Hotel in Old Puerto Vallarta charms with tropical rooms
Emperador Hotel & Suites enjoys a base in the heart of Old Puerto Vallarta just a few minutes away from downtown and the airport. And with Playa Los Muertos directly outside one of its towers, the hotel offers instant appeal for travelers who want to stroll to El Malecon. Inside, rooms, suites and some spaces have kitchenettes. A coastal contemporary restaurant send visitors into paradise.
Highlights
  • A tower offering a choice of room layouts
  • Si Senor Restaurant and Beach Club for Vallartense fare
  • Some rooms with kitchenettes and beach views
  • Free Wi-Fi
Rooms
For a modestly sized hotel, Emperador Hotel & Suites presents ample choices. The property caters to short-term or extended-stay visitors with clean, Mexican-inspired spaces stocked with various necessities. Standard hotel rooms, which come with a shower, TV, telephone and one king bed or two twin beds, accommodate two people. Larger groups find comfort in suites and junior suites. The larger spaces enable guests to save on dining expenses by cooking in the kitchenettes. Mexican Colonial-style dining tables and views of the Romantic Zone add to the coastal bliss.
Features
Emperador Hotel & Suites guests revel in the ocean setting -- especially from its lounge chairs. Palm trees, cabana-style patio tables and a brick patio add to the atmosphere. For a change of scenery, patrons can also take advantage of the private beach or palapas (open-sided, thatched-roof huts).
Dining
The romance of Banderas Bay plays out every night at Si Senor Restaurant and Beach Club. The all-day restaurant sets up front-row tables on the sizzling Playa Los Muertos, where the ocean views are as delicious as the frosty Michelada brews.

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 seƱor" 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.

We had three fabulous weeks at the Emperador Vallarta in PV. The ocean views were spectacular. Woke up to whales and dolphin watching from our outdoor patio kitchen. The staff were kind and hardworking; many of the staff spoke more English than we did Spanish so that was really helpful. The hotel is in the heart of the romantic zone near the peer, so it was walking distance to almost anywhere we wanted to go. A taxi stand was right around the corner, there were two laundromats within a block, which was great for longer vacations. Terrific restaurants seconds away from the hotel. The rooms are old but are kept clean. The shower in our room required repairing, but we had lots of water pressure. The king size beds were replaced during our stay, so that was a real plus! The downside I guess would be that the hot pool on the roof top patio was not operational and there was not a pool to use. This was not an issue since the beach was directly outside the back door. Overall we had a great experience and look forward to our next visit.

Very Nice Place

It was a great place to stay. I love that you could walk right onto the beach from the hotel. The people were very pleasant and helpful. The next time I'm in PV I'll def have to stay here. Its worth the price.

La Palapa and Si Senor are two really good restaurants. A bit pricey but the quality of the food was amazing.

Great location for the price

It was a great place to stay since it was so close to the beach and all the nice places to eat and go out to have drinks. It was on a quieter street far enough from the loud hot spots. The staff was friendly and the rooms were simple yet clean.

Bring your soft drinks and/or beer from Oxxo and have them at the beach at much cheaper prices.

Second stay and will go again.

This was my second stay at Emperador. For the price, the room and location can't be beat. It's a great value as the rooms are clean, comfortable and close to everything. The interior rooms are a good deal if you're only there for a couple days, otherwise upgrade to a suite for a great ocean view. The staff - Claudia, Ian, Danielle and Mario are sweet & very helpful. You can certainly stay at beautiful all inclusive resorts with jacuzzis, pillow top mattresses and more conveniences, but you can do that anywhere. I'm a fan.

Ask the staff for local places where they eat - or do not eat. Most all local restaurants are pretty good. Try the smaller restaurants for more local flavor.
