Stayed at this hotel from 18th to 25th February. Was apprehensive about going because of bad reviews, but I had nothing to worry about. This may have been my first time in a Riu Hotel, but we could not find one thing to moan about. Yes it's full of loud Canadian's, but they are lovely and loud in a good...

A last minute booking, but wished we had chosen somewhere else. Room: We stayed in block 11 (1122) nice quiet room which overlooked the cove and jetty where the cruise ships dock. We had a lovely Canadian couple next to us - Hi Jackie & Paul if you are reading this!! Kept very clean, although I did notice that mattress...

I have just returned from one week in the Hotel Riu Bachata and I feel that I have been conned as Thomson advertise this as a platinum 5 star hotel which it most certainly is not by any means. The hotel is dated, in comparison to some, but that was never an issue as it was spotlessly clean and the...

We read some bad reviews and were a bit worried what we would find when we arrived, but were surprised when we got there to find everything was Fantastic, ok it's not 5 star and parts are a bit dated but good value for the price. Plenty of Sunbeds round the pools always found a table in the dining room...

The Puerto Plata area is beautiful, the weather was great, the beach and view is beautiful. The staff was very pleasant and friendly. The food here was not so good. The restaurants on the resort did not have good food either. I wanted to have more of a Dominican or Caribbean theme types of foods and fruits. The food should...

We picked the Riu Bachata for our winter vacation for few reasons. Mostly, because the location of the resort looked really great and we wanted to finally try a Riu property. What was it like? Check in: Fast. Really fast. They had an extra desk prepared for us with several member of staff. It took only few minutes despite a...

This resort is like anything you would expect from a RIU - it was consistent, clean, friendly and an overall enjoyable vacation. We traveled as a very large group (there was roughly 22 of us) and no one really had any major complaints. LOCATION: 2/5 The overall location of this hotel was not a positive for me for a few...

Visited this hotel for 1 week at the end of March 2017, rooms were dated for a Riu chain but its cheaper than the others so can't complain - always clean, minibar got replenished once during our weeks stay but everyone seemed to get it refilled daily so we were just unlucky or had a thirsty cleaner, food is suitable...
