Back from Riu Palace Peninsula and enoyed, Any Q's?

Ask away, we toured a few different room categories, looked at all menus, used the spa, Riu Caribe, busses from there and loved our stay. A few things we didn't love but one of my favorite stays of many in AI's. Will be happy to answer:)

The pool bar was spring break for 35 - 50 year olds, literally. I felt like I was in South Beach with everyone very drunk and making out like crazy. The fish was not good at Kulinarium for my hubby and in fact was totally awful. They had a small room service menu (even smaller than other Riu Palaces). But that's about it. I realize you can't control everyone at a resort and sometimes that happens and to be fair to the resort, the lifeguard was going to kick out some of them if they didn't stop practically having sex near people (and I'm not kidding at all). The fish was way undercooked and after asking about it was told it was supposed to be that way, but it was so runny I wouldn't have eaten it for fear of getting sick and he didn't.

We did have a wonderful time, but those are just some small things. I also don't love the overly modern feel of it, but we knew that going in and knew it was going to be ultra modern, so were expecting it.

I do have to say that it was by far the cleanest resort I have ever seen and if you like modern, it was super nice.

What is the hierarchy for the Riu properties in Cancun, from nicest to least nice?

Did you grab the bus to go anywhere (shopping, clubs)? Does the hotel offer to take you to any clubs at night? Did you make dinner reservations as soon as you got there? Thanks for the help :)

Are there a lot of kids there? Specifically, kids in strollers and kids all over the swimming pools?

Did you go to the beach bar, and if so - how was that?

What did you think of the RIU Caribe?
