My partner and I came here in April for my Birthday. I must after reading some of the reviews, I was alittle worried. After arriving, we found out that we'll be staying in the first part; I think was the garden side. It was more quiter, and less people. Saturday and Sunday the crowds picked up, since the locals come... More

To give a balanced review I have to split my stay into 2 Day 1 to 13 The Rui group has a real knack of delivering an outstanding Holiday experiance, Merengue one of the best I've visited, room well decorated and cleaned to a high standard, Food offer spot on, great selection well prepared. The added value was the staff,... More

My wife and I have just returned from our yearly visit to The Merengue and once again we intend to book for next year. We go for 3 weeks and the number of people doing just that is seemingly growing each year. The rooms are being upgraded with flat screen tvs and new beds. The curtains and soft furnishings are...

This is the story that's been on ITV news - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3097616/Bride-spent-28-000-dream-wedding-day-hospital-party-struck-diarrhoea-vomiting-bug-five-star-Dominican-resort.html There is a lot to add to this. The negligence of the hotel was discussing. Being treated for severe dehydration in hospital on my wedding day because the hotel did not provide drinking water. We've been here twice but will NEVER return. The pool is disgusting. Plese note -... More

My family, friends and I returned from the Riu de Merengue today in what in all was quite a good holiday, mainly because my sister and her new husband got married there. It is a gorgeous place to get married, set in a stunning location with the beach right on your door step. My partner and I stayed for a... More

My husband and I travelled to the Merengue from 17.05.15 until 24.05.2015 to celebrate his birthday. We flew the dreamliner with Thomson and the flight and Thomson experience were excellent. We used the facilities of the Merengue, Village and Bachata as the wristband allows you to use all three which was excellent. On arrival at the Merengue we were greeted... More

Like all hotels, this one has good things and bad things. Unfortunately, the things that were bad, are important to see. I've made three trips to Dominican Republic in the first five months of this year, and I can say unequivocally that this hotel has the worst swimming beach, the worst food, and it is the only hotel that had...

Booked with Thomson with a late deal and it's been a long time since we've done a holiday package. Flight with them on their Dreamliner excellent with lots of leg room, food, as much free booze and transfers were free as well. Got to the hotel and reception were great with drink and room allocation. Got a ground floor room... More

Love this hotel because the resort is huge! The only downside is the wifi...it's limited to the hotel lobby and you only get 90 minutes per day. There are three hotels within this resort - Merengue Village, Merengue Gardens and the Bachata. We stay in the Merengue Gardens as this is central to everything. The pool there is very busy... More
