Great getaway!!

I had a great time on my vacation. The staff at this hotel were so helpful and nice! They pushed elevator button, brought pool towels to us, answered all questions with a smile....the phrase for the weekend was "a la orden" which means of course or whatever I can help you with. I was a bit spoiled while there. The room is a bit dated, but it was very big. It has a walk in closet, with safe, hangers, and iron. If you stay on the second floor, there are steps that lead straight to the pool. We did not get a food package, so we only ate in the hotel a couple nights, because it was a bit pricey. There are restaurants within walking distance from hotel, we even ordered dominoes one afternoon. Cubanisimo is one of the restaurants right outside the hotel. Great food,staff and prices. Great hotel, fabulous staff, and awesome price!!!

Nice but missing a few things

The room is large, the pool great and the public areas very nice. However it's listed as a 4 star and what 4 star comes with no tissues in the bathroom, no clock and two small, very old pillows on a king size bed? It needs some updating in the room even though it's done with lovely antiques. It's quite far from the airport (about 35 mins) but if you want to be in the city it's a good location.

Always Classy

El Embajador is a beautiful and classy hotel. Everything that you want in a hotel can be found in this hotel in Santo Domingo. Our family always enjoys our stay here. This time we noticed more upgrades and better maintenance. It doesn't get any better.

stay at el ambajador

stayed mostly between the room and next to the pool. The sport room is not well equiped. Many times there was some kind of odor in the ways to the rooms. The beds were not confortable enough. The tv set was too small and the remote control not easy to operate. Nothing to say bad about the service (always did their best to accomodate our needs), even though they could find a simpler system to control the parking stays. The breakfast was good and well diversified. There was a wedding party that lasted untill 4a.m. that prevented members of my family to sleep : this means the party area is not sound proof for the rooms. The building needs a lift, so does the rooms' interiors.

Nice Hotel

The rooms were nice and the staff was courteous. I had some problems with the movies on my TV, but it was fixed quickly. The internet in the room was horrible but in the lobby, the wifi was first rate.
