After reading the reviews we didn't have high expectations for Riu at all. We were definately plesantly surprised. Check in was quick and easy, with drinks provided and the luggage being brought to our room.The rooms are clean, spacious and have everything you could want considering the amount of time to be spent there. For the amount we paid, we... More

We stayed at Christmas last year, lovely resort on beautiful well kept beaches. It is away from anywhere else but Plenty of variety in food and five different restaurants you an go to for a change of scene. There is entertainment which you can avoid if you want to, We are returning this year so I suppose that is the... More

Had an amazing holiday, restful and peaceful just what we needed after a busy year, that is until the weekend when what seemed to be hundreds of locals arrived. I was dozing on the sunbed rudely awakened by dozens of people, jumping into the pool, and all shouting at once .....bedlam however that is my only complaint rooms were lovely... More

Me and my friend visited in September for a two week stay... The hotel is average at best, the decor, the food right down to the entertainment. If your looking for something to do in the evening there isn't any, the animation team try their best but we watched one show where putting a penny in your bum crack to... More

This was my first visit to Riu Merengue, but my 4th time to Puerto Plata, and 7th time to an all-inclusive Caribbean resort. This place was either average or above average in every respect, compared to the 6 others. The initial transfer and check-in was very fast and smooth (as was the check-out). No line-ups, no hassles. A second key... More

Our room had a single sink, large mirror above it with built in hair drier to the side of it. Toilet (Which flushed perfectly every 4-5th time)... More
