Our Opinion

The nicest of the 3 Riu resorts in the area, the Riu Bachata is also the newest of them. Probably not a 5 star as some operators may rate it, more along the lines of a 4.5 star. The beach here is a little narrow but nice and swimable. Like most Riu's the food and service are great. Definitely a good choice for couples, singles and families looking for fun filled Puerto Plata vacation.

Can't Believe It Took Me So Long, To Visit This Beautiful Country

This review is nearly 18 months late as I travelled in May 2016. There is so much to say and although it has been a long time, I still feel as passionate about the holiday now, as I did then and it is a good job, I had made extensive notes.Originally, the Dominican Republic was not my first choice of holiday as it was meant to be Jamaica but it didn’t come off, so after a lot of searching and consideration, I decided to go somewhere I hadn't been before.The Caribbean Islands I have been to, have their own unique marks and are beautiful in their own way but I was in for a pleasant surprise with the Dominican Republic. I had heard a lot about it, but was not expecting the fantastic holiday I ended up having. I had booked a 2 week holiday but tried within a couple of days of being there, tried to book a 3rd week. Unfortunately, the logistics of trying to do this from there, was more difficult than I anticipated and after consulting the hotel and travel agents, I decided to let it go and just enjoy my 2 weeks.I don’t want to spoil this for anyone thinking of visiting the RIU Bachata so, DON’T READ ANY FURTHER IF YOU JUST WANT TO GO AND EXPERIENCE THIS COUNTRY FOR YOURSELF BECAUSE I MIGHT GIVE TOO MUCH AWAY..The RIU Bachata is situated on a huge hotel complex so the rooms aren’t in the main hotel block but around it, which is great. It shares the site with the RIU Merengue and are far enough apart so as not to interfere with each other. The grounds are stunning, well kept, and has easy access all round. It is also wheelchair, pushchair and disabled friendly. There are lovely views to the hills and it has a great viewing point for the docking cruise ships which come by often. It is great waving to the people on the cruise ships as they start leaving on their journey.HOTEL RECEPTION/CHECK-INThe hotel was really nice and it is also kept very clean. Check-in was quick and easy and your luggage is given a sticker with a number for delivery to the correct room. You are given an envelope which contains a towel card, safe lock and room key. The staff at the hotel are fabulous and the service all round is amazing. There is free internet access in the reception area and just outside, but you need to pay for it in your room. There are toilets situated in Reception on the way to the dining room and just before going into the dining room, hand gel is provided for you to use. In the mornings before breakfast, large coffee and I think teapots are placed in Reception so you can have an early brew whilst waiting for the dining room to be opened. A Recycling Box in placed in Reception where you can put items you don’t need anymore but can also get items you have run out of, if they have it. Reception will provide you with extra water so you can walk around the grounds without the fear of becoming dehydrated. Sadly, smoking is still allowed in the reception area which I assume is because the area is wide open and not enclosed at all, but you can still smell the smoke.MY ROOMI tend to travel a lot on my own but never specify where my room should be for example that, I should have a room facing the beach, the pool etc…because so far, all my rooms have worked out well. However, the room I had at the Bachata, yielded a lovely surprise for me. I was tucked away in one of the furthest corners of the site (I’d ask for this room again) so it meant I wasn’t disturbed at night by anything, including the noise of late night revellers. The best bit of it though is, this room allowed me to have the full view of the docking cruise ships across the sea, through one window without leaving the room, but as I was on a corner, I had the view of the sea the other way, whilst sitting on my ground floor patio.Really good safe. Lock it and take the key with you.Large umbrellas provided in each room as when it rains, it rains; took it with me one time.Spacious room for one person, quiet, bright and very clean but maybe cleaned a little bit too often. The room had a flat screen TV, clock radio, comfortable bed with liner, loads of drawer space, numerous wardrobe hangers, enough sockets, excellent AC, mosquito screens, all working lights, extendable clothes line on the patio, good sized bathroom and my favourite, the mini bar. I have to say that in all my years of travelling, this was the best stocked mini bar I’ve ever seen but alas, it was too much for me on my own. The bar actually had 4 large 1L bottles of dispense your own liquor such as brandy/rum etc…and that was separate and over the well stocked mini bar, below. At your Welcome Meeting, they will tell you that your room bar is absolutely free of charge. A large ice bucket is also provided for you to collect ice for your room.FOOD AND DRINKThere was no tea or coffee facility provided in the room but it is not necessary as around the whole hotel site tea and coffee are easily obtained without asking for them. The Maracuya Bar is always ready for coffee/teas in the morning as well as in Reception as mentioned before. Also from around 11.00am, you can help yourself to all types of teas and coffee at the side of the Bikini Bar. On the counter of the Bikini Bar they have glasses of peanuts that you can help yourself to as well.I can’t talk enough about the food and drink, as it was amazing and there was just so much of everything that you cannot starve. I can’t begin to list how many types of food they have as the list would be extensive, I will however, recommend a few things but it is a personal choice. When it comes down to it, everyone has to make their own decisions about what they eat and drink. Try the A-La-Cartes. There Caribbean, Italian and Steak, all easily booked, delicious and no problems.Watch out for the beach BBQs (especially the BBQ chicken) and the Manager’s Pool Party – don’t miss themUse the swim up bars for your drinks as well, sit on the stools and watch all the action going on.On certain days, they will give out whole coconuts with the water but you can ask the gardeners to cut one down for you on other days. I used to give the guys 100 Pesos about £1.50 ish.In the huge Dining Room which also has plenty of seating on the veranda, I tried mashed green plantain, mashed pumpkin and a lot of things I hadn’t had before which were amazing. At breakfast, they have different smoothie