We took our 5 year old granddaughter for 8 days and had a blast. Each of the pools are shallow enough for children, and there are plenty of pools. Add in the free breakfast and happy hour and you find a real economic plus in staying here.

Maybe it is consistent with its brand but the location and setting should give the Embassy Suits Durado del Mar at shot at greatness. First off I will say that our room was excellent and the Staff where very friendly and attentive. The facility is clean and well maintained except for the golf course that is out of service and going to seed. I don't know what the story with the abandoned golf course is but since you have to drive through the leignth of the course to get to the hotel it sets t... Read more

Coming all the way from New York City to a destination resort is something new for me, however spa experiences are what I indulge myself in. A licensed Esthetician and Makeup artist myself I seek the standards and practices of a true spa experience. The hotel offers spa services like massages but they are available on call or on an as needed basis, so there are rooms for services but not the spa environment one would expect. This was something I was unaware of and a detriment in planning my ... Read more

I only gave 4 stars out of 5 because I wasn't able to do late check-out as planned. I only stayed for 1 night for my daughter's Prom and it was very important for my family to be able to do late check-out and even with the HHonors it was not available.

Our two room suite had such a wonderful ocean view! I could've stay on the balcony and been as happy as can be but there was so much more to see. The hotel is directly on the beach, u can rent snorkeling equipment down on the sand, The water was rough so we didn't see many fish but it was still fun. They have a happy hour with free drinks every night, how awesome is that?!! Room was clean and it was great to have a separate sitting area.

We spent the July 4th holiday at this hotel. The place was sold out and busy. The staff did not miss a beat and did a great job. They were very helpful and went the extra mile. There are plenty of things to do on site and off. You will need a vehicle to go close by restaurants. there is only one within walking distance. Overall we stayed here because I wanted to be able to have the kids go directly to the pool and beach area. We live in San Juan and this is a short drive to a nice beach area.

Beautiful hotel. The staff was excellent and did all they could to make our stay a pleasant experience. The Hotel is somewhat dated. In my experience, the beach area was not to other Hiltons standards. Not clean nor inviting. Had problems with bathroom overflowing.

This was a beautiful hotel. Very clean and the staff was exceptionally friendly. The complimentary breakfast was exceptional and the open bar from 5-7 pm was a plus. It was quit a distance to travel into San Juan where a couple of my kids did. The ferry fair was not expensive. They had an amazing time visiting there. The rest of us went to Carolina beach where we Parasailed and Jet Skied. That side of the island was more beautiful with clearer waters.

We wanted a relaxing and safe place to stay with our 9 month old so we opted to get out of San Juan. Dorado is beautiful and located near some of the best beaches I have ever been to! The hotel pool and beach are also very nice, although I wish they had beach umbrellas for rent. The staff here are all very friendly and helpful. The restaurant food is good, but I do wish the breakfast had more of a local was just basic continental food. All in all, I would definitely recommend staying ... Read more

I just returned from this property with a group of ladies for a retreat, and I can't wait to go back!! Just the food alone is a reason to go, but the staff, the pool area and everything else just made it great. The daily dinner specials were a huge hit, and the complimentary breakfast was just enough to start my day off right before I headed outside to the pool/beach area. I have nothing else to say about this hotel except you MUST visit!!!

We were not told about the bell hop and maid fee prior to our stay and when we received our bill at the end of our stay these fees were added in. Service at the restaurant was particularly bad one evening - we waited for 30-45 min for menus and 30-45 min for bills once everyone was done eating. Food took forever to come out and once it did some of it was cold. Some of us sent it back. Desserts were ordered and chocolate cake was hard and cold, almost like it was the display.

Like the title says, don't expect much. It looked like it was really nice at one time and now it seems to be barely open, as if things are just getting run down and they don't have the budget to keep things up to par. Lot of space in the room and a comfortable bed. Some of the bathroom fixtures were falling apart. Some of the staff is friendly, the rest could care less.

The hotel was fine, though it did seem a bit run down. The main problem is the hotel is very far from just about everything, including Old San Juan, a nice beach, casino. Dorado is about a 45 min taxi ride from the airport. Better to stay in Old San Juan.

This hotel does not meet minimum Hilton standards. Customer service, quality of food and facilities are of a motel in the USA. Prices are also over rated and transportation is extremely expensive. You must rent a car if planning to eat out or visit places. Hotel taxis tried to charge us 20 dollars for taking us 1.5 miles out of the resort. We preferred to walk! This hotel is not friendly for business due to noise and it is extremely busy with families on weekends for vacation.

The place is clean. If that's all you need , this is the place for you. The hotel tend to schedule seminars and other activities and it ends up interfering with the guests either because the front entrance of the hotel is full of vehicles and you can't drop off or pick up anyone, or the parking lot is full or just plain long lines for everything, from using the elevators to the front desk, the dining and pool areas.

First room was stinking from damp. Very very poor breakfast. Hotel hasn't been renovated since 90's Jacuzzis wasn't working for 6 days Wifi was off for our first night For this value of money is just a joke what you receive. Doesn't worth to pay for this 3?? hotel at all. Think about it twice to book this or if yes you must have very low expectations.
