Yes, you can pay more, or pay less for an all inclusive property, but the RIU Dunamar hits right in the middle and is a great value. Room: The room was excellent and perfect housekeeping. Only shortcoming was the bath hairdryer. Bring you own hairdryer or ear protection, loudest hairdryer you have ever heard. Food: The hotel does not pretend to be "gourmet" but the selection and variety was huge. You could always find something you liked. Only negative was the pool grill at lunch. No vent or fan over the grill. Smoke everywhere over the guests and the poor cooks had to work in the smoke for hours. Also the ribeye I ordered at the steak place was really bad (could not eat), but my wife's chicken was good. Service: Wow, especially at the beach for drinks. Fantastic service. The bars also had excellent service. A nice touch was having a menu board for drinks, thus allowing you to read and try something new you had not tried before. Service in the restaurants was also very good but a bit rushed. Beach: yes the pools were good, but the beach was our highlight. Lots of lounge chairs and palm trees, along with great drink service. This is where we stayed most of the day. But there are also lots of nice pools and if you have kids the water park they would love. Other notes: The transfers the hotel provided for free went perfect. The covid test the hotel provided free was also. This adds great value to the RIU Dunamar. The grounds and hotel itself were nice and well maintained. As others have mentioned, the hotel is away from the "action", which means an uncrowded beach. Would love to go back.

Reading all the negative reviews before going made me very nervous. Thank goodness we had a great time. We were there the first week of September. I’m back for 2 days and want to go back. Food was decent. No one got poisoned, so I’m happy. Super clean hotel, which is extremely important for me. The beach was great and the the seaweed didn’t bother us. I wanted still and clear water. That’s not going to happen. There are waves but they were a pleasure. If you swish your arms the seaweed moves away and it’s fine. You don’t have to get up at 6 am and get chairs on the beach or the pool. There are always chairs available and a lot of shade. The water park was so much fun. Never any long lines. 0-2 people in front that’s how fast it goes. Over all the vacation was wonderful.

From not enough food, not one single trash can onsite resulting in glasses everywhere to no more beach towels at 15:00, this was the worst hotel I have ever been. Checked-in at 15:45 but was told my room wasn’t ready because check-in is at 16:00 (we are looking at a 15 minutes difference here!), it should have been a sign. Room not done 3 times and when it was done, it was half-done: noTOILET PAPER, towels, never once washed the glasses nor the sinks, etc. Not enought food in the buffet, à la carte restaurant set up outside with the humidity and mosquitos, returned food because it was cold. The main reason why I chose Riu was because of the food… SO WRONG! When we arrived at the beach in the morning, all kinds of dirty glasses everywhere, chairs not cleaned, nobody to help, garbage, etc. I’ve been in more than 50 all inclusive hotels and this is the first time I ever witnessed this: someone pooped in the pool! Not the hotel’s fault but how gross?
