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

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

My husband and I stayed here for a month. After getting to know the city and seeing other hotels (and prices) we were even more thrilled with Hotel Alegria. It is clean, safe, has a friendly staff, and conveniently located in 10 min walking distance to city centre and one block from the grocery. With it set back off the... More

An air conditioned room for 40 USD, practically on the beach! You can't beat it. Granted, the water comes right up to the beach access at high tide, but we never had any trouble getting to the beach by way of the hotel next door. Another reviewer mentions a gym. Well, that is a very generous description. They have a... More

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The Whirlpool on the roof was awesome. Having the supermercado next door worked out great. We had coffee every morning with Claudia at her cafe. The hotel was near enough to walk to town but far enough to be quiet. We would definitely stay there again if we visit... More

We were amazed to discover a hotel so close to a popular, beautiful beach with rooms at such a low price. While this is not a resort located directly on the beach, it is close enough so that many of the rooms have a view of the water. There is a short walk down a private path to a quiet,... More
