Me and my husband went to the Rui merengue for 2 weeks in January to get away from all the rain we have been having, although we did have 3 days of rain it was still lovely and warm. The hotel was lovely, always clean and the staff were very friendly, we never had to wait at the bar for... More

We visited end of January, one of the peak season weeks. The hotel was full and within the hotel dining rooms, lobby and pool and bars people were talking and noisey. Despite this the staff were pleasant and the animation team were tremendous. The respect the staff gave all visitors, wherever they were from was commendable. The main dining room... More

The trio of Riu hotels in this location offer the experience of staying at one (In our case the Riu Merenge) and the option of using most of the facilities in the others. With the exception of dinner at the the Bachata, you could eat, swim, play games at any of the hotels. So in essence, you get 3 hotels... More

Our agent called and was able to get us in. They were super nice when and helped us to feel calm after the nerve racking experience of arriving at the other... More

Were really amazed at the Riu Merengue, the attentions are top notch, the room, the food, the reception, the housekeeper, to the painters. It is amazing what you live in this hotel. It was an unforgettable experience for the whole family. From all we want to thank.

Excuse the length, however I was getting iffy on my choice of visiting after reading some of the reviews, and decided to write/respond as my thoughts came up. We stayed at Merengue Gardens from Jan 28 to Feb 4, 2016. Seamless check in and check out services. After returning, I'm having a difficult time putting the negative comments I've read... More

We stayed at the Merengue Garden from January 28 to February 4 2016. The staff are lovely and are always looking to see what needs to be done - the staff are always attentive. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are tired but clean - two beds together make a "king size." The food at the buffet is... More
