We booked our room at Emperador for one night as we weren't able to get into our condo until the next day. We really had no expectations except that it was (hopefully) clean. We encountered some oddity's that perhaps veteran Emperador guests are aware of such as no glasses and no ice in the fridge. In fact the fridge was... More

This is our Fourth stay at the Emperador, we love the location, right on the beach and close to everything. If you read many of the past reviews, you will see one of the biggest complaints was no WiFi in the rooms and was only available in the hotel lobby. Well as of this week they now have WiFi in...

Loved my ocean front room with large patio. The room and bath were simple, white, and basic; consistent with the reasonable rate I was paying. Housekeeping was very good, and the front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Free Wi-fi was only in the lobby, which is nice when on vacation. My friend's non-ocean view room on the back of...

I looked around for hotels and finally made the choice for this hotel. I stayed there 4 nights. Great location and outstanding customer service. Very attentive checking and through out my stay. Henoc and Claudia are awesome as well as the other staff. Definitely coming back! The only down side is that there is no pool, but you are right... More

We got a junior suite with ocean view. Great view of the pier and beach from room 302. Beds were comfortable although pillows were a bit stiff. Housekeeping was amazing leaving a towel designed animal each afternoon with creative style! Downfall was the elevator only accommodated 4 small people and stopped relentlessly on the 2nd floor every time with nobody... More

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
