The Emperador is an affordable hotel beachfront hotel in the middle of the best part of town. The staff is friendly and good but the hotel isn't new. You get a bargain for the prices they charge. I've stayed there 5 times in the past. You can't expect it to be the same as upscale hotels that charge a lot more. I treat it as a dorm room, a place to sleep, but the point of the time there is all the stuff near the hotel at your fingertips.

Had a great view, nice room. Loud at night so bring your ear plugs. Close by bars and plenty of restaurant near by. Great showers with hot water. One complaint! The night staff Henoc is rude and disrespectful, no manners or professionalism what so ever! Started to yell and scream at me , i for got to put my mask on. I apologize but he kept on being rude. . Advised him i was going to tell his boss he stated he didnt care, . He needs to find another line of work

The staff was very nice and friendly. Especially Eloy. No pool, you had to check out towels for the beach. No microwave. Fridge worked great. Deck was too hot to sit on.
