Nice location and entertainment awaits in lobby

Would recommend Mon, Dec 29, 2014
It was all good. The casino was active and the hotel was in a great location. The immediate downtown area was clean and there are plenty of shops and local pubs within walking distance. Be careful driving at night, the police look for tourists to pull over and hold up until they get a pay-off. Wear your seat belt, I got pulled over twice within 15 minutes...$20/each stop.

Nightlife hint

Get out. A rolling stone gathers no moss. Boca Chica is a nice day trip, as is La Romana.

It was OK, but once there, they told me that for that special fee, breakfast was not included. I wasn't expecting that. Overall staff very nice; swimming pool is excellent.

The rooms need a lot of work

Would not recommend Tue, Sep 2, 2014
First the good. Grounds are beautiful. Pool is nice. Even spaces are nice. Now the bad. 1. Rooms: Our party booked 3 rooms at this hotel. Two were on the 3rd floor. Mine was on the 6th. My room was decent, no major complaints, even though the bathroom looked like it was put together with a couple of tubes of caulk. The rooms on the 3rd floor, however, were completely unacceptable. Leaking ceilings, peeling paint, balcony doors that dont close, letting in all the noise from the outside. The only reason we didnt get up and move to another hotel is because we were such a large party and were attending a wedding at the hotel (which was beautiful, btw). 2. Service: Average at best. My brother in law asked for some chairs to use on the patio. When he returned to his room that evening, he was surprised to find a BANQUET TABLE and 6 chairs IN HIS ROOM. When speaking to the supervisor about it, in person, she just shrugged her shoulders. No apology, nothing. 3. Location: The location of this hotel is not very good. While it looks like its in the middle of the city, it is actually very far walking distance from anything you may want to see in Santo Domingo. You have to cab it everywhere, which is an adventure in it of itself and quickly adds up. Overall, I am probably not coming back to Santo Doming anytime soon, and when I do, I definitely will not stay at the Embajador.
