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.
Riu Merengue Resort has its own pool, children's club, open-air theater for nightly entertainment, activities schedule, and choice of restaurants, including theme-dinner buffets.
Guests may drink at all hotels' bars and eat breakfast, lunch, and snacks at all restaurants. Guests must eat dinner at their own hotel’s restaurants.
The majority of amenities, activities, and gratuities at this resort are included in the room rate; guests will not be charged extra for the majority of amenities and activities (scroll up to the All-Inclusive Details section for more information).
A Caribbean-style street of brightly colored shops runs between this hotel and Riu Bachata Hotel. The street includes an art gallery, clothing boutiques, craft shops, a pharmacy, a pool room, a photo studio/lab, a hair salon, a medical center, a fitness center, and a spa with a unisex sauna and services such as waxing, the Mayan Mud Wrap, the Tropical Fruit Wrap, and open-air massage in beach cabanas. Open 4 PM to 3 AM, a casino at Riu Bachata contains slot machines, electronic-poker machines, and three blackjack, one Caribbean Stud Poker, and two roulette tables.
