My first trip to Santo Domingo and i chose Occidental El Embajador as a hotel . The Hotel itself is beautiful with elegant and glamourous decors. The rooms are big and confortable but what i liked the most was the food - such variety and the fish dishes are amazing - You have to try them. The Outdoor Pool Is...

We like to stay in a hotel whjle visiting family in the Capital and this hotel turned out to be better than we expected. We were looking for something affordable so we decided to stay off the hotels of "the Malecon". It turned out to be better than expected and the service was great. We stayed on the Executive Floor...

Not only does the tourist/business traveler get to enjoy the historical hotel where a scene of the Godfather II was shot, they also get to enjoy the best view of the Caribbean ocean from their own private balcony in their newly renovated rooms. The friendliness of the service staff is unequal, particularly in the Royal Club where Maria Isabel and...

My family and I stayed for 12 days at the hotel, I had two 2-year old boys so the garden and the swimming pool played a great deal in making our stay enjoyable. Rates are very good and the service is great, especially when all the employees are very friendly and always trying to assist. Despite the fact that there...

A second business stay at this hotel, and it is obvious their remodeling effort is paying off. The Executive Club concierge floor has all the amenities and friendly service one needs or could want; room (6th Floor and facing ocean) was comfortable and clean. Main floor lobby has spacious areas for personal meetings, with an attractive bar, and excellent breakfast...

We recently celebrated my sons wedding in this Hotel and the service and the food were excellent.

This hotel is out of this world, the decor is elegant, and well maintained. On Club level there is a continental buffet for breakfast, and snacks in the evenings, with free tea and coffee 24hrs, but a full breakfast menu was available in the downstairs restaurants. The bed was a good size and had a very good nights sleep. The...

Returned for a 40 years anniversary and Ventura Serra the Operations VP had a wonderful bottle of cava champagne, fruit basket and welcome drinks. We were given a room in the 4th floor (recently remodeled, still smelled new) facing the rear patio. It was private and soothing. We didn't choose the buffet breakfast since we were running around so much....

We stayed here for my brother's wedding. We arrived early in the day, hours before check in. I was afraid we'd have to sit around and wait for our room at the hotel bar, but we were offered a room upgrade on the executive level that includes breakfast for a small fee. That was extremely thoughtful since we'd just arrived...
