Hotel Overview
The All Inclusive Riu Merengue is a world-class hotel that caters to families, the younger crowd, and businessmen alike, and the fact that it shares its already comprehensive facilities with two other hotels—that is, the Riu Bachata and the Riu Mambo—allows it to give its guests more options and benefits it would've otherwise lacked if it were not in the middle of an extensive hotel chain. The Riu Merengue's half-a-mile or of beachfront property is blessed with a panoramic view of the inimitable Atlantic Ocean as well.

The Riu Merengue is part of a successful hotel chain that links it and its sibling establishments together in one compound within a large Dominican Republic beachfront property. In a nutshell, the Riu Merengue All Inclusive Hotel in Puerto Plata is composed of large, open-air, and plaza-like structures similar to those found at the Riu Bachata as well as all inclusive amenities, literally dozens of recreational activities, and a lively nightlife for the younger guests.

Many people take note that the Riu Merengue All Inclusive Hotel in Puerto Plata (and its brethren resorts) all sport a distinctive pastel coloring that make them look like villages instead of hotels.

The harmony between hotel and beach is what makes the Riu Merengue and the rest of the hotels in the Riu Resort hotel chain so special.

To maintain the provincial feel of this seaside resort, the All Inclusive Riu Merengue's decor includes granite bathroom vanities, tile floors, and rattan furniture.
