This is a private resort - Riu only. It is labelled 5-star online, but is in fact a 4-star. Rooms small, but clean (cheap furniture - but this is Dominican Republic!). It is small enough, quiet but not "dead", safe and the grounds & backdrop lovely. My rating (1 - 5): room 3.5; bed 3.5; pool 4 (but get up...

Without the beautiful beach and the thousands of lovely matured palm trees, you'd be staying at an oversized crappy motel! The beautiful landscaping made up for everything.... If you like healthy dinning, the options are pretty good....the only thing is that the fly's are rampant in the outdoor buffet area The entertainment seriously sucks, and other than that, there's nothing...

We were a group of 15 people who were on resort from Feb. 11-18th, 2014. We were grouped together which was nice and we enjoyed ourselves. I can only speak to my experiences. Rooms: Our room was nice and appeared clean. It had a musty smell to it which wouldn't go away regardless of how long we left the door...

My first time at Riu Bachata, I must say everything was pretty excellent. I was very pleased with the how clean everything was. The food wasn't all that bad, and the service was very polite and friendly. One thing I must say is that a lot of people got sea irc-ants in their feet from swimming in the beach so...

This hotel is the best one we visited in Caribbean. Very clean, nice staff, great evening entertainment, good food, nice beach plus the price is more then friendly. You can use the services of two other Riu just next to this hotel. I definitely recommend to stay there and we will return there!
