“Nice location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We had already spent two weeks at a different place and wanted to be near the village when we chose Albachiara for our next two weeks. This was a good choice for that as it put us near restaurants , shops,etc. The downstairs one bedroom units are just enough. Nice size porch with 2 comfy chairs and table as well as a small dining table. Then screened louvered doors lead into a room with sofa, small dining table with chairs and basic kitchen with cook top,fridge and sink.The cooking equipment was of good quality .There was a juicer , blender and espresso pot but no electric coffee pot.Beyond that you enter the bedroom and bathroom. AC is in the bedroom only We sometimes like to watch TV in bed but the first place they put us had the TV in the main room.And there was some early AM construction going on behind our room. So the staff most graciously moved us to another location which was perfect.
We loved this place. The staff is exceptional. From dinner reservations to help with getting needed medication, they were always ready to help. There was a bit of a language issue for us as we don't speak much Spanish, but Johanna always went out of her way to be available with her knowledge of English. Yes, the beach across the street is a disappointment but the pool was great !

I am currently at this hotel as I write the review. Great front desk staff, cleaning help, security and the workers at the free breakfast . My room was a 2 bedroom apartment , 2 baths , huge balcony viewing the pool and ocean . It was only for my girlfriend and myself but I chose the 2 bedroom because they are on the 2nd and 3rd floor and have great views . Very spacious , well with the extra money . I will recommend this hotel to all

We loved this hotel, but were so disappointed in the beach just across the street. It is a narrow strip with hotel lounge chairs, from which you listen to the constant noise of a busy street...motorbikes, vespas, atv's, trucks, most with noisy mufflers! We walked this beach in both directions and enjoyed the local scenes, but never got far from the street, which is the "main drag" into town. (The beach in front of the Hotel Alisei was quieter and wider because the traffic is much less on that side of town.)
So while we agree with all the great reviews of the hotel here on TA, we would have liked to know this caveat.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quiet. Further from the street.

On the beach, next to the downtown (tourist) shopping area, and surrounded by great seafood restaurants. A "single" room for 2 includes a large porch with a view, a kitchen/dining room (no microwave), bedroom, and bath.

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!
