"Overall it was a nice trip because of the great weather and it's wide span of beach because the resort has three hotels connected. The entertainment team is very enthusiastic and friendly, and organizes activities and games through the day. However they don't have a show every night and the schedule is not posted. The beach party was rained out, but the coconut party was great. The rooms are reasonable size with three single beds and kept clean, but the bedding smell moldy and there're always mosquitoes in the room. Every one got bitten a lot, both inside and outside! Should have brought more repellent since they don't provide any like other resorts. The mosquito I killed on the mirror was still there when we checked out three days later. We find two, three or four bath towels each day, so most days we need to call for more towels. Half the time front desk doesn't pick up so we need to personally go over there (and they'll tell you to call). Towels arrived between 30 minutes to a few hours, so we've learned to bring back a couple of clean beach towels every day just in case. There were no blankets on two of the beds, so we have to request them the next day after being cold all night. They only have one restaurant with two kinds of dinner other than the buffet, definitely not living up the 4.5 stars they claim to be. This is also the only resort I've been to that has no hot tub. One last caution: do not book trips with Sunwing! I waited for a whole hour early in the morning, and they still claim I missed the bus when they were no show (I did ask every drive/tour guide who showed up)!"

"I had a wonderful time in Riu Merengue, Puerto Plata. The resort was gorgeous. The employees were friendly and impressively fluent in so many languages. The food was delicious, too! I have a few suggestions for improvement, however. First of all, I am an avid windsurfer. Upon my arrival, I reserved a windsurf board and sail. When it came time to use it, however, the board had multiple holes in it and was missing the fin. It was impossible for me to use it and I lost my reservation. Also, my boyfriend and I used a paddle boat. We took it out and then had to wave for a motor raft to come and get us pretty far out. We were given a paddle boat without a fin and were unable to gear/maneuver it. It was very scary and upsetting because we then lost our spot on the reservation list. Another thing I have to say I was disappointed with was that people reserved chaises on the beach and pool-side with their towels for hours making it impossible for others to use. This was something irritating from Day 1. I would STRONGLY urge the staff of the resort to strictly enforce the 'do not reserve chaises' policy. It was very annoying. Lastly, reservations for the 2 steak houses needed to be made between 7 and 11am. One had to be waiting on line for said reservations BY 6:45am or they would not get a spot. By 7:10am, the reservations were completely full. A better system should be put in place."

"We have a nice vacation in Riu Merengue there is no negative comments about resort. Our frustration was crated by transportation from airport to resort, which took one hour and fifty min. instate twenty five min. There is just 15 mile from Puerto Plata Air Port to the resort ."

"My family came to visit me in the Dominican Republic where I live. The resort was very clean, the staff friend and efficient. The food very plentiful with a wide variety to choose from and very good. The entertainment was exceptional. The entertainment staff did an excellent job of getting everyone involved in the activities and just having lots of FUN! I will definitely book another trip to this resort and highly recommend it to everyone, because there was something to do for all ages... including just doing nothing at all but relaxing."

"As an overall experience we had a wonderful time! The weather was great- the facilities and grounds were beautiful. the staff was very friendly, helpful and very attentive. We were impressed with the knowledge of languages. With this being said, we need to be very honest and advise the food was a dismal 2 and the entertainment was as well a 2 at best. The food was very bland and unsatisfying. A lack of sauces and gravies for meats, and lack of salad dressings made for boring eating. It didn't matter if you ate at the buffet or at one of the restaurants. I would think the staff would realize they had a food issue when all of the plates still have most of the food left on them. I also would think they would have choices for the masses not the few- I don't consider prune ice cream a flavor anyone would want... Perhaps they should bring in a consulting firm - a fresh set of eyes would certainly see the food issues as they are very visible. Having to make a reservation for the specialty restaurants only between 7am- 9 am for the same evening seems to not be needed as those restaurants are not more than half full at any sitting on any day we passed by. I was also very disappointed with the entertainment - Although the entertainment staff has a lot of energy there is very little to do in the evenings. They spend lots of time with useless and unimpressive staff dancing and the shows they put on at night are all lip sinked. When dancing with the children the staff person should be in front of the kids so they can follow along. I also think they should have other options at night other than watching a very unimpressive show- Perhaps game night? i.e. Bingo? board games? Vegas night? Show a movie? We were there during the super bowl and it would have been great if they showed the game on the big screen. The PAS (public address system) is not very good and you cannot understand what they are saying on the microphone. this is very annoying as it is already hard to understand the MC with his accent. Also screaming into microphone doesn't help. they should also have better signs up for entertainment and show information at the other hotels. I would have liked more options for evening entertainment. Overall we had a great time, we did go for the weather, and beach time- and it was awesome! "
