Staff is very helpful, friendly and professional. Breakfast is superb. Grab a cab and go anywhere, for business or pleasure.

Great bang for your buck

The rooms were suprosongly luxurious with walk in closet and balcony. Workers were quite friendly and professional. The only issue was the TV was really small for the size of the room about 19. Considering that was the only issue, it was an overall great experience. I will return in future visits to the Dominican Republic.

Great Wedding!

My sister got married at hotel Embajador on August 9th, at the Grand Ballroom. The wedding was spectacular. I stayed with my brother at this hotel for two nights. They allowed us to check in by noon, although the check in time is 3:00pm. The rooms were beautiful. My sister had a suite, the suites are beautifully appointed. Should you stay at this hotel, request for the pool view. nice view of the ocean, which is about one mile away. Great view of the city, since the hotel is located on higher ground in the area known as Anacaona, Mirador Sur, Santo domingo's pricest neighborhood where the average apt costs 1 million dollars. If you are considering staying at Jaragua, do not waste your money, stay at Embajador. Cleaner, gorgeous grounds, less expensive at the bars and restaurants, great pool. I will stay at this hotel next time i go to santo domingo.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

Go to Praia,and Led. Hotest clubs with great music. But must dress to impress. Dominican socialites, bring a lot of money with you. Have the concierge reserve a table for you. Very hard to get in, if you do not look the part.

comfort and elegance

This hotel is very comfortable for business and personal travel as well. The rooms are clean, large and well-appointed. The lobby is attractive and has enough seating for a large number of persons, whether just relaxing, wanting a drink at the bar, or waiting for someone else. The staff is helpful but not overwhelming. The casino is just the right size, with choices of various games, but still not a loud atmosphere. My #1 choice in Santo Domingo.
