We stayed at the Riu Bachata from September 22nd - October 6th 2013. This is our 7th visit to this hotel and as on all previous visits the facilities, service and overall standards were excellent, we were slightly concerned about our holiday after we had read previous reviews, but we did not experience any problems throughout the entire holiday.

When we travelled, 2 adults and 2 children, this hotel was bliss, very pleasant people, very well laid out, great service and choice, the food was good, a little samey though. Only downside was the weekends when locals were allowed into the complex and took over the place, so we did most of our excursions at weekends. But the room...

We were here in May 2013 for 3 nights. It was a really nice stay - it's certainly not 5 star but that's not why we chose this resort. The food was fine but nothing special, the drinks were good, and for the price it was a fantastic deal. The pool with swim up bar is really nice, but my...

We had looked into all the other reviews of this hotel and were torn on whether we should go or not. We ultimately decided to just bite the bullet and booked with them. We got there and our first room was not a king size bed which isn't their fault so we asked them for a king size room. The...