machines so will make your smoothie in front of you and of course, there is all the normal stuff.Try some of the food from the giant beef stir fry.There is a 24hr bar and snack bar and at the Merengue, they serve late night snacks including fries.You can eat breakfast and lunch at either of the hotels but dinner must be at the hotel you are booked into.The cocktails are lovely and some to try are Bob Marley (Red, Gold & Green), Bananamama, Pot Purri, Pina Coladas or just ask them to make up something for you.ACTIVITIES/ENTERTAINMENTFantastic team including Spaghetti, Mini, Whitney and Mr Feelgood.Pool Aerobics, Table Tennis, Darts, Zumba, Horse Shoes, Water and Ground Volleyball, Bingo, Snooker, Pool, Casino, Late Night Disco, Caribbean Street Party (really good), Adult Pool games with water balloons, Adult Beach games with beer and running around a rock which is hilarious, Nightly Couples live music, Entertainment for the kids with the Entertainment Team, Awards Ceremony for the people who won the activities earlier in the day, Kids area and evening entertainment. The atmosphere was vibrant and had plenty of good music so there was no need for me to go outside of the complex for entertainment.The ‘must see’ of the entertainment is the Michael Jackson Show and all I can say is Michael is alive and kicking. I also got something else I wished for. I was actually at the complex on the 35th Anniversary of Bob Marley’s death which was 11th May 2016 but they weren’t aware of this. However, as soon as I mentioned this to someone in the Entertainment Team, they really honoured Bob and I felt proud of the music they played for me and my friends made. THE GROUNDSBeautiful, stunning, well maintained and plenty of cutlery/crockery/rubbish bins are provided to keep it this way.The grounds also provide a lovely view of the Sunrise and Sunset with no interruptions.Plenty of sun loungers but the ‘not reserving’ sunbed system as usual, is ignored.Easy access to the sea.Accessible toilet areas, showers, separate foot showers and changing rooms.There are Book Stations so you can read without remembering to take a book with you.The Towel Station is located near the Maracuya so once you hand them your card and they give you your towel, all you need to do is swap your towel with them. NEVER, just leave your towel because you will end up having to pay $20 US for it.A private smaller beach where you can see fish swimming is just at the other side as you walk round but expect some locals to come up to offer you cooked food, massages etc…Wildlife seen were, Swifts, Crabs, Fish, Humming Bird, Cockroaches, Grasshoppers (huge), Mosquitos (minimal bites received), Cockerels at the far end of the beach along with a couple of cats.FACILITIESYou can change English money at the hotel but not coins. There is a cashpoint outside of the hotel but it does not accept every card even if it has a Visa sign. If you don’t get your money out the first time, don’t try again just in case.There is a nearby pharmacy located on Caribbean Street which also has a few shops. This street is on the complex outside of the front of the hotel. At the Welcome Meeting, we were told that prices in the shops can be a little bit expensive but they can try and get a deal for you. You can buy a SIM Card at the pharmacy for 600 Pesos and purchase minutes too (bear in mind that this can change)Taxis are available if you need one.24hr Doctor.A well, equipped gym is literally outside the front of the hotel to the left.A laundry service is available.SADIf you venture outside of the hotel to see the real Dominican Republic, it is sad to see how many motorbike riders, don’t wear a helmet including parents carrying children.People needing basic things like plain trainers and food.A misunderstanding by some locals but not in a nasty way, that some tourists might not want to buy their stuff.As the economy there, is poorer than some places, it is hard to see someone struggling to sell their wares.The bitter/sweet thing for me is that the locals can’t use their own beaches during the week but at the weekend they can, so I was so glad to see them. Away from the above to do with tourists, it was sad to see people swearing and shouting at each other in such a beautiful place and on holiday. Even worse was the behaviour at the airport on our return journey. Unfortunately, not many counters were open at the airport and they were overwhelmed contributing to long queues. The Dominicans did their best to rectify this amidst the anger and we left on time.ADVICEWith advice, you can either take it or leave it.Alcohol and hot sun does not mix well so drink plenty of water and sit in the shade.There are lots of arguments about whether different types of skin need sunscreen on it so for adults, it is a personal choice. However, people with children under 2 years old need to speak to their GPs because kids need melanin to develop in their skin – so seek medical advice and don’t leave babies out in full sun.Re-hydrate your skin after lots of sun.Everybody knows that coconut water is good and refreshing but it is loaded with potassium so easy does it.Bring extra medication with you and at least 25% more baby stuff, just in case of delays to your flight.Remember to bring water floats especially the ones you can lie back on to use in the pools, snorkels, beach balls and goggles - I wish I did.Take American Dollars with you as it is easier to use especially if you are giving tips. Also, when you arrive at the airport, you have to pay a landing tax. The tax is $10 US going in and $20 US leaving. Believe it or not, they will not accept anything other than US dollars; they don’t even accept their own Pesos. Note also that their Bureau Exchange is so slow.When leaving food or drinks at a table or anywhere else, always cover it because the birds and flies will get it.Don’t carry umbrellas in your hand luggage as you will be stopped at the airport.Carry a travel iron if you think you may need one.Go to your Welcome Meeting because you might not know everything about the country you are in and the information given is always useful. Try to learn a few Spanish words, make friends and smile a lot.You may get a sales pitch from some of the locals or the travel agents so try to be polite even if you are not interested.Use common sense abroad as you would do in the UK.Please remember that you are in another person’s country and not at home. We need to have respect for other people’s cultures, as we wish other people to have for ours.Lastly. I would highly recommend the Dominican Republic to anyone who wants to have a wonderful Caribbean holiday. It has been nearly a year and a half since I last went but, the fabulous memories remain, just the same. Beautiful, wonderful place.

