work cut out by picking just one!

A stay at one of LEGOLAND’s hotels will also give you access to the theme park resorts around the state, as well as tickets to the water parks, including the mini golf and other on-site facilities. Sounds pretty good, right?

But that’s not all. With separate kid’s sleeping areas, heated pools, and free Lego-building workshops, there are a ton of things to do in the hotels as well!

And, of course, the food and drinks are on LEGOLAND. This is an all-inclusive holiday, after all!

So, if it’s child-friendly entertainment that you’re looking for, you can’t do better than LEGOLAND for family fun in Orlando!

Well, except for maybe one place…

6. Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge

I mean, how could we go through a list of all-inclusive resorts and hotels, without bringing up one of the main reasons that many people fly into Florida to begin with?

Disney offers a ton of different styles of hotel resorts to check out in Florida, that will appeal to a wide range of holiday experiences and preferences, and pretty much all of them being all-inclusive.

For us, the winner of these many amazing hotels has to be the Animal Kingdom lodge resort. I mean, how can you go wrong with a wake-up call from a giraffe nibbling on the plants outside your window?

Of course, Disney’s on-site facilities are second-to-none, especially when it comes to making sure parents and kids are having a good time. On-site heated pools and water slides, outdoor movies, food, and drinks are all covered.

And, of course, a range of safari animals to watch and enjoy!

Plus, you’ll even get shuttle and park tickets to Disney World, Florida. You can’t get much better than that!

So, if you’re someone that loves a little Disney Magic on your holiday (and let’s be honest, you’re in Florida. It’s going to be on your mind), you can’t go wrong with the Animal Kingdom Lodge!
