I would like to ditto jessam12's review. We were part of the same party, and I personally felt the same. Please do not look at the professional photos and think 'well there are not many trees!

We have just returned from 3 weeks at the Riu Bachata. Our first experience of an all inclusive hotel. We were agreeably surprised by the quality of the accommodation and the hotel complex. Spotless throughout and immaculately maintained grounds. All completed by happy staff. One could nitpick about the food and quality of the beverages, but what you receive for...

If this would have been my first visit to the Dominican Republic I wouldn't have gone a second time. Fortunately this was my fifth holiday in the Dominican so I knew what to expect. The Riu Bachata left me speechless ! The food was inedible and I struggled to find anything to eat. I mainly ate salad and fruit. The...

I just returned from the Riu Bachata two days ago and I can tell you the bad reviews do not hold up. This is a 5star resort based on Dominican standards. It is not a 5 star Hilton here in North America so if you go in expecting that, clearly it won't be up to your high expectations. If you...
