The high rating here on tripadvisor is surprising as the rooms weren't anything special, and the service we received left a lot to be desired. The morning guy Joseph was extremely friendly and courteous, but the evening lad and the owner ranged from unfriendly to rude in a number of interactions. Was very disappointed in the showers, as the pressure... More

The morning front desk clerk is Joseph. The gentleman speaks fluent English and is a wealth of information. If he does not have the answer for you... he will find out. The property is clean and a good value. The hotel does NOT take credit cards. We made reservations with Priceline and had a paid confirmation.... no we needed cash..... More

We appreciate the reviewer's positive comments on the service and value at Hotel Alegria. We do need to address a serious misstatement though. Our arrangements with Booking.com and Priceline never involve payment by the guest to the online booking agent, and both sites explain that payment will be made directly to the hotel in cash. We only take the 25%... More

Lets start with the good: The location: GREAT! Its a 5 minute walk to the beach shore and a 10 minute walk from the main beach restaurants/clubs at the center of Cabarete. A grocery store called Janet's is also a short 5 minute walk up the street. The Room: As stated in another review, its not a 5 start hotel/resort... More

I stayed here with a friend during Thanksgiving week 2014. We were going to grab small individual rooms w/ AC initially, but were easily talked into the 2BR apartment. Peter gave us a great price for our first night and an even better one when we decided to extend our stay for another week. Compared to other rooms in this... More

Hotel Alegria is a gem. Located in a great location ... only steps from the beach, supermarket (Janet's) and Center Cabarete. Restaurant on-site was very good and priced very well. Peter, the owner, greeted us upon our arrival and prior to arriving he was extremely helpful in answering my questions as this was our first holiday to the Dominican Republic.... More

My wife and I studied for two weeks in the Cabarete Language Institute. The Alegria is easy walking distance to the school and the price was great so we booked there. We had a great time. The hotel is on the opposite end of the spectrum from the gated all inclusive hotels we saw all over the city. We talked... More

What can I say about this marvelous place? I, like you, read the reviews and was tickled to find something so highly rated with such a minimal price tag. My only negative was that there was no air conditioning and the breeze just wouldn't enter my room. I got used to it, however if that's a deal breaker for you... More

AlegriaOwner, Owner at Hotel Alegria, responded to this review

Thanks for a nice review that captures what we offer. This July was historically hot and we had surplus demand for the 50% of our rooms with A/C. During a normal month roughly half the guests register for a room with just ceiling fan and save themselves $5 to $10 a night. We offer the choice as long as we're... More

...but a "little" far from the beach. I'd suggest this hotel! Hot water, walking distance from everything good, and a great staff (limited English). A bit more expensive than backpackers might pay but it's very good. Very close to the grocery store to buy drinking water and snacks.

Hotel Alegria is consistently top rated for our location. As the title of this review indicates we are "close to good stuff." We are located on Cabarete Bay beach with our own beach access. At times of the year the beach immediately in front of the hotel is reduced, but a 30 yard walk puts the guest on the strand... More
