Check in was ok, but took ages for the luggage to arrive to our room, so we hit the bar. We had travelled with my parents (my mum has difficulty in walking), requested to be close to all amenities. We were not next door either.... One day we had to wade through water to get my parents some food and... More

So overall, we were happy with our experience. A few things: There's a lot of smoking. We've encountered that before at resorts, but this seemed to be the most at places we've stayed at. The fact that we had so much rain may have contributed...you're still able to get away from it, but you may find your breakfast / pool... More

We got back last night, we had a rainy week but had fun anyhow. I wouldn't call it a 5 star but a decent 4star and a good deal for your money. If I had any real complaint it would be that I felt the alcohol was weak. For the most part everything was OK, food, entertainment, rooms and beach.... More

So we were apoplectic about weather concerns before we left for Puerto Plata and tried every which way to wiggle out of our non-refundable one-week vacation, but we actually had a pretty good time.

I have to say I wouldn't wish anyone to have to stay at this hotel. RIU should be ashamed, especially for employing someone with the title service manager when he doesn't know what customer service is.

I spent a very nice week mid October this year. I usually don't write reviews but I find it's totally unfair that some people leave such bad reviews. I cannot recognize the resort some are speaking about here. I came to Riu Bachata 3rd time after a break of 3 years. The hotel is clean, even if rooms are outdated.... More
