Loved my stay at the Occidental El Embajador and I would highly recommend it to friends and family. Their staff was the upmost professional and friendly.

We stayed for 5 nights in association with a wedding occurring at the hotel. Excellent all around including, for example: customer service; clean comfortable rooms and beds; nice outdoor pool; very clean public spaces (eg, lobby and toilets); hotel dedicated taxi service for local and regional runs; nice restaurants immediately adjacent, and so on. All for US$130/night - no doubt...

Very nice experience, not sure why there are negative reviews on here. It is a touch old, but its maintained well and this adds to the charm. Very nice restaurant (great breakfast!), lovely outside pool to relax next to. Good location in San Domingo. Very helpful staff. I'd certainly go back next time I'm in the Dom Rep.
