The hotel is clean and the room was spacious and comfortable. The staff were friendly, especially in the dining room and the grounds were lovely. The pool area has plenty of loungers, but the best ones are usually gone early, saved by the pool attendants for the holidaymakers that they get friendly with. A bit annoying if you get there...

The wine came from a keg, and while I knew top shelf alcohol was not included I did not expect the quality to be so terrible. Beach, pool, and buildings were pretty. After this experience I will never stay at the Riu brand again.

Overall, the trip was good. Warm weather, pool, beach, who could ask for more, right? We go away every year for New Years, but this I'm afraid was my least favorite :-(. Staff/Check-in: Staff is very friendly and helpful. Check-in quick and uneventful. Most of the staff however speak little to no English. Thankfully my husband is fluent in Spanish,...

First the good: Hotel is spotless, lovely grounds and very good staff. The so -so: food is more than just edible, but is rather repetitive - one week of it is more than enough. As in every hot country I have ever been to, desserts are completely tasteless (jelly and ice cream good though). Main buffet is a bit of...

Generally speaking the overall experience is Good. The ressort is attached to the 2 Riu Merenghe that can be acess and where you can eat during the day (other than dinner). That give more alternative and action during our stay. Beach: orientation north/west, many palm trees create shadow. Not a sandy beach and some rock/coral. The right side of the...

We looked on this review before we travelled and were concerned in regards to the locals coming into the hotel at weekends, plus we couldnt speak Spanish. However, this wasnt a problem as all this talk was just fabrication, just like some of the conversations we had whilst we were there between 17th Nov-2nd Dec. We enjoyed our stay, all...

Just as wonderful the second time round. We first stayed here in November 2011 and returned 1-17th December 2013. Sad that there was just 1 original member of the Animation team but great to see so many familiar faces among the bar and waiting staff. Room was clean and comfortable, maid service was daily. Grounds very clean and well kept....

The management staff lacks manners and respect towards the guests. I was actually insulted by one of the public relations person and wonder if they are mean and irrespectful to other guests. I won't come back never ever again and will not recommend anyone this hotel. Lower staff seems to be unhappy, food is repetitive and if you want to...

We went to the Riu Bachata just after school started again for the fall. And thank goodness! On the weekends, it would get crowded, and the weekenders would hoard food and be unhygenic by letting their children pee on the side of the pool to avoid the hassle of using the toilet. Pros: The size or Riu Bachata is nice...

While it's certainly not in the category of a luxury resort (either in amenities or price), our family of 12, aged 16 mos to 67 yrs, had a lovely week! The property is beautiful and well maintained, the rooms are large enough to be comfortable for a family of four, and both the beach and pool have plenty of shade...
