“Fantastic Charm!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Hotel Albachiara is a gem! We stayed for 10 days and we enjoyed every minute there. From our first contact thru email with Mr. Alex Guzman to our final farewells, we were treated royally. Hospitality reigns supreme here and we hope to return. Mr. Guzman arranged for a taxi from AZS to the hotel which worked out perfectly. We enjoyed having daily breakfast, which is included, on the balcony overlooking the activity and the sea. Fresh eggs made your way and many other additions to chose from. The grounds and pool were kept spotlessly clean. The attention to detail of the landscape and lawn was amazing. Housekeeping staff was always smiling and did a great job keeping our room in good order. Maintenance of the hotel is kept up and the hotel is in great shape. Having the full kitchen was super, one day we crossed the road and bought fresh-caught that day Red Snapper which the fishermen filleted for us and we went home and cooked it up, yum. We really liked the central location of the hotel as we did not rent a car or a scooter, merely walked everywhere, including some of the best restaurants in LT.
The reception staff was friendly and helpful. Whatever we asked for was delivered right away. Since Spanish is LT's language and since we don't speak Spanish, sign language became quite useful. Thank you to Josephine, Alex, Mauritza and Angelica. You made our stay beautiful. We will tell all of our friends and we hope to return soon. Feliz Navidad to everyone at Hotel Albachiara.

This was our first time to the Dominican Republic and we were thrilled with the choice of hotel as well. Had a wonderful time everyone was nice and it was easy to relax here. The room was huge and the beach was just across the road. The food was great, different every night and the pool is large and never got too busy. We did have a massage on the beach for a treat can recommend. Walk into the town isn't far and you have a good few cafes and bakeries to stop for a drink. We enjoyed the chilled feel here and would come again.

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
