We just finished our stay at the Emperador Beachfront Hotel here in Puerto Vallarta. We checked in on July 2nd and left today. We spent the 4th of July on an excursion and ate on the beach at the La Palapa. The hotel is located right behind the restaurant Si Senior and right next door to La Palapa. You also... More

Budget hotel on the beach, you can't go wrong, excellent location, great staff, very clean, economical price. The restaurant is wonderful, the beach is clean. The pier is so close, take a trip to Yelapa for $20.00US. for the day. We will stay here again.

This clean, economical hotel sits right on Los Muertos Beach, & we loved it! From Ian & Claudia at the front desk to Isabel the very artistic housekeeper, the entire staff was friendly & helpful. The bed was comfy, & we were right in the middle of the Zona Romantica with fabulous restaurants everywhere. We've just booked a return trip... More

The hotel is so homey and the people at the front desk will help you at all times! It has a super convenient location, the Malecon is just a short walk away! The only issue we had is that the wifi doesn't really cover the whole hotel, it's mainly in the 1st floor.

This place may be a little weathered but that's what comes with the location. Beachfront and access to the best part of Puerto Vallarta. Old town or the "Romantic District" is what it truly is. Great variety of food and culture just steps away. The maid keps the rooms very clean and the desk is always willing to help. Get... More

Fine oceanfront room with great view. Beach service fair, delivered by outside company. Not enough chairs. Restaurant had great food and close to many other fine restaurants. No pool or hot tub although the surf is mild. PV people are some of the nicest and friendliest people anywhere.

We've stayed at a lot of hotels on the beach in Old Town in Puerto Vallarta but we like the Emperador the best. The reasons are many, which include very reasonable rates for nice rooms with excellent views. This last time we stayed here, we were in a junior suite which had a great king size bed, and a nice...

We just spent a few nights, the staff were wonderful, room was clean, but very small. If I was going back or staying longer, I would book another room, with a balcony. Good value on our room. Would not recommend it for a long stay. Our door was tricky to close, it could be pushed open, you always had to... More

Front Desk people were friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Location was perfect with an outstanding view from our room. Rooms were very clean. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to stay in Old Vallarta and would stay again when I return. Lots of good restaurants and bars nearby as well as the Malecon - great for people watching!
