Best place to have an amazing meal, The staff went above and beyond to help you and serve the best they can. The seafood is probably the best grilled seafood I've ever had

We stayed at the hotel right by the rocks, lots of chairs, clean place, prices on beverages were average but we found out that this is where the gay population meet so if you do not get bother by gays modeling around at all times, this place is cool and interesting. All kinds of water sports around.

This stretch of sand is always packed with people, and the beach has some coarse sand, but the views from here are beautiful!!

From Paradise down to the Fiesta Americana many families and friends gather to spend some time at this beach. The rock formation just where the fiesta americana is allows for a pretty calm swim but closer to Paradise restaurante it can be very rough with a strong undertow. Use caution when swimming here.

We've been going to Acapulco every, Feb 2014 will be our 29th in a row. We've always stayed along this beach, last 20 at Playa Suites. The view is beautiful both during the day and at night. Best part for us...the Cross on top of the mountain where we were married in 1995. A must see if you go to... More

I have sat on this beach over 100 times and always enjoyed the people watching and friendly staff that surrounds the many restaurants located here.
