I travel a lot as a retired airline employee. This past week my 19 year old daughter and I visited Riu Merengue as a mother/daughter trip. We both were so disappointed. The first thing that bothered us deeply is that most all the male employees as they were working at the bar and dining areas would be consistently trying to... More

Don't listen to any negative reviews, the hotel, staff and holiday was fantastic. Check in was organized and easy. The bellboys were a little slow to bring your luggage. FOOD: buffet food was not too bad, once you found the good things to eat. There were some themed nights. Beach food bar was good for a quick lunch while at... More

In all we could not fault this hotel, it is very clean, majority of staff are very polite and friendly. The rooms were clean, and made up everyday along with clean towels and bath room accessories. Food was great and lots of variety and drinks were great... you could get branded drinks if you asked but to be honest we... More

Went for purely pleasure for our 25th wedding anniversary, but had a rough start with a delay from the Miami airport. We arrived very tired and hungry approx. 4 hours after the scheduled time. But Carlos met us at the reception desk, arranged for our bags to go straight to our room, actually told us he "loved us already" and... More

Did last two weeks in feb. Been before and no change. food, rooms public areas all fine and very clean.Service from staff first rate. I you want to complain about this hotel pay the price for 5* and go elsewhere. Beach not as good as Punta Cana but neither was price. Only mistake we made was using Thomas Cook.