All in all, a lovely holiday

I stayed here a few weeks ago for 2 weeks. On the whole, our holiday was good and we did enjoy ourselves. The country itself is beautiful and we felt very welcomed. The hotel was ok. It wasn't awful - it wasn't 'wow'.... but I expected this. Room: Our room was lovely - yes, a little outdated but still nice and clean. The bed is huge, the optics were full (although didn't taste that great), our fridge was always refilled on time (if you want extra water go to reception).Beach / pool area:I wasn't expecting the beach to be that nice (after reading some negative reviews) - however, I was pleasantly surprised - I loved it. Lovely views as you walk along the path between the 2 resorts. The further up you walk, the nicer the beach is. Please don't worry about sun beds - there are soooo many! The pool areas are nice - we preferred to walk up to the quieter pools on the Merengue resort during the day, then head down to the swim-up bar (which is a lot livelier) later on in the day. Again, lots of sun beds. The pools could do with being a bit cleaner.Food and Drink:Ok, the food is nice but it does get repetitive after a while. Mexican night was my favourite by far! We ate at the Steakhouse and Caribbean restaurant - both were decent and made a difference to eating at the buffet. The booking system is a bit silly but honestly, it's not that bad. I became a bit unwell half way through our holiday - I wasn't too bad until the last 2-3 days. I'm guessing I picked up some sort of infection from the food and/or drink? It wasn't pleasant and lasted for about 7-10 days, so make sure you take some Imodium and rehydration sachets with you. When these stopped working, we went to the pharmacy who offered us a 2-day course of anti-bacterial tablets. I didn't feel comfortable taking them so held off. My doctor (at home) said I was right to not have taken these (just FYI).Staff: The hotel/bar staff are friendly and helpful - especially the guys in the main restaurant. We were there for Hurricane Irma, and the staff brought us breakfast and coffee during the storm - the hotel were amazing throughout to be honest.The Thomson rep 'Dindo' is a bit grumpy and isn't very approachable. He was literally nowhere to be seen during the pre-hurricane panic. In fact, Thomson were awful - no info provided at all. The entertainment team NEVER spoke to us - the same people tend to get selected for activities and to go on stage. A situation occurred which made both me and my partner feel very uncomfortable - we spotted one of the entertainment team secretly meeting a young girl (who was part of a group that spent a lot of the time with the entertainment team) late at night on the resort. I wouldn't have thought anything of it, but her band was blue (which indicates she's under 18), he was clearly not under 18 and met her in a secluded, dark spot on Caribbean street. We saw her soon after and she seemed fine, which made us feel better, but still.... I feel very uncomfortable about the whole thing. Honest advice: if you are willing to pay a bit extra for a nicer resort then do it. If you want a bargain, then I'm pretty sure you will still have a nice time at this hotel. However, I very much doubt we will return to this resort again.

