The commute from the airport to the hotel is about half an hour, the check in is very fast and the room was ready for us even though it was well before check-in time. Our room was very clean and lovely, the cleaning ladies did a fabulous job each...

The best villas are 22 and 25 from distance point of view but then again, the...

I put a lot of work into choosing a resort for our family. This year i chose the Riu Merengue. Trust me, it didn't disappoint...speedy check in, friendly reception staff. The rooms are a bit dated...oh well....we only spend sleep time in there. The entire resort is spotless, and staff work non stop. The snack bar is nice, we enjoyed...

My wife and I just returned from our first trip to Dominican and I can say, without a doubt that it won't be our last. We had read mainly positive reviews about this resort and they were all right on the money. The resort is clean, like meticulously clean. There are grounds people out at first light picking up leaves,...

We travelled with 2 kids, 13 and 7 in March 2011. The resort was well maintained, very clean with friendly staff. While staying at the Mambo you may also use the facilities at the Merange and Bachata. We did check these other resorts out but seemed to like the Mambo side the best. Including all three resorts its it a...
