just returned from another gorgeous week at this resort. was glad to see that they changed the entertainment schedule around finally after years and years of the same tired routines but can't say the change was for the better. entertainment variety was a plus but the quality took a hit from what it was before. was also glad to see...

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

We just returned home from our stay at RIU Merenge. I'll start with, for the price we paid ($900 all in) this resort met our expectations. As frequent travellers we know you get what you pay for. The resorts grounds are lovely. Very lush and tropical with lots of shade. We loved this. The staff are lovely as well. Very... More

I stayed at the Merengue between the 8th and 23rd April and had such a lovely time. We went on a couple of excursions, the extreme mega adventure and the outback safari, Both of which were amazing. The staff at the hotel could not have been more helpful, If something was wrong (we had issue with our air con) they... More

well, I have just got back from 11 nights in this hotel staying with my mother. the location is lovely, the hotel is spotless - yet the bedroom décor is a bit 80s but it's spotlessly clean. they literally have people running around cleaning 24 7. the staff can't be faulted, food very typical of a 3/4 star all inclusive,...

Just got back from a week's almost perfect stay at the Riu Merengue. The resorts were great (there were two – Merengue and Bachatta) and we could choose and pick where to eat, drink, swim and be entertained between the two resorts. The beaches were well maintained. The rooms and facilities were in pretty good shape, though Merengue pool needs... More

Was my first time traveling to the Dominican Republic ever. I picked RIU Merengue assuming it would an amazing experience. At first I was enjoying my time there and the peacefulness until the weekend when locals came. They are simply rude and have no respect for those who come from other countries and are trying to enjoy. They made the... More
