“great hotel, location could be better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

stayed 1 week at this hotel with my husband and two small children. i would say the hotel is very good. the suites are spacious and have all you need for your stay. the hotel staff does a very good job of cleaning daily and are friendly. the suites are modern and look quite new. the air conditioning is not noisy and works very well. overall we were very happy with the hotel.
the location however could be better. the beach in front of the hotel is not the nicest and is next to a busy road, which has constant moto, scooter traffic which does not make a beach stay very quiet. however there are beautiful other beaches walking distance from hotel.
the hotel does seem to attract some older men which are looking for local ladies. it is all very discrete but not the most family friendly environment.
las terrenas has many restaurants to offer but what has turned me off is the constant traffic on the small road on the beach. the place would be soooo much better without this traffic. what a pity.
overall a very good hotel, for the price (low season) was very reasonable.

The Albachiara Hotel was a great experience for me and my family while visiting Las Terrenas, Samaná. It definitely made our vacation very pleasant, and was one of the highlights of the trip. We spent almost a week there. The apartment was neat, very well decorated and comfy. Breakfast is included and very good as well. The location is very convenient, located right across the beach and near a lot of restaurants and bars at the beach. I highly recommend it.

I took an apartment and I was astonished of how big the place was. Everything was very neat. The employees were very nice. And the atmosphere was extremely pleasant. The location is perfect. We took our breakfast in front a the gorgeous colors of Las Terrenas's beach. I will come back without a doubt!

I traveled with my family. We stayed in a gorgeous and spacious apartment. The rooms were very comfortable. We had everything we needed. Breakfast was delicious. We had a small dog that felt perfectly at ease. The location was ideal, the hotel is in the center of Las Terrenas.

My family and I are just back from a fantastic week at this residence, after having a fantastic time last year! Every year there is even something more and special.Location is fantastic, really close to the hearth of Las Terrenas so you can walk everywhere.
People at the reception are very friendly and helpful for anything you need and the service is really good.
The buffet breakfast is a feast of local fresh fruits, juices, eggs, yogurt........Apartments are spacious and we spend our time on the terrace, when we are not on one of the fantastic beaches that you can find in Las Terrenas.Great place for couples, families and very safe even if you like to go by yourself! Looking forward to next year...I hope!

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.
