We have just returned from the Riu Merengue and had another fabulous holiday. When looking to book the Riu Merengue with Thomsons on-line, we kept receiving a message saying "Sorry, this hotel is popular, please try other dates". This we did, but kept receiving the same message. In the end we decided to book a flight and book the Riu... More

Rooms: I stayed in room 1051 all appliances were functional, I had no issues with insects or bugs. The room is fairly standard, I had a king size bed with a plasma tv, I slept comfortably every night. Food: The food was typical resort food, they offer a variety so you're bound to find something that you will like. My... More

The entertainment staff and waiters/ bartenders are really friendly and helpful. The hotel was really empty (we went the first week in June). The food is buffet and just like any buffet gets repetitive and tiresome as the week goes on. The drinks of the day were amazing and I'm not a big drinker. You also had a full bottle... More

Stayed here over a year ago. And it is best holiday I've had. Staff and entertainment team were fab. Rooms were lovely. Food choices tended to be the same most nights. But if you book the steak restaurant its a nice change. Weekends were a bit hectic as locals were allowed to use the food area so had to queue... More

The beach is lovely and nothing felt too crowded. Food They don't do American food very well, but their local foods were pretty good. The buffet area was pretty hot and the lighting was ... like, bluish. There was a LOT of choices for food but none of the choices are amazing. Activities The shows are pretty stupid. Being drunk...

Had a brilliant time at the Riu Merengue, staff were excellent and couldnt be more friendlier if they tried. hotel was spotless and food was excellent the buffet restaurant in our opinion was better food than the a la carte restaurants. Ok rooms were a little dated but overall the place is brilliant. We would also recommend a night out... More

First time in a resort but was not disapointed. Nice and clean room, fantastic service. Avoid the Italian restaurant (one of the only bad points in the place) and go for the buffet witch is solid (unless you are an extra picky annoying tourist). You will get plenty of fresh fruit, calamari and other local stuff, so take advantage of... More

Have just arrived home from here after 2 weeks. Hotel and features were good as was food even if usually same thing most nights. Service excellent . Room comfortable for holiday period. Weekends a nightmare, hundred of locals descend and completely ruined our holiday. Children rude and out of control, adults were just as bad, No consideration at meal times... More
