10. Holiday Inn Resort Montego Bay All-Inclusive
Jamaica your friends your jealous when you tell them about this all-inclusive Montego Bay resort. It’s everything you imagine when you hear the words “tropical paradise.” White sand beaches, lush tropical gardens, an on-site spa… you can even order drinks with those little red umbrellas in them. And your photos are going to get so many likes on Instagram.
Plus, there’s that all-inclusive part…
You’ve got 5 on-site restaurants to choose from, standard rooms and suites, salons, ocean-view pools, a friendly staff & a casino to enjoy. And it’s on Montego Bay—which has sunsets brighter than you’ve ever dreamed.

9. Holiday Inn Club Vacations at Orange Lake Resort – Orlando
This is as close as you can get to Disney World without staying in the park. So it’s no wonder members march to this home of happiness. But even if it were in another town, this Orlando resort would still be worth the points—because it’s practically an amusement park itself.
You can stay in spacious hotel suites, a condo-style studio, or a villa with up to 3 rooms and 2,475 square feet—complete with a kitchen & washer/dryer. How convenient is that for packing? And the property is a vacationer’s paradise. Golf, lazy river tubing, tons of food, and good ol’ family fun everywhere you turn.
Now, we probably don’t need to tell you about Orlando, but if for some reason do you want to leave the property, there’s (space) mountains of fun to be had. And not just for kids.

7. Holiday Inn Resort Panama City Beach
When Panama City comes up in conversation, one immediately conjures up an image of tropical drinks, sugar-sand beaches and, yes, probably a Spring Break memory or two.
This quintessential Florida beach town is among the most popular in the U.S.—and for good reason. Reliable weather, gulf-coast vista views and a bevy of seafood restaurants make visits to the Florida Panhandle an annual tradition for many Americans.
So it’s no surprise that Holiday Inn Resort Panama City Beach checks in at #8 on our list. The resort features a lagoon-style pool (with a cascading waterfall), hot tubs and the new SeaGlass Bar & Grill. This resort also caters to kids, with a water playground and free daily outdoor activities.
