This was our first visit to the Riu Bachata and it was a amazing time! We were in a group of 12 and they would always put us together for dinner. You don't have to make reservations for the special restaurants but line up first come first in, being a group they let 1 person stand in line and hold the spot for a group of 12. The rooms were very nice and clean, the maids are friendly as all staff are. Now at the pool and bar area that was a blast! A big shout out to Salami-Chicken Legs and Peek-a-chew they will keep you playing games and having a blast! I enjoyed all the games(darts-washers-ring toss-beanbag toss) there was more games but these were what we played! the bar tenders were also very friendly! a shout out to Tullie he had to put up with all of us and remembered what we were drinking every day. The resort its self was so beautiful and the grounds are always being cleaned. I really have nothing to complain about, the food is amazing and the drinks were good and staff are very friendly! I would consider going back! I was tipping the gardeners as they get very little the maids do get a lot and I understood Kitchen split the tips! Tip the bartenders leave money in your fridge for that staff and tip your entertainers! I really have nothing else to say but enjoy this resort!More
I want to say I really enjoyed my whole week there, the pools were amazing the staff went over and beyond to make your stay great and get you into the activities that was going on, the food was soooo good no complaints, the grounds were very nice and well kept,the rooms are very clean,the beach was very nice you could have shade or sun the trees on the beach were very cool , we had fun as a group of 21 always something to do, I must say try the chocolate monkey drinks yummy :) the pool areas were so clean as the pool,it's nice the way they have the vendors on a street just oust side the resort instead of bugging you on the beach, I recommend the buggy tour so much fun getting dirty tour and you MUST go on the jeep safari ask for Manny and mequl the driver, I have never laughed so hard in all my life they are the best tour guys,, from the start to the end we laughed so hard, ,first stop was to see the kids in school and have them hug me melted my heart, that's where we gave our school supplys and clothing and treats, manny says it encourages the kids to go to school :) then off to a beautiful beach to boogie board so much fun,you must have these guys on your tour just ask for them when you are booking it, we also stopped for a beautiful tasty lunch, we also went to a local house and seen so many things , we and learned a lot ,bought our coffee there $10 a bag from them , they also sell chocolate that you can grate up and put in your coffee sooo good its a big piece for $5,make sure you save some things as there are a few smaller kids there , I will never forget this trip it was so much fun :) PS Beginning of Feb is the best time awesome weather, there are also vendors where the cruise ships come in , beautiful sunsets that side at night ,when the tide goes out there is coral every where :)More

What a big change
Having been to this hotel 3 years ago, we enjoyed the 5 star riu and entertainment and good quality food. unfortunately it has now changed into a 18-30's resort, it has gone from a 5 star to a maximum 3 star the food is monotonous and most of the clientele were Canadian. The young Canadian have taken over from the Germans for being rude, arrogant and generally self-centred,. Some were permanently drunk and were loud and rude, the hotel security staff would only react to their behaviour if you made a complaint at reception. We had 2 weeks there and were glad to leave as fast as possible, never again.More
This was our 5th time to stay at this resort. The staff are very friendly. The rooms are kept very clean. They are getting out dated but they are clean so that is very important. The food is good and the beach seemed to be cleaned up since we were there last year. There is always something to do if you want to be active or a great place to relax. We will return next year for sure.More
A 1960's Butlins in the Sun
Booked a room for disabled people for three weeks but despite assurances no room available once my wife and I arrived. It was nearly five days before we got a supposed adapted room and even then it wasn't any good for someone like me who uses a wheelchair full-time,although we were assured the the room would be suitable before we booked, eight months in advance. Room wasn't very clean and bathroom nearly impossible for me to use. Kept getting punctures in my wheelchair and found shards of metal in my tyres picked up in the room. While we were there two English and eleven Canadians were deported for fighting and bad behaviour which is saying something for Dominican Republic. The Canadians were drinking, not out of glasses, but with funnels and tubes; getting so drunk that the couldn't stand. Saw children, probably around twelve years old or so, being served alcohol at the bar. Septic Tanks were open and one overflowed that was soon swamped with mosquitos and this is in the middle of the Zeka Virus area, it was disgusting. When one asked a question the staff couldn't understand English but understood very well when it was not a complaint. We will never go to a Riu Club again. We adore the Dominican Republic and love the people but this hotel and the way we were treated was disgusting. Next time nothing less than Riu Palace and even then we will have to have assurances in writing. Came home absolutely shattered after a holiday that we saved up for six years for.More
