Above and beyond my expectations!

First of all, this is not my first time vacationing through cheap Caribbean in an all-inclusive resort. But this one is probably one of the best I’ve ever been to. The rooms are all new, and modern. Every nook and cranny of the resort is cleaned daily. Everything is well-maintained from the beach, to the pools, to restaurants, to the bathrooms. Whoever runs this resort runs a tight ship. Everything here runs like clockwork. Our rooms were cleaned daily. We felt like royalty. I was especially impressed with the food. There’s a huge variety of choices for each meal in the buffet. The restaurants do not require reservations, we never had to wait, there was a variety of delicious food available through the a la carte restaurants every day. The food presentation is stunning. The staff is super friendly and helpful. I can’t say enough about the water parks!!. They’re very clean, well-maintained, and bigger than I expected! My kids absolutely loooved them! Everything about this vacation was perfect! Couldn’t be better! The ocean water was sooo pleasantly warm! What a treat. Definitely want to come back here!

Definitely worth it!

We recently returned from a trip to Riu Dunamar. We were celebrating my wife's 40th birthday with friends. I will do my best to sum up our wonderful trip. Transportation was a breeze-plan for a 45-55 minutes to get from airport to the resort. Location of this resort is amazing- It is located in Costa Mujeres. The best part was there was no seaweed. The beaches were great (and we traveled in May). Food was good-We thought the food was good. Servers did a nice job of keeping your drinks ful. Beaches-Like I mentioned, the beaches were great. The island of Isla Mujerus blocks most of the seaweed and keeps the beaches pristine. Pools-this is a family friendly resort, but there are 5 pools and every pool has a different vibe. Overall we had a great time. The grounds are immaculate and clean. We will definitely be booking this resort in the future.

Mixed Feelings to the fullest

First off, I must say that the resort itself as well as the staff were nothing short of amazing. The entertainment was top notch and the greens were very well kept. As other reviews state, there is always someone outside working. The vibe of the resort was very nice to say the least and obviously very modern and relaxed. Now to the bad... My wife and I went to a RIU Palace Los Americas in cancun and was super impressed as we are usually very partial to Sandals. We was expecting the same food quality and room quality as the Palace and boy was we wrong. The food was extremely average to say the least and was nothing like Riu palace stated above. Unfortunately I would have to say that out of 5 all inclusive resorts we’ve ever been too, this spot had the worst food for dinner, lunch and breakfast. Next, the beds had to be some of the worst we’ve ever slept in including hotels... There wasn’t a day that went by that we didn’t wake up with out lower backs and necks killing us. Overall, the experience was awesome because we got to share it with our three girls and the resort staff was so very nice. Would we ever go back here again? This would be a definite no to the fullest.

Amazing Service, Incredible Staff, Went Above 100%

My boyfriend and I went for his birthday so it was already a great trip. However, the Am Star service and Rui Dunamar went above and beyond!!! Our check in took 5 minutes, we were upgraded in celebration for his birthday (which they did not have to do but it was amazing) and our room was decorated in celebration, with a complementary bottle of Tequila (besides what was in the room dispenser). The entire resort was spotless, our bed and towels were perfect and I can’t think the staff enough when our door messed up and they had someone there in 10 minutes to repair it, leaving us the maintenance number just Incase. The drinks were perfect and nothing was watered down. BEST PART no surprise fees!! The not so great part, the kids were all over every single pool. It would be great if the resort had one area that was more adult friendly and it was enforced. Also the food(after hour) options, were limited. Nachos, hotdogs and salads made up the food accessible if you couldn’t make the restaurant hours. We plan on going back to Cancun and would happily stay there again, just have more snacks in our room.
