I had the pleasure of staying at the Riu Bachata at the beginning of June with my mum, my sister and my fiancé, and we had a fantastic time. The hotel itself is well maintained, clean and welcoming. The beds are comfortable, there was plenty of space for all our belongings and a secure safe for valuables. You know the aircon is good when you wake up needing an extra blanket at night! My mum's room had a small issue with the aircon leaking on the first night and a bulb that blew, but the hotel rectified this as soon as it was raised and called us to follow up that everything was ok the same afternoon. The staff make the hotel what it is; from the cleaning staff to the entertainment team, no one was ever without a smile on their faces and more than happy to go out of their way to make you feel welcome. I can't praise them enough. The restaurant has plenty of variety - the only people who'd say otherwise are obviously picky! We didn't see any issues with flies or the like, and everything was always fresh and tasty. We tried both the Italian and Steak restaurants, both of which were very good. There's plenty to do in the hotel if you're so inclined; the entertainment team are a force to be reckoned with! I have no idea how they've got so much energy. I'd recommended seeing the Africa show and attending one of their beach parties. We did all our excursions through a company called Marysol Tours - they were far cheaper than Thomson or other companies - and were excellent. I'd highly recommended seeking them out if you're thinking of visiting this beautiful country. We'll definitely be coming again!More
I have just returned from a two week holiday at the riu bachata with friends. I last visited the Riu Bachata 13 years ago with my late husband and it was like walking into a time warp. After all this time I was worried I would be disappointed but no. The only difference was the gardens were more mature. The staff were still as amazing and hotel was spotless being kept clean by an army of cleaners and gardeners. It was even the same rep! We enjoyed the food and found plenty of choice yes there was pizza and burgers but they were excellent, besides plenty of fresh salads and vegetables, fish, meat etc, together with fresh fruit, deserts and ice cream. The speciality restaurants were excellent. The waiters were always around topping up water and knew which drinks we liked. Our last night was a bit disappointing as our waiter seemed to be more interested in cultivating the new arrivals than taking care of us but our faith was restored the following day when the restaurant was opened to allow us to get a quick meal before leaving the hotel and the waiter Tejeda couldn't do enough even though he knew we were leaving. Our room in block 5 was fine and there was plenty of storage. We did have a problem with our air conditioning on arrival but this was dealt with although it took a couple of days but the reception staff were always on the phone to check how things were. We loved all the little treats, the meals prepared by the pool, jerk chicken, burritos and the BBQ on the beach. Some days cocktails were prepared by the pool and other evenings we would be offered one on our way into dinner. This all added to making our holiday feel special. The animation team were very hard working and although we did not take part in the activities many people did. They had a different show every night some to our taste others not. All in all it was a wonderful holiday and I would go back again tomorrow. My friends and I said it was the only hotel holiday we had been on which we wanted to stay on for longer.More
Best thing about the hotel was the room.. Was on the top floor but people on the bottom floor said their rooms were damp!!..food was terrible !.. Ended up just eating Pizza and chips for the whole time...the locals come in every weekend and take over.. And the place doesn't feel safe..Not far outside the hotel grounds lays the dump!!.. And there are a lot of people crawling all over it!..very sad to see...If you haven't booked it all ready would reckon mend you to go somewhere else!!..More

My husband and I got married on the cliff at Riu Bachata and it was amazing! We had about 35 guests attend and it was a fun filled week. The hotel is kept clean for the most part, very nice staff - especially the reception. From the first day that we arrived, to the last, we were treated amazingly. The receptionists knew exactly all who were there for the wedding and extremely organized which was so nice as it added so much relaxation to my pre-wedding planning and trying to find all of my friends and family on the resort. The hotel itself is average/good. There are some things that need to be worked on to make it a great stay. If you are not extremely picky, it is a great hotel. The a la carte's need to be worked on with better options/plates and more flavour as most of my guests found them bland/small portions and poor dessert options. The buffet is decent, we found ourselves trying the a la carte's and then making our way to the buffet and unfortunately most people we spoke with did the same. Hoping that after the renovations this fall/winter that they take note and this can be resolved for future guests. The pools were very nice and the beach was well kept - the only thing guests need to know is that the bachata side is full of rock, so if you wish to swim - you need to walk down to the merengue side for the beach to swim. Otherwise, it was nice and feels a little secluded and no beach vendors which is definitely a nice thing about that beach. If anyone is getting married in the future - Maria is your girl! She helped me plan our amazing wedding and knows so much, but make sure your paperwork is in order and translated properly! My guests and I other than the food, had a great time and we made a lot of memories at this resort, it is great for families!More
