Plus, if you do your research and opt for the right dates, you can easily snag a deal that could still cost less than some of the lavish wishlist items out there. Scroll through to get details on vacations that work with any budget — and don’t hesitate to book ASAP, as these deals could sell out. Keep in mind, however, that none of these rates include travel, which means you should choose your destination carefully.

The Caribbean

1. Merrils Beach Resort III — Negril, Jamaica

Average Price: $146 per person/night

What’s better than vacationing at a cozy, family-run beachfront property for less than $150 a person? Absolutely nothing. You’ll instantly forget about snow and all the remnants of cold weather as soon as you get to this resort in Negril, Jamaica.

The area’s well-known seven-mile beach is also a less than a 20-minute walk away, and will make you never want to leave. Look at dates in spring 2020 to find prices at this nightly per person rate.

2. Bahia Principe — Punta Cana, Dominican Republic 

Average Price: $134 per person/night

For just $134 per person (two-person occupancy) you’ll get a lavish junior deluxe suite in the Dominican Republic’s Punta Cana. You’ll be welcomed with a cocktail upon arrival and will find luxurious bathrobes and slippers once in your room.

If you register and book through the company’s website, you can even get up to 10% off. Note, this is an adults-only getaway, so budget out a babysitter if you have kids.

Mexico

3. Grand Park Royal Cozumel — Cozumel, Mexico

Average Price: $106 per person/night  

At the Grand Park Royal Cozumel, the budget-friendly price tag offers deluxe nature-view suites. The good thing about this place is, the resort is accommodating of anyone traveling with children.

There are plenty of supervised kid’s activities, including a kids club and babysitting. This could come in handy if you decide to take advantage of any of the resort’s spa services or swim-up bars.

4. Hard Rock Hotel Los Cabos — Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Average Price: $729 per person/night 

The all-inclusive limitless package at this recently opened Mexican location is a new concept introduced by Hard Rock Hotels. In addition to endless alcoholic beverages and meals, you’ll also gain access to unlimited activities and spa treatments during your vacation (hence the higher price tag).

The only thing you have to pay extra for is gratuity, but if you do enough excursions and massages, you can quickly make up for the price of the room. If you really want to live large, perhaps this is the time to do it.

Europe

5. Hotel Green Garden Resort & Suites — Tenerife, Spain

Average Price: $104 per person/night

It’s hard to believe that a garden-view suite in Spain’s Canary Islands is running for only around $100 a person. The rooms have a relaxed Mediterranean vibe complete with a full kitchen and a large inviting terrace.

On top of the all-inclusive experience, guests will be welcomed with a nice bottle of wine upon their arrival.

6. Opio en Provence — Provence, France

Average Price: $174 per person/night 

There’s more to France than Paris, and this all-inclusive resort in Provence should be a travel priority. You can enjoy scenic accommodations along with a nine-hole golf course, gorgeous pools and the region’s largest olive grove where you can, of course, give olive oil making a try.

This is hands down a step up from your average all-inclusive experience.

Southeast Asia

7. Melia Bali — Bali, Indonesia

Average Price: $118 per person/night

Go to Bali for next-level relaxation. This resort has an incredible wellness center with spa treatments designed to revitalize your spirits. While you’ll have to pay extra for a massage, being around such a tranquil space is worth the price of the room.

Moreover, the resort boasts stunning pools, calming outdoor showers, stylish sunken bathtubs and contemporary Balinese architecture that will instantly lift your spirits. When it comes dining, there are five restaurants and three cafes with all kinds of cuisines from which to choose.

Africa

8. Marrakech La Palmeraie — Marrakech, Morocco

Average Price: $175 per person/night

Make this Instagram-worthy destination a reality for someone you care about, and feel free to treat yourself, too. For $175 a person per night, you get access to several restaurants, pool bars and more.

All in all, it’s a fair price to pay to be able to cross this dreamy bucket list location off your list. This rate is mainly available during the spring, so take that into consideration when making the reservation.


If, after all that, you still want to stick with a more traditional gift, make sure to set a Deal Alert with us to stay up-to-date on the latest deal and discount news.
