I have stated here many times because that's the hotel that my company chose . The personnel is friendly but each room I have had has been dark at night . I prefer a good strong light in my room and here you would not be able to see yourself well in the mirror . Also a lot of the outlets by the bed are out of work and I cannot charge the phone next to me . It is annoying since I like to watch the news on my phone . The location is dangerous at night . You need a taxi or a car . Violence in DR .... Read more

O.M.G. what can i say? This is my second stay in this hotel. I was there in 2015 and EVERYTHING was so outstanding that i had to return. The staff, food, amenities, especially the pool area are all i need. I often have friends to come visit and I've never had any problem with them being allowed to visit. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

This was a small casino in Santiago de los Caballeros. It was clean and very luxurious. At night the place gets crowded and it's very nice atmosphere. The service was great and had a great time. Loved it

This is the 5th visit I have made to Hodelpa Gran Almirante. Stayed at Club Imperial where the staff there were very helpful assisting with the details of my day. Alexandra in reservations again handled my booking and allowed me to be flexible with my dates. The daily breakfast at Club Imperial is fantastic, and the restaurant on the ground floor in the evening continues with great food and service. Paul M.

I recently stayed a week at this hotel for work. The hotel is well kept, pool area is nice, my room was clean, bathroom was nicely remodeled, employees were helpful. However, it's located in a very busy area. I woke up to the sound of car horns honking and went to sleep to the sound of car horns honking! But that seems to be normal in Santiago. There is a TGI Fridays right next door to the hotel and I ate there a couple of nights for dinner. Otherwise, the hotel has good food if you're not a fan... Read more

Stayed for a couple of days while in Santiago for a tournament. The hotel is very clean, modern, spacious. The room was big and the beds comfortable, didn't feel any outside/street sounds; the only negative was that there wasn't real windows, just a couple of what looked like portholes. The food was good, but I would have liked a bit more options on the buffet. The real standout from this hotel was the service, very attentive, smiles all around, and everybody took real care to be helpful. You di... Read more

Hodelpa Gran Almirante Hotel was one of the better hotels my family and I stayed at in a long while. I found it better than many of the US hotels I've stayed at. We stayed only at the hotel side so this review is for that side only and not for the casino side. We stayed in one of the penthouse suites.The penthouse lobby has an area where kids can play tic-tac-toe while overlooking the pool and a nice view of Santiago. We were pampered by the staff. A shout out to Rosanna. She was at Guest Serv... Read more

I stayed there for business for a week and will continue to stay when I return for business. The room was a typical hotel room design, whether in the US or anywhere else. The bed was surprisingly comfortable and although I brought my own pillow because hotel pillows are typically uncomfortable, I ended up using theirs because they were equally as comfortable. The room also had a nice, fully stocked mini fridge. The only drawbacks from the room were: the sliding mirrored closet doors were o... Read more

We did not stay over but stopped over to plan for our wedding next year. All accommodations are first along with service. The inside of the hotel is modern but also very clean. The staff is curtious. The casino is rather small but well maintained and good security. The latest slots are on hand as well.

I will stay at the hotel one of these trips. but the casino is the class of Santiago, without a doubt. As a matter of fact I'd venture to say the hotel is as well, without seeing the inside of the rooms. I surmise this from he door staff, the cleanliness, the clientele is always dressed well. Right next door is a Chili's, so its really quite busy, a good mix of partygoers, mostly Dominicans I'd say. The casino is clean and the staff is courteous. I missed this courtesy when I went to the capita... Read more

The bridal party and I stayed in the honeymoon suite for the day getting ready for my best friend's wedding. The a/c didn't work, there was a leak in the bathroom, and the actual room we had reserved wasn't ready for hours. The hotel itself was nice, but not for the price. I wouldn't recommend this hotel.

Just returned from a group business trip to Santiago, DR where we stayed at the Hodelpa. We were greeted by kind, friendly staff with cool towels and complimentary drink. Checkin was seamless and quickly found myself in an oversized room. All the expected accommodations were present, including adequate lighting, air conditioning, in room safe, desk, good wifi reception, flat panel television, water pressure and electrical outlets.

room was very nice, clean. the hallways need updating. In the rooms you can hear what is going on outside and in the hall. the pool is very nice and large. The pool bar is small and could use updating.

This is an easily accessed hotel, with a casino on one side and a TGIF restaurant on the other side. It is reportedly the best in the market, but keep your expectations very modest. The staff is very nice and courteous and friendly, but the physical hotel is older, and the rooms are definitely not very modern. Maintenance and housekeeping could be better. Internet speed is very slow. Breakfast is modest. The higher rooms offer good views and panoramas of the city.

My husband and I have been staying at this hotel for 8 years. We go to the D.R. twice a year when visiting family and always stay here. First take advantage of the free hotel airport shuttle service ‚?? they are always on time, much better than taking a taxi. The bus has plenty of room and the drivers are careful ‚?? don‚??t forget to tip! The staff are very helpful, friendly and very attentive and they speak English. The hotel continues to remodel and make improvements and so it always loo... Read more
