Overview

The Riu Merengue All Inclusive Puerto Plata is a tropical paradise where turquoise waters make gentle splashes into secluded coves. Caribbean palm trees and gardens surround two outdoor swimming pools that are lined with local rocks and stones. A central island allows you to relax in between these heated pools. Featuring three tennis courts that are illuminated at night, the Riu Merengue All Inclusive Puerto Plata is the perfect place to play some singles or doubles with other guests.

Highlights

Key facts

The Riu Merengue All Inclusive Puerto Plata is located along Maimon Bay of Puerto Plata. After swimming in the tropical waters of the hotel's private beach, you can head to the Los Almendros and pick your favorite American and Dominican dishes from a hot buffet. Italian food is also served. If you get thirsty while swimming in the pools, ask the bartenders at Macumba & Mangu to make you some cool cocktails. Located on the beach, the La Tambora bar also serves fine spirits. A great place to socialize and share some drinks with friends is the La Rumba & Perez Prado, a hip lounge. In addition to playing table tennis and billiards, you can work out in the gym at Renova Spa. Massages and other body treatments are offered at this facility on Caribbean Street.

Policies

 

  • At least one person who is at least 21 years old in every room. The hotel reserves the right of admission and therefore we may not allow any room in which all guests are younger than 21 years.

In all RIU hotels and room categories (unless specified otherwise), the maximum occupancies are four bodies per room, either three adults and one child or two adults and two children. Four adults are not permitted. All bodies in each room will fit on existing bedding, any special request remains upon availability. Children and third adult will sleep in existing bedding. Children under two years stay and eat free. Their age must be specified in the booking.
  • Honeymooners will receive a surprise gift in their room upon arrival. Certificate of marriage will be required upon arrival. Any special request such as extra beds, roll-aways, cribs or room next door, is subject to hotel availability. Guests will be informed at check-in.

This was one of the best trips ever. The hotel is nice. Food was good. Deserts could have been better. The only real negative about hotel is the bed and pillows. You have to do waterfall trip, so amazing! !

Wonderful trip to the DR

Would recommend Tue, Feb 10, 2015
The hotel was a great experience. The staff was wonderful and made our time very enjoyable. Only complaints were that the beds were pretty hard and the room smelled musty through the entire stay. Would go back if we had the opportunity.

Great for family and singles

Would recommend Mon, Feb 9, 2015
Loved the mini bar inside the hotel. Perk if you stay at this location you still have access to the other resort. The staff is very helpful. Only downside was the limited wifi.

Attractions

Great activities provided by hotel. not as expensive as most resorts.

I would say you get a good value for the prince. Do not expect the top of the line food or service, if you do not have sky high expectations you will enjoy yourself. It is a well maintained hotel with needed amenities.
