I booked and paid Expedia for a Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, 15 day vacation, hotel and flights, on February 2, 2020. On April 17, 2020 I received an email from Expedia that my flights to Mexico had been cancelled due to Covid-19 and a travel credit had been issued. At this time there was no mention of a credit for my hotel (Emperador) even though I now had no means of travelling to Mexico. I contacted Expedia and they told me that my booking was non-refundable but they would contact the hotel on my behalf, which they did. Expedia's response was they they had arranged with the hotel (Emperador) in PV to honor my paid reservation until December 2020. As everyone knows, the Covid-19 pandemic continued to rapidly deteriorate after that. As such I was not able to travel before the end of 2020. I contacted the hotel (Emperador) directly to see if I could possibly extend my credit until May of 2021 and was able to make arrangements for that to happen. I was tentatively re-booked for 15 days starting May 18, 2021, but once again I was not able to travel due to government Covid travel restrictions, and will not be able to travel at a later date in 2021. On April 2, 2021 I tried to contact the hotel to let them know I will not be showing up again and find out if I had any options. I have not received so much as a reply. I have subsequently sent 3 more emails with no reply. I can only assume that my $1200.00 is long gone. I realize that this has been a very trying and stressful time for everyone around the world but, hotel providers like Emperador have to realize that abhorrent service during this hopefully once in a life time event will have consequences. The pandemic will end and travel will resume but people will remember the businesses that stood by their clients that pay their wages and bills but more so, the companies that screwed them over. Taking money and providing ZERO services should be illegal regardless of how much fine print you put in your documents. NOTE: I did not stay at the Emperador but had to check a box to submit this review.

Excellent location. Plus a good price. I'm enjoying it for 4 days. In this lovely place. Puerto Vallarta. And the hotel is close to restaurants bars. Small boutiques. Plus in from to Playa Los Muertos. Better impossible. I have an excellent view and the room good size too. The only negative wifi is terrible. But better. More time to enjoy the place. Sometimes things happen for a reason.

Lovely older Mexican hotel, right on the beach with great views. We had a balcony facing the ocean, lovely afternoon breezes and fantastic sunsets. Oxxo is right across the street for grabbing beer or snacks for the room. Staff were friendly, room was very clean Location is the best, if you like great restaurants, Si Senor is part of the hotel and the beachfront restaurant serves good food at reasonable prices.

First when we got there, they wanted to give us twin size bed when we had asked for a king size. The mattress was set in concrete so it was really really firm, the bathroom was tiny, you had to flush twice for everything to go, the TV didn’t work, and they were cockroaches in the bathroom.

As many of the previous reviews - the Emperador has a great location and extremely good value - but is a bit dated and tired. We had a king standard suite - which had a very large room and balcony. The hotel has a tapered footprint, and our balcony was slightly set back, but looking at the room layouts, although the other rooms have balconies with a bit better angle they are not as big as the “01” king standard suites. The bathroom is small - especially taking into account the size of the room And space available - but from the layouts it looked that all the bathrooms seem to have a similar layout. As well as having a tight layout, the bathroom is old and crying out for an update. We found the kitchenette on the balcony very useful, and cooked breakfast a couple of mornings. But the thing that the hotel has is the location - at a very good price. We loved sitting on the balcony - and watching the view and the goings on on the beach. We walked on the beach every morning, and the Malecon mornings and evenings. Overall - it is tired and past it’s prime - but a great location at a very good price.
