Just returned from a weeks holiday from the Riu Bachata, and what can I say! Do not listen to the bad reviews, neither me or my boyfriend could find a fault with this hotel. We arrived at the airport and we had prearranged buses to the hotel, there was no problem with this, the hotel is about a 40 minutes... More

The hotel was fair, but the service needed big help. Our room was overrun with ants to the point where my friend pulled his sheet back and we saw a train of them. We asked someone to come and see so we can get a resolution, they actually brought someone with a can of bug spray that filled the room... More

We have just returned from the Riu Bachata having booked at relatively short notice. Our plan was to relax and generally we did. This was our third trip to a Riu and we found it to be generally the same format. We had requested a balcony which got sun in the afternoon before our visit and did not get it... More

Booked a last minute trip to the Riu Bachata in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic for a great price with First Choice. The flight was good on the new Dreamliner and saved around an hour each way. Hotel was nice and we emailed them in advance to ask for a high floor, non smoking room with sea view. The room was... More

We booked a last minute deal to this resort and didn't really research it as much as we would usually do and to be honest after booking and reading the reviews we were a bit worried about going but I am pleased to say that we had nothing to worry about about. When we arrived in Dominican we were met... More

Our stay was at a very busy time of year. Valentines Day. Food was Good. Not as bad as other reviews would like you to believe. We did one of the restaurant nights. Yes you must get up early (for me while on holiday) to make a reservation. Steak night, Not worth it. Stay in bed. Yes, some of the... More

travelled solo (married woman) for a week in April. Check in was quick. They first put me in a room around the corner from the main entertainment, so not good if you like to go to bed early. Maybe they thought I was a partier, lol. The room was also at the back door of a service entry so it... More
