We've always stayed at either the Sea River Towers or the Velas Vallarta resorts, but this time we wanted to be downtown so we'd be right in the thick of things. After much research, we chose the Emperador. I was skeptical but the reviews here were pretty good. To our surprise, our room was perfect. We got the junior suite,...

When we travel, we like to be able to experience the culture of the area we are in and still be comfortable. This place fit the bill. On our first night, we had a ocean view room that was just over the restaurant. It was nice, but we could only see the ocean, not the beach and the A/C only...

We loved our stay at El Emperador. From check into checkout the staff was very accommodating. They went as far as to loan us money when we lost our wallet, bring towels and beach chairs down to the beach, they gave us a great deal on a extra night. The room had a great patio with a great view, the...

We have been going to Old Town in Puerto Vallarta since 1996. This was our first time at the Emperador and prior to leaving for home we made reservations for next year. We found the hotel extremely clean and the staff very friendly and helpful (especially Ian at the front desk and Isabella our maid). Our mattress was a bit...

We had not intended to stay at this hotel but were moved here and we were not at all disappointed. Our junior suite had a very large, beautiful balcony equipped as a kitchen with table and chairs overlooking the ocean and beach. Everything was very clean (really important to me!). The location is superb as it is near the Malecon...

the first night we arrived we were put in room 102 and it was a Jr suite but it had a wall that blocked our view and the bed was like a rock. So the next day we asked to see other rooms and were shown room 310, 411 and 309. We loved 309 as it had a great view...

This hotel is about what I have come to expect for a $15 a night hotel in the third world. Only this one is in Vallarta Mexico for $80 a night with tax. The curt staff assured me that if I didn’t like the first room, I wouldn’t like any of the others. They were right. Although it is beach...
