We have been on 3 trips in the last 18 months.
1 - Aventura Spa Palace
2 - Grand Cozumel
3 - Riu in Jamaica
While I wouldn't say the food was bad at any of these places, I did not ENJOY one meal. AND -- sometimes -- depending on where you were on the resort and what time of day it was -- I felt like it was a struggle to get a GOOD drink.
My first question is:
a) Does good food and all inclusive really co-exist?
When we stayed at the Grand Cozumel, we were only about 15 from where everyone goes shopping and one night, we went to some little restaurant that was 3 floors up and looked a look shabby -- but the food was GREAT -- the drinks were GREAT! We got lots of margarhita's and lobster and steak and the bill for 2 very happy and drunk customers was $50. We were shocked.
b) Wherever we go, I want to be able to leave the resort and do stuff and I want a place where there are not a ton of kids, but not everyone that is 40, 50, 60, etc... (no offense) -- but we are 28/29 and when I go to a place where all of the adults are my parents age -- I feel like a kid who's parents let them go out on their own
