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...

This hotel did what it needed to do: Clean beds in a safe neighborhood on the beach. It is a little old, but it's not falling apart. The only obvious sign of neglect were the remains of what used to be a hot tub on the roof patio, which is a great space to get away. It could use some...

I like that its located right on the beach. Last visit i twisted my ankle the first day and being able to take the elevator down and just one flight of stairs and thru the basement to the sand really helped. Big hotels I'd of never made the walk to the beach. They had nice covered lounges and brought food...

Our Double Junior Suite was a good size with a full size fridge in the room and stove, coffee maker and sink on our ocean front balcony. The views were awesome. Room was...

We reserved this hotel on line, through expedia. The room that we got was so nasty and dirty I just told them to keep the money and we stayed next door. I mean, I am not that picky... the bathroom was just way too creepy. Maybe it was just one of the cheaper rooms? I dont know - it was...

We booked our reservation through Expedia not knowing what to expect. As it turned out we should have stayed longer at the Emperador. The location is great - right on the beach/pier and close to many restaurants and bars. Definitely would recommend an oceanview room - they have a large balcony with outdoor kitchen. We didn't actually use the stove/sink...
