“Family Holiday”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Travelled with 4 adults and 2 children

Pros
Steak House Excellent
Very clean public areas
Overall Main restaurant good varied selection
Good Weather
Clean rooms
Clean pool
No hassle around the pool for entertainments etc..

To be considered
Italian Restaurant selection not to our liking
Small room - 2 adults 2 children only two queen size beds provided
No air Con in main areas (restaurant/reception)
Soft drinks often flat
Bees everywhere
No slides

We had two of the pool towels stolen on the last day the hotel staff were understanding but poor practice by fellow guests !!

I stayed at the riu bachata from the 4th till the 18th of August and it was amazing the staff were friendly and polite and made you feel welcome but as much as the entertainment team were good they were a bit rude a times and looked as if they didn't want to be there but that didn't ruin anything. The rooms were good but you don't need them to be perfect as you don't go away and stay in a room everyday,the shows were brilliant although there was 2 that I found not good which was the magic show the things he don't with the animals at the end I felt was cruel and another shows where he's putting needle through his cheeks and stepping on nails I felt wasn't a good example for kids but you can always skip them shows and do something else so it wasn't a real big problem. The restaurant staff were outstanding they were always checking if your okay and making sure everything's perfect. The riu Bachata add little extras that are not advertised like a person going round by the pool called mr drinking drinking and you could get any drinks from him and people going around with ice cream you could get and people didn't complain because one week they didn't do it but it's just a little extra they do it's not advertised so there was no need to complain and one last thing I found disappointing was club pacha you had to pay for your drinks but it still was good but I thought that would be counted as all inclusive as well but other than that it was amazing definitely will go back and I recommend it to All ages

What can I say? Absolutely fantastic, don't have any bad negatives to say. I came here for two weeks with my family and there was plenty to do. Lots of trips on offer or if you wanted to stay in the hotel for the day there was plenty to do. The staff are incredibly friendly, warm and kind. They work extremely hard to make this place so incredibly. From the maids to the fantastic entertainment team. It's perfect for families and couples. Beach is right by the hotel. Definately was the best holiday I've ever had. So much so that I'm looking into going again within the next two years!

1st the hotel has no AC anywhere not even at the dinner rooms so imagine eating and sweating at the same time i felt sorry for the employees there that had to work with long sleeved shirts and there's no elevators,2nd the ac didn't work in my room so i had to change my room on the 1st night, they turn off the ac like around 5am so ppl wake up early i think :(.3rd if u want a queen bed u cant get it all u will get is 2 full beds put together as a queen, which it sucks because u can fall through the middle. the food wast that good the only day the food was good was at the italian restaurant, the drinks sucks they need to improve that, they charge for wifi and if you make calls inside the dominican republic they charge u too.. WHAT IS THAT??.. and you get charged for the drinks at the club too which it has a funky smell. and one last thing they need to improve the entertainment of the hotel, at 10pm the hotels get boring without music or anything to do. other than that the service from the employees was great everyone was very polite and very nice all the time. if they fix all that it can be a great hotel just as good as the riu from punta cana

Room Tip: the last room is better by the time u get there u loose the pound from the food and is quieter

We stayed at the RIU Bachata from 28th July till 11th August... The hotel was wonderful...from the moment we got there the check in was swift, the hotel itself was lovely and spotlessly clean!There was always plenty of food to choose from and drinks were great too...would recommend!
