Beautiful property, nice rooms and staff was friendly. Service at the bars was quick. The food situation on the other hand was ridiculous. I feel the hotel was overbooked considering what they could handle. Wait time for the restaurants was at least an hour if you went any time after 6:30. Food quality was cheap. You get what you pay for with all inclusive. We stayed during spring break and the hotel is trying to cater to too many different types of crowds (families and college kids). Overall good experience, but we probably wont be back.

This property was incredible for our family of 6. Kids 12 to 3. Beach: beautiful aquamarine Caribbean sea with rows of palm trees. There wss enough sun and shade. Spacious and always enough chairs, which were clean and undamaged. The beach waiters were always asking if we needed anything. Lots of watersports available, no charge for non motorized. The pools: clean, perfect temperature. which is important because there's no jacuzzis. Always enough spaces, cute breezy umbrellas. Waterpark: amazing. Both toddlers and teen had their own slides, which were really fun imo. Lifeguards on duty. Childrens center: really clean and had great crafts. Our favorite were the clay animals and bracelets. Calu the tortuga and his animal friends star in riu land Food: alot of variety and no reservations needed, which gives freedom, but keep in mind waiting if the restaurants are full. I enjoyed each place we visited. There is something you will like in buffets and restaurants. Staff: so courteous and smiling. Was always hardworking and trying to serve, with or without tips. Suggestions: More chance to meet calu the tortuga and take photo with him. Adding lotion and conditioner in rooms. Night entertainment: we are an old fashioned family so the shows were a little to revealing and sizzling for us. There was a lot of variety in planning nightly schedules. It was nice that they did a special kids show, and calu the turtle showed up, before main show. We loved our trip! Thank you Riu!

It was very clean and staff was great! Night life wasn’t good. They didn’t have masks to offer or buy but required them. So that was inconvenient and a hassle.

Stayed At RIU Dunmar On 10/5 , When We Arrived There The Hotel Looked Nice . Check In Went Well. The Problems Started Once We Got To Our room , There Was Trash Outside Our Door , Our Room Wasnt That Clean &’ Our “Open Bar” Mini Fridge Was Not Stocked. As We Changed Our Clothes To Head To The Pool . We Went To The Towel Booth With Our Towel Cards &’ Was Told There Was No More Towels. ( Idk If It Was Cause We Were People Of Color ) But Others That Were Not Our Race Was Still Receiving Towels . We Brushed It Off &’ Still Attempted To Go To The SwimUp Bar , When We Got Over There At 5:30 We Was Told They We’re Done Serving Drinks ( The Bar Closes At 6PM) , But They Gave Another Couple A Line Of Rainbow Shots. Frustrated , We Left &’ Attempted To Go Received Food. As Our Stay Was All Inclusive Let’s Attempt To Get Food. When We Went To The Restaurants We Were Told We Had To Dress Formal In Order To Eat. (ITS 90 DEGREES IN CANCUN ALL WE HAD WAS SHORTS AND TEES) . People Were Walking In The Restaurants With Bathing Suits On. The Next Day Was My Cousins Birthday &’ We Tried To See If We Could Dress Up For One Of Their Fancy Restaurants. We Headed To The Lobby &’ To The Restaurant. We Were Told To Go To The Front Desk For Reservations But We We’re Leaving For Excursions So We Just Called Over The Phone (12pM Their Time). We Were Told No Reservations The Fancy Restaurants Closed At 9:30 . We Got Down There Only To Be Told We Could Not Be Accommodated. If You’re Blck Stay In Hotel Zone!

Disappointing if you have stayed at other resorts along the coast in Mexico. The decor is generic to say the least. I did not feel like I was at a 4 star hotel in Cancun, they could have at least tried to use bright colors to make it feel less like you're at some club in the US. All Inclusive is a complete lie. They charge for the spa, the gym and some of the activities available. This was a first considering that even in the cheapest of hotels the gym is always free. Some of the servers were super kind, we always over tipped them and tried to sit at the tables they served throughout the week. Except one lady that rolled her eyes at me when I asked for a cup of water. I speak Spanish & I know how to use "usted" "gracias" and "por favor", so this was so uncalled for. Oh yeah, and the cherry on top of all the disappointment, my parents woke up at 5a the second night because of the itching. There was bed bugs. Yup, bed bugs. The manager upgraded them to a suite & still even the suite was okay. Again, it's disappointing because for the price we paid we know there are better hotels out there. Now, I understand that it's in September probably the slow season, after a pandemic, & they are probably understaffed, so we were very patient because we know the staff is not at fault. However, Riu needs to make some major changes to this Hotel in order to make it more appealing. We will not be going back.

Dear Marilyn, We appreciate you taking the time to evaluate your recent stay at Hotel Riu Dunamar. Please accept our apologies that we did not live up to the standards you have come to expect from us and for the unsatisfactory service you received from our front desk associates. As we are committed to providing exceptional service, what you have described is unacceptable and not what we pride ourselves on providing. We can assure you this experience was below our typical standards. We are grateful to you for bringing these concerns to our attention which we take very seriously. Your feedback will be shared with the management team to use as an opportunity to improve upon our guest experiences. To end, we are surprised to read your comment regarding your idea of what the All-Inclusive concept stands for. Please know, an All-Inclusive vacation means that your stay, unlimited food, drinks, activities and entertainment are all included in the resort's booking price. All charges for extra services are correctly displayed wherever you can book our hotel. However, while as advertised the Renova Spa is offered with an extra charge, the gym is free. We are sorry if you missed this information when booking our hotel. It is our hope you will consider a future visit in order to experience the level of hospitality we are typically known for providing to our beloved guests. Respectfully, Hotel Riu Dunamar Online Reputation Manager

We had great time here. Based on some reviews we were concerned about the quality of food but the food is really, really good so don’t understand what else somebody would want….I can not say the same about deserts, they were not that great. Good drinks, they have lots of brand name whiskey, liquor again I do not understand the bad reviews about that. The complains are: no umbrellas on the beach!!!!!! This is awful since the palm trees can not give somebody all day shade, so, everyone on the beach had to move the launch chairs every hour or so in different spots to have some shade… of course we did burn, this is horrible and a deal breaker for us since we only stay to the beach. The water in the pools we tried once is literally boiling, very unpleasant. Other than that everything was really nice. We had great time here and would consider coming back in the future.
