date_range 5 December, 2017 label , , , , question_answer 68 Comments

At RIU we never stop giving you reasons to smile: the new Riu Dunamar has just opened its doors! On Friday, 2 December, this new hotel in Costa Mujeres, a new RIU destination, opened the doors to its modern facilities, located 30 km from the hotel zone in Cancún. With RIU’s exclusive 24-hour All-Inclusive service, the Riu Dunamar is designed to ensure you an unforgettable stay and to make you want to come back to Costa Mujeres, our new destination, again and again.

Located in the continental part of Isla Mujeres, the Riu Dunamar is a contemporary hotel where the fresh decoration and light colour palette invites you to relax and enjoy the marvellous Caribbean atmosphere. The gastronomic offer is one of its strong points, with gourmet, Asian and Italian options in its restaurants ‘Kulinarium’, ‘Bamboo’ and ‘Pompeya’; you’ll also find a steakhouse, ‘Las Brasas’, and the main buffet restaurant, ‘Isla Mujeres’, where local cuisine, rich in meat and fish and with indigenous influences, has its place alongside a wide variety of international dishes.

The more than 700 rooms of the Hotel Riu Dunamar are perfectly appointed with all the best amenities, like air conditioning, minibars and beverage dispensers. And, the five outdoor swimming pools are perfect for enjoying the Caribbean climate while you sip a cocktail prepared at ‘Tequila’, the pool bar. If you prefer, the beach were the Riu Dunamar is located is another excellent option, where you can lounge on its white sand while you gaze out at the turquoise waters of the Caribbean.

One of the hotel’s great attractions is unquestionably Splash Water World, the water park on the premises. The younger (and the not-so-young!) members of the family will enjoy whooshing down its various slides under the radiant Mexican sun.

At the Hotel Riu Dunamar you won’t have time to get bored. You can enjoy the best daytime and nighttime entertainment programmes, live shows and music, the RiuLand Kids’ Club for the youngest members of the family, and the RiuFit programme, which is perfect for our more athletic guests. And if what you want is relaxation during your holiday, we suggest the sauna and jacuzzi at the Renova Spa, where you also have the option of scheduling hairdressing, beauty and massage services to go back to your room feeling brand new.

We’re launching a destination with a brand new hotel that is ready to offer you its best and newest amenities in modern facilities designed down to the last detail for you to enjoy a unique stay. Don’t hesitate any longer, come to Costa Mujeres and let yourself be seduced by the new Hotel Riu Dunamar.

    We have booked two weeks in Jan/Feb 2018. After years of travel from Canada to Central and South America, we are extremely excited to be experiencing this property and especially the location. There have been travel highs and lows through the years, but we are certain the Dunamar will surpass any expectations we might have. Riu here we come.

  • Darlene Lynn

    We are booked for 2 weeks arriving Feb 5th. I have been trying to get an email for the resort but no luck. I have a few questions please reply.thank you

  • Derek Grimaldi

    Good Morning,

    I am visiting the Riu Dunamar tomorrow and would like to email the hotel with a request – can you provide me with an email address please?

  • Anik

    We are a party of 7 people who will be travelling to the Riu Dunamar in March. Unfortunately, we have become very concerned with the negative reviews we have been reading on Tripadvisor. It would help to know that the Riu Corporation is taking these comments seriously and trying to fix the problems (elevators not working, which is scary for guests with mobility issues and the quality of the food and drinks). Any reassurance would help. Thank you.

    • Riu Hotels

      Hi Anik!

      Thank you very much for your comment. Please be assured that we will share your concerns with the corresponding department. We look forward to your visit in March and hope you will enjoy your stay with us 🙂

    My goal is to stay at every RIU resort before I expire. I have just returned from RIU Ocho Rios with my wife and two visitors I invited and paid for, and will be making reservations to stay at RIU Mobay next. That will complete my stays in Jamaica.

    As a result of my fabulous experiences at RIU resorts, I’ve launched my own travel agency to invite others to visit RIU resorts also.

    • Riu Hotels

      Hi Brian!

    Hi
    We have previously enjoyed the Palace Peninsula and I was fond of the ramp into one of the pools that let me access the water in my wheelchair
    Does this hotel have a ramp into the pool? How many pools are on the property?
    We have also stayed at Caribe, Vallarta and Jalisco
    Love Chef Roque (Koko) – He is the best. Much luck . with the new hotel

    Thanks
    Wes

    We are really looking forward to our two week stay at this new hotel. Having previously stayed at The Tequila, we caught the RIU bug and have visited The Palace’s in Playa Car and Puerto Vallarta a couple of times along with a long weekend in the Plaza Berlin and a two week break in Turkey.
    So will be interested in how this compares.

    Just returned from our stay at the RIU Resort. It was the most beautiful experience ever. We vacationed there for a wedding and it was everything and more than I expected. The hotel was impeccable and beautiful. What you see in the pictures is what you will see when you get there. The room are gorgeous, spacious and very clean. Not one complaint from me and I am very meticulous about cleanliness. The customer service was A1 everywhere. The food was great and the drinks were always plentiful. The wait staff was better than you could ever imagine. They were courteous, attentive and always available. Although tips and gratuities are included, they deserve an extra tip. So please set aside money for the service you receive. I would refer this hotel to all of my friends. I can’t wait to come back. Thanks for a beautiful experience…..LOVE IT !!

    Where to Shop.. Hello My sister and I will be arriving at your Resort on the 10th of October. She is so excited it will be her first Trip out of the Country and I am happy to do this for her. We cant wait. I have read so many amazing things about this Beautiful Resort so much so that I forwent several others to visit YOU. My question is 1 of 2 where can I take her to do some shopping? I heard that there is a Market called #21 is this correct? Also would it be too much to ask if a Banner of some sort of Welcome be placed in the room more for her then Me. ( our last name is Douglas ) As mentioned we will be arriving October 10th/2018. Cheers. C U soon.. 🙂
