This is my first review. I enjoy reading the reviews on here for other places I go, so thought I would give my contribution as well.
The RIU Penninsula is the first all inclusive resort I've ever stayed in, so take that into account as well. I've stayed in plenty of hotels, and been on a handful of cruises.
The resort - It was awesome. It was just under a year old and I thought it looked in perfect condition. The only reason I didn't give it a perfect score is because our rooms shower area did not have a door on it. I know there were supposed to be doors because I checked other videos of the rooms on youtube. Didn't complain about it though, since it wasn't a big deal. The grounds were perfect, always clean, and there were always staff around cleaning and making sure your stay was good.
The food - I couldn't ask for better or more selection, and it was all very good. The buffet was so good, we didn't even try the restaurants, which you do have to get a reservation for, but from my research, you have to do that in all resorts. The refrigerator was always stocked and nice!
The drinks - Never an issue at all. Some were stronger than others, but they were all very good. Hardly ever had to wait. The guys at the pool and beach came around often, and when I wanted one before they came back around, I just walked up to the bar and got one.
If you read reviews about the decor, it's just crazy that people wouldn't like it. It's new, it's modern, it's clean. Maybe they weren't trying to be like every other resort, and that's a good thing. Seriously, there is this thing called the internet, and you can look up any hotel and see photos or pictures to see if what the place looks like would be an issue.
