We spent a week at the Riu Bachata in the sunny Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. This resort was beautiful! We were welcomed right away with fresh orange juice in champagne glasses, and were helped to our accommodations. Our whole week was spent lounging, fishing, on excursions and awesome shows that went on every night! The main pool was surrounded by... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week in the middle of July, we booked it very last minute as we wanted a quick summer chill holiday and we got an exceptionally good deal. I have travelled a lot and prefer a more active kind of holiday, I am also a bit of a holiday snob so this is... More

Over all A very nice hotel which has two lovely beaches, a good pool scene and provided great excursions. Hotel The hotel surroundings are fairly well laid out. The thing that struck me most was that, although the hotel seemed to be quite full, the whole place seemed very quiet and peaceful, especially around the accommodation. The noisy area, of... More

My partner and I have just returned from two weeks at this hotel and had a truly fantastic time. Having read the abundance of negative reviews before we left I was somewhat dreading our stay, fearful of food poisoning and boredom and I am happy to report that that was far from the case. This review is my true honest... More

Overall we had a brilliant time at Hotel Riu Bachata for our 2 week stay. The staff are all very happy and welcoming and always working extremely hard- especially the cleaners. The pool was cleaned every morning and evening, loads of sunbeds and loads of shaded areas. The snack bar was great nearly as much variety as the main restaurant!... More

I honestly cannot stress enough how much you should ignore the bad reviews. I didn't have anything bad to stay about this place. I went in June with my mum, dad and best friend. Me and my best friend were 20 at the time we went, and it really does have something for everyone. There were things my mum and... More
