My boyfriend and I had an absolutely wonderful time at the Riu Bachata! The beaches were beautiful, the room was perfect, the pool area was great, the food was amazing, and most of all, the resort staff was phenomenal! We loved the entertainers, especially Gigi, as well as the pool bartenders Wilken and Tulie, and the dining hall staff. During...

Here are some "secrets" to make your stay more enjoyable at this great resort! 1- WiFi is available in the lobby for 90 minutes a day free- one time a day use only whether you use all 90 minutes in one shot or not. HOWEVER...YOU CAN purchase a wiFi ticket in a machine at the front desk which will allow...

Booked ocean view rooms and were given rooms with the view of the bay with construction. Even after complaining they would not change the rooms. Food was so bland and had no variety. Same menu everyday for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Both A la carte restaurants sucked; specially the steak house. They change the one side pool restaurant into a...

Unclear under the "Terrible" rating what hotel these people stayed at. A four star it is not more like a 2.80 star. We suffered none of the complaints and woes listed under this category. The Hotel, yes, has a few issues: mattresses are uncomfortable and too small for an adult couple; the Italian and Steakhouse need help to bring it...

Well, as an addict to Trip Advisor prior to any trip I take, I was a little anxious prior to my first trip to Puerto Plata. And, for the most part, I had no reason to be about this resort. It is a beautiful property, but Riu needs to invest in its modernization to make it a more popular vacation...

We stayed at the Bachata in Feb. Found the service staff to be amazingly friendly. Rosario in in buffet was a bright star in our stay. Entertainment group, on the other hand was oblivious to us as guests, not returning smiles or holas. Shows were not very good. Rooms are very clean, beach is shaded. Food was good, not great,...
