Albachiara was one of the best hotels i've ever stayed in. from the moment we walked in and were offered fresh fruit smoothies, to the helpful reception staff who called all their contacts to try get us a tour on an off-day (couldn't be done unfortunately -- make sure you check what days the tours you want to do run!). And the room, the room! More like a 1 bed apartment, it was like the island home we wished we had. Never seen a better laid out 1 bed, in all honesty, with a lovely spacious indoor-outdoor living kitchen and patio, overlooking the pool and garden!
In all seriousness (well, almost!) we considered buying the apartment, #4, and actually, it turns out you can! Or at least, some of the accommodations at Albachiara are privately owned, that's how lovely the place is.
Included breakfasts were delicious and generous, and the location, directly across from the beach and just out of town, was perfect.
Clean, lovely, welcoming -- you can tell by now, we loved it!
