I stay in this hotel regularly when I’m Santiago because of its proximity to my family in the city. However, this hotel is in desperate need of updating. The rooms are dark and dingy and it’s not an enjoyable stay. The breakfast is also limited and lacking options. A shower always creates a mess and there should be two sinks. The bed is somewhat comfortable and the staff is nice but that doesn’t make me want to go back. Im in search of alternate options but would very much like the hotel to change so I can continue staying there.

This was my 4th time staying in this hotel, and as always, I had a great experience. My favorite part of this place is the staff. Thanks Amable, Aimee, Luis and Pedro at the buffet and the rest of them. You guys make the place much better than what already it is. My only complaint/ suggestion it is about the casino, it is annoying that there are a lot of locals holding all the machines at the same time the play in other, and when you ask is the machines are occupied, because the hold them even with a bottle of water they are very rude and from the casino staff nobody those anything.

I’ve been staying monthly at this hotel for the past 10 years for business. The company I work for is quite large, and I have many coworkers whom also have been staying weekly or monthly for 10 years, if not much longer. Needless to say, we have gotten to know the workers over time, and up until recently, they’ve all been really knowledgeable, helpful and nice. Unfortunately, much has changed since my last visit (5/16, for 2 days & nights), me and my coworkers were very abruptly and rudely advised that we could no longer have guests over unless they paid for access to the hotel. Myself and many of my coworkers have family and friends who come by to have lunch or dinner with us at the hotels restaurant, a tab that we always take care of. Whatever is consumed is always paid for, as we are not looking for handouts. To pay what’s basically an “entrance fee” is despicable. You would expect this from an all inclusive resort, wherein meals and beverages (including alcohol) is covered. Were this an all inclusive, I’d be more than happy to pay for my guests entrance fee, but it is not. It seems Hodelpa Gran Almirante is trying to recoup all the money that they may have lost at the beginning of the pandemic. It’s absurd to treat your paying guests in such a way. I spoke to one of the front desk managers that I’ve known for a few years and the overall attitude I was given was “sorry, not sorry”.

True hospitality and customer service, profesional, attentive and pays attention to details. My personal experience with Front desk & Hospitality ManagerJose Orlando Martinez and he's staff. On one of my many stays at the GA hotel, I experienced severed allergies due to the air freshener they use for their rooms, after reporting my situation to Mr. Martinez he immediately provided me to another room and made sure they don't use the product in questioned, since then every time I stay at the GA they are very caution and attentive to my condition since my allergies can trigger my asthma. Taking such responsibility and to have immediate empathy to my situation is part of a great leader and CS representative. To Mr. Martinez and the Staff at the El Gran Almirante hotel, I say, thank you for caring and keep providing Excelent Customer Service!!

My husband and I stayed at Hodelpa Gran Almirante in Santiago D.R. for our first wedding anniversary. Everyone treated us like family. There was one employee that stood out from the rest. Juan Peña was attentive and very welcoming. He made our wedding anniversary memorable by going above and beyond his call of duty by decorating our room beautifully. He turned it into a romantic oasis. Juan, Thank you. Adalgiza

I stayed at Hodelpa Gran Almirante Hotel & Casino for a thanksgiving weekend business trip. This is the best place to stay in Santiago by far for not only for business travelers because of its location in the center of the city. But also for any traveler because of the excellent service by the staff and the upscale amenities. For the best experience please stay at the empire club which has the best rooms in the hotel which are located on the 5th floor. There you get your own separate private check in/out where I was taken care of by the awesome Alexandra Rodriguez who went above and beyond! She even helped me schedule a rapid covid test so that I would have the results to present at the airport to return to the United States. The Gran Almirante is the standard for the city of Santiago as I saw the President of the Dominican Republic who was in town for an event and he was staying on the same floor and said hello to all of us in the lobby.
