My wife and I have stayed at this hotel before at this time of year. The location, service, food and quality of this hotel is excellent. 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 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

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 ????

Arrived on 1st November check in was quite quick. Room allocated was spotless but not what I had requested. It has taken me three days to realise we have been allocated a economy standard double and not the standard double we have paid for. Went to reception to show them that we had been allocated the wrong room and they... More

Booked this hotel for my daughter and myself for mid-term break. We booked through the travel agent whom was so helpful and nice. Everything was very smooth until we reached our (4*) hotel. We booked a double room and were given an economy single room, on the corner of the 14th floor, no balcony, a tiny window with little daylight... More

Visited together with my 16 year old daughter. We enojed hotel facilities, the nice pools, the buffets and the nearby long and wonderful beach. Also nice were to facilities to have a bite at noon in some of the beach restaurant or the pool restaurant of the hotel where the food was fresh and tasty.
