Leaves a lot to be desired-

This was our 2nd time in Puerto Plata, 6th time in DR. We are an easygoing family who only wants sunshine, water, & a break in reality on our trips. We get it-you get what you pay for. Playabachata definitely rates at the bottom when comparing all the all-inclusive resorts we’ve visited. The pool: one pool, small, no swim up bar, ladders only to enter-tough for small kiddos, shoulder to shoulder people. In a week, we tried the main pool two days, then used only the “secret pool” at the Spa Resort next door. The “secret pool” was the saving grace. The food: little variety. “Specialty Restaurants” are converted lunch/snack areas. The rooms: we traveled as a family of 6- 2 parents, 3 children, and grandfather. In one room, our 5 yo slept between us in the 2-beds-pushed-together big bed. In the other room, 2 teenagers slept with their grandfather in the same situation. No beer in mini fridge, only Pepsi & water. You DO need an outlet converter and can purchase for $65 in gift shop. No WiFi in rooms in most of resort. No iron in room-front desk told my husband the resort only has one(!)-we eventually secured it. No dresser in teenagers/grandfather’s room-just a wicker desk. Two separate outlet covers fell off, exposing the internal outlet. Left cover on bathroom counter but housekeeping didn’t acknowledge. Entertainment: Michael Jackson night always fun. Dancers are fantastic. Man Universe is ridiculous. Couples Massage on beach was fantastic. DO NOT agree to “VIP breakfast” at the Senator to hear about vacation club option. The 90 minutes promised turned in to 4 hours. The accommodations there are beautiful, if you want to invest $$$. The sales “manager” Junior was arrogant, spoke down to me, and stated that saying no meant “I didn’t get it.” No buddy, I just don’t have $8-35,000 to invest. No means no. I think he realized he was a total jerk to me (the wife) & in a recovery attempt, asked a woman to take over. Yep, still no. We love the DR but won’t be returning to Playabachata.

wouldn't recommend Playabachata

Honestly?? I would not recommend this place, rooms outdated allover, foods; you will eat it if there is no other choices,the pool never clean, staff can care less. I booked it base on cheapcaribean, and because the picture of the place were beautiful, and it looked as a great place for a vacation, but too late I realize that the pictures on the website are for their other resort (Senator spa resort) so make sure that you are been send to the right resort before you pay for it. I didn't believe all the bad review for this place, but each of then are 100% true!! ;( , ohh and don't go there during the weekend, because all the locals are there, and it become a mad house. good luck, if you still want to go!!!

Fun Place to go to

This resort is a great place to go to if you don't go on the weekend. The weekend is full of locals and you can barely get a drink from the bar. I loved every other day except for the weekend. I feel like I lost 2 days of relaxation. But the rest of the week it was relaxing and fun. The entertainment was awesome as well as the food. Enjoyed my time and massages.

Wonderful place, wonderful time

I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at the hotel. The place was very clean and had beautiful landscaping. The resort has a huge scenic beach with plenty of space to relax. The pool was also great, clean and a nice place to hang out with a drink. Staff was very attentive, friendly and provided excellent service. I always felt welcomed and appreciated. I found this resort safe and secure. I had a wonderful vacation at PlayaBachta Resort.
