Lonely Planet review
Wake up in one of these rooms and you’ll swear you’ve been transported back to 1972 – a tatty, sepia-toned version of 1972, that is. In dire need of a refurb, the Embajador, despite its shortcomings, is friendly and rather handily placed a few blocks west of the central Plaza Colón. It also boasts an interesting literary history. A number of years ago, when the famous Caribbean poet Derek Walcott visited RUM for a reading, the English faculty put him up at the Embajador and he allegedly composed some of Omeros here, the work that won him the Nobel Prize in 1992. If the poet in you is not quite up to emulating Walcott, try retiring to the new downstairs Chapas Lounge, which has lent the establishment a new sophistication.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Embajador and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Mayagüez.
