Certificate of Excellence awarded to two exceptional Dominican Republic hotels

Two outstanding hotels in the Dominican Republic have recently earned two prestigious Certificates of Excellence awarded by popular traveller’s opinion website, TripAdvisor. The legendary El Embajador, an iconic hotel located at the heart of the capital city in Santo Domingo and the eco-friendly reserve Casa Bonita Tropical Lodge in Baahona, were both recently honoured with one of the world’s most prestigious recognitions of excellence, awarded by one of the world’s most important travel websites.

The awards were bestowed in recognition of the excellent tourism facilities and services both properties provide to the discerning travellers after achieving high ratings from past international customers who enjoyed Dominican Republic holidays at either of these hotels.

El Embajador Occidental hotel has long enjoyed a reputation as one of Santo Domingo’s most prestigious landmark hotels. Built in 1952, this 278-room property is seen as a true classic and its convenient location near the centric Parque del Mirador (the city’s most important and historical park) attracts thousands of travellers each year.

With plenty of modern facilities that include an outdoor pool, large tropical gardens, a fully fitted gym, a business centre, an executive floor, gourmet restaurants and a relaxing spa, it’s no wonder many consider El Embajador to be the number one choice in the capital. Close to many of the attractions that lure travellers to this colonial city, El Embajador is certainly a fine place to stay when enjoying holidays in the Dominican Republic’s culture-rich Santo Domingo. A curious detail for which the hotel has also become known is that the trees in the hotel’s gardens are home to thousands of parrots. The colourful birds leave their treetop shelters in the early hours of the morning and return to their safe haven at the end of the day.

Casa Bonita on the other hand is a fine example of a luxury eco-lodge perfectly blending exceptional service and facilities with a deep concern about the local environment and respecting the surrounding ecosystem.

Located in the country’s southwestern region of Barahona, this hotel achieved the highest honours in TripAdvisor for providing excellent service. Past guests gave the hotel the highest ratings for the impeccable service they received.

This quaint boutique hotel might only offer 12 suites, but all are wonderfully refurbished and equipped for even the most discerning guest in search of luxury Dominican Republic holidays. All suites are decorated with rustic elegance and from the hotel grounds guests enjoy full access to canopy tours, tennis, mountain biking, hiking and snorkelling, among many other attraction. The hotel’s restaurant also makes use of the freshest organic ingredients, grown in the hotel’s very own gardens.
