No room service made it difficult to find food late in the evening. The food in the main restaurant was so repetitive and bland. We couldnt get reservations at any of the restaurants. I read the reviews and tried to get reservations on the day we arrived. The main dining room was very difficult to find a seat. Remember in... More

We stayed from Feb. 19-26. The hotel and grounds were very clean. The food was very good. All the people who worked there were very friendly. Our toilet was leaking half way through the week and we called reception and someone came within 20 mins to fix it. We booked a taxi and had our own tour guide take us... More

Just returned and enjoyed my break away from the snow and cold. My daughter and I flew out of Halifax and met my sister and sister in law who flew from Toronto. I had emailed the hotel to arrange for rooms close to each other and on the second floor. We did get rooms a few doors away from each... More

My fiance and I visited this hotel from February 20th-24th. We went there expecting a 3-star hotel for the price they were charging. We didn't go expecting 5-stars and we didn't get 5-stars. Beware of what you eat: For starters, I got food poisoning mid-trip. I believe it was from the cold salmon that they were serving near the salad... More

I stayed at the RIU Bachata from February 14-22, 2015. As you enter, the decor is somewhat outdated. It feels country like and comes with a big clunky room key. The rooms are semi decent except they don't come with an ironing board or iron. If you ask for an iron, they require a $20 deposit. I had to wait... More

We visited the riu bachata in July 2014, we had a fantastic holiday the air con was a god send in the hotel room due to the weather being red hot, not that I'm complaining. There was no air con in the general restaurant, which was very uncomfortable due to there being 30 of us we could not get in... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here between 9-17th February and will not be returning. Having booked a birthday/valentines getaway to the Dominican Republic, we expected a little luxury and were quite disappointed overall. The hotel itself is ok at a first glance (quite dated, but as it looks in the photos) you could be anywhere when you are on the... More

- food sucks - customer service is beyond horrific - all in all the trip was extremely stressful, I can only say you will find out on your own if you book this resort. Additionally, I gave stayed at the RIU in other islands, but this was unbelievably , without a doubt unacceptable on every level- stayed Feb. 17- 23... More

The hotel was very family friendly. They hosted poolside games everyday, had unlimited drinks all day (never worried about getting dehydrated through the heat!). The main dining area was great. Some rooms a little outdated (old TVs) but hotel amenities were great overall.
