The best value I ever received was a WONDERFUL all-inclusive vacation at the Marriott CasaMagna in Puerto Vallarta. For some reason, Marriott has done away with all-inclusive vacations, a very disappointing decision. Our trip included round-trip flights San Francisco - Puerto Vallarta, a beautiful ocean-view room for a week, ALL food and drinks (3 meals a day, bar, etc.) It was a dream vacation.
Marriott -- If you are reading this, PLEASE reinstate all-inclusive vacation packages. They are the BEST. And if I am mistaken and you DO have all-inclusive packages for Marriott Rewards points now, let us know.
My family spent an entire week at the Ihilani Resort in Oahu on points. With teenage kids, we reserved two rooms for the week. Both were upgraded automatically without asking to neighboring upper floor suites facing the ocean. Our suite was larger than our first apartment in San Diego by far. The kids's was bigger than my wife's quad dorm room her (2nd) senior year. Well done, Ihilani. Very well done indeed!
