The hotel staff were absolutely accommodating and the room was great . I spent a week at the Riu bachata and I would recommend doing as many excursions as possible. We did the... More

My husband and I spent one week at the Riu Bachata (beginning of July). What a difference to be greeted warmly by the reception staff of a hotel! We bought our wifi for the week ($30 for 4 units). Absolutely no complaints on the internet connection – good connection in our room, at the beach, etc.! FYI, there is free... More

had a wonderful 2 week stay here. Food was well presented, always fresh, lots of variety, even the fussiest of eaters could find plenty to eat. Staff very friendly, even the gardeners say Hola as you walk past. Resort is kept very clean. Drinks are plentiful. Weather of course was gorgeous.

Fantastic beach, loved snorkelling with the fish ROOMS - the rooms were a good size, decorated nicely. Our room was on the... More

First thing must mention the flight on Thomson Dreamliner we paid to upgrade to premium and it was money well spent, in fact so good I could not wait to fly home. Well now to the hotel it's a good distance from the airport and most people on our flight were going to this hotel. Good points At the airport... More

We booked through Thomson and flew on their Dreamliner aircraft. (We usually book flights and pick hotels independently and have travelled quite widely in the world, (but this all inclusive was such good value we thought we would give it a go). Check in at the hotel was very quick despite being part of two coach loads. The rooms are... More
