“Still Get Your Money's Worth!”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We stayed at the Sister Hotel last year (Palma Mazas) an after spending a whole weekend looking for a cheap deal elsewhere, we decided to come back to what we knew but try The Emperador! Very similar to the other Hotel but smaller. Room was clean, a little dated but we only use it to shower and sleep. Staff lovely as always (especially the Man on Reception, he was very helpful when my Boyfriends money was stolen one night on the Beach!) Pool area clan and tidy, drinks pretty strong! Food was fine again, just a bit different to what us English are used to but there is always something for the pickier of eaters! Tip - there is a smaller beach to the left of the Marina, no 'Lookie Lookie' men or Fruit Sellers, appears to be the place the locals take their families.

We were expecting to be at the Palma Mazas hotel but on arrival were sent down the road to the Emperador. We had a really cheap, £158 each, half board package deal so were not expecting a luxury hotel. In fact some things were better than we have experienced in other hotels. The double bed was 5 foot wide and the mattress seemed fairly new and quite comfortable. There wasn't a TV but it made a nice change not to have one for a week. Our room overlooked the pool area which looked reasonably spacious although we never went there as we spent our days exploring the Island by bus, train and bicycle and prefer to swim in the sea. We didn't bother with the hotel breakfast but the evening meals were adequate with choice of salad, meat & fish dishes. The most shocking sight were the hugely piled plates of food that some people had! Altogether we thought it was an excellent deal and we had a great holiday.

The hotel staff were friendly, the outside looked great... The rooms.. Looked a bit 'hotel hell'. We pretty much just used them to store our belongings and to sleep so we weren't too bothered. The beds however, we VERY uncomfortable. All inclusive was fine, breakfast was dreadful but all other meals weren't too bad!
Location was good, not far from the beach and very close to Aqualand. Pool area was nice too.

Whilst I understand the comments others have made this is a budget hotel and for the price I guess its okay value.
Main problem for us is that its in a rather heavily filled 18-30 area and not really for families. The majority of guests in the area were German, Russian or Dutch, but to be honest they were no real trouble, just loud.
The hotel itself was tidy and clean enough but our room was not a family room. Tiny bathroom and 4 single beds crammed together. No air-conditioning and unless you pay for a fan the heat at night makes it almost impossible to sleep comfortably.
Staff were always polite and pleasant enough with rooms cleaned daily.
The food was very average and on some days it was better to pay extra and eat out.
But, if you were expectig much better quality I guess more would have been paid.

Well where do i start, well before u read this we had a range of ages in our party... my mum and dad both in there 60's, me and my partner in our 30's and my 10 year old son.. my mum and dad stayed at the hotel emperador.. and we were at the hotel palma mezas.. Both owned by the same people so u can use the all inclusive in both almost right next too each other.. The food was lovely ( well if u like repetative selection ).. but deffo worth the money.. rooms were basic, but what do u expect for the price... the staff on the other hand were exceptional, so polite and helpful.. even the maids were the best and so friendly.. the best thing about these hotels is that in the morning my mums hotel had the sun (AM) and ours all day through.. The rooms were clean and were cleaned my the maid loads though the 10 days we were there.. she loved placeing my sons teddys on the bed after she made it... reception staff, bar staff, maids through to the manager should get a gold star for the way they treat there guests.. As of alot of german/spanish guests.. yes a few times they were load, but not excessively and they were quickly told to lower the tone without a requst from us.... would i go back this hotel again..well dammm sure... we had a lovely family holiday and would have stayed there if we hadnt a flight to catch.. the 10 days flew by... love it and would go back again now..the water park is a 5 minute walk away and the beach a 10 minute walk away.. this is a brilliant hotel even if some people are whinging... i am coming back next year xx
