Puerto Vallarta, Mexico | Starting at 70,000 points | Accessible via Puerto Vallarta International Airport
The Hilton Puerto Vallarta Resort is one of two Hilton all-inclsuive hotels in Mexico. It is located in the heart of the Puerto Vallarta hotel zone just north of downtown. The beachfront hotel along the Bay of Banderas features six restaurants and four bars. The sprawling pools are nestled in between the hotel’s buildings.
This Hilton also has an adults-only section called The Hacienda. It almost seems like a different property. Made up of 192 junior suites, The Hacienda has two swimming pools, a few places to eat, a swim-up bar, a sky bar, and a library. Guests will have private butler service, as well.
The hotel is one of the closest to hotels to the Puerto Vallarta International Airport. If you’re looking for a way to get to Mexico for cheap, the Aeromexico Visa card has a companion pass could save money.
Playa del Carmen, Mexico | Starts at 131,000 points | Accessible via Cancun International Airport (75 minute drive)
This Hilton all-inclusive hotel is an adults-only property that is both downtown and beachfront in Playa del Carmen. All 500 rooms in the property are suites with each having a private balcony or small terrace.
There are 10 restaurants and bars through the property. For those wanting to get the vibe of Playa del Carmen, the resort is located adjacent to Fifth Avenue which sports plenty of local cuisine options as well.
The buildings surround a meandering pool which eventually opens up to the beach. All of this won’t come cheap, though, with point redemptions starting at 131,000 points per night. For reference, a cash stay for a Friday night in May for two adults was going for $386.
Montego Bay, Jamaica | Starts at 83,000 points | Accessible via Sangster International Airport
This Hilton all-inclusive hotel is a beachfront resort just minutes from Montego Bay. There is a traditional pool nestled between the resort wings, but the resort also boasts the Sugar Mill Falls Water Park. There is a 280-foot water slide, lazy rivers, swim-up bar, three pools, lagoons, and waterfalls.
The resort even hosts a rum mixology class for guests to go along with traditional activities like kayaking and beach volleyball.
The resort is along the longest, white-sand beach in Jamaica spanning 2,500 feet.
La Romana, Dominican Republic| Starts at 46,000 points | Accessible via La Romana International Airport or Punta Cana International Airport
If you’re looking for an all-inclusive destination for your family, the Hilton La Romana could be a good option for you, however, you will need to pay for kids.
Children up to 2, stay and eat free, ages 3 – 12 incur an additional $95/night/child (paid at check-in), ages 13 and older will be charged an adult rate. It looks like, based on some fake bookings, that the charge for kids at booking process are a little cheaper and the $95 is a penalty for not originally booking with them.
This resort is adjacent to the adults-only section of the Hilton La Romana. While many of the rooms are located off the beach in the jungle, the private beaches and many pools are just a short walk away.
There are five restaurants for guests to pick from along with several other coffee chops and bars.
La Romana, Dominican Republic| Starts at 35,000 points | Accessible via La Romana International Airport or Punta Cana International Airport
Located on the southeast coast of the Dominican Republic, the Hilton La Romana has an adult-only section of its all-inclusive resort. The two sections are able to be booked as two separate resorts.
While it is located on the beach, the resort is surrounded by a jungle. Each room has a balcony or terrace, although given how the resort is positioned, most rooms have views of the grounds and not the ocean.
The Hilton La Romana has both an adults-only section and a family-friendly section. The adult side has access to 11 restaurants and 8 bars, but guests also have the ability to order room service and use the minibar in each room.
The resort has a private beach but a public beach is also easily accessible by a short walk. Best of all, the resort is accessible by two different airports. It’s a 20-minute drive from La Romana International Airport and a 50-minute drive from Punta Cana International Airport.
This is a really reasonably priced Hilton all-inclusive hotel option for those wanting a little time in the sun.
Sarigerme, Turkey | Starts at 70,000 points | Accessible via Dalaman International Airport
The Hilton Dalaman Sarigerme Resort & Spa is located east of the Sarigerme city center in Turkey. The all-inclusive rate includes just the buffet for meals as well as snacks. The rate includes a minibar in each room as well as local alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. This includes some imported drinks, too.
There are per-person charges for many of the ala carte restaurants, foreign beers, most wine, all champagne and premium alcoholic drinks. Water sports are available, but also at an additional cost.
The resort has a massive private beach to go along with multiple (and massive) pools and a water park. The grounds also feature lush greenery against the Turkish countryside.
Bodrum, Turkey | Starts at 70,000 points | Accessible via Milas Bodrum Airport (50 minutes)
Located on a small peninsula in the Aegean Sea, this property is perched on a hillside offering beautiful views. Not only does the resort have both indoor and outdoor pools, but it also has a private beach.
This Hilton all-inclusive hotel has seven restaurants and five bars, so there are also plenty of options for food and drink.
We received confirmation that this is an all-inclusive property but
At time of publication, Everyday Points and Miles was unable to find any record to determine if the Hilton Sharks Bay Resort (Egypt) or the Hilton Marsa Alam Nubian Resort (Egypt) are all-inclusive properties.
How to earn Hilton points
The easiest way to earn Hilton Honors points is to open one of their three personal credit cards: Hilton Honors Card, Hilton Ascend Card or the Hilton Aspire Card.
The Hilton Honors Card has no annual fee, but it also doesn’t come with any perks. It’s a great card to get for the sign-up bonus, but that’s about it. Right now, you can get 75,000 bonus points after spending just $1,000 in three months.
This Hilton Honors Ascend Card has a $95 annual fee, but is running a bonus of 125,000 points after spending $2,000 in three months. It doesn’t come with an annual free night certificate. You only get a free night by spending $15,000 on the card. However, it does come with Priority Pass lounge access.
To top off your account, you can earn miles through the Hilton Honors dining program.
Finally, the Hilton Honors Aspire Card, Hilton’s premium travel card, carries a $450 annual fee. It is awarding new cardholders 150,000 Hilton Honors points after spending $4,000 in three months. The card comes with Diamond elite status, which will give you upgrades and many other perks when staying at Hilton properties.
It comes with Priority Pass, a $250 credit at Hilton Resorts (which could be used to pay for children at all-inclusive resorts), a $250 airline incidentals credit, and a free annual weekend night certificate.
If you’re low on Hilton Honors points, you can also transfer points from the American Express Membership Rewards program. A single membership reward point will transfer into two Hilton points.
There are two other less useful options, as well. Points can be transferred from Hawaiian Air and Virginia Atlantic to Hilton at a 1:1.5 ratio. The kicker here is you must transfer in increments of 10,000 points.
There are definitely some solid Hilton all-inclusive hotels that are worth visiting. While point redemptions don’t come cheap, the rate includes food and drinks, including alcohol, so it’s more than your typical hotel.
While Hilton does charge resort fees on most award stays, they don’t charge resort fees on award stays at all-inclusive properties.
At the end of the day, using points at all-inclusives will not only save money, but also the stress of having to budget for food and drink while on vacation. Because Hilton award rates will vary, it’s always a good idea to check the cash rates for the days of your potential stay to make sure you’re getting a good value from using your Hilton Honors points.
