New All-inclusive Getaways Give You a Break

Despite sun-warmed strands and gently lapping surf, paying $10 for a rum punch can challenge even your best R&R efforts. While the Caribbean isn’t the cheapest idyll on earth, the new Starfish all-inclusive resorts aim to ease the blow. Launched by SuperClubs in Jamaica, Starfish includes accommodations, meals, liquor, nightly entertainment, and beach activities from $1,253 per couple per week, $25 nightly for kids under 14. Take the clan to Starfish Trelawny, opening this month, or Starfish Ocho Rios, slated for a spring launch. And don’t feel deprived. You can still scuba dive, water-ski, get a massage, or participate in a circus workshop at Starfish; the options just cost a little extra. (800) 467-8737, www.starfishresorts.com
