My wife and I and other friends have been going to this fabulous resort for over thirty years and it just keeps setting the bar for other travel destinations. Acapulco has received some bad press, as has much of Mexico, but in all our trips to the Princess, we have had not a single worry. And over the last three... More

First things first, make sure to join the presidents club before this will make your stay better due some perks applied to members (free wifi, access to the gym, etc, etc) Now, the room; neat clean, spacious, well ventilated, great light, rustic furniture (very mexican) AC, no flat tv, cable +/-, small ref. The beach is a bit packed by... More

Spent one night last week at the Fairmont Princess Acapulco and it is still the best. Although it is not in Acapulco bay itself, it is the best option for a convenient no frills stay. Comfortable and updated in the new Princes Tower, as good as places twice the price.

great hotel. The location was amazing. Very clean well maintained hotel. It's exactly what you would expect from an Fairmont. Lots of shopping in the area. The tennis courts are great. The golf course is amazing. I will be staying there again next year.

This hotel is a great place to vacation with kids and family as well as in copules.. Has greta restaurants, fabulous pools, services, etc. The only down side is the waiting time for the valet parking (That is in case you have a car).. Otherwise very well reccomended

Stayed for a week late December and new years. Hotel is old. Inaugurated in 1971. However, it is still the best. Everything in rooms, amenities, pools, beach are amazing! Cons: - Valet parking is at an extra cost - Internet Wifi is at extra cost and does not work very well

The hotel is quite old, and has not been renewed in a while. The common areas do not support the amount of guest the hotel can. We needed to wait 20 mins for towels because they were out. You cannot park your own car, or you can but need to walk for a while. The pools are terribly cold, you... More

Great location, the pools are safe and very enjoyable for kids and parents. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms can use an update, specially the bathroom and a flat screen tv. Toiletries in the room are top notch.

Excellent service and still amazing location, however, rooms required urgent maintenance, this Fairmont Hotel should not have any room in the conditions I found mine. Old furniture, poor maintenance, I can say I found some dirty areas in the room.
