AI FOOD Poll

YOU ARE VOTING FOR RESORTS YOU CONSIDER TO HAVE BAD/Below Average FOOD


i am going to try to make a list of AI's so people can rank food. It seems to be a common question/concern.

yes the food is an opinion. but this thread is for those opinions......
i may not necessarily believe someone about an AI having good food, but if the general consensus is that the food is bad, low quality, or maybe no variation; then i would plan around that

i think your opinion should not necessarily be comparing to other AI's (although still considered) but more to any food from other standard restaurants as well even where you reside.
I wouldnt say this is good food for Mexico, or good food for an AI.
i either think it overall good or bad.



feel free to discuss exactly what you didnt like..........

and also what are your favorite AI restaurants

Another thread.
You'll make a decision one of these days!
Secrets The Vine - best food of all the AIs I've visited.

I was gonna vote for the Barceló Palace...as it's the best AI I've stayed at on this coast, and the food was great.....and then I see it's not even on this poll.



No other AIs - other than the Aventura Mexicana (we did semi AI there) and the Privilege Aluxes on Isla Mujeres....both were 'good' in the food category, not great.

well i though i would be able to add to the poll if something other than listed came about

but this poll is for bad food

YES THE VOTE IS FOR BAD OR BELOW AVERAGE FOOD.

good is always a debate.....but if here is an overall consensus of bad....then we know what to avoid

There are quite a few missing from that list.
Most everyone we have visited.
Perhaps, instead of a poll, just ask which resorts had crappy food.
Although crappy food is just as subjective as good food.

And the Royal Playa Del Carmen and Gran Porto are two completely different resorts.

No. You don't.
They are owned by different companies.

I don't see on those sites where it says amenities can be shared - except for paid water sports.

As for good, the Royal Playa Del Carmen had pretty good food in the restaurants. Buffet food is buffet food. It can only go from good enough to bad. Buffet food is never excellent. At least at the Royal PDC you are a quick walk to most restaurants on 5th.
