Square Deals - Our Best Vacation Values
Square Deals are our best value vacation packages and are exclusive to Apple Vacations. They feature the lowest prices you'll find for the promised hotel Apple rating. You choose the destination, departure date and hotel Apple rating. We'll inform you of your hotel just prior to departure. In return for your flexibility, you'll save hundreds!
Square Deals are All-Inclusive (unless otherwise indicated). All-Inclusive resorts include all meals, drinks, activities and entertainment, and in most instances, non-motorized watersports. "All-Inclusive" will be specified along with the hotel's numerical Apple rating (generally 4-6 Apple).
No matter when you plan to travel, Apple Vacations may have Square Deal Savings for you. If you're looking for exceptional value and can wait until departure to be informed of your hotel, a Square Deal may be the right choice.
Square Deal Apple Ratings:
6 Golden Apple - Exceptional Luxury
6 Apple - Luxury
5 Apple - Deluxe
4 Apple - First Class
3 Apple - Moderate
2 Apple - Budget
Golden Apple Square Deals
When you choose a Golden Apple Square Deal, you can be assured that you have made a great choice, because Golden Apple Hotels are Apple Vacationers' favorites, based on feedback from our Vacation Satisfaction Questionnaires.
Adults-Only Square Deals
If your entire party is 18+, an Adults-Only Square Deal may be ideal for you. Within this category, hotels can range from romantic honeymoon resorts to more active hotels offering all-day adult-oriented entertainment and topless sunbathing.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can I request a specific hotel?
A: No. Due to the nature of Square Deals, no special requests may be made including a preferred hotel, location or room type.
Q: When do I find out which hotel I will be staying at?
A: If traveling on one our Exclusive Vacation Flights, our Apple Vacations Airport Representative will advise you of your hotel when you arrive at the departure airport. Be sure to inform a family member or friend of where you will be staying prior to leaving the States.
If you are traveling on scheduled air or have booked a land-only vacation, you will be informed of your hotel one business day prior to departure. Remember to advise a family member or friend of where you will be staying prior to leaving the States.
Q: What if I don't like the hotel that has been selected for me?
A: If you are unhappy with the hotel that has been selected, your Apple Vacations Representative will work with you to offer an alternative choice. The cost to change hotel will be at your expense and will be payable to the Apple Representative in destination. Please remember that due to the special negotiated pricing of the Square Deal, the cost to change hotels in destination may be substantial.
Q: How do I know if a Square Deal is right for me?
A: If you answer "Yes" to the following questions, a Square Deal is a good choice for you:
- Are you looking for unbeatable value?
- Have you reviewed the numerical Apple Rating descriptions above, and are comfortable staying in any of the hotels Apple Vacations offers within the specified hotel rating?
- If you are considering an Adults Only Square Deal, are you comfortable with the possibility of being placed in a hotel that allows topless sunbathing and offers adult-oriented entertainment?
- Are you comfortable with waiting until close to departure to find out where you'll will be staying?
A: If you answer "Yes" to the following questions, a Square Deal is strongly discouraged:
- Book a traditional Apple Vacation where you know your hotel up-front at the time of booking.
- Do you want to stay at a particular resort or location in destination, or strongly prefer a particular type of hotel setting (e.g. quite and romantic vs. active and playful)?
- Do you have special needs or requests? For example, you should not book a Square Deal if you are disabled or require handicapped accessibility or room accommodations.
- Are you traveling with a group on multiple reservations? Square Deal hotels may change at any time. We cannot guarantee multiple bookings on any given arrival will be accommodated at the same hotel.
