  on

With Spring break 2012 around the corner, the only thing on your mind is white sand beaches, crystal clear oceans, rum-filled pina coladas and that sweet smell that comes from your girlfriend's sun tan lotion. You're also probably thinking about how much all of that is going to cost. Well, we're here to tell you that with so many of the best all-inclusive resort destinations offering up great deals for Spring Break 2012 dates, it's going to be hard not book that dream vacation.

A stay at an all-inclusive resort gives guests the luxury of having everything they would want in a vacation rolled into one, Gordon Butch Stewart, Chairman of Sandals Resorts International, told the International Business Times. Once guests arrive, there's nothing to worry about except enjoying their vacation, rather than worrying over all the dollars and cents adding up along the way.

With the understanding that most people think of spring break as just a college student holiday, this list is not privy to that notion. We have included the best all-inclusive resorts for everybody from couples to groups, families, and adults.

While there are resorts that choose to set an age minimum and cater exclusively to adults looking to have a quieter, more intimate vacation, we have made it a point to include a little something for everybody. So stop day dreaming and check out the best all-inclusive spring break destinations for 2012:
