The flight leaving Trinidad was six hours late..anyone travelling to Margarita via Laser Airlines should seriously consider another carrier. Laser is very unprofessional and disorganised. The greeting at Dunes was very festive and welcoming with a complimentary drink and a few minutes of dance from the staff.
The buffet style restaurants "Tilapia and "La Cachama" the menu was very limited and the quality(taste) of the dishes were extremely poor.
To my disappointment the speciality restaurant "luciano" was not available for premium all inclusive guests. You had to pay $100 to eat there.
The silver lining for dining was "El Caney", the a la carte beach restaurant, the service was excellent and the food was great.
There is a swamp/mangrove bordering Dunes resort, as a result there is an unbearable presence of biting mosquitoes on the property. The premium area of the resort was well kept, however the main area was not kept up to 4star standard as indicated, I would say 2 star at best. There is stagnant water in unmaintain pools and fountains in lobby areas and other areas. The beach is not safe for bathing, however the swimming pools were very inviting and enjoyable. There are a number of cats that roam around the property so you should be aware of this, they didn't disturb me though my g/f wanted to play with them.
Rooms in the premium area were relatively clean, houskeeping only give you 1 towel per person per day, so when you shower in the afternoon after they clean, the same wet towels must be used at night and the following morning. Balcony doors must be kept closed at all times, or else mosquitoes will invade.
Again Laser Airlines which was scheduled to leave at 9:45pm, left at 2:00am the following morning....with no apologies nor compensation. Check out is at 1:00pm, and they were nice enough to allow us to have dinner before we left theresort. I hope this was helpful.
