When we arrived at the hotel we had to wait over 2 hours to get our room, and once we...More
Just returned from the riu merengue, and I had a bitter sweet experience. At peurto plata airport be aware of the unofficial porters whom whisk away your cases, track them all of 100m, then demand $10 at the coach

1. The pools close at 6pm. there are nightly shows that end around 1030-11. there is a disco on site but you have to pay for drinks. There are a few bars that are pretty crowded. Smoking us permitted everywhere except in restaurants, so if you area non smoker, this might be annoying. The beach is rocky except for a roped off area that is nice and sandy. 3. The town is a bit of a drive from the resort. I honestly wouldn't recommend leaving the resort unless you are on a guided excursion. 4. The rooms are villas that have kind of confusing paths. Depending where your room is, it can be a bit of a walk. 5. there are no elevators. The villas are 2 stories with 4 rooms on each level.
just a word of caution (sorry, I can't tell if you are male or female by your username) the staff members are very sexually aggressive towards women so I don't recommend walking anywhere alone in the resort after dark.
We were given vague directions to our villa, and no one assisted us there. The walkways are confusing so insist that someone give you a map. (the maps help a little but still aren't the greatest) I helped show an elderly... More
We were given vague directions to our villa, and no one assisted us there. The walkways are confusing so insist that someone give you a map. (the maps help a little but still aren't the greatest) I helped show an elderly couple to their villa personally because the staff wouldn't.
