5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were a bit worried about visiting this hotel after reading all the bad reviews but there was no need to worry, it was fantastic and we had an amazing time. It was our first time to the Dominican and we stayed two weeks in August, a party of six. The coach trip took about 40 minutes and the check... More

Lovely and clean had towel art most days. Fridge filled up every two days and left a $ underneath diet coke... More

Here is some feedback from my trip to Rio Bachata. I'm hoping it will help you make an informed decision, depending on what's important to you. Overall, this hotel is barely a 4 star, and only thanks to rooms/beach. - Overall hotel grounds: beautiful and well maintained. WiFi is only available in the lobby, it's included and free, though slow.... More

Hello, I am writing a review to say my experience to who ever is going to Riu bachata. You will definitely need water shoes for the ocean because it is rocky, and the feeling of the corals and seaweed is not very pleasing. Bring a plastic cup or water bottle to refill your own drinks because you have access to... More

Just spent a week here with my girlfriend. Was a good/average holiday. Pros: amazing weather, lots of drinks served by lovely bar staff, animation team were good, beach was close by and rooms were very clean and spacious. Cons: food wasn't great with very little variety, struggled booking into any restaurants as was far too early to stand a chance... More

We were slightly worried about visiting after reading all bad reviews but my word it was fabulous. The grounds and views are simply stunning, watching the sun rise on the beach was amazing. It was great to experience watching the cruise ships docking. The food was fine with plenty of choice for everyones tastes. The beach and pools were fabulous... More

We visited for two weeks of glorious sunshine. The transfer was excellent. Check in quick and friendly. The room was spacious with an outdoor area. Cleaned daily to a very high standard. The minibar was welcome and restocked every two days. There was plenty of choices for food for breakfast, lunch and evening meal. The grounds are kept immaculate as... More

The Bachata and its sister hotel the Merengue are located a few miles from Peurto Plata town on a lovely stretch of the coast. I can't really fault this resort - it is exactly as I expected having stayed in Riu resorts previously in Mexico and Cuba. The staff work exceptionally hard to please the guests and keep it clean...

My boyfriend had been here and the hotel next door 3 times prior to our visit. After begging and pleading me to go, I finally said yes. And I'm glad I did. I would have given the hotel 5* but there are a few personal reasons as to why I didn't give it...but this is just my opinion. The hotel... More

We visited this hotel for our first experience of the Caribbean and WOW we weren’t disappointed. Our trip was for 2 weeks in August. The journey from the airport is only 35-40 minutes and the coaches were very comfortable and clean. On arrival at the hotel we were greeted with fresh juice and a friendly smile. The check in process... More
