Beach - Barcello hands down. The beach in front of the RIU's are in the process of trying to be rebuilt and have large sandbags everywhere.

Food - I would say RIU's. I was not impressed with the food at the Barcello. Mind you, that was 7 years ago, and I had just quit smoking :)

Activities. Daily activities I would give to the RIU. Nightly shows would go to the Barcello.

Pools - Barcello
