Best 5* adults only all inclusive near bars, shops, etc

We are especially looking for an adults only hotel near dining, clubs and shopping but with a nice beach, infinity pool, good food, top shelf, good service and club upgrade. We have been to Riu Las Americas and it was great but not adults only. Excellence was great but too far from anything. So on to the next adventure! Does anyone know of a good place in the general vicinity of the Riu? We are going in December. Thank you for any insight!

I'm staying at Secrets The Vine in February in an oceanfront honeymoon suite.

I have never stayed there before but I have been reading the reviews on TA and am active on their facebook page and am starting to see a trend I don't like. They are pushing their "Preferred" club upgrade and some posters mentioned feeling like a second class citizen. I'm still allowed to give an opinion I think, but I'll have first hand knowledge in February.

Oh, absolutely!!! I was just wondering if you'd stayed there already.

If you read the question as I have, it asks for an 5 star AI "near" bars and shopping. To me, that means within walking distance of those ammenities, so in my opinion, barry & marry are correct. Only answer is LeBlanc...
