    Good location

    The staff was very friendly. The rooms were cleaned well. Location was excellent. We were upgraded to a oceanview balcony because our type of room was not ready so that was really nice on their part. Had a great experience.

    Budget hotel in great location

    A great hotel if you must want the basics... the best rooms to get are the standard suites which have a large balcony over the beach with a kitchenette and table/chairs. They now have wifi in the rooms. No pool, but a nice roof deck for lounging. Everything is very clean and staff is great. The location couldn't be better if you enjoy the gay life in the Romantic zone.

    PV getaway

    This was the second time I've stayed at the Emperador. The staff is wonderful, very accommodating, and the location was perfect for me. I prefer the south end of town and the hotel is near many wonderful restaurants and located directly on the beach. The wifi connection when I was there was pretty good, but a couple of evenings kept going out. This was unfortunate because I was trying to change some plane reservations and the connection kept going down. Very frustrating. The restaurant downstairs was pretty good, nothing special, and most of the staff very nice, but a couple were bad enough to make me stay away. There are other, better places along the beach.

    Wonderful surprise

    In spite of the low number of stars, and my reluctance in the past to give this hotel a try, I had a very good experience at Emperador. The front desk staff was great, the room very nice, and with a great view, and it is in my favorite part of Vallarta. I would only wish there was WiFi in the rooms, and that the cleaning staff was better about cleaning the bathroom.

    Dining tip: In Hotel

    The Bohemio restaurant is excellent, the Coffee Cup very nice, and the health food restaurant (one block east, turn right) are all within a block and wonderful.

    Another stay at Emperador

    This was my third stay at the Emperador in three years, and it hasn't changed at all. The rooms are clean and large. I had a standard suite which had a huge king bed, love seat and tables with a kitchenette and table with four chair out on the balcony overlooking the beach. This hotel remains the best value for a hotel right on the beach and in the middle of Old Town. Staff is great, and Ian at the desk is always ready to help with a friendly smile and greeting. I will continue to use this hotel as my home in Vallarta.

    budget on beach... location

    Good hotel for location in the Romantic Zone, right on the beach near the pier. No frills and good value. Basic rooms are spartan and not comfortable with no view, but cheap. Deluxe suites are large with balcony and kitchenette and ocean view. Junior suites are a little larger. I usually go with the deluxe suite with king bed and kitchenette and dining table on the very large terrace overlooking the beach. Drawback is no pool, but beach is just steps away. Free wifi, but only in the lobby area and two computers to use in the lobby as well. Discount at the restaurant downstairs on the beach, but there are many cheaper options nearby. Just one block up to Olas Atlas and all the restaurants and gay bars. Blue Chairs is four blocks or a walk down the beach.

    New Pier

    Small Hotel with a great location. It has a nice view of new pier that looks like a 75' high sail that has changing lights. Nice remodeled room. Free web, just used their computers. No ice or coffee but there several options very close.

    Very good to relax but not good for night life.

    The hotel was clean and it had everything you would need for a relaxing beach vacation. the restaurant down stairs "si señor" has exquisite food and offers 10% discount if you stay at the hotel...they also have a great view of the sea. the only downside is that it's a little far from the airport but it's the perfect place to relax and enjoy water sports.
