This hotel is out of this world, the decor is elegant, and well maintained. On Club level there is a continental buffet for breakfast, and snacks in the evenings, with free tea and coffee 24hrs, but a full breakfast menu was available in the downstairs restaurants. The bed was a good size and had a very good nights sleep. The...

Returned for a 40 years anniversary and Ventura Serra the Operations VP had a wonderful bottle of cava champagne, fruit basket and welcome drinks. We were given a room in the 4th floor (recently remodeled, still smelled new) facing the rear patio. It was private and soothing. We didn't choose the buffet breakfast since we were running around so much....

We stayed here for my brother's wedding. We arrived early in the day, hours before check in. I was afraid we'd have to sit around and wait for our room at the hotel bar, but we were offered a room upgrade on the executive level that includes breakfast for a small fee. That was extremely thoughtful since we'd just arrived...

This hotel is undergoing renovations, but when I've stayed I've always experienced an old school elegance. The service is phenomenal from the first floor and grounds through to the 8th floor! All of the staff is wonderfully friendly and very sweet. Depending on where in the hotel you are you can get away with English only, since I speak Spanish...

Awesome swimming pool! Room service is also really good! The staff is very attentive and extra-polite. There's a guy working at reception on a first floor, who helped me with taxi to get to Boca Chica beach, so I could go there with trusted driver and could not to worry about my money,passport, camera and so on.

I love El Embajador in Santo Domingo, because it is in a great location and if you get a south room you will have a great view, they are changing the rooms decor and I must say they impressed me, before the rooms were very traditional and now they are grey and very beautiful and comfortable, fantastic bed in the...

As always, the El Embajador was an excellent experience. The included breakfast each morning was first rate. Lunch and dinner offerings and service were very nice for a hotel restaurant. The rooms are clean and well maintained. The staff is continually seeking ways to provide excellent service.

After many years of constantly traveling to Santo Domingo, Occidental El Embajador is clearly the best hotel choice in Santo Domingo. Since the moment you arrive, friendly bell boys greet you with a smile and warm welcome. I always choose to stay on the Royal Club Level which is located on the last two floors of the hotel which provide...
