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

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

Recently visited the bachata this summer. The food was repeated most nights but I think that was its only downfall. The entertainment was basic and also repeated itself but that's what you paid for. The staff are very helpful and friendly, their English is fantastic too. Overall, it's a very clean and well kept hotel.
