Riu Merengue - Puerto Plata

   Set amidst tropical gardens and surrounded by mountains, the deluxe Riu Merengue is a beachfront village-style resort, located just 15 minutes from beautiful Puerto Plata.

   Riu Merengue - Resort the first in the resort and is located in the middle. Like Riu Bachata, it includes a large, open-air, plaza-like bar, an amenity Riu Mambo does not have.

   What to expect:   Catering to an international clientele (possibility of topless sunbathing), the resort comprises three side-by-side hotels—, Riu Mambo, and Riu Bachata—sharing an 800m (about one-half mile) beach along the Atlantic Ocean. Connected by a paved walkway, the hotels resemble low-rise pastel-colored villages. Riu Merengue guests enjoy access to all resort facilities, entertainment, and activities.

   Featuring 544 guestrooms, comfort and pleasure are ensured with spacious accommodations that include special amenities, like a mini-bar and liquor dispenser and a wide array of restaurants, bars and facilities for a truly thrilling experience.

   This fun and friendly resort provides exceptional service down to the last detail, complemented by the renowned Caribbean Street promenade and Riu's exchange privileges program throughout the entire Riu Resort.
