Hodelpa Gran Almirante Hotel & Casino
Reviewed 18 February 2011

PROS: The beds were great - I slept really well! When I closed the curtains, my room was completely dark and quiet. The rooms are spacious and clean. They get plenty of TV channels, even local New York channels. The gym has 2 treadmills and one can do laps in the pool. The wi-fi was relatively fast and free. They provide complimentary bottled water. There is a supermarket nearby (Nacional Supermercado). The casino money changer is better than the frontdesk. Everything in Santiago is 10 - 15 mins away by car.

CONS: The food was ok. The service, as with all things in the DR, is so-so and relatively slow - but this hotel's service is better than others. My colleague arrived to the hotel at midnight and her room service did not arrive until 2 hours after ordering. The electricity goes off for less than 5 minutes once in a while (this is Santiago's problem, not the hotel) - it switched off while I was on the treadmill.

I highly recommend this hotel, although it might be pricey it's all worth it. The staff is very friendly always meeting your needs. The food is excellent, the pool is great. The entire Hodelpa Gran Almirante Staff are great. I have stayed here for a lot of years now, both for pleasure and business and I have no negative review. I am a very picky person when it comes to staying in a hotel and this hotel always meets all my expectations. It is located in an area near everything, clubs, lounges, restaurants, museums, theatre..etc.. If you want to get away and relax while in the Santiago area this is the place to stay.

For Santiago citym this is a very good hotel, good location, has a TGI Fridays next to it and the hotel food is also Ok. The rooms are very comfty and so are the beds, Cable service is not so good, but air conditioning works great. Breakfas is actually overrated and do not dear to eat anything from the minibar, because is extremely expensive. Other than that the hotel is very good. the service is good and the staff is polite and nice. The location is actually pretty good since it has a lot of places near it to visit and do stuff..

A self contained hotel with excellent services. Restaurants, bar, casino, pool. More amenities than I needed. I will go back if I travel to Santiago.

We stayed in this location while visiting a former foreign exchange student from Santiago. We loved the pool on the 2nd floor and the staff was very nice. We had breakfast each day in the hotel (price a little high) but did not have any other meals at this location. The rooms were lovely and we would recomment this hotel.

Very nice hotel, with very pleasant staff and front desk personel. Very confortable room. My room had two AC units. Try to get upper floor rooms to minimize street noise. Hotel restaurant menu very limited and expensive, but you have a Friday's next work. Easy ride from airport.
