“outstanding valueand location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Coming from orlando, fl I am very used to large hotels many with excellant service. Alba was a very unexpected pleasure. Excellant location near downtown and across from a very nice beach. The room was clean and very comfortable with a kitchenette. A spacious porch opened to the large pool and grounds. Very attentive staff and special efforts by Luis of the front office staff made my visit a very special vacation. I enjoyed my stay at Albachiara and Las Terrenas so much that I changed my plans from 3 nights to a week stay. I intend to visit again and will again stay at the Alba.

We enjoyed staying here. The property is well maintained and has a friendly staff, good pool and nice rooms. Breakfast buffet was very good. Walking distance from downtown. Walk down the beach to enjoy the morning sunrise.

We had a great break in a comfortable one bedroom ground floor apartment. It was fairly well equipped as long as you didn't want to cook too much, but the addition of a kettle and/or microwave to the kitchen area would have made a big improvement.
The hotel was very relaxed, yet fully secure, and staffed 24 hours a day. Breakfast was fine and plentiful. The staff all very friendly, and for those who struggle to speak Spanish Luiz was always on hand to help (although he did make us promise to give him a special mention on this site as we left).
There were always plenty of beds around the decent sized pool. Although the beach immediately across the road is small it is well maintained, and there is decent snorkelling only a few meters from shore. One small plea though, is there any chance of a path across the gravel car park for those returning from the sea minus footwear?
The location was quite peaceful yet central to Las Terrenas, with plenty of choices for dining out, although walking out (especially at night) is spoiled by the constant buzz of motor bikes, scooters and quad bikes, which detracts from the ambience of what otherwise would be a wonderful destination.
For those travelling on a medium budget and wanting the freedom from the all-inclusive resort packages we would highly recommend the Albachiara as an excellent value for money hotel.

Room Tip: We had requested an upper floor, but clearly this request had been missed. When we arrived (after da...

Me and my family have been going to Albachiara for several years now and every experience is amazing! I recommend it 100% those who want a quiet, nice environment. Breakfast is very good and diverse, it is located right across from playa punta poppy so you are just steps away from great beaches... Its also close to the "pueblo"

We got an apartment with 2 rooms and 2 bathrooms. It was bigger than we expected!! We had kitchen with everything from a stove to pots and dishes. There was a dining table in the balcony where you can enjoy some coffee or a meal. The rooms were super clean. The staff was very friendly and super helpful. It was within walking distance of pretty much everything and the bus stop was about 2 blocks from the hotel. There were bars pretty much down the road and restaurants all over (we tend not to cook when we are on vacation).
