    This was our first time to the Dominican and being a same sex couple we were unsure of what to expect. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised and had an excellent time. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and our rooms were cleaned everyday. The beach is lovely and bring your own snorkel! The coral is beautiful and... More

    I had been to this resort a few years back, which my kids remembered as being a great positive experience. We had switched to the Bahia Principe chain because of their friendly environment for the kids, but this year budget was tight and decided to book a more affordable option. So back we went to Puerto Plata and here is... More

    I hate to say this because my mother is from the Dominican Republic and I have visited and enjoyed my visits many, many times before. This time however was HORRIBLE, to say the least, all due to Riu Merengue. First of all, the hotel was filled and I mean FILLED with locals. Now, this wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing... More

If you want a clean, safe, nice resort with good food, at a relatively cheap price in the Dominican : THIS IS YOUR PLACE. Pros :... More

    Rooms are lovely with a terrace or balcony. All are located away from the main building in what look like little houses. Room drinks also included 5 or 6 Optics. Food was excellent, good quality and loads of variety. (only wime food is not available is between around 2am and 6am) Drinks, plenty of variety and staff who come round... More

    We had been to this resort in the past and decided to go back because of the location and service of this resort. The staff is AMAZING. They treat their guests like royalty. This time around, I don't have any complaints except for the overload of locals at the hotel. The locals don't respect other visitors and take over the... More
