Went in February 2015, been to Playa del Ingles many times, but not to the Dunamar. Hard to find a fault, possibly the food, although plentiful and superb, was geared toward the German guests. The only real point against was the bedroom carpet, worn out and should have been replaced long ago! Staff friendly and helpful at all times. Good... More

My wife and I used this hotel late February/early March 2015. Our room was located on the tenth floor in the annex. This sounds worse than it was as the room was fine with a good bathroom and lots of storage in the main bedroom for a weeks visit by two. As is the custom in Spain there were no... More

We had booked based on the reviews on here and were disappointed. First the positives: The location is good; for going to the beach, to walk to... More

The night time entertainment in the lounge was free and excellent with shows such as Abba and Queen, Absolutely Funky,Beijing Acrobats, Lord of the Dance and Circus plus live music every night. We would... More

We have been to this lovely hotel quite often, and we have always enjoied it very much. It was still a pleasure this January, but lack of security made us feel uncomfortable this time. We had rooms at ground floor level, facing the pool, and with private patio and direct axcess to the pool, it should have been enjoyable again.... More

Picked the IFA DUNAMAR due to it being front line and for being part of a decent chain of hotels. When you enter the hotel the reception and bar area have the most fantastic views of the dunes. Food wise you have alot of choice, not exceptional but you cannot complain. Only probs was that after our meal on New... More

We have made many friends with the staff over the years,including Reception manager Antonio,Fransico,Pedro,Jose and the Barman Hepi. We have been friends with these wonderful people all this time. We just love the hotel. Although many changes... More

The IFA Dunamar is a lovely hotel in a fantastic location. The staff are all very polite and hard working. The views from reception are breathtaking. Everywhere is immaculate and very clean. Breakfast is a little manic at times, lots of people rushing round. I found the dining room not such a relaxing experience for me. The food at breakfast... More

Parts of the hotel needs freshening up, especially some rooms that are very worn and have beds that are small and very uncomfortable. Once we got a room without a balcony, which we did not know existed on this category of hotel ????
