Do they check everyone’s ID at all inclusive resorts?

A large group of friends are thinking about going to an all inclusive resort for our friends bachelor party. We’re just wondering if they’ll check everyone’s ID to make sure we’re all over 18. We’re all in our mid twenties except for the bachelors little sister who will be 17 at the time. His mom will also be there. We just wanted to see if she’d be able to get away with drinking while we’re there as long as we pay the adult price for her. It’s fine with her family but would we be able to do it or will they ask for everyone’s id to make sure everyone is of age?

    Every all-inclusive resort I've been to checks IDs and issues wristbands that must be worn for the duration of your stay to identify you as a resort guest.  The color of the wristband determines whether you can drink.  So she very likely will not be able to drink on that trip, unless her parents provide her with drinks in her room or some other private setting.  She won't be served by the staff.

    Any business that wants to keep its license will check IDs (and hopefully call child protective services if some family is letting a 17 year-old girl get drunk at a bachelor party). Surely you guys can find some actual women and not all count on getting a child wasted.

    Yes, they will check all IDs.

    They'll ask for ID, and probably give everyone wristbands to confirm their age. So no; she won't be able to drink.

    In what country is this all inclusive? It makes a difference. Yes, they check IDs at resorts- there are often different colored wristbands. The question you should be asking is if it's legal for her parent to provide her with alcohol. It is in some places and not in others. Frankly, the idea of working to get a 17 year old girl drunk is pretty repellent to me, but whatever. We need to know where this all inclusive is.They have to obey country and local laws.
