I arrive in the afternoon to check in. The front desk guy says he can upgrade me to the second floor for $12 USD cash. Ok no problem, I said yes. As soon as I asked him for a receipt for the $12 he panicked a little, started shuffling papers and gave me my money back. He then said he...

The Good: Easy peasy, it's the view. The suites are right on the beach overlooking the pier and steps from the Malecon. The sound of the waves, the cool ocean breeze, and the view from the balcony made this place worthwhile. The Bad: It's old and shows it. The balcony next to us was actually falling apart, Everything in this...

Okay I really hate writing a bad review, but this hotel was so bad that I would hate for someone else to experience what we just did. I'll start with the good: PRO- *Location is amazing! Right on the beach. Easy to walk everywhere. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby. No taxi rides needed! *The front desk lady and gentleman...

I have heard that the ocean-facing rooms/suits are better, but I was placed in a street-side room, and it was just horrible! What you seek from a hotel is a reasonably quiet and comfortable place to sleep, and that's not going to happen on a VERY noisy street protected by just a single-pane window. I had this feeling that I...

This little hotel is pet friendly (small pets). Service was great, it has the basics, no frills, very clean and chic decoration in the rooms. I love that they got rid of the old covers with flowers and opted for a more clean, one color (white) sheets and beige blankets. The restaurant, which is not part of the hotel but...

We spent a week in Emperador and have not a single complaint about this hotel. We had room 402, which is a jr ocean view suite...awesome view and clean room. Water pressure was very strong and had never had an issue with the hot water. Maid cleaned the room every day. I was actually surprised that we had no bugs...

I have never given a bad review in all my years of travel, but I just couldn't let this happen to another innocent family especially since the hotel refuses to give a refund despite being aware of the many unacceptable issues we faced during our stay in room 405. First, the noise made it IMPOSSIBLE to sleep. The hotel door...
