Our family (adult children) stayed at the Emporio from February 7 to 10th and then my husband & I stayed until the 16th. We would rate the Emporio at least 3 1/2. It was very clean, attractive, had fast elevators (our room was right at the elevators but never heard them unless right at the door), good location and fantastic staff. We did not have an all-inclusive or meal package and only ate once at the breakfast buffet. The food & selection was good but you could cross the street and eat for much less.
It was located close to all kinds of great restaraunts, shops, convenient stores, taxi/bus stop and only a few blocks from the market. The pool was busy day and night with families, activities and just cooling off. There were lots of shaddy palaps on the beach (nice sand) were you could relax with a drink, watch the surf or read. Watch out for the par-a-sailers if you brave the big waves - we seen the boats come thru the assigned swimming area more than once! Some nights you can take part in the release of baby turtles on the beach. The lobby bar often had live entertainment in the evening.
I can not say enouph about the staff at the Emporio. They were attentive, helpful, friendly, and always had a smile on their face. From housekeeping to the front desk, everyone was terrific. We ask for rooms close together and were give ajoining rooms. It was nice to just leave the ajoining door closed if you wanted some privacey and open if you didn't ... saved on a lot of door knocking. We had only booked rooms until the 10th but my husband & I had no problem extending our stay, getting resonable rates and were upgraded from a Mountain View to an Ocean View Room.
We enjoyed our stay at the Emporio!
