Everywhere you see staff with a smile :) the food in the main restaurant was good with a variety of choices each day. The swimming pool area is just brilliant and huge and the life guards will...

Just back from a two week stay here and it was above our expectations. People that expect 5 star for under a grand for two weeks are dreaming, you would pay £300 a night hotel only for that. The star ratings here are against other hotels locally. The check-in was slick with keys, safe key and towel cards presented as... More

Read all comments the truth is... More

The pool areas were spacious and relaxing , lots of sun loungers with plenty shaded areas if... More

Returned from a visit to the club Riu Bachata the hotel was okay but did not rate the 4 plus rating in the Thompson brochure. The food at the bachata did tend toward repetitive but there was always something new and I never got bored on what was on offer. On arrival the check in was very fast and efficient... More

Never a 5* more like a 3.5.Very clean and staff brilliant but in need of modernisation.Food was the same nearly everyday but some theme nights broke the monotony.Entertainment was also poor ( with one night being a man eating lightbulbs) not very good in front of children I suspect ?.The rooms and grounds were spotlessly cleaned everyday and the Thomson...

After a disappointing flight on the new Thompson Dreamliner, we arrived at the Riu hotel & were shown to our room, only to find that the air conditioning was not working, we informed the rep "Sylvia" & the hotel front desk who said it would be sorted out, the next day we were told the A/C was fixed & I...

Just returned from a week in Puerto Plata. We booked a late minute deal at the Riu Bachata. Overall it was a lovely hotel, nice spacious rooms, extremely clean and the staff were lovely! Entertainment was shocking, almost embarrassing for a 4plus* hotel. Only 90mins free wifi a day and it was too slow to use for anything more than... More
