On the 16th of June, me and my partner arrived on one of the three coach loads of people at Riu Bachata but through what must have been witchcraft, we were all checked in and within minutes on our way to the room.

Price wise the Merengue is usually cheaper. We've stayed there 3 times and always wondered how good the neighbouring Bachata was. Most of the facilities are shared, the... More

Beautiful hotel. The grounds and hotel room were immaculate. The wait staff and bar tenders (Antonio and Tulie, in particular) made our visit even more enjoyable. The activities staff were energetic, enthusiastic and were one of the highlights of our trip. GiGe, Spaghetti, Scooby, DeDe, Tyson, Sexy Belly....we miss you already.
