“Close in-town hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

I have stayed at this hotel twice. The location is terrific because you can walk to everything and you are in the heart of town. The beach is just across the street and very convenient. The pool is large and great for swimming or cooling off. I wasn't able to get the jacuzzi spa jets on but they have one of those. The rooms are large and sufficient for staying for a short or extended stay. They are high end units fully furnished. The hotel includes breakfast and that is upstairs with a great view of the ocean. The staff is very welcoming and helpful for anything you want or need. I highly recommend this property.

The place is gorgeous! The rooms are HUGE, with a beautiful kitchen and terrace over looking the pool. At night the pool changes color, and it's a beautiful site. The hotel is right across the turquoise beach, you can walk right down and into the water. The complementary breakfast is delicious. Ask for Josefina, the sweetest person on Earth, she'll tell you whe to shop, eat, and whe to go site seeing. If I'm ever in Las Terrenas again, this is where I'll be staying again!

An small but beautiful hotel with excellent accommodations, located just in across from the beautiful beach of Las Terrenas, in Samana. Large, sunny and comfortable apartments at reasonable rate. If you're ready to enjoy a nice vacation close to the ocean, Albachiara is the right place for you.

Room Tip: rooms facing north have the best view

We booked this hotel from their website http://www.albachiarahotel.com was not familiar with the area but it turned out great. Perfect location to get away with a special someone. On the beach, and beach was very clean and private. Everyone who worked at the hotel was great, special attention to every thing. Free breakfast was included. Very close to all the restaurants and bars of the area. Keep in mind this is a secluded area so the town was small, probably 10 restaurants and bars along the beach area. Food was great. Highly recommend. Will return.
We stayed on the ground floor and there were no noises to worry about

We've just returned from 16 days in the Dominican Republic - 6 of those nights were spent at the Hotel Alba - and we loved staying there! Having just spent 2 stressful nights in Santo Domingo, Hotel Alba was a welcome relief - visually, comfort level and location. How wonderful to see the beach directly across the street with strategically placed lounge chairs on the sand in front of the turquoise ocean. The hotel reception was welcoming - especially Josephine the manager. We had a wonderful King Suite with an ocean view in front of the fabulous pool - this looked beautiful both in the day and night. Loved the resident rabbit as well! The hotel is strategically located on 27 Febrero Street - walking distance to all of the great restaurants, car/quad rental place, art and clothing stores. And the morning breakfasts were delicious and filling. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay.

Room Tip: When you make your reservation ask for a room in the back with an ocean view.
