A sprawling 700-room resort overlooking the Caribbean Sea with a water park and tons of buffets
If you’re looking for a low stress beach vacation, the all-inclusive program at Hotel Riu Dunamar is an affordable and fairly new (open in 2017) option for both families and couples. The resort’s 700 rooms are simple, but offer all that you could need, from free Wi-Fi to air conditioning and beverage dispensers. The property’s five swimming pools, some themed, include a designated children’s pool, a water park and an adults-only pool with a swim-up bar. For the kids, the RiuLand Kids’ Club is perfect for daytime entertainment, while the adults enjoy poolside cocktails, entertainment programs or a treatment at the Renova Spa. Come dinner time, check out the numerous buffets and steakhouse.
Psst! Guest tip: Get a massage on the beach in a small hut for just 35 USD.
Located 30 miles outside of Cancún’s bustling Hotel Zone, Hotel Riu Dunamar is far away from the city’s tourist center. Instead, you’ll find serene shorelines and stunning untouched beaches at Costa Mujeres. For day trip excursions, head to the inland Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza or take a shuttle to the Hotel Zone for a day of shopping, restaurants and exploring, knowing you’ll return to your laid back home away from home. Nature lovers, board a ferry to Isla Mujeres, where you can zip line over the Caribbean Sea and snorkel the vibrant reefs, or explore Garrafon Natural Park.
