If you have to chose between the Batchata or the Merengue. Go Batchata! You get to access all the amenities of Batchata if you're at the Merengue but it's not as modern and didn't seem as clean. My room was the cleanest of all the resorts I have stayed at. My only complaint about my room along with everyone else...

I wanted to treat my wife to a 5 star resort stay after a long and tiring year at work. We wanted to pick a new place and decided for the Dominican and this Bachata resort. We are both Cuba aficionados, we went there over 10 times so far. But wanted a new experience. So on December 26 at noon...

We spent one week at the Riu Bachata (mid-March). Victor welcomed us at the reception and we were given our keys immediately. We were lucky and found ourselves in the same room we had two years ago (Section 3 – ocean view). What a pleasant surprise. As requested, my mom was in the same section, but on a lower level....

Please don't listen to the bad reviews! We stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks over the Easter Holidays and had a great time. The hotel was lovely, set in a beautiful bay alongside 2 other Riu hotels, which you are welcome to visit and eat at. We stayed mainly on the beach, which is nice, and you don't need...

I have stayed in a number of RUI hotels and this was very typical but not the best. I found the Hotel a little tired, but it was clean and facilities were as expected. I personally found the hotel noisy, especially by the pool bar. Food was plentiful but very samish, we used the alternative restaurants every other day but...

My partner and I both ended up being ill after a couple of days arriving unfortunately and after speaking to some other guests they had been ill also with the same tummy issues. The food is very bland and repetitive, it's ok if you like burgers, pizzas. Tried to go to the steak restaurant on two consecutive nights but they...

My friend and I visited this resort for four nights back in march. It was such a nice environment! There was a red flags all the days we were there for the beach, and it rained, but we still had so much fun. Marco, a bartender was amazing! The staff tries hard to make sure you have a great time....

It's a nine hour flight from Manchester and $10 to enter the Dominican Republic and $20 to leave, forms to fill in on entry and departure so it's a bit of a pain but worth it....I think it's always better to know these things beforehand so no surprises. Also there is a tipping culture but don't let that put you...
