Like usual we really enjoyed our stay at Dunamar! It was awesome to see the staff, and thank them once again for their hospitality. Joshwar and Victoria took great care of us at breakfast and dinner. Gerardo, Bianca, and Edgar gave us great service at the swim up bar. Rubi and the team provided excellent customer service and relaxing massages seaside. We had fun as usual with the RIU Fun staff Bryan, Brisa, and Kevin and Karla kept us in great shape at RIU Fit! We look forward to seeing everyone again in November!

This place really made our trip the best one ever! We traveled with a group of 18 total, 5 were kids ages 7-15 The STAFF!! I can't say enough about the fantastic staff. Adi at the breakfast buffet is the sweetest. She really made sure we were taken care of. Always saving us a table and making sure we had everything we needed. She even gave us all presents to remember her by. My kids absolutely loved her! Gerardo and Rene at the Tequila Bar were the BEST! They always made sure the drinks were filled and always took care of our kids and their mudslides. They were so fun and we became friends by the end of our trip. We will miss you guys! Hector at the beach was always making sure we were taken care of! Carrying 20 drinks at a time for us. You are a rockstar Hector! We planned a excursion and it was the same time we were supposed to get our covid tests. Pamela at the front desk was so helpful and rescheduled 14 appointments for us so we could enjoy our day at Isla Majeures. We super appreciate your help Pamela! Wildo at the Lobby bar was awesome! We ate at all but one restaurant. The only one we weren't a fan of was the Italian. I would skip that one. We always found something at the buffet we liked. My kids are picky eaters and I've never seen them eat so much in Mexico. The rooms were super nice and updated. We were in the family connecting rooms and it was super nice having our own space from the kids and they thought they were pretty cool with their own room. We stayed in 2026 and 2027. It had a view of the waterslides and partial of the ocean. We loved the location. We had others staying on the other side that could hear the night entertainment each night. The beach is great, a little seaweed but they are always cleaning it up and it didn't bother us at all. The resort was the perfect size. Not too big, not too small. 3 pools, 2 with swim up bars, one without but had the best music. They also have a kiddie pool and larger waterslides. The kids absolutely loved the waterslides. It was a bummer the disco was closed due to covid. The only other complaint I have is they need way better music at the Tequila bar. It was a bit sleepy and I swear it had Christmas music one day. I've been to several all inclusive resorts and this one ranks top 3 for sure. I would definitely go back. Don't hesitate, book this resort.

I only take all-inclusive resort vacations, so far about 20, so I know a thing or two about them...that being said, my vacation to this resort was one of the best I've had...this resort is new, pristine, and comfortable...check in was seamless...the room was contemporary and modern with a beautiful bathroom...there are many American cable tv stations in the room...wi-fi was strong all over the resort, even at the beach...the food was good and plentiful with a buffet, Italian, Mexican, steakhouse, asian, gourmet restaurants, a barbeque poolside with hamburgers, hotdogs, chicken, a 24 hour sports bar with cold sandwiches you can microwave and cookies, cake, and drinks...plenty of bars with brands like Jim bean, beefeater, cuervo, Smirnoff, etc...the beach is spectacular with very little seaweed...be warned there are no palapas or umbrellas on the beach, shade is provided by palm trees or I'm sure you could take umbrellas from the pool area to beach..there are 4 pools with all levels of activity... there is plenty of shade at the pools...I did not visit the waterslide...there is on site shopping, but there is also a free shopping trip to playa del carmen or cancun...but sign up early because slots fill up fast. I did not visit the spa or gym...this resort is not in the hotel zone, it is actually across from Isla mujeres, but it enjoys the same beautiful turquoise water that cancun and Isla mujeres does. Don't hesitate to book...you will enjoy yourself!

There is nothing I could rate below excellent. Staff was outstanding, friendly, and caring. Resort is top notch. Food was great. rooms were comfy...we has the suite, family had the 2 bedroom family suites. It was away from the "strip" and for us (family of 16) it was exactly what we wanted. Although it's away from the hustle and bustle, we NEVER felt unsafe. young ones thoroughly enjoyed
