    INCREDIBLE STAFF and a wonderful experience

    stayed at the riu dunamar with my bestfriend from may 1-may 8 and I wanted to give a BIG shoutout to the workers at this resort. from the moment we got there everyone was so attentive and we were treated super well. Fantastic service at the Mezcal bar by Willy and Angel!! 🫶🏽🫶🏽 They definitely know how to get the party started and they keep the vibes high! If you’re staying at the Dunamar, do yourself a favour and go see these two gems. Gracias por hacer que nuestro primer viaje a méxico sea memorable. Los amo muchoooo mis amores ❤️ No puedo esperar a volver ❤️ Thank you to Sheila who works on the beach. Super efficient and always with a smile, checking up to see if we needed anything. Thanks a bunch for the endless frozen mango margaritas 🥭 Arturo at the front desk was an angel to kindly upgrade our room at check in to an amazing oceanview room on the 4th floor where we enjoyed the sunrises on the oceanside and the sunsets with the lagoon view (he was right, it made for amazing vacation pics 🫶🏽). Luis at the jardin lobby bar makes amazing drinks so be sure to go see him at cocktail hour. We made it a routine to get a couple drinks there when the pool bar would close before going up to our room to get ready for the night. Hats off to Angel, Alex, Emmanuel and Marco from the entertainment team. The true rockstars of this resort. Thank you for keeping everyone entertained and encouraging us to participate in the various activities. Make sure to go see Ady at the buffet. We made sure to go see her for breakfast every morning and lunch when we were at the resort. She is such a kind soul and always had a smile on our face and by the 3rd day she knew exactly what we liked to have with our breakfast ❤️ Truly an angel thank you a million times for everything ❤️❤️ I know this is a family resort but I honestly give them 20/10 for late night entertainment. Pacha was really bumping and a huuuuge thanks to the bartenders and Dj at the club that would hype all of us up and even participate with us. Y’all are amazing and made this an awesome vacation for all of us. Also a big shoutout to Ismael and Charli at the 24/7 hours sports bar who didn’t mind when our new vacation friends and us would move the party to the sports bar when Pacha closed at 2. Mucho love to all of you guys 🫶🏽🫶🏽🫶🏽 Also a huge shout out to the cleaning staff and the people in charge of the mini bar. They were super attentive and we would always request things through the RIU app and whenever we’d come back to our room after lunchtime everything we’d requested would already be here. So sorry I forgot her name but thank you thank you to all of you!!!! Thank you to the amazing staff for making this a vacation to remember. Your kindness and dedication was very appreciated and it was a memorable time because of all of you!!! We can’t wait to be back
