Much needed vacation

With every hotel you have to take the good with the bad. With Riu it's mostly good a little bad. Food gets repetitive. Would love an authentic Dominican restaurant, after all that's where it's at, right?! All staff extremely friendly especially Ramon the food server. Rooms are nice however the bed was very uncomfortable. I would definitely stay there again. I highly recommend taking the Safari Tour!!! Best tour of my life!!!

Couples Trip

Overall the stay was very good. The pools, swim up bar, beach, and cleanliness were great! The italian restaurant was good but the steakhouse was closed 2 out of the 4 nights we were there which was disappointing. Entertainment in the evening was very good compared to other resorts i've stayed at (there was a Michael Jackson show, a magic show, and a dance show for 3 of the 4 nights i was there). You can also use the Riu Merengue pools and restaurants since it is one big property but im VERY happy we stayed at the bachetta. The bachata was where everyone was at and very entertaining (we walked over to the merengue to see how that one was and you could hear a pin drop at the pool). Overall I was pleased and especially for the price I would recommend this resort. Oh and a helpful hint there are shops that separate the 2 resorts .. always negotiate the price!

Excellent Value - Relaxing!

My boyfriend and I just spend a week at the Riu Bachata and had an amazing experience. In Summary: 1. The location/beach are amazingly beautiful. Clear, blue water and amazing mountain views on a private beach. No surfing and a little rocky, but perfect for what you'll need. There are a lot of trees on the beach, so while sunbathing is not difficult, you do have to be strategic when picking your spot. If you like the shade, you're very much in luck. 2. The hotel is EXTREMELY clean, and the staff is wonderful. 3. When the resort says it's open 24 hours, it is also including restaurants/bars that are located at the neighboring resort, Riu Meringue. However, don't be discouraged by that because it's completely walkable They're literally right next to each other. 4. If you're looking for a wild and crazy nightlife kind of place, this is not the resort for you. We had the most amazing, relaxing time. We drank, ate, went to the beach and the pool, went to the shows and live music, and were usually back on our balcony by 1am. Although a bar is open all night, there wasn't much going on over there, which was fine with us. The disco tech that's available here is a total joke. There were never more than 8 people in it when we checked. 5. The casino is a little sketchy. If you've been to Vegas, don't bother. 6. The food was very good. There were things that appeared multiple days on the buffet, but we never had any trouble finding delicious and different options. After all, you don't need to eat everything available on the buffet at every meal. There are also specialty restaurants where you can make dinner reservations that serve totally different meals the Caribbean and the Italian were excellent. The snack bars are exactly what they say they are. There may be a few basic pasta dishes available, but it's primarily fruit and American snacks, like hotdogs, hamburgers and nachos. Tasty though. 7. The touted "Caribbean Street" is overstated on the hotel's website. There are shops, but they carry mostly the same things and the cashiers do a bit of hassling/bargaining, which is annoying. There are sometimes street vendors there, too, who were much worse. We tended to avoid Caribbean Street when possible. 8. The entertainment consisted of some group activities throughout the day, a kids' performance after dinner (which we did not attend), a show at 9:30pm and then live music after that until midnight/1am - you can attend these events at both resorts. We had a great time at the shows. It's not broadway caliber entertainment by any means, but the dancers are very gifted and put a lot of work into the shows. There was also an "Ideal Couple" game show that was hilarious to watch. The live music is all in Spanish, but it was still fun and people were dancing. Cons: 1. The biggest problem with the beach is the amount of lounge chairs available. We were always able to find two, but had to search for 5-10 minutes a few times. The resort should invest in more chairs. The same problem persists at the pool, but worse. People get up insanely early - I'm talking at 6am - to put their towels on chairs to reserve them, even if they don't intend to sit in those chairs until late afternoon. That's incredibly annoying and something I think that the resort should address, but again, if you take a little time, there are chairs to be had. 2. The main breakfast buffet stops at 10am. There is breakfast available after that, but not with anything hot like eggs or pancakes. We felt that it should have at least been open until 10:30am. 3. The pools close at 7pm. This wasn't a deal breaker for us, but it would have been nice to have been able to go for a late swim.

Dining tip: In Hotel

Either bring a travel mug or buy one when you get here. The bartenders will fill anything up with drinks since it's all inclusive, but the cups provided by the resort are very small, so the mug will help keep your drinks cold and give you more time between fill ups.
