Both the Riu Dunamar and Hotel Xcaret Mexico are open for business, just as promised. From what I have heard, there are the usual soft opening issues–getting some elevators to work at the Riu, some communication issues at Hotel Xcaret (limited English speaking from some staff), a la carte restaurant limitations with a less than full house, but these are not out of the ordinary issues given a brand new resort opening. A pleasant surprise is the water park opening at the Riu (I didn’t even know they had adult waterslides).
Those thinking of vacationing at these resorts, or those who have already booked should be aware that the first videos have been uploaded. Here are three samples–the Hotel Xcaret Mexico video is narrated in Spanish, but I just moved ahead in the video and viewed parts I wanted to see. I will be vacationing at both of these resorts at the end of Feb. 2018, so expect my blog reviews and videos then!
