Just returned home today after an amazing holiday at the Riu Bachata. I don't know where to start except to say ignore the negative reviews!! The resort is beautiful. We were greeted with drinks from the friendly staff and check in was very swift. Everywhere you look there is someone cleaning or sweeping up leaves from the trees. We sat... More

I cannot say enough about this hotel. We were there for 2 weeks last May, for a wedding. The rooms are clean, food was excellent, and available almost 24/7. It is the Atlantic side, the ocean can be a little rough but, if you like snorkeling there is lots to see. Everything you could want to do is within an... More

We stayed at the RIU Bachata from March 16-23/15. We are a family of 4 with children 10 and 12. We have been fortunate enough to travel to 3, 4, 5 star properties so this will be an honest review. This was our second time there and frankly, we went because we got an incredible deal from Toronto. The first... More

I am a person with restricted mobility. I walk with a walker. The Riu Bachata is wheel chair accessible. There are beautiful walkways through the resort and along the beach going to the sister resorts Merengue and Village. The beach is not too wide so it is easy to reach the sea. I was happy that the beach is covered... More

Overall Very good value for money - especially for a longer stay - from the UK worked out at £300 flight per person, £300 per person per week all inclusive hotel via Thomson. Thomson flight comfortable - plenty of legroom. Key point; The staff at the Riu Bachata made the holiday great and will be back. Hotel grounds, buildings, pathways... More

I went to riu bachata for 1 week with my best friend and we had a great time. The hotel room we got was in building 8 which was right in the middle of everything (bar, entertainment, pool, lobby). The room service was very good. We left at 8 am every morning to eat breakfast and by 8:30 it was... More

We stayed at the RIU Bachata for two weeks. Don’t understand those who have negative or mediocre reviews for this hotel. over the past two years I visited Puerto Plata four times and stayed at different hotels. As far as I experienced this was one of the best hotels I have visited in the areas although all the others were... More

Beautiful property, clean rooms, great food and the staff are excellent. Your wish is their command. Very friendly and safe environment. If I have to come up with negatives I'd say they need more non smoking areas. Also an easier way to sign up for the a la carte restaurants. We actually were able to sign up for the Italian... More
