I’ve stayed in El Embajador Hotel over 15 times for the past 3 years now when visiting Family and Friends in DR and the the service, rooms and amenities are exceptional especially in the Royal Leve. The Lounge Staff with Marty, Reynaldo, Fausto and Somalia, going above and beyond to serve you with a smile. Rene and his staff in the restaurant are top notch and food was really good. My only complaint would be that the pool service is slow and inconsistent. Other than that the hotel is worth every penny and the staff in both the Ambassador Level and Royal Leve make up for it. Will definitely keep coming back

At first glance, El Embajador could be a little intimidating even for a seasoned traveler. However, do not be put off by the first impression of elite and exclusion. El Embajador is a welcoming environment where I felt right at home. Great artwork, great furniture pieces and good staff (Dominican Republic sense of service).
