FAQ: All Inclusive Florida Family Resorts 

Are There Any True All-Inclusive Resorts in Florida?

Surprisingly, Florida doesn't overflow with all-inclusive options the way some Caribbean destinations do. However, yes, a few true gems exist. Club Med Sandpiper Bay in Port St. Lucie also recently changed hands, but we do list some that have great packages here and on our Florida all-inclusive resorts page. 

What Are the Options for All-Inclusive Family Resorts on the Gulf Coast?

The Gulf Coast, known for its softer waves and sun-kissed skies, isn't teeming with all-inclusive resorts. But properties like South Seas Island Resort on Captiva Island do offer all-inclusive packages, and it's ideal for families craving a balance between nature and luxury. Also check out Clearwater Beach all-inclusive resorts, Destin Florida all-inclusive resorts, and even Pensacola all-inclusive resorts, all of which are rich in family focused activities.

What About Family All-Inclusive Resorts in the Florida Keys?

Answer

Answer: Orlando, the land of amusement parks, doesn't really play the all-inclusive game. However, you can find some resorts like the Four Seasons Resort Orlando that offer meal packages. Not strictly all-inclusive, but they ease the stress of planning meals around your theme park escapades. Fortunately there are many other resorts in Orlando that offer packages like this, and we have put together a review.  These aren't strictly all-inclusive but do alleviate the need to venture out for meals.

Answer: Hawks Cay Resort in Duck Key offers packages that approach an all-inclusive experience. With a wide range of activities suited for kids, it's a solid option for families, despite not being an all-inclusive resort in the traditional sense.

What Are the Budget-Friendly All-Inclusive Family Resorts in the Florida Panhandle?

Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort offers all-inclusive-like packages in Destin that cater to families, offering a mix of activities and dining options without breaking the bank.

Answer: While Destin is more synonymous with luxury rentals and beachfront hotels, Henderson Park Inn does offer meal plans that are accommodating to families. Though not all-inclusive per se, these plans simplify your stay when it comes to food and beverage.

Is There an All-Inclusive Resort Suited for Multi-Generational Families?

Answer: South Seas Island Resort (see Sanibel Island All Inclusive Family Resorts) offers an experience that can be tailored to be nearly all-inclusive and provides activities that can be enjoyed by both young kids and grandparents. The spacious villas and variety of dining options make it comfortable for extended families.

What's the Best Time to Book an All-Inclusive Family Resort in Florida?

Answer: Ideally, you'd aim for the shoulder seasons—late April to June and September to November. The weather is pleasant, the crowds are thinner, and you may catch some early-bird or last-minute offers. Just keep an eye out for hurricane season.

Is All-Inclusive Really "All-Inclusive"?

Answer: You'll want to read the fine print. Most resorts in Florida offer varying levels of “all-inclusive” with some activities and premium dining options at an additional cost. Always verify what's included in your package. We say there are not any real all-inclusive family resorts in the traditional sense, but some get pretty close with the packages they offer to what you could expect in say the Caribbean. Resorts know this is what many guests want, but the Economics don't stack up in the mainland USA all-inclusive resorts offerings. 

How About Teens? Are They Going to be Bored?

Answer: Far from it. Resorts like Hawks Cay in Duck Key have offerings such as teen adventure camps, water sports, and even teen-only lounges, ensuring that the older kids are as entertained as the younger ones. 

Are There Any Hidden Fees I Should Know About?

Resorts often tack on "resort fees," which are not always included in the all-inclusive price. Additionally, spa treatments, premium dining options, and certain activities may cost extra. Always check the inclusions and exclusions.

Florida Keys resorts for Families

Best Florida Keys Family Resort Where Kids Stay Free: Oceans Edge Resort & Marina Key West

This new Florida Keys hotel, is run by a family and completely geared towards families. Kids can enjoy six huge pool, family friendly restaurants and easy access to the islands: accompanied by parents of course. 

What we love about this new resort is that it seems to have revived some old charm of Key West as a family vacation destination. 

Note: At the time of writing kids stay free, and I don't expect they will change this anytime soon given the commitment to family vacations.
