Looking for advice on the best all-inclusive Marriott resorts. Stayed at the Marriott Casa Magna Concun this year and really enjoyed it. Looking for another. Any advice/experience?
We stayed at the St Kitts Marriott and really enjoyed ourselves. A good variety of restaurants. Breakfast was at the buffet or you could order off menu. Lunch at buffet, bar inside with light bites, or pizza. Dinner choices, pizza, steakhouse (high end), seafood (ocean views), Italian (great antipasto bar), themed buffets (didn't try). They were working on another restaurant while we were there. Ocean front, palapas on beach (free), large pool with swim-up bar and two other pools. There is a main building and then out buildings allowing for lots of privacy. Shopping inside the hotel. Loved the cigar bar. Can take a quick trip into town to do duty free shopping, railway, forts, etc.
saluzzo, I can't speak to each all-inclusive resort we have but if use our Vacation Planner tool: http://www.marriott.com/explore-and-plan/vacationplanner.mi you can select resorts (and even narrow by a location or another amenity if you wish) to at least see what your options are. Good luck with your travel planning!
Can you use points to pay for all parts of the inclusive resort excluding the airfare?
Thanks in advance!
We no longer have all-inclusive rewards. The closest thing we have now would be travel packages for hotel & airfare and then you can redeem for a dining card or general Marriott gift card to create your own all-inclusive.

Thanks for this information, but it should be clearly noted on the different websites. When I called up Customer Service, the guy I spoke to even thought it meant everything inclusive of meals, exclusive of airfare. So if your own employees are confused, why not clearly denote this. Also, by judging by thr various discussions on this site, it appears that many are confused, or feel they are being misled.
That's a good point. We're looking into ways we can make this clearer because we understand how it can be confusing to shop, compare, or even understand some our packages. We'll also reach out to our customer service teams to try to improve the training on their end. Thanks!
An easy way to clear the air here, is to put an asterisk next to the words "all inclusive". Then provide clarification that meals are excluded.
To my knowledge we don't reference our Rewards travel packages (that you can use points for) as all-inclusive. It would be really helpful if you could send me the link of the information you are looking at that seems unclear. Much appreciated!
If you are looking for nice locations and very good all inclusive I would recommend Curacao Marriott resort or the two in Aruba. They take great care of you and there are quite a lot of restaurants to choose from. At the Stelaris Hotel and Casino you have many restaurants to choose from and an excellent buffet in the mornings, afternoons and evenings. As well as some local pubs and out on the beach. Curacao was wonderful as well but it is a smaller Island with a few less options for food. The people on both islands are great and make you feel very welcome. The climate is consistent and wonderful. Both all in-clusives gave us all we needed and was easy to handle. Just put it on your room tab and it never shows up.
Which Curacao Marriott did you stay at? What did you like and dislike about the hotel?
