We got this 5* All Inclusive at a bargain basement price so perhaps shouldn't have expected too much... 'Volunteer porters' at the airport are a pain - just say NO! Hotel... Booking in was easy, bags taken for us, given a free lock for the safe and it was clean Room - spacious and clean, aircon worked, bed hard(!) but...

Let me start by saying that the weather was bad, we only had two full days of sun in all the 2weeks, which is no fault of the hotel. As for the hotel, the staff are lovely and friendly on the whole, but let's get to the nitty gritty. We arrived on Sunday afternoon, first impressions were good, wifi was...

I have just returned from a weeks holiday here and we did have a lovely time although I didn't feel as if I could spend 2 weeks here. Felt very uneasy as soon as we came out of the airport as the porters are so desperate and needy.. fully take advantage of the fact you've just got off a long...

Flew with Thomson to Riu Bachata. Nice stay rooms where okay. Smelt quite damp, but apart from that everything worked. Good was repetitive especially for two weeks. Could only use Buffet for lunch. Nothing else opened unless you went to the other hotel and lunch was the same for two weeks. Hotel grounds were kept very clean all of the...

We have just returned from 3 weeks in the Hotel Bachata in Puerta Plata. After reading the various reviews on here, we always go with an open mind and are not normally disappointed. The Hotel Bachata was no exception and indeed one of the best RUI Hotels we have stayed in (our group had 4 rooms to compare). The rooms...

We visited the Bachata for two weeks in Nov 2016. Unfortunately the weather was very wet, which we were reliably informed is not the norm. This didn't help us though as we had a total of 3 days sunshine in 14 - but this review is NOT predicated on the fact the weather was abysmal. However, the fact remained it...

The hotel seems scruffy and in need of redecoration. There are too many loungers around the pool in a relatively small area, some are located where your view of the pool is obscured by a hedge screen. Bar staff in stage bar only seem to serve those who tip them and have an arrogance that is distasteful. Other bars were...
