Consider an All-Inclusive Resort for Your Romantic Getaway

An incredible honeymoon, anniversary, or just alone time is something most couple’s desire. There’s nothing like getting away from the “noise” and being on vacation, spending time with that special someone. Toes in the sand, drink in your hand, and your love by your side… what is better than that? Not much! Whether you like to relax or have an adventure, all-inclusive vacations are the way to go for a special romantic getaway.

You deserve the all-inclusive romantic getaway of your dreams. We’re going to take you on a journey to describe what an all-inclusive vacation means, explain why you should have a romantic getaway, and show you some great all-inclusive resorts. We’re partnering with Apple Vacations to give one lucky person a Romantic Getaway for two with a 5-night stay at the incredible RIU Palace Macao in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic! Watch out for more details on this in September.

What is an all-inclusive vacation?

An all-inclusive vacation means everything is included! Most of the time all food, drinks, activities, and entertainment are already included. You can drink and eat as much as you please. Count us in! Some resorts even include round trip airport transfers, which means no hassle finding transportation. Many resorts tend to differ with what is included. Also, resort styles and atmospheres differ – some are more romantic, laid-back, adventurous and even family-friendly, so be sure to choose one that fits your needs.

Why choose all-inclusive?

All-inclusive is super easy! Almost everything is already paid for and included in your price before you leave for your trip. Your planning time is trimmed because you don’t need to worry about activities or restaurants because they are already included. There’s really no reason to leave your resort unless you choose to explore other places.

When staying at an all-inclusive resort you don’t need to walk around with your wallet or purse or worry about tipping- everything is already taken care of. This allows for a more relaxing vacation since you’re not paying for every indulgence. You and your sweetheart can just sit back, relax, and enjoy the limitless food, drinks, and more!

Why have a romantic getaway?

Romantic getaways are fun, exciting, relaxing, and most of all they bring people closer. When you’re on a romantic getaway you’re away from every day life with someone you love. Being away from life’s hassles allows for quality bonding time with your partner. A relaxing and fun environment can lead to more open communication and build relationships. In addition, intimacy can be restored after just a few days of alone time. Doesn’t that sound incredible?

A romantic getaway will help you continue your incredible relationship and keep the relationship strong. You’ll be reminded of why you fell in love with your partner in the first place. It’s a time for you to create amazing and unforgettable memories with your love.

All-Inclusive Resorts Make Vacations Easy

When you consider your next vacation, don’t forget about all-inclusive resorts. No matter how you say it – the works, the whole nine, the full monty, the whole shebang – that’s what you’ll get with an all-inclusive resort. Ask anyone who’s been to one and they can’t stop raving about it.
Here are a few reasons we can’t get enough of an all-inclusive vacation.

Leave the wallet at home (well, OK maybe not literally)

It’s rare to go on a vacation knowing exactly how much you’re going to spend. When you book an all-inclusive Apple Vacation with Boscov’s Travel, everything’s included so you know you’re within budget from the moment you leave.

Everything but the kitchen sink (yup, yet another way to say you want it all)

It’s in the name. All included means just that – from the flights and transfers to the resort, hotel accommodations to the daily entertainment, all meals and open bar, and any number of activities, it’s all one price. What could be simpler?

So many choices

With so many options including destinations, price points, and activities, it’s important to think about ways to narrow down your selection. Our suggestion is to start with your traveling party. Are you taking the family, is it a girls or guys getaway, or are you looking for a couples-only resort? Are you looking for fun around every corner with endless activities, or are you looking to relax and escape to a retreat? The following guide can help you zoom in on what will work best.
– If you’re looking for family-friendly resorts: Sunscape ($), Now ($), Dreams ($$)
– If you’re looking for adults and couples only + parties around every corner: Riu Palace ($$), Breathless ($$)
– If you’re looking for couples only + relaxation: Secrets ($$), Zoetry ($$$)

Optional adventures abound!

Want to see more than just the resort? Sign up for optional excursions before you go with your Boscov’s Travel Advisor or at the resort with a dedicated AMResort representative. Here are just a few things to see and do in some of our favorite destinations:
Cancun, Mexico:
– Submarine ride to see one of the longest reefs in the world
– Swim with dolphins and meet a manatee
– Take a private fishing charter and cheers with included beer
– Explore Tulum’s ancient Mayan temples
– Zipline through the jungle
– Enjoy a leisurely afternoon on a catamaran
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic:
– Take to the high seas on a real life pirate ship and enjoy a show with your favorite scalawags
– Savor the scenery on a dinner cruise
– Learn about the culture on a heritage trip to an artisan village, cigar rolling factory and more
– Dance the night away in a cave converted to a discotheque
– Ride a horse through the countryside
– Take a trip to a private snorkeling and swimming spot
Montego Bay, Jamaica:
– Wade in the luminous lagoon, one of the most famous glowing lagoons

– Horseback ride in the water

What to bring?

