by Mary Jo Manzanares on July 17, 2011

A few special travel deals have popped up that we think are worth a second look.

Bermuda:  Fairmont Southampton

The Fairmont Southampton is offering a Room with Breakfast and Dinner package, effectively creating an “an inclusive” option.  The package includes a room with a private balcony, daily breakfast, and dinner at one of the five restaurants on property.  This hotel package starts at $380/per person per night, a good value on this expensive island.

Dates:  Through December 31, 2011

Aruba:  Bucuti Beach Resort

Environmentally conscious couples may be interested in the Experience Aruba Green Vacation Package offered by the eco-friendly Bucuti Beach Resort.  The package includes a room with large balcony or terrace, full American breakfast daily, a guided hike in Arikok Natural Park with a native park ranger, an authentic Aruban 3-course dinner, and a tour of the local aloe factory.  Prices start at $2,164 per couple for an 8 day/7 night package (a little over $300/night).

Dates:  Through December 22, 2011

Long Island:  Glen Cove Mansion Hotel

If you’re looking for a value luxury destination that’s as suitable for families as it is for couples, the Glen Cove Mansion Hotel on Long Island (in photo above) has a Summer Splash Package that may be what you’re looking for.  The package includes a room for up to four people, full breakfast, a pay-per-view movie in your room, a couple of Happy Hour drink tickets, and a barbecue on the weekends.  Relax, enjoy the pool area, bike, hike, or opt for a spa treatment at this luxury getaway.  Package rates start at $239 per room, and when you consider than breakfast for four can easily run you up to $60, this is a value packed bargain.

Washington DC:  Starwood Hotels

We love it when we can find bargains in expensive cities, and here’s another one of those specials – 3 night packages in our nation’s capital at one of the Starwood Hotels.  Packages include 3 nights accommodation, roundtrip airport/hotel transfers, tax and service charges.  Hotel choices include:  The Fairfax at Embassy Row, The Mayflower, Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square, and the Fairmont Washington DC.  Combining one of these great package prices with the many free attractions in Washington DC can make this a very budget friendly vacation.  Package rates start at $360 per person, based on double occupancy.

Dates:  Vary based on hotel.
