Hi all, I have stayed numerous times at the Alba Chiara and really like the place a lot but I felt like I had to write this review in light of an incident that occurred with an employee at breakfast. I went up a little later than the posted breakfast times and tried to get some toast and fried eggs (the griddle was still on and hot and there were dozens of eggs next to it) but was yelled at by an employee that barely spoke spanish who offered me juice and told me that it was too late for breakfast. My brother in law and cousin were at a table having their late breakfast and felt so bad about how the lady treated me that they offered me half of their breakfast which I declined. Out of roughly 10+ visits here this is just the 2nd bad thing that has happened (my sister got 100 dollars stolen from her purse in the room once) everything else about this place is excellent. The rooms are clean, the people are friendly (except for the breakfast lady) and the location is 2nd to none (beach across the street, liquor store right next door and Pizza Coco restaurant a couple of meters away for some excellent thin crust pizza and pasta). This is a great place for families to visit and the new highway has made it easier than ever to get to las terrenas so make sure and head out to Alba Chiara for a couple of relaxing days and don't be late to breakfast!! :)
