We went to Riu bachata for one week at the end of July 2014. We had two rooms- one for the parents, one for the children. One of the rooms was clean, smelled nice, and had no roaches or ants. On the other hand, the other room reeked of mold, had a number of roaches, and just had a bad energy to it. So we all ended up sleeping in one room and paying for two. The rooms were kept clean- not much too it. Clean towels every day, fresh flowers on the bed.
The pools are cool. We went to the quieter one, away from the bar.
The beach was great. It was very breezy the entire week which we are grateful for. Easy to find shade and sun loungers. There are a lot of rocks and seaweed in the water but still nice and you can go snorkeling very close to shore.
The food was boring and did not taste good. A lot of variety but no taste. The breakfast was the best!
The entertainment was great! Truly entertaining.
We went to paradise island which was FANTASTIC. Once in a lifetime experience. Highly recommend it!
Overall, my family had a great time. The hotel was "good enough". If the food was better, everyone would be much happier.
P.S. we did not get sick from the food.
