“Overall a very nice experience”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

Recently stayed at the El Embajador for a friend's wedding. They event itself was a blast, with the staff executing every detail to a high level of brilliance. There was a slight hiccup with our initial room - the current construction was a bit noisy in the morning - but the Royal Club staff easily accommodated us by switching our room. Maria, Carolina, and Katie were extremely helpful the whole time we were there. I highly recommend upgrading to the Royal Club room experience, especially if you want to take advantage of the free drinks and snacks. It makes for a much more luxurious experience for much less cost. If I'm ever back in Santo Domingo, I can't imagine staying anywhere else!

A warm welcome, fast check-in/check-out. In general very good and friendly service. The hotel is newly renovated. The location is convenient for business close to mayor financial business. The service at the hotel is the best and the staff is well trained and knowledgeable. Great pool area and bar.

The hotel is old but shows a recent renovation.

Food in restaurants is better than average for a hotel in this price range.

Room was clean but the TV was a little small to see from the bed.

Service was efficient and friendly.

Location is convenient. Quiet place but close to financial and business district of the city.

I recently had the pleasure of staying at this hotel and I must say that the staff was superb, specially at the Royal Club..Neatness and professionalism all around not to mention a friendly and knowledge personnel. That along with the pleasure of the caribbean...can not ask for more, definitely recommended.

If you are traveling to Santo Domingo Dominican Republic stay at the Occidental El Embajador. Newly renovated,very friendly staff and fairly priced. Also in a very safe section of town near great restaurants.

Room Tip: Rooms on south side (ocean view) are quieter.

I stayed in a newly renovated room.
It's really great decor, very modern and comfortable. Really first class.

I have been staying at this hotel for many years and the staff is very friendly and professional. It really makes my business trips feel like work with lots of pleasure.
I highly recommend it!

I always stay at El Embajador when I am in Santo Domingo.
Here I always get good service, friendly people work at the hotel, I always feel that they
remember me everytime I come back.
Also the prices are fair here, only thing negative is maybe the WIFI connection at the swimming-pool area.....Not too good.

Can recommend this hotel to you all...
