My brothers and I rented the two bed-room apartment for a week, and it was exactly what we had hoped for. It was cheap, convenient, had a friendly staff, was next to the beach, and had all the kitchen amenities so that we could cook for the week instead of going out. It felt more like a beach house than... More

This hotel is perfect. I wasn't sure how long I would be staying, but I was able to extend my stay and the owner kept me in the same room. There were no mosquitoes and I could sit on the balcony and star out at the ocean. It's within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. There is a... More

The countdown is on, in about two weeks we'll be going to the Alegria for the 3rd time in about a year! Love this place, it feels like home. Great location, great service, great price. If you want luxury this is most likely not your place, but if you want the homy cozy feeling of a small hotel where everyone... More

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

We did have a temporary problem with the water pressure during the two days this guest was with us and we made the repair necessary to correct the problem. We thought our response to a special request from the guest was sufficient, but we now learn he didn't agree. We pride ourselves on superior service, and we regret that we... 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

AlegriaOwner, Owner at Hotel Alegria, responded to this review

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
