Dunes Hotel and Beach Resort

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by cgpm666 on February 6, 2006

The resort was very well kept. For the price, the activities, food, accommodations, location, and attention were exceptional. We paid $240 per night for four adults, all-inclusive, in June, which considering that it included everything, was a very good price. The reception was very good, the place is beachfront (with a private beach), and very few people, if any, are in that area. There are two adult pools as well as a kid's section. There is a game room, gym, spa, bar/lounge, disco, night activities, karaoke, shows, and bingo, all on-site.

The pool area is very nice, and they have good activities and food at the pool. There is a great restaurant with a buffet as well as menu options on the beach, and they also have another two restaurants in the complex.

I was never bored; there was always something good to do. People were very helpful and created a very nice and safe environment. They have some nice animals purposely placed to run around the complex to make it look nice. Whenever we wanted to do something different, we just took an on-site taxi and did other activities---scuba, gambling at the casino, and mangrove boating--all very reasonable in price.

Don't use your high-maintenance timeshare to exchange here, as you probably get a better deal by paying for this trip. If you go, exchange with RCI or II. You would still pay (not mandatory, but recommended) $30 per person for the all-inclusive, so paying the $60 per person is a better deal. This is Gold Crown resort, and it is very well worth it.