Incredible staff and amazing destination

Visited this hotel from the 03/09/2017 to the 17/09/2017 and all I can say is me and my partner had the best first holiday. From arriving to leaving we had no problems, the weather was beautiful apart from the hurricane day and the staff were so helpful in giving information about what was happening. I've read many people moaning about queuing for the Italian, Caribbean and steak house now for the full two weeks we visited these restaurants 8 out the 14 nights we stayed at the hotel. The only restaurant they is a need to que is the steak house and you can leave a reservation for the 8pm sitting. The other restaurants you can simply just walk in. The entertainment staff, waiting, bar and maid staff all made our visit very welcoming and the holiday wouldn't have been special without them. All I can say is don't listen to the bad reviews as they are simply just picky they is plenty off food choice (and I'm a picky eater) the complex is very clean and the staff are incredible. Me and my partner have both stated we would happily return. Thank you RIU Bachata for a wonderful stay and allowing us to make memories and a good bunch of friends while we was there.

Avoid

Just got back from this hotel. How Thomson can say it's a 5* I really don't know more a 3*Our room was in block 1, broken wall socket, seal gone round the bath, screw holding in sink plug, broken toilet flush. We dont like soda or tonic so we gave drinks man a tip for diet Pepsi bear in mind you get 4 drinks per room every other day. Which I asked for every time he changed the drinks....it never happened! On the last 3 days we never got replenishment at all. Our so called maid finished her shift on Friday and wasn't back till Monday the cheeky woman told us this and asked for her tip! The only thing she did was change the towells make the bed and empty the bins didn't wash the floor or dust the sides. She or somebody used my perfume as well.The drinks are awful too strong and nasty. Thomson say international drinks ok if you like Gordon's booths or beefeater gin, Smirnoff vodka, no whiskey.As for the food pasta pizza veg you'll be ok the meat is mainly chicken of some description.Most of the staff are friendly if you give them a tip! Otherwise forget it.Do not go down Caribbean street omg if you don't go in they take a nasty defence with you they get very nasty and then turn their noses up, we all have to make a living but please. So we never went back, all I wanted to do was look and go back, they lost a sale.The hotel needs a total refurbishment, the swim up bar pool is nasty lots of dead insects floating around sand in the pool it wasn't cleaned in the 2 weeks we were there unless it was done overnight.One idiot which wasn't to do with the hotel was to do a summersalt and crack his head open so the pool had to be closed. The dining room was so hot like melting hot no a.c. just the ceiling fans.The food is very repetitive and gets boring after a while. If I had gone to this hotel for our 1st visit to Dominican I wouldn't have gone back, pay the extra and go to a better hotel.Would we go back to this hotel answer is no.

Wonderful Staff, Great Hotel, not so wonderful hurricane!

