Went to Riu Bachata Last Year with my Boyfriend, Best friend and her Boyfriend but we ended up meeting people from all over Canada which we still keep in contact with. This Resort is Definitely the best Riu in Puerto Plata. The entertainment was always great. Thank you to the woman cleaning our room. Maria, always did a great job.... More

In order to get bottled water we had to steal some off a maids cart as we asked daily to have it stocked and it was not. Called the desk for blankets took two and a half hours to get them.... More

I never usually write reviews of resorts or vacation spots that I visit but my experience at the Riu Bacahata Resort was unforgettable and I knew after returning that I had to warn others of my encounters. It all started when we were proceeding to check in and they offered us (a group of 5) a room with 2 beds,... More

We stayed here from the 9th -23rd August 2015. I had read all the reviews leading up to our holiday and admit that some were spot on. I had contacted the hotel ahead of our arrival to inquire about ground floor rooms, as two of our party of six had mobility issues. We had been booked into first floor rooms... More

We are currently here on a family vacation and is has been horrible. We checked-in on Tuesday. The beach is filthy and has tons of rocks; not an ideal place to swim. The pool on the premises is okay but the service is horrible; they refill all their bottles of alcohol, not only of bottom shelf liquor (paying top shelf... More
