Getting to an all inclusive in the Caribbean from Switzerland/France

Hi folks,

My mom will be celebrating her 60th birthday next year. My three siblings live in Ontario, Saskatchewan and BC so we decided it would be easiest if we celebrated at an all inclusive resort in Central America or the Caribbean. I've been tasked with finding a resort that is easily accessible for us and the others will follow suit (we live near Lausanne).

I've been searching around on the internet for a while and coming up with nothing -- we've only ever travelled independently in Europe so I don't know where to start. Has anyone been to the Caribbean from France or Switzerland? Is it even possible to find a company that will sell the plane tickets and accommodations as a package? My husband and I went to the Dominican once when we still lived in Canada, and the resort was full of Spanish and French people, so I feel like this should be possible.

It would of course be possible for us to book the hotel and plane separately but this would be more expensive and complicated.

Alternatively, one of my sisters suggested we meet at a resort in Portugal or Spain, but since 4/5 families are travelling from Canada I'm afraid this wouldn't make much financial sense. Has anyone has organised this sort of meet up in Europe?

Any and all advice on resorts, travel agents, or any other family-reunification tips (in Central America or Europe) would be most welcome, thanks!
