Okay, so before i went on my trip to the RIU Bachata, i went on this site and was very disappointed, because i thought that my holiday would SUCK! Most of the Reviews I read were bad.
I had a fantastic time!! time of my life!! I went with my family. My siblings and i are in our 20s. Every night we met fantastic people and partied all night at the pacha (the disco) and then went to the 24/h bar every night haha it was a blast. We got to meet new people every night and became really good friends with people. Now for us kids we had a BLAST, but my parents just thought that the vacation was mehh. So that means that this resort is really only for young people that are looking to party and have a good time.
Now when i went it rained a LOT . just because of the rainy season.. so plan not to go in the rainy season..
Ok and the beach was not your typical WHITE SAND BEACH ok . it was ok but not anything to be memorized over. SO if you are looking to go on a vacation with an incredible beach, puerto plata is not the place for you. But for me i thought it was GREAT!! i loved the people, the drinks, workers and most of all spending time with my family.
Oh and if you want a cheap massage, go to the shacks off of the beach and you can get a good CHEAP massage, 30$ for an hour and it was great!!!
PS: only eat food that you are familiar with, dont eat any seafoods and mystery meat.
