We have some very good news for you: We’re opening a new hotel in a new destination! Turquoise waters, white sands, Caribbean weather, colour… Have you guessed yet? Yes, our new destination is in Mexico, and you’re going to love it. It’s Costa Mujeres, where the Hotel Riu Dunamar will be waiting for you starting in December. Far from the bustle of the hotel zone of Cancún, located 30 miles away, this new RIU hotel has everything you need for an unforgettable stay.

Located in the continental part of Isla Mujeres, the Hotel Riu Dunamar will be a contemporary hotel where the fresh decoration and light colour palette will invite guests to relax and enjoy the marvellous Caribbean climate. The gastronomic offer will be one of its strong points, with gourmet, Asian and Italian options in its restaurants ‘Kulinarium’, ‘Bamboo’ and ‘Pompeya’; it will also have a steakhouse, ‘Las Brasas’, and the main buffet restaurant, ‘Isla Mujeres’, at which local cuisine, rich in meat and fish and with indigenous influences, will have its place alongside a wide variety of international dishes.

The five outdoor swimming pools are perfect for enjoying the Caribbean climate while you sip a cocktail prepared in ‘Tequila’, the pool bar. If you prefer, the beach were the Hotel Riu Dunamar is located is another excellent option, where you can lounge on its white sand while you look out at the turquoise waters of the Caribbean.

For those looking for more than just relaxation at the hotel, its location in Costa Mujeres and its proximity to Cancún opens up a wide range of entertainment possibilities. If you catch a ferry to Isla Mujeres, visit the Garrafón Natural Park and take a ride on the zip lines that pass over the sea to enjoy soaring over the blue waters of the Caribbean. On Isla Mujeres we also recommend that you go snorkelling; its lovely reefs and diverse marine flora and fauna are a feast for the eyes.

If you choose to stay on the peninsula, Cancún awaits you with open arms so that you can discover all the intricacies of the ancient Mayan civilisation: at the Mayan Museum of Cancún, you’ll find out about the history of one of the oldest civilisations in the world. You’ll also be able to enjoy shopping in the city, as Cancún has numerous boutiques, markets and shopping centres. You’ll find European imports, designer clothes, tequila and craft items, among other things.

History, leisure areas, heavenly beaches, plenty of entertainment, exquisite gastronomy and a brand new hotel all ready for you to spend a few unforgettable days. Made up your mind yet? Then don’t think about it any longer; come and be among the first to stay in one of the 700 rooms at the Hotel Riu Dunamar to enjoy its amenities starting on 2 December, its scheduled opening date. We’re waiting for you!

    We are booked to stay at Hotel Riu Dunamar 12/21/17 – 12/28/17 and we are wondering if you have a map/layout of the resort, noting the location of the pools, bars, restaurants, etc.
    Thank you!

    Nous avons réservé du 15 au 29 décembre 2017 au Riu Dunamar Playa Mujeres. Nous aimerions savoir si nous avons besoin de réservations pour les restaurants à la carte? Certains sites disent oui d’autres non.
    Merci.

  • Janet

    We are thinking of this resort for our children’s first trip to Mexico. Will all pools be open and Can you provide a better description of your water park? Do restaurants require reservations?

    • Riu Hotels

      Hi Janet!

      We eliminated the reservation system in the RIUs in the Caribbean to avoid collapsing with reservations and to prevent some customers from being able to enjoy them. As for the Water Park, please contact with the hotel for this kind of questions. And yes, from its reopening the hotel will offer all its services.

So we thinking of coming to the Dunamar hotel, our daughter will be 14 by the time we want to spend our holidays! Is she still considered as a child? Did I see it correctly that this goes up to 16? Are there any special activities for teenagers? Many thanks!!

    Hello. We are staying at riu caribe now today for a week. We are very disappointed with the rooms. The beds are like single beds. I asked two different people at front desk to move our family to different rooms. We have stayed at riu palace at playa deal Carmen, at puerto Vallarta and punt a Cana. Rooms are much nicer. I was told all rooms are the same here. Terrible. We are going to riu dunamar tomorrow to see their hotel. This is first time in cancun.
