Solo Travelers Talk About 11 Things That Might Make You Want To Stay In Adults-Only Resorts

Traveling solo can be a daunting option, but it doesn’t have to be. Staying in an adults-only resort can be a great way to take a vacation and relax in a stress-free environment. Someone visiting the Dominican Republic just asked people online about going alone to a resort exclusively for adults. From the luxurious amenities to the peaceful solitude, the users’ responses show that adults-only resorts can be perfect for some well-deserved alone time.

1. You Can Be Anonymous

When it comes to vacationing alone, adults-only resorts like the Sun Palace in Cancun, Mexico could be your dream destination. For instance, imagine yourself at the age of 30, lounging and basking in the serene ambiance of such a retreat.

In such a place, according to a solo traveler, “No one cares that I’m solo.” Aside from giving you amazing views, these resorts offer an engaging setting where anonymity is a privilege and individual space is respected. And that equals to unrivaled freedom and sophisticated relaxation—enough to make anyone want to extend their stay.

2. No Screaming Children

Heaven. Someone painted a picture of heaven. No, screaming children sitting poolside or on beaches in lounges with great food and drink. One traveler explained as an adult, listening to little voices calling “Marco!” “Polo!” for an hour is a “definite vibe-killer.”

3. Never Felt Unsafe

A solo 41-year-old female traveler shared that she has traveled alone to Mexico, the Dominican Republic, and Jamaica and always stayed at adult-only resorts. She clarified there are always friendly people to chat with, you won’t be bored, and she never felt unsafe. “Just be aware of your surroundings like anyone normally should.”

4. Was Adopted by Family Groups

Another solo woman traveler confessed to staying exclusively in adult-only resorts and having the experience of being “adopted” by “mother-daughter duos” in family traveling groups. They clarified that there are typically many couples, but they never had difficulty socializing and making friends.

5. Treat the Staff Well

Suppose you treat the staff well because you’re alone. In that case, a lot of the time, they’ll go the extra mile to accommodate you or look out for you – quicker service at the bar, a sweeter table at the resto, or saving “your spot” poolside. Several others shared this experience.

6. Be Mindful of Couples

If you’re not in a suitable space emotionally with your romantic life, then watching couples hanging onto each other, cuddled up, and kissing may be uncomfortable. One explained it made her feel lonely because she was the only solo traveler at her adult-resort experience.

7. Mix of Groups and Ages

According to many solo travelers, adult resorts across various countries have a mixture of couples, singles, and friend groups (more women than men). Multiple people reiterated a feeling of safety at these resorts.

8. Plenty of Nice People

“I love it. Forty-eight years young and travel solo around the world.” One traveler shared they stayed in all-inclusive adult-only resorts in Cancun, the Dominican Republic, and Costa Rica. “Plenty of nice and cool people to chat with and activities all day into the evening.”

9. It’s Magical

“Let me tell you. It’s magical,” is how one solo traveler answered. They confessed to staying at several adult-only resorts and that each trip was relaxing and peaceful. However, one warning, they had swingers trying to invite them back to their rooms, but other than that, “10/10!”

10. Swingers

Speaking of swingers, another solo traveler shared that their friend had an odd experience at an adults-only resort in Jamaica. So they warned you to stay with “regular resort chains” and research other spots unless swinging is your thing? It was not for this solo traveler who now sticks to resort chains.
