Excellent place for the semi-budget traveller. Simple, clean rooms with an outside kitchen. Great balcony's with views of the ocean but you pay for the view. There are cheaper rooms facing the street. The restaurant in front of the hotel is pricy, but you are walking distance to a ton of good, cheap eats. Wifi in the lobby, but not... More

After reading through previous reviews of the Emperador we decided to give it a try.We stayed for a week and had a wonderful experience. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with smiles and gracious service. At the front desk we were assisted during the week by Ian, Claudia and Enoch. Upon checking in Ian was forthright about the... More

Went here for the long weekend and after driving for 11.5 hours, the only thing I could think about was going to sleep. The bed was fantastic. The room itself was nice, nothing fancy but great view. In the morning, it was great to be able to walk down and find a spot right on the beach. The service at... More

For the price of the hotel, this is a good place to stay at. Don't expect anything fancy though, it's extra simple with parts breaking all over the place. The staff is extra nice and friendly. They have lockers on request which makes you feel a bit secure. Not sure about now, but the internet was only available in the... More

This place is bare bones, but in the right spot in Vallarta. Wake up to breakfast with your toes in the sand on the beach 'Playa Los Muertos' with beach lounges & Palapas(umbrellas). Free Wireless Internet access and free computer use in the lobby. We didn’t eat more than breakfast at Si Señor Restaurant & Beach Club, but wish we... More

Very clean, friendly staff, but can use some updating. I would recommend getting the Standard Suite with an Ocean View. There is a restaurant downstairs, which gives hotel guests a 10% discount. There are many good restaurants within a 4 block radius

we ask for a suite in the upper floors in the reservation we did not get.no swiming pool, no parking for rented cars is a problem.for the price you can get better deals at other hotels that at least have a parking space and a swimming pool

This is an older style, Mexican owned and run Hotel. The staff are very nice and the maids are great! If you’re lucky, Isobel will be yours. The rooms are Spartan and spotlessly clean, but some folks might not like the mismatched tile or the funky mismatched furniture. The rooms are an amazing value for the money, but be prepared...

The hotel staff are great. The rooms need an update. The doors are paper thin and offer almost no security to outside threats. My door frame was in terrible condition and they need to be replaced with solid wood/steel with dead bolts. Only chains very available. No in room safe but security boxes are in the lobby. Wifi in lobby... More
