This is our first time at this resort. We generally go to Mexico, Mayan Riviera. The star ratings are always relative to the area you stay in. We stay at 5 * in Mexico, and did not expect to have the same level of resort here. Nor did we spend $2000/person either. A week in the sun, very nice resort,... More

Please ignore all the bad reviews- we were worried after reading them and it was the best hotel we have ever stayed at! - The staff were wonderful, the hotel was beautiful and we were made to feel so welcome. Thank you to all the staff who made our trip so special. We will definitely be coming back next year!

Wow - felt I really needed to submit a review because of the general lack of care from the head of service management - FRIEDRICH. What an a-hole he was and an uncaring jerk. He does not understand service and has quite the attitude on him. And, he thinks good service is just outrightly lying to a client. TERRIBLE MAN.... More

During the week fun resort good holiday but come the weekend locals invade the place and guests are ignored. Rude kids drunk and loud parents. Would not recommend this. We won't be coming back. Even the sunning rep didn't care

We spent 8 days in the Riu Bachata in April 2015 and I honestly do not get where the bad reviews come from. I just came back from the best holiday of my life so far and I think some things need to be cleared up about this place. Fist of all this hotel is located in the Dominican Republic.... More

Excellent service, food and accommodation was immaculate. All staff were friendly and efficient. The resort was beautiful and well maintained. We were there for a wedding and the staff ensured that everything ran smoothly, WOW! Absolutely fantastic! If I have to find a negative it was that we could not obtain currency anywhere. Take $'s with you! Overall a great... More

Went to this hotel with my partner last year and were a bit disappointed. The service was okay. Food was okay. My partner got violently ill for 2-3 days after eating a raw hamburger....entertainment was hard to watch. Room service was horrible! We called for some water (as they barely ever restocked the fridge in the room) while my partner... More

I'll start this review by saying this is our second time at the resort with our first being back in April of 2013. This trip we were 2 Adults and 2 Kids (5 and 7) and we travelled between 21 and 28 April, 2015. When we at the resort in 2013 I would say the resort scored between 4.3 and... More

This resort is what they claim be an All-Inclusive resort. I have been to more than 15 All-Inclusive resorts in my life and this is by far the worst resort I have ever been to, and I would not call it All-Inclusive. I say this since they did not have any sort of gym on the site and at the... More

Lovely weather, lovely place. Food was excellent, accommodation immaculate. Locals as always a pleasure to talk to and always smiling. The resort: Noise, noise and more noise. Boom boxes on the go ALL the time, even in the pool area. Absolutely nowhere in the evening or any other time come to that, to sit and have a quiet drink. The... More
