Riu Bachata Hotel Puerto Plata Guest Reviews (9)
This is the worst place that I have ever been in! We had to wait until almost 5 pm for our room to be ready, and then when it was, there was no toilet paper, kleenex or trashbags. The air conditioning in the room worked only half of the time, the phone didn't work, and the hair dryer was hanging by a wire! The beach was trashy, a syringe and needle actually washed up on the shore! There were pimps hanging out at the main bar at night, trying to recruit people, including myself. I had to ask the bartender for help in NEVER book a room here! If I could have given this place negative stars I would.

About now? II Frustration, and aggravation in Riu Bachata, Puerto Plata. They shut the air conditioning (chiller system) down by midnight and restore it at 5:00 am, at day time it is just a little cold. They have no 1-800 numbers in their telephones to call outside the complex, I needed to call Orbitz in order to make a cancellation and be transferred to other hotel, I got trapped in there. Two mediocre restaurants, (Steak House and the Italian) same menu and same sides in both of them, Same thing at Merengue's Resort (two same restaurants) no choice. In the Italian I requested salmon, and they served other fish as a salmon fish. There is only one brand of red wine, because we didn't like it I requested a wine chart, I was told that I should go to the hotel store in order to buy the wine of my preference. However the buffet restaurant is, beautiful providing a good and great food variety. They are no serving liquor at the table in the recreations areas. Not hair conditioner in the bathroom. The safety box in the closet is mounted on the floor, means that you must to lay down or bend down in order to access your belonging. Not room service and only are providing 3 beers (in bottles) each other day The beach with few spots of sands and lots of rocks. The taxis drivers have their own agenda, you must meet their expectations ($) despite that I am the money man. It is a real shame, the hotel is very clean, well maintained, The view spectacular, the workers super nice, when I complained about the AC the manager offered to us no one, both two other rooms, but my wife have a hip replacement and is unable to climb the third or second floor.
