We paid out the extra for the Premium Suite from the get go so we had no problems what so ever. New modern marble bath and smaller but really nice suite with fridge and private balcony over looking the mountains. Tip daily in USD and our room was immaculately cleaned. House keepers extremely nice though no one spoke English which is fine as you are in South America afterall.
Pool on the premium side was nice but my suggestion is to close it off to children. There are 3 pools in total at the resort. 1 of them should be adult only so they can lounge pool side without all the noise from children.
Premium Restaurant Tilapia was not a canteen as a poster claimed. It was simple constructed to be understated with clean lines and openess. The food was not what you would have at a typical resort. Again, you are in South America now and they cultural infuence was stated in the food offered which was not bad at all. The service we found at the Tilapia Bar & Grill was best of the 3 resturants so we frequented that one and forgot about the others.
Premium Bar Shabono had the best drinks of all the bars. Went for pre dinner cocktails and after dinner. If you want a party destination this is not the resort for you. Its very quiet and extremely peaceful overall. We loved how sprawled out this place was and how low key it presented itself. Its like a small village of it it's own.
Again, previous poster shows phots of a poorly kept tour bus but ours was brand new.
We took the Jeep Tour through the SunWing rep and worth every penny. Great way to explore the island and the diversity of the land and lagoon by boat. All the tours were offered in English & French which was great.
The people at the resort including the security gaurds were all exremely friendly. There is little spoken english but they manage and so did we.
None of the beaches on the island are privately owned. We enjoyed the beach. Once in awhile venders would try to sell jewelery etc...but a polite no thank you and they leave you be the rest of your stay. The waves were huge...huge but alot of fun for everyone it seemed.
Highly recommend Dunes Hotel Beach Resort. If you want a private on the down low vacation at a decent price then go for it. Again, book the premium and pay the extra-its worth it.
