Riu Bachata, an all-inclusive, family-friendly hotel, offers great value. This reasonably priced beachfront property allows guests to lounge on the palm tree-laden beach and look out on the rolling green hills set against the Caribbean Sea.
The 610 guest rooms are modestly decorated and done in tropical décor. Each room comes with a balcony or terrace, bottom-shelf liquor and a flat-screen TV. There are two pools, a swim-up bar, a gym and a spa on site. The amenities at the neighboring sister hotel, Riu Merengue, are available for all guests and include tennis, volleyball, another pool option and water sports equipment for rent. An 18-hole golf course is also close by.
Caribbean cuisine and tropical drinks can be had at the on-site bars and restaurants. After dinner, guests can experience nightly entertainment such as live music, or take advantage of free admission to the dance club and casino. Kids' clubs and family-friendly entertainment keep the younger visitors busy. The hotel has a strict no “spring breakers” policy, ensuring it never gets overly rowdy or loud.
