    Very good

    They provide you with welcome drink; they gave me a good floor and sight; breakfast is good.

    The problems referring mostly to Booked.net: the parking is not free, it's for money; the gps coordinates on Booked.net print leed to whereever but the hotel. Prices in hotel bars are quite high.

    I have stayed at this hotel several times and the staff is always helpful, professional and friendly, this last time was not the exception. They have changed management and even a fruit plate was delivered to welcome us. Everything was neat in the room as well as the bathroom which usually had minors details lacking (like a broken shower curtain). The location couldn’t be better and safe as you can get in the DR. Jimmy at the front desk is very helpful and professional, however everyone at this hotel understands the word service.

    Very good

    It was a good experience! Though most of the time I spent in the hotel is to rest and sleep, all was good. Room was clean lobby well decorated swimmming pool big and clean. Stuff was very helpfull.

    I had to pay for parking!!! I could not believe it. I am paying to stay at the hotel and parking is not incluted. And not only that. It was complicated. You get a coin at the entrance of the parking and before you exit again you have to pass from the lobby and activate it, and pay!! Offcource that would last you for the whole day. This is my only issue with the hotel!!

    Superb

    The buffet breakfast was very good and they offer good choice

    Evacuation of the bathtub was very slow

    Fabulous

    The comfort and everything was available on the premises.

    I believe that if I pay the price of my room, the management should not go and charge extra money if I receive a guest in my room. It was very disgusting for a big hotel like " Occidental El Embajador " to violate his client's privacy. It is unacceptable.

    Very good

    Very convenient. Restaurant, bank and business center are in the hotel. Bilingual desk workers.

    I was double charged for my first night despite paying when I booked it online from Booked.net. I discovered the double billing after the fact (no signed receipt). I was also charged by the hotel for a taxi fare that I paid cash directly to the driver. Again, no signed receipt. They just do this stuff after the fact. I have an email pending with them but no response. I will be disputing these charges with my credit card company soon if no response is heard.

    Hotel was clean, decent in a good location. Ihave stayed in this hotel before but this time i wasn't happy.

    They have started this ridicilius parking rule with a plastic coin. Everytime i parked my car there i was scared to lose this ridicilous plastic coin. I left the coin in the room couple of times, because being used to park free in a hotel parking area. I don't mind paying for but we are talking about 50-60 pesos a day and that is 1-1.5 dollar. They could include that in the price and not make the customer suffer and stop this toruture. Couple of times the coin didn't work in the machine. i had to park the car and go to the counter to fix the problem. It was a full torture. And the internet connection in the was horible. It took at least 3-4 min. to open a page. insted of creating tortures parking system, they should put a better connection.

    Superb

    i stayed on the fourth floor - the room was spacious - free direct internet connection - mini bar (u pay for what u use) - walk in closet where there was a safe (no additional cost - The staff was great - one bellman (Roman) refused a tip becuase i had given him about US$5.00 earlier that day. The grounds are very clean. - the pool is nice and clean - I found the drink and food prices to be fair - In the lobby you will usually find business people waiting on a conference of some sort -

    Fabulous

    Check in was smooth. For the second time in a row, they knew who I was and that my reservation for room nights was already pre-paid.

    What the hotel gives up in negotiated room rates through Booked.net, they make up in their on-site restaurants. You pay a very high price for convenience of eating on site.
