Playabachata Resort - All Inclusive

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

First of all, the first day of my stay during a hot night the light and water service went off which was really horrible staying like that the whole night

Staff was very friendly, the food variety was excellent and pool was big

First of all I want to say that they are advertising the boutique hotel to sell you the popular hotel rooms, so you see pictures of both hotels, Playabachata and Senator all together without knowing that they are 2 different category hotelsI. I had to do an upgrade and spend a lot more money in order to enjoy the facilities I saw on line. I like the Senator hotel, that is the newest hotel facilities in Puerto Plata and has potencial to be a great hotel but they are not totally done, the spa is not yet opened, the service is very poor at the restaurants, the food takes forever to come, and the buffet has good variety but the food is exposed for hours and the flies are around constantly. They only have 3 a la carte restaurants opened and you can only make reservations from 9 to 10am otherwise you are out. Also, nobody speaks english there. Another aspect that really bother me was that a great number of locals book hotel rooms on the weekends and they make parties on the pool area in the afternoons where people from the popular Playabachata Hotel and Senator Hotel ( boutique hotel ) get on the pool to play, so I literally saw around 80 to 100 people, mostly drunk, screaming and throwing water ballons at each other. That was scary, I didn’t want to stay there and I believe that for a boutique hotel that wants to sell the image of a five stars, that really goes against it. The beach is beautiful, they have all kinds of water sports and the staff there is very helpful.

Liked the clean walkways. Disliked the old keyed system. Anyone can make copies of room key and return for another stay and burglarize rooms / safes in which they have made keys. Food was minimal choice and the same wvery day.

Beachfront and the food. Personnel is efficiently trained. Room is very clean and lobby people are so good. Maria, Holguin, etc.

The resort and staff were excellent! We couldn't ask for a better staff and accommodations. The only issue we had was that the city seems to burn garbage regularly late in the night so each day you wake to a smokey smell that dissipates by 9:00 am. Not the resorts fault but does take a bit away from the experience.

The grounds were beautiful. My room was full of roaches

What I loved: The grounds were beautiful.. The staff were friendly. The beach and pool were really nice. Room was a nice size and TV had many channels which was awesome. What I didn't love: The food was average at best. The "reservation only" restaurants were not very good and would run out of spots quickly. The rooms need updating but certainly not bad. A minor gripe would be my room was in the furthest part of the resort which made my walk to the beach about 10 minutes. The worst thing was the Wifi… They advertise Wifi "in public areas" but it turns out that it was only available in the smaller reception area away from the rooms. If you are looking to get away from technology then this won't be an issue but if you need to stay in contact then this will be a problem. I complained several times about this but nothing was done about it.

Friendly staff, and Beautifully kept grounds.. Unbeatable price! I would say for the price, It was amazing.

Beds and pillows are not overly comfortable, Rooms could use updates. Grounds are beautiful, views are beautiful, staff was more than excellent, food was average to above average. Beach was great.

Nice hotel close to the beach and nice trees. Massages available close to the beach with fresh air.

Excellent hotel, wish the room was a bit cleaner. Great kids club staffs!

Staff at resort was very friendly and super helpful. Nice choice of food and drinks and entertainment very enjoyable

poor selection of food had to wait on road till 3 pm check in time rooms in poor condition would NEVER recommend this resort,has changed drastically since being " Riu Merengue. Awful!

Great experience. Great staff and very friendly. Good entertainment. Excellent food. Hotel needs a little updating.
