lodging options
Selecting the ideal Acapulco lodging option requires
an understanding both the lay-of-the-land and what
your individual clients expect in terms of amenities,
quality of service, price, and atmosphere.
Acapulco has more than 200 hotel choices and some
18,000 lodging units. But only a relatively small number
of these hotels are known to American and Canadian
travelers. This is somewhat ironic, since Acapulco is also
home to two of Mexico’s most recognizable and popular
hotels: the Fairmont Acapulco Princess and Las Brisas.
Acapulco Diamante: This includes Revolcadero

Beach and nearby Puerto Marques. Close in to the air-
Unlike Puerto Vallarta or Los Cabos, Acapulco has evolved
into a 75% domestic/25% international destination.
The typical tour operator carries 8-10 Acapulco properties—that tend to cater to American and Canadian clientele. That’s not to say that you won’t find good choices
beyond this short list. In fact, for value travelers, Acapulco
has Mexico’s widest choice of beachfront offerings. Just
be aware that a property with few US and Canadian visitors may operate with different service and facility standards. Do some extra research (at www.tripadvisor.com
or www.starservice.com), and your clients are apt to be
treated to some real diamonds in the rough.
Golden Acapulco: This refers to the heart of Aca
pulco Bay. These properties are either beachfront, or
picking a location
This is a critical part of your vacation planning service.
Remember, Acapulco is spread out along over 30 kms of
coastline. With traffic delays, transit times from one end
to the other can be lengthy. Book a client out in the Diamante area who expects the Acapulco Bay setting (or
vice versa), and you’re headed for problems. Become
familiar with the area’s layout to make sure you’re truly
suggesting the right lodging option for your client.

Acapulco hotel properties are concentrated in one of four
main areas. (Look for the area symbols under each hotel

port, this area has four terrific golf courses and some fine
beaches, but no shopping or dining outside of the hotels.
Large chain hotels and condo developments dominate
here. Remember, the taxi to Acapulco Bay will cost $20-25
each way and take 20-40 minutes depending on where
you’re headed. Beach swimming is ideal along Puerto
Marques, but often too rough along Revolcadero.
across the Costera boulevard on hills overlooking the Bay.
Guests here get easy access to beaches, shopping and
Acapulco’s legendary dining and nightlife. However, with
a few exceptions, hotels are in a very urban setting—with
traffic, people, neon signs, and round the clock activity.
Hillside properties offer some relief from these conditions, but can be remote from the action of the Costera
and the Bay’s safe swimming beaches. This zone is also
home to dozens of private homes and villas, especially in
the area around and below Las Brisas.
Traditional Acapulco: ah… for those seeking nos
talgia and an authentic encounter with Mexico’s original beach resort, this downtown area is the ideal choice.
Located at the Bay’s western end and engulfed by lush
vegetation, this area has but a few lodging choices.
Guests here have the privilege of staying where Hollywood’s elite vacationed over half a century ago. While a
bit past its prime, Traditional Acapulco offers a quiet and
less commercial atmosphere. Properties accessed by the
somewhat crumbling series of twisted hillside streets are

characterized by small hotels and spectacular Bay views. None of these hotels have beach frontage.
Pie de la Cuesta/Coyuca Lagoon: for the escapist! Located up the coast from La Quebrada some 20
30 minutes, this tropical paradise is rustic, laid-back and inexpensive. Forget about the discos and swanky
dinner houses. It seems like little has changed here since the 60’s, except for the crowds of visitors from
Mexico City during holidays and summer. The beach is wide, clean and gorgeous (though too rough for
swimming). Grab a hammock and a coconut gin, and watch the sun melt into the Pacific…
