Best All-Inclusive Resorts in Jamaica with Unexpected Amenities

When it comes to all-inclusive innovation, Jamaica takes the lead. Many resorts offer plans where everything is included, and they continuously find new ways to draw tired masses craving relaxation - defying stereotypes along the way. Add to that the island's near-constant sunshine, and it's no wonder travelers choose it as the top pick for value. it's a race to the high end. And the winner is ... you.

Couples Tower Isle, Ocho Rios

The single best way to set your all-inclusive resort apart might be ignoring the reputation of second-rate dining. head chef Stefan Spath says he took the job on one condition: that management let him serve top-notch cuisine. And he does, producing an orchestrated fusion of flavors - Asian, French, Caribbean - hundreds of plates at a time. The organizational rigor and sure-handed cooking are certainly impressive. Plus, the property's beachfront location - with four pools, two swim-up bars, a spa and a private island for, ahem, natural sunbathing - doesn't hurt, either. What else is included? Golf, scuba diving, an evening catamaran sail (with rum punch, of course), and island excursions to popular sites like Dunn's River Falls. Couples also employs a "Chief Romance Officer" charged with maintaining this romantic atmosphere; just bring your partner. Book flights along with your stay for additional savings. * From $355 per couple per night;

The Caves Hotel & Spa, Negril

Another all-inclusive cliche: spiritless resort architecture. But The Caves, an Island Outpost joint, turns that on its white-stucco head. Guest rooms (only 12 of them, another rarity in this category) are built into the limestone cliffs above the water on Jamaica's boho-chic West End, so the best inclusion here is this one-of-a-kind setting where you can dine in a private cave. Cliff jumps and ocean rafts, bicycles, yoga classes, Jacuzzi and the cliff's edge, dolphin sightings and 7 miles of prime beach - those are included as well. *From $480 per couple per night;
