Bookit [bookit.com ] has some crazy deals right now for all-inclusives until Friday (click the 99 hour sale). Specifically, Occidental Grand Aruba with a $500 resort credit is the cheapest I have ever seen it and is probably the best all-inclusive of which I know. I have been here 3 times and cannot wait to go back.

why do you need a $500 resort credit for an all-inclusive resort?

This is actually a very good question, and a question I get a lot from my clients!
At some all inclusive resorts that offer "proper" resort credit (NOT coupons, which some do and are nothing more than "marketing gimmicks"), you can use them for things not included in an all inclusive package and things you may normally do on vacation anyway - things like golf, romantic beachfront dinners, tours and excursions, and spa treatments.

  If you're at a resort that uses "proper" english, all that stuff is included in the "all-inclusive" price.
But I get it, especially spa treatments.

  LOL. (although not entirely sure what you mean by proper English...)
Out of the hundreds of all inclusive resorts that I have personally visited, I know of only two chains that offer that type of resort credit.  You think most do?
