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 were extremely loud, ignorant and rude. They took over the pool and the children were seen spitting and urinating in the pool. None of the... More

Am currently staying here and have been here for two days. The hotel is really nice and rooms are comfortable and even space for me. The staff are all very friendly and nothing seems too much to ask . Free wifi is a bit of a white lie and isn't available throughout the resort - only in the lobby. And... More

The grounds are very well kept, the crews are constantly cleaning, picking up leaves etc. We stayed at the Merengue Gardens, and Village. The Gardens... More
