Location: The hotel is centrally located across the street from Las Terrenas beach which is not a beach that you can speak of but you will be pretty near from Punta Popy and that one is beautiful! Don’t bother looking for a hotel that has it’s own beach cause non of them in Las Terrenas have one but it doesn’t matter since they are just steps away. About the Hotel: They have a promo which is cash only: us55 per person per night and babies under 2 years go free. No deposit was required They include daily cleaning, fumigation and the breakfast (very good and is located in the second floor, you can enjoy the beach view and they have a high chair) but don’t include lunch or dinner. Service is very nice and friendly The check in is at 12pm and check out is at 1pm but maybe for the low season they are accepting guest to arrive early and leave late for free. They called me at 9am to tell me the apartment was ready and we could go. And on the departure we left around 2:30pm but they told us we could stay longer (loved that, specially because we almost had the whole property all for ourselves since it was in low occupancy. Can’t describe how relaxing it was) They give you two beach cards for the towels and give you a courtesy beach bag (thank you) About the apartment: (I’ll show you the pictures they sent me) It was the apartment 14, facing the pool. They are pretty big: private balcony with furniture, kitchen well equipped and plenty of drinking water, two TV, living room with furniture, there is a bidet in the bathroom which is very important to me, bathroom amenities were clean towels, 2 shampoos and 2 shower gel (didn’t see conditioner or a telephone in the room), and two toilet paper; huge bed and huge closet, air conditioning, ceiling fan, we also requested a crib when we made the reservation and it was there when we arrived. clean and perfect 👌🏼 Cons: -The bed was extremely noisy and it was a real issue because we went with our toddler Good to know: -I heard there is an issue with the mosquitoes in Las terrenas. I saw about 3 of them inside the apartment especially in the closet but didn’t have a problem with them. I did bring a mosquito nest and repellent but didn’t have to use them so take the precaution just in case -there is a curfew in the country that goes from 9pm to about 7am but you can still order delivery food till 10pm -there’s an App called “komida” and another one called “rapidfood” where you can see the menu and prices of different restaurants in las terrenas that have delivery -there are bars and restaurants that are close on mondays or tuesdays, some week days, so do research before you go. Look for the places you want to visit, most of them are on instagram, facebook, trip advisor... check their phone number and call before you go. -there are lots of places that doesn’t have high chair for babies and some of them have just one -there are places and restaurants that are cash only Good Reataurants near by: Right next to the hotel you will find a popular and very good rated restaurant named “El Lugar” find it on instagram as “el lugar las terrenas”. And in the same street there are other very popular restaurants such as “Dolce Vita” this one is very romantic and beautifully decorated, perfect for fine dining we went there for my birthday. Look for it on instagram as “dolce vita ristorante” they have more than 70 plates. Then in the same street but a little bit further you will find El Porto Restaurante (instagram: “portobymosquito” and El Balcon del Mosquito beach bar (instagram: elmosquitobeachbar) You can’t miss them! Right on a beautiful beach and they have a swing for babies and adults, a slide and a mini house for kids Other options in El Pueblo de Los pescadores: Campo Kitchen: dominican restaurant with succulent and exquisites plates. I died for their food and they do karaokes and happy hours. Their instagram: “campokitchendr” Baraonda, in Alisei Hotel Empanadas y Mas: try the shrimp and cheese Empanada …
We moved from another unsuitable hotel to Albachiara. What a good choice we made! The employees where immediately smiling, kind and attentive to us and our needs. The grounds are gorgeous and pristine as is the Pool. The breakfast is outstanding each morning. The rooms are actually apts, with separate bedroom, kitchen, dining/living area along with a large open air balconies with shades. So much space you feel at home. The decor is mediocre, but everything else makes up for it! The location is great for shopping, beach and restaurants. Albachiara is a wonderful choice for your stay in Las Terrenas!
My wife and I have stayed here 6x now and I would stay this location just gets better. The property itself is pristine, with well manicured foliage The staff is very friendly and you can tell they take pride in keeping this hotel looking awesome. The full breakfast is top notch along with the kitchen help enjoying a beach view that can’t be beat while eating breakfast. Great location being across the street from the beach and quick walk into town. It’s a shame that this awesome area has been effected by the bad news of the deaths in the DR. Will be back again. Get out of your comfort zone and give this place a try. You will see for yourself and be back again as we have. 👍
A very nice spacious apartment with good WIFI and a nice kitchen. The pool was super clean, large with plenty of lounge chairs and a bar. It was close to the town center and across the street from the ocean.
Very spacious room that included an enclosed porch, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and large hallway closet. Breakfast buffet was tasty and had a good variety of pastries, fruit, and included made to order eggs. Pool area and other common areas were very nice. Location was across the street from the beach and a couple minute walk from the central restaurant and bar area. Very creaky bed and a good number of mosquitos managed to sneak into our room.
