What's to Love

With all the choices included at Clubhotel Riu Bachata and its sister Clubhotels, you'll be spoiled for variety here. Even better, everything is connected by well-lit garden paths.

 

What We'd Change

The casino is on the smaller side and could be a little more exciting. Still, with enough new-found friends, no night is ever boring.

 

Why You Should Go

As the newest and the largest of the three, we think this is the best of the three Riu resorts. Live it up at the pool or bliss out on the beach.

Hotel Description

Riu Bachata: Cut Loose in All-Inclusive Style

If excitement and time to chill are high on your vacation wish list, Riu Bachata in Puerto Plata is for you. With lively pools and bars plus a mellow, peaceful beach, this all-inclusive resort offers the best of both worlds.

Riu Bachata shares a stretch of sunny Maimon Bay with two sister hotels: Riu Mambo and Riu Merenge. With Riu Bachata's all-inclusive deals, guests enjoy the amenities of the sister hotel's restaurants and bars. Another awesome feature of this resort is its well-known Caribbean Street promenade, a line of shops featuring an art gallery, clothing boutiques and craft shops.

After shopping, model your new bikini at one of Riu Bachata's two pools. The jammin' swim-up bar, Los Lirios, sets up a fun atmosphere. Soak in the Jacuzzi or lean back in the in-pool loungers while the kids whoop it up in the children's pool.

Speaking of kids, this is one of Puerto Plata's top places for family-friendly fun. At RiuLand, the kids' club, children are treated to supervised games in the pool and painting. There are daily kids' shows geared toward different age groups. When the kids are done hanging out at RiuLand, your family can pile into a pedalo, or paddle boat, for a little ocean exploration. Back on shore, there's time for a little snooze in the shade of the trees that line the tranquil beach.

When it's time to eat, head to Bahia de Maimon, a buffet restaurant that serves themed dinners twice a week. Or, make reservations for the poolside steakhouse, Maracuya. For more options, you can choose from a selection of restaurants in Riu Mambo and Riu Merenge.

For nightlife, try your luck at Riu Bachata's casino or attend the nightly shows, featuring music and other entertainment. You even get free entry to Pacha, the thumping disco. After dancing the night away, schedule a massage the next day at Renova Spa. What better way to balance out the partying than with soothing relaxation?
