I had a great time at the hotel, the rooms were cleaned up nicely and everything was in short walking distance.
I would definitely go back to the Riu Merengue, the staff was exceptional also. The only thing that
I wasn't too fond of was the food selection. If should have be a better variety each day.

Overall, the resort was a bit more than okay. The service was good, not spectacular; the food was just okay, not good for vegetarians or those liking green foods in their diet; the entertainment was cheesy and inappropriate at times; the beach was too rocky (ocean part); but the facility was clean and the views were great.

The hotel was great for a family vacation but not for a couple that just wants to have some drinks and sleep on the beach. Also you have to make reservations at 7:00 am to visit two out of the three restaurants in the hotel. I didn't take a vacation to wake up that early, so I only got to visit one restaurant during my stay.
