First of all DO NOT listen to the people who give the Riu Bachata a bad review. We have been to the DR on 7 occasions and this has been by far the best yet. The grounds are very well kept, the cleaning staff do a fabulous job, the food was excellent and there was always something different at the... More

Loved every minute and didn't want to leave. Room was comfortable and clean every day. Grounds are well maintained. Pools were beautiful and very clean, but to get choice setting, reserve your chair early. We did on the way to breakfast in morning. Every morning we walked the beach from Bachata down to the Mambo and have breakfast there. This... More

April 8-15/2014. Weather/climate perfect. Staff very good Food: average: eat the soups and try the goat meat! Buffet: worth standing in line to wait for the freshly grilled meats/fish. Desserts are ok. Fresh fruits are great. Steak resto: don't order the pork chops. More like roadkill. The ribeye was best choice. Cooked medium rare. Baked potato delicious. Alcohol: all inclusive...

Although we enjoyed our holiday in certainly wasn't the best Riu hotel we have stayed in. The pool area was a little tired and quite difficult to get out of for some of the more mature guests. The swim up bar was often crowded by large groups of people, which made it difficult to get served. We discovered that the... More

The entire resort is spotless. The staff is most helpful and congenial. The rooms are average but comfortable. The food is above average for an all inclusive but below a superior AI. The daytime entertainment is available for whatever one wants to do or not do. The nighttime programs were a disaster, useless, degrading and silly. It was an embarrassment... More

This was our second trip to the DR, the last one being a week-long venture to the Puerto Plata area in 2007. This time we once again stayed in the Puerto Plata vicinity at the Riu Bachata from April 01 to April 08, 2014. We were motivated by the especially long Canadian winter this year, and the good deals in... More

We have just returned from the Riu Bachata, 9th April 2014. The hotel, food, entertainment, services and staff were excellent, there was everything you could ever need and nothing was too much trouble for them in making our holiday great. We travelled to celebrate a Golden Wedding anniversary and a birthday, and the meals for these we had in the... More

Me, my sister along with a friend and her mother stayed here from March 25-April 1/2014. I do not have one negative thing to comment on. I was in the DR 3 years ago in Punta Cana and also stayed at a 5 star and came home feeling like I would never again travel to DR. The Riu Bachata changed... More

Stayed at the RIU with 2 girlfriends and had an awesome time! To be honest, I'm not sure why this property is not rated higher on trip advisor. One of the great things about this place is it's location. It is approx. 30-40 mins from the airport close to a small fishing town called Maimon. In fact, the hotel arranged... More
