“Impressive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

Overall, this is a nice hotel. My first time to a non-resort hotel on a beautiful island.

You can tell right away that it has history. Tucked away, off the main road. I was in room 545 at the opposite end of the elevator. The view was not impressive unfortunately. Next time I will ask for ocean view room. The tv is small, just like the bathroom. Not impressive. I was hoping for a more modern bathroom. Do not drink the water, use the provided bottled water to brush your teeth.

The landscaping and scenery out front and back is beautiful. The food is well priced and very tasty. I would recommend eating there whenever!

Hope to be back soon.

Room Tip: Get an updated ocean view room on the 5th or 6th floor - Royal club floors

Hotel seems nice on the internet. When you get there is a very old buolding, lobby is nice and common areas seem very well maintained.

Once in the room, you can tell is old. I had a superior rooms that happened to be remodeled. Well... Rooms looked nice but was horribly humid, bathroom was pretty ugly and old, and the part I really hated was: THE NOISE. rooms are definitely not sound proof at all. You can hear people walking, cars coming in, even people talking st the pool (and yes my doors and windows where shut)

Definitely better options for the same price in Santo Domingo.

I am so grateful for the El Emajador. I just spent tree weeks at the Hilton and Crown Plaza in Santo Domingo. And while these two hotels are both fine, it is when you walk outside the experience goes bad. You will be harassed by pimps and prostitutes to the point I would not leave the hotel. Not so with El Embajador. This hotel is awesome. From the professional staff to the luxury of the hotel. They have a courtyard that is beautiful. And the food is wonderful. The next time I am in the D.R. This is my hotel

If going to the DR, there is no better place to stay than here. I stayed at the Royal Club floor and the services was superb. Even the manager greeted me, Maria Isabel, and made sure everything was perfect. Personalized service at all times!!!!
