Our family of 9 spent the Thanksgiving week at the Dunamar. We chose this resort for the water park and because it was new. The resort was clean and functional in an Ikea kind of way but disappointed due to the lack of room service. The lobby color scheme wasn't inviting and further worsen by not turning on the lights during the daytime. The sports bar lack any semblance of sports bar characters, fine dining options are in need of better interior decorations and food quality, and the evening entertainment lack production value, except Michael Jackson show. Also, avoid their infamous Foam Party at the pool for mediocre foam. Speaking of the pool, what's the rationale for the towel card? Who's going to steal the towel? The resort is in the middle of nowhere! I doubt any guest would risk paying for the excess weight of the luggage due to the towel. It's insane and inconvenient. Now, you may say that I'm being too critical, but having been to other resorts at similar price points 2-3 times/per year for past 10 years in Mexico/DR/PV, you can do far better all-inclusive experience. This resort definitely has potential and maybe time will tell.

Beautiful grounds.

Beautiful grounds, new facilities very clean and well maintain, considering that this resort was open just a year before. Resort staff is very helpful and fast to address your needs. Beach very clean and gorges a lot of shade from palm trees, plenty of beach lounges and tables, so is the pool areas very nice. Bar service is good, but only domestic liquor with no option for upgrades. Food, well … you will not go hungry but, could be much better for five star resort.

The rooms are clean and simple. It seems like there are tons of people cleaning everything in the 'off hours'. The restaurants are good and especially the buffet. The buffet has something for everyone and if you don't think that you can find something really good to eat here it may well be your problem. The staff is attentive an alert to everyone's needs. The servers at the bars are good and especially the pool bars. The pools are very clean. Here is the one very big problem with the facility. There is a long strip of restaurants and a buffet. There are NO public bathrooms until you get to the very end of the facility/building near the beach! There is not a bathroom in any or near any of the sit down 4 speciality/gourmet restaurants. There is NO bathroom near the main lobby or lobby bar. Conversely, the resort did reserve a rather large room that only houses a ATM Machine!! It conveniently IS near the restaurants and lobby. I suggested to Dunamar Customer Service to make that nearly empty room into a convenient restroom for the restaurant patrons. Place the ATM machine in a corner of a hallway or lobby rather than taking up valuable space! There is no bathroom near the main theater/bar. The next closest bathroom is near the back of the Sports bar which is a fair distance away. If you have any trouble walking, or any physical problem whatsoever, this is not the place to go. However, there are convenient restrooms by the pools.

We were looking for a cheap week away in Europe but found this. We have stayed in numerous Riu before & this is by far the best! Excellent weather, on the beach, spotless hotel, the staff cant do enough for you. There is a range of branded spirits to keep you happy & the food is the quality you would expect from the brand. We chose to eat early when using the buffet and had no issues with quality or temprature. The hotel is away from Cancun but close enough to visit (16km or very abouts) would we recommend/ return 100% yes we would.

Ok for the price

We went to Riu Dunamar in October for 1 week. 3 Families of 4 kids ranging from 6-12 year olds. The trip started off with a free room upgrade which was great!! The 2 bedroom room is worth every penny! The Good... Lots of space at pools, water park great for both kids and adults. Beach was great when we were there... the hurricane swept away all weeds! The entertainment staff and kids club staff were great! They did a lot of kids activities by the pool and you didn’t have to sign kids in and out. The not so good... Food was very disappointing! The a la carte far more disappointing than the buffet! You won’t starve but nothing to rave about. After 3 days it gets very repetitive! You can’t get a mixed drink in the restaurant only wine and beer! Only service in the evening was at the lobby bar. At the entertainment area you had to constantly line up at the bar for a drink- no servers walking around. This was our 7th trip to Mexico and the most disappointing. We got a good deal so I feel we got what we paid for but would not pay their non discount rate and probably won’t be returning.