Right, the Riu Bachata...where to start?! We have just returned back from a 2 week holiday for the first 2 weeks of September.As soon as we landed, we paid $10 for our visas and it was easy to find the TUI reps. Little tip, people will try and take your cases to take them to the coaches. If you don't want to pay these people a tip, don't let them take your case.The transfer to the hotel was in a lovely airconditioned coach and the transfer took about 45minutes. We were greeted at the Riu Bachata with cocktails and smiles all round. I'll try and cover as many things in this review as possible, so here we go!The HotelThe hotel is lovely. Yes, it does look a little tired but i think that is just the Dominican Decor. The rooms are spacious and the beds are massive! Air con in our room was fantastic. My mums room it wasn't as good on arrival so she called down to reception and within minutes an engineer came and fixed it. The room is fully stocked with 4 optics. Gin, Brandy, Vodka and Whisky. The fridge below is refilled every other day with diet coke, tonic, soda water and bottled water. If you want more, just tip the refill guys or go down to reception. We tipped the room maid each day by leaving $1 on our pillow. Everyday the room was lovely and clean, fresh sheets and lovely little decorations with towels and flowers on the bed. All in all, the rooms are lovely. The main lobby is where you get wifi. You are given your wifi code on arrival and the wifi is good however can only get it in the lobby. The main shop is also in the lobby. TIP - The lobby shop is a complete rip off! If you want to buy things like cigarettes ect, either ask the rep to buy them, or get a taxi to the town. The toilets in the main lobby are spotlessly clean. So clean in fact that they clean them after each person has used the loo! The FoodThe food is vast! I mean there is so much to choose from you don't really know where to start! Themed nights are maybe three times a week? The food was always lovely and fresh and nothing was too much trouble. There is more than enough variety and anyone that says there isn't is a liar or incredibly fussy!! The best server we had was a guy called Orbrine, he was so helpful and lovely! The hotel has 3 a la carte restaurants. The Caribbean, the Italian and the Steak Restaurant. The Caribbean and the Italian are easy to get into. We didn't need to queue and was lovely for a change of scenery. The Steak Restaurant on the other hand, expect to queue. Is first come first serve and you will need to be there at 6pm to get seated at 6.30. The system is a bit weird but was worth the wait! Steak was lovely!! The StaffThe staff are what really make this place. Nothing is too much trouble. Honestly, if you needed anything, you just have to ask. Everyone is so happy and always willing to help. Tips are optional, however we tipped a few of the people who helped us the most. We were here to experience Hurricane Irma. The staff were impeccable. They brought us breakfast and lunch to our rooms, braving the storm just to bring us coffee. They were truly amazing. The best asset this hotel has. The animation team were also awesome but did seem to only make an effort with a few of the people. If you are pretty, young or willing to let them sit on your lap, they will be your best mate! If not, they don't really try and interact all that much. The girls were amazing and Co-Co the guy was also lovely. A few of the animation team were a little full on...seemed to think it was a show to see them all the time! They were so good with the children and always encouraging people to join in and the majority of the time weren't to full on.The PharmacyDo not be under any illusion that you won't get deli belly...no matter what you eat, or what you drink, you will get the poops! Go to the pharmacy just outside and the lady was fantastic. Prescribed us exactly what we need (Imodium won't cut it!) and we were fighting fit in a few days :) The Beach Now the beach is beautiful. Clean powdery sand, palm trees for shade and a calm ocean right at your door. It may look beautiful, but beware! There was multiple sea urchins! TIP - Take shoes you can wear in the water. One guy was stung by a sea urchin and it cost him over $200 just to see a doctor!Excursions (THE FUN BIT)Now, TIP - Dindo the rep will only really be interested in you if you want to book the excursions through him. The minute you book through someone else, he doesnt like you. We booked our excursions through Marysol Tours. They were beyond fantastic! Dindo slated their service saying they 'didnt abide by health and safety' and 'wouldnt give us a good service'. The trips he wanted us to book were nearly double what we paid with Marysol. Imagine how shocked we were when the guests that booked through TUI were on the same trips as us! The trips i would recommend are the Waterfalls (if you are terrified of heights, don't go. and expect a 35minute walk but its so totally worth it!) and the White Water Rafting. Both amazing! Paradise Island was good, but a bit boring after 15minutes and a long drive to get there.Save $20 per person to get out of the country! we didn't know this and spent all our money, then had a mission trying to get the ATM to work at the airport!All in all, this holiday was amazing. Staff were by far the best bit. The weather was beautiful (minus old Irma!!) and we though ally enjoyed ourselves. Would highly recommend!
