I'm particularly not that picky, but feel compelled to inform you that this hotel does not have consistent running water. When the water is running is yellowish and of poor quality. The air conditioning system did not work. I called the front desk twice, they came to the room but the issue continued. I actually rented 3 rooms because we... More

I have to review this place because it is a really good convenient place to stay in this area. It is not so easy to find such a place at a decent price. Most everything in the room works, it is maintained well, which is rarely the situation in this type of hotel in the DR. Clean. Friendly staff. Decent... More

Just got back from Riu Merengue, nice hotel, food could have been a bit more varied, breakfast was always delicious. Tried sushi for the first time on the Chinese night and a few other different foods. Lovely beach, the gardners worked tirelessly to keep up with falling leaves, the weather was perfect. Long hot sunny days, perfect way to relax,... More

Upon arrival, it seemed decent enough. After 1 night, I was bitten by bugs laying in bed. There is a karaoke bar on one side of the street and a disco on the other side of the street, so a quiet night sleep is not possible. There are no "do not disturb signs" to put on the outside of your... More

This hotel is well situated, in the main street with small shops and restaurants and close to the wonderful, long local beach. Also its garden is pretty and swimming pool good. The internet works well everywhere at the place. But obviously rooms need better maintanance and less "it will be repaired tomorrow" attitude. There was no working safety box and... More

This is our 8th visit to the hotel...from the first visit, this hotel has had it's problems...but nothing so bad that we don't want to return. The hotel meets our needs for location and a hot consistent breakfast. The staff is always pleasant but lacks professionalism...they want you to be satisfied but you can tell that the management has failed... More

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and the service was pathetic. The room was a bit dirty and the bedsheets were stained. The furniture were old. The room safe wasn't working and the hotel staff couldn't get it fixed. One of the staff tried to cheat us when we took his help in dropping us in his car... More

We stayed at this hotel only one night because there was some confusion with our reservation at the hotel we had booked. We stayed 12/18/15. This unassuming place can give you a bang for your money. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. If you want a no frill and budget hotel this is it. It is not close to... More

Hotel Merengue's photos make this place look like a postcard from the 1950's -- faded and old. We were surprised, then, to find that it was an upstanding place with comfortable rooms, nice bathrooms, and access to a small pool that includes a swim-up bar! The location is in "downtown," if you can call it that, which makes it a... More

The rooms are older, but well maintained, cleaned daily and well stocked for a medium priced hotel. The water pressure and temperature was no less than what you would expect at a more expensive property. Other reviews complained of insects, I personally had no experience with insects. The in room WIFI had a strong signal and consistent. Hotel security was... More
