I would stay away from this place for one simple reason – the hotel staff. From what I could tell after staying there for two weeks and speaking with one of the employees who does not engage in corruption, the front desk tries to convince hotel guests into taking the tours they offer and the pitch is always the same...

The Merengue Hotel is away from the beach, a budget Hotel with a nice pool and restaurant area. We came here at the end of a two week bike tour for a night before our flight home. We got an "upgrade to a "2 bedroom suite". The rooms were right at the street, across from several pubs wih loud music... More

I stayed with my boyftiend because we were going to a concert. It is perfect for overnight stay. When we arrived, there was a jam in the reception. They weren't organized. It was kind of a mess. The manager wanted to be efficient but it turned out to be like crazy service. It's not all inclusive, you have to pay... More

Though this is a new hotel so the rooms and grounds are very nice the enjoyment ended there for us. We stayed for 3 nights and found the staff to range from indifferent to downright rude. We once waited at the front desk while the door to the back office was closed for 15 minutes and we could clearly hear... More

We stayed here for 3 nights before attending a wedding at the Hard Rock. The hotel was very beautiful and a tranquil setting with a nice pool. The restaurant was great and thoroughly enjoyed the chef who would sing to us at breakfast. Our second day we were leaving early for a tour and he actually made breakfast for us... More
