We really enjoyed our visit here Feb.18-24th. For us it was well worth the Suite (rather than std. room): King size comfortable bed, very clean and a oceanfront room. A very nice staff. It's important to stress that this was perfect for us...why ???? We went to Los Muertos Beach every day plus we ate out every night. So if... More

The accommodation included a kitchenette.The hotel is in a great beachside location and the staff were very friendly and helpful during our near three week stay her. The living area is very comfortable and shower and bathroom are very good and clean. However the kitchenette which is situated on... More

We had a fantastic time at the Emperador, The front staff were helpful, they had computers to use free as well as free wifi in the lobby, my sister had a room close to the lobby and received wifi in her room. The rooms are plain but comfortable and well worth the price I thought, our room was clean with... More

We stayed here 4 nights in December 2014, thought that it was good value for the cost. We paid a little more for an ocean-side room which was worth it for the private patio and breezes. It's definitely a local place, a little dated, but we prefer this flavor when we travel. Location was off the beaten path so we... More

Very, very nice and polite and RESPECTFUL.....that is what Mexico is... More

Vallarta is quite spread out, therefore choose your stay based on where you want to be and what you want. Emperador is near the beach and has rooms with and without views, with and without kitchenettes. It is old with single pane windows and you will hear all noise. You will have walking access to all the areas and restaurants... More

We had a wonderful house booked for a week in Vallarta and needed a place for two extra nights. Having never stayed in many hotels in Vallarta, we chose the Emperador. The rooms are so sub par...they are really dirty...especially the bathrooms...and they just don't have many amenities for travellors...no ice, outdoors kitchens etc...the doors did not have security locks...

This location is a great place. However, the amenities and service were sub standard. If you like a nice place, don't book here. Noise and security was a serious concern. There are no deadbolt locks yet the halls are open and accessible to visitors or others roaming the halls. I'm glad I didn't have my kids with me as I... More

A return visit for 24 nights in December did not dissapoint. A email, resulted in our receiving our favorite room, hanging over the beach and shaded from the afternoon sun by a palm tree. We spent our mornings enjoying organic coffee purchased from the Saturday farmer's market, and brewed in our small kitchen on our balcony, watching the beach come... More
