If you are looking for the cheapest possible all-inclusive Caribbean vacation you should head to Cancun or the Dominican Republic or even Jamaica. But if you want something a bit special and exotic you’ll want to head to one of the smaller islands. The prices of the resorts there tend to be higher, but it’s worth it to many travelers because the product is more memorable and interesting.
With that in mind, you can still get fantastic deals on some of the smaller islands, including this deal for US$293 per night at the Casuarina Beach Resort All Inclusive in Barbados. You’ll normally be paying close to US$500 per night for even the cheapest all inclusive resorts on this island, so this deal stands out.
A Standard Room at the Casuarina Beach Resort All Inclusive on Barbados for only US$293 for two people. A Deluxe Gardenview is US$307 per night, a Superior Deluxe Gardenview is US$333 per night, and a Superior Deluxe Oceanview is US$387 per night.
This promotion is through Expedia, our booking partner, and it includes free cancellation. There is no minimum stay required to qualify for this rate, but of course availability is limited depending on number of rooms left.
Three resorts in one and family friendly
The Almond Casuarina Beach Resort is one of three related resorts in the same area in Barbados, and there is a free shuttle between them so guests can enjoy the facilities at any of them, including the piano bar and nightclub at the other resorts. This feature is a key because the main complaint that people seem to have about all-inclusive resorts is that they feel a bit trapped in the same place the whole time.
More good news comes in that this resort is very family friendly, with a Kids Club a separate childrens’ swimming pool, and supervised activities. There’s a fitness center for the adults, but more importantly there’s a huge swimming pool with a swim-up bar (and complimentary drinks!)
Many room choices in different price ranges
Out of the 280 rooms, there are the 4 categories mentioned above, as well as one-bedroom suites facing both directions for a bit more. It’s obviously quite amazing to find an all-inclusive resort in Barbados for under US$300 per night, and for people who plan on spending most of their time by the pool or down on the beach, it’s good to have that option.
But if you are the type to spend more time in your room, you can pay just a bit more and get a larger room that faces the pool or garden, or more than that and get an amazing ocean view. Some people like to break up a stay by saving money with a cheaper room for part of the week and splurging on a more expensive room or view for the rest. At many resorts you can’t do that, but here it might save you a lot. After all, even the best sea view looks the same on the 5th, 6th, and 7th days, and you can save a few hundred dollars with a pool view for part of your trip.
