The Free Perks At These Caribbean Resorts Go Beyond Unlimited Drinks & WiFi

By Kelsey Marie


When staying at resorts, free WiFi and an open bar can feel like the ultimate perks. During my trip to the Dominican Republic a few summers ago, I was in heaven after receiving welcome cocktails and heading to the beach while scrolling my timeline courtesy of the free internet.

However, resorts are aspiring to give travelers so much more. They want to step their game up, providing us with the free perks we really deserve. 

These Caribbean resorts are currently going all out for their travelers — from cooking classes to garden tours; you’re sure to get your money worth with these free perks.


Spice Island Beach Resort is an all-inclusive resort located on Grand Anse Beach in Grenada. This family-owned resort has earned AAA Five Diamonds. 

The free perks here include bike riding, tennis, garden tours, scuba diving, sailing, and cooking classes. 

End your evenings with traditional afternoon tea, served every day free of charge. 

If you and your bae and vacationing on your honeymoon, you can expect a sunset cruise, a bottle of champagne, and a massage at the spa when booking a seven-night stay. 


Divi Aruba and Tamarijn Aruba are both located on Druif Beach and have a combined total of 500 rooms close to the capital city of Oranjestad. Guests are allowed to venture between both properties.

Perks of these all-inclusive resorts include a 30-foot rock climbing wall, windsurfing, bike riding, tennis, and kayaking.

Saint Lucia

Located on the south coast, Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa is the only family-friendly resort on this side of the island and is located extremely close to the Hewanorra International Airport.