– Sunscreen! The Caribbean is full of sunny days so be sure to pack a (Banana) boat-load! Of course if you do forget the lotion, you can always purchase at the resort gift shop…but expect to pay a premium.
– Your favorite sun hat (did we mention the sun?!)
– A copy of your booking – this will help ease the check-in process
– Break out your brightest, loudest, most fun beach towel! The resort will always have towels for you to use but if you want to find your chair easily, it’s best to mark with the your towel
– Dollar bills. Though you don’t need to, you may want to tip your favorite bartender or the helpful service staff. Perhaps you’ll want to enjoy a massage at the spa or go on an excursion, so having a few extra dollars isn’t a bad idea. Of course, none of these are required.
– Some dress-to-impress attire. Most resorts have specialty dining restaurants where you can enjoy French, Italian or Thai cuisine. Often resorts require nicer attire when dining at these special restaurants. If you prefer to stay casual, you can always hit the buffet or beach-side grills.
So who’s ready to go? You can learn more about all-inclusive vacation options on our website, and when you’re ready to travel, contact your local Boscov’s Travel office and make an appointment to talk to one of our all-inclusive specialists. Let us help make your dream vacation a reality.

Honeymoon Ideas: Determine Your Couple Travel Style and Start Here

You said yes to the ring, the guy and your happily ever after. Now the best part…. planning your first official vacation as Mr. + Mrs.

There’s a honeymoon destination perfect for each and every couple. We broke down the types of couples and vacation types to help you decide where you should honeymoon.

  1. Honeymoon Destinations for the Romantic Couple
    Oui! One of the most romantic places on earth is Paris. Enjoy time in the City of Lights by visiting cafes, museums, sitting along the banks of the Seine, or taking a day trip on a scooter to the French countryside to savor the wines of the region.
    If you’d prefer to go somewhere tropical, consider an over water bungalow in Bora Bora, Tahiti and the Maldives. Until recently, these were the only options, but now there are bungalows in the Caribbean a little closer to home. Consider Sandals Royal Caribbean or South Coast resorts in Jamaica, El Dorado Maroma by Karisma in the Riviera Maya, Mexico, or Sandals Grande St. Lucian in St. Lucia.
  2. Honeymoon Destinations on a Budget
    We get it… weddings are expensive! Sometimes getting your dream wedding means there’s a little less for your honeymoon, but there are really stunning destinations just a non-stop flight away where you won’t feel like you’re sacrificing anything. Consider resorts near Cancun, Mexico or Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Just beyond Cancun, you can enjoy beautiful resorts without the loud, party-like atmosphere associated with the spring break hot spot. These destinations are traditionally lower than other Caribbean countries or European travel. Save further by reducing the number of nights to 4, 5 or 6 instead of the traditional 7. Best of all, many of the resorts in these destinations are all-inclusive meaning you pay one up-front price for flights, accommodations, all meals, open bar, onsite entertainment, select non-motorized water sports, and more.
  3. Honeymoon Destinations in the USA
    Leave the passport at home! This country has beautiful destinations and experiences you won’t find anywhere else. For the party-loving couple, Vegas is calling! Room rates for the past few years have been consistently affordable and you can get special perks when you spend your time in the casino. For the Disney-loving couple, the answer is clear. For the couple that wants a romantic vacation, experience the charm of the south with historic destinations like Savannah or Charleston.
  4. Honeymoon Destinations for the Adventurous Couple
    If you want to stay close to home, consider adding National Parks to your list. The Western United States offers adventure and a high concentration of our national treasures giving you lots of options to see the best of the US. Consider the Grand Circle where you can visit Zion and Bryce Canyon, Arches and Canyonlands, the Grand Canyon, Capital Reef, and more! Alaska offers another destination for the adventure loving (or photographic) couple. If you’re looking for an adventure a little more off the beaten path, consider hiking the Incan trail with the payoff Machu Picchu at the end.

We’re here to help you navigate the options for finding and planning your honeymoon. Plus with our honeymoon registry fund, we make it easy for others to give the gift towards your happily ever after.  You can even choose to make payments on your honeymoon with our special financing on your next vacation. Or, bag the whole traditional wedding idea and say “I do” in paradise with a destination wedding! Whatever you choose, Boscov’s Travel is here for you.
