The newer Riu Dunamar opened in December 2017 in Costa Mujeres, a beachfront area north of Cancun’s buzzing hotel zone. It’s flashier than other Riu resorts in the area, featuring 700 rooms (including two-bedroom suites ideal for families), five pools and the Splash Water World water park.
In addition to the main buffet restaurant, themed dining options include Asian and Italian cuisine, as well as a steakhouse. Snacks and cocktails are available around the resort, including at the pool’s swim-up bar.
Other resort amenities include a spa, 24-hour room service, and a kids’ club.
