My wife and I spent 3 days at the Albachiara. We were greatly pleased with the experience. The staff at the Albachiara hotel was super-friendly and committed to offer the best possible experience to their guests. As an example, they had no problem letting me make as many local calls as I wanted to different people and tour guides. I felt the hotel was very convieniently located - you can take an express bus to Santo Domingo from the hotel - and it is close to all the shops, restaurants and beaches in Las Terrenas. Breakfast was good and service impeccable. Rooms are big, modern, and very clean. Could not ask for more, we are looking forward to coming back!
