Perfect choice for a relaxing week on a spectacularly beautiful beach. Great restaurant right out front; clean comfortable suite overlooking the beach; old town right behind & malecon just a short stroll down the beach. If you're not interested in all-inclusive/ Americanized resorts, Emperador is a great choice.

My wife and I spent two weeks here and loved it! Great beds, clean rooms and private patios that had a small kitchen. We saw dolphins daily while sipping coffee on our balcony and enjoying the view of the new pier. We will be back text year!

This was a fabulous little hotel. While it was older and less modern, it was kept VERY CLEAN. Our room was AMAZING on the 3rd floor with a huge balcony that overlooked the beach. The bed was much more comfortable than what it looked. There was a nice table and chairs on the balcony was well as an outdoor kitchen.... More

We stayed at two hotels on our first trip to PV, this was the first one. We were greeted and things stared rough, we booked a room with a single king (or queen) sized bed and we were told that it wasn't available and we had to stay in a 2-bed room. Since we were tired and just wanted a... More

We decided on a non-all inclusive stay this trip. We chose this hotel for its location and the fact that it's on the beach. We had a room with a living area. A mid-size rusty fridge was in the living area too. Our deck had a kitchen table with chairs (all old - would've been nice to have a patio... More

Stayed here two weeks feb ,14; fourth time staying here. Been coming to PV for 30+ years and have stayed all over. Hotel zone, marina, and zona romantico. This simple hotel hugging the beach is my favorite. Constant improvements are welcome. Best rooms are the standard suites, they have outdoor living spaces ( so much bigger than a balcony) with...

I have to say, the Emperador was a great value!! The location can't be beat, I walked to everything. I booked a junior suite with a great ocean view. Make sure you spend the extra $$ and get a suite.

My husband and I just returned from 12 nights at the Emperador. We knew from reviews that it was basic...but DID expect a shelf to put food, dishes, etc. There was a cabinet outside that the sink was in, but didn't feel comfortable using that for dishes, used a shelf in the open wardrobe instead. There was one sofa table... More
