Extremely friendly staff and very very clean rooms and grounds. The food was ok but there was almost no variety. It got boring over the course of the week. Easy to get drinks. Chairs and beach towels were always in short supply, but not uncommon to similar resorts. Overall, this is a good value for the money hotel and what... More

Just returned home from a weeks holiday at the RIU Bachata. If you are looking for a great resort at affordable prices, this is the place. The food was excellent, the property very nice, rooms were good for the Dominican. Beds a bit hard and pillows terrible, but this is to be expected in this country. The nightly entertainment was...

Firstly we booked through Thompson, this hotel is not platinum by any stretch of the imagination and certainly isn't anywhere near a 5 star. There are 3 hotels in the complex and you can use all the facilities. Meaning you can book to stay at the merengue which is £200 cheaper and spend all your time at the bachata I'm... More

Came back to the Bachata after having a great time last year and had an even better time this year. The staff are great at this resort and they work hard to keep everyone happy and the resort is spotless. We stayed in room 906, second building behind the stage and we were close to everything. The room was nice... More

Where do I start? Like most people I read trip advisor reviews of this hotel after I booked but before I went! I was SCARED. There were so many bad reviews of this hotel... From my experience none of them were true! The Riu was everything you could want from a weeks all inclusive in the sun for a decent... More

We had a great time! The staff were so friendly, the resort and rooms clean. One thing I have to mention is just how hard the staff work, some of them are there all day every day entertaining the guests from morning to evening. You could join in all the activities if you want or just sit quietly, there are... More
