5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Returning for the 4th year to the hotel, after spending the previous years at its "little brother" La Dolce Vita. I am always in awe at the great location an friendly service. I will continue coming back to this Paradise and hotel.

Lovely apartments which have sea views. We were in the 3 bedroom and the bedrooms were very spacious.

The best bits; the ultra comfortable bed, the views, the location on the one hand great as you are near everything and can walk everywhere. Great wardrobe space and very friendly staff. Great omelettes for breakfast. Great pool as well and not too busy.

Bits that could be changed; the bathrooms are a little dark and they could be a little more modern. The breakfast was good but perhaps a little more variety. The location also makes it quite noisy as it is in town, so if you are up for lively then good but not if you want tranquility although you didnt hear it in the bedrooms. Another issue the terraces are great but the lighting a bit dark. The living room is too small for such a huge terrace in case you wanted to sit inside.

Otherwise as always a great holiday in las terrenas!!

Room Tip: 3 bedrooms are spacious and have an upstairs room. Choose the ones at the back facing the sea!

Great Location and a well run Hotel. The staff all work very hard to keep the Hotel clean and make us feel welcome.

We stayed for 10 days in Feb 2013 and we were very sad to leave. We felt very much at home at this Hotel.

I am currently working in the DR and needed a place for my wife to spend some time. After looking at many places in Las Terrenas we settled on the Albachiara Hotel. The location is excellent, being in walking distance to many good restaurants and shopping. The beach is just across the street and you can buy fresh fish and shrimp at the local fishing village.

We have a 2 bedroom unit with a small kitchen and wonderful front porch overlooking the Caribbean. The unit is very clean and well stocked with everything that we have needed

The staff is very attentive to my wife to make sure she feels comfortable and save. Josephine, the manager is always ready with a smile, to help in any way. I highly recommend the Albachiara

My husband and I stayed her for 10 days at the end of January. The hotel is lovely and clean. I swam every morning in the pool which at 7:30 I always had all to myself. We had a ground floor apartment which was quite spacious.The bedroom has enormous floor to ceiling cupboards at one end, a safe, a TV, a King sized bed, ceiling fan, and air-conditioning. The kitchen is equipped with a 4 burner propane stove, a good-sized fridge, pots, pans, cooking utensils and dishes for 4 people.There is a large bottle of water with a hand pump. The best part of the apartment was the front porch which had 2 large armchairs , a table, and a coffee table. I just loved sitting reading or listening to music on the porch.
We took the breakfast plan. The breakfast room is lovely ( on second floor above the lobby) with a view of the ocean. They always had a good selection of fresh fruit and excellent French style crusty bread. There is always someone ready to do your eggs any style.
The location of the hotel is a plus. It is outside the town proper but an easy walk to many restaurants, grocery stores, bank machines and of course more tourist souvenir shops than anyone ever needs.
The owners and the manager ( Alex Guzman) are multilingual. It of course helps to speak Spanish, but you can certainly get by in English, Italian, or French.

Room Tip: We toured a second floor apartment which is in on two levels with two full bathrooms and would be go...

My wife and I stayed at Albachiara in late January for 10 days. The hotel is clean, the staff friendly and the location lovely. The price per night was reasonable for the location. Those are the "Pluses." The minuses are the result of the "atmosphere" that resulted from other "guests" on the property. Las Terrenas seems to attract a type of men who are in search of young female companionship. Listening to arguments about price for services at 2:00 in the morning is somewhat beyond the pale. Several of the apartments in the hotel appeared to be occupied by these groups. Losing sleep to these folks was not what we had hoped for in this lovely vacation spot. We will most likely return to Las Terrenas but, with this experience in mind, not to Albachiara.
