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.
