We stayed only one night as we visited Santo Domingo for business reasons, but it was well worth the trip. The rate was fantastic and you received breakfast in the morning, which was delicious! No tiny continentals - here there was a delicious spread. The room was very, very modern, and nicely designed, with loads of nice touches. The staff were friendly and we enjoyed chatting at the desk with them.

In the evening before leaving the hotel for dinner, we enjoyed the live music at the lobby bar. Very relaxing, and the service was marvelous.

A stroll through the grounds is a must, as the beautiful gardens in the rear off the pool are lovely. The property has been around for quite a number of years, and the mature flowers, plants and trees really are impressive. The lighting at night is also terrific for a stroll.

This is my fourth stay at the hotel. Overall, the hotel has beautiful grounds and modern amenities that make the stay worthwhile. That being said, the breakfast buffet was monotonous in quality and variety. The Ambassador and Royal level offer more luxury than their standard rooms. If you have the finances go for one of those levels. If not, let them know if something isn’t to your liking in the standard room and I’m sure they will try their best to fix the issue.

The El Embajador Hotel in Santo Domingo is a fantastic upgraded hotel steeped in history. The staff is absolutely fantastic, always smiling, always ready to accommodate and make life on the run as easy as they can. Great restaurants as well. I just had the best Red Snapper filet I've had in a long time, cooked to perfection by Chef Carlos, and recommended by Aneuris Perez. Again, with a smile, great conversation and a cold glass of white wine. The best of the best!

Excellent stay
