I spent a week there with my family. I stay there everytime I travel to Acapulco and I love it. It is always full of new surprises. This time the rooms where refurnished. It is a classic in Acapulco but with the advantages of a new hotel. The service has never been better. It also has the best beach spot... More

We bought a time share at Playa Suites and were very happy but time share management moved us to el presidente much to or... More

This was definitely not the best hotel we have stayed at in Acapulco. I would suggest doing more research and picking a better hotel. The hotel felt very tired and old. Refresh needed. The staff were helpful and rooms were clean.

AC need maintenance, TVs are old, beach is wonderful and location is their best asset. Pool is cold, umbrellas in pool area are urgently required El Presidente is requiring a renewal in services and furniture.

I read the reviews before I stayed at this hotel, but it was the only place available for the New Years holiday from RCI Resorts. The reviews here are spot on... The hotel is very old and very dated. It is poorly maintained. The history is that the owner died, left it to the kids, and one of the kids... More

This hotel is so old and dated it is literally falling apart - fixtures and fittings in our room were falling off the walls, and there was an electrical socket hanging by a wire right next to our shower. The beds were the most uncomfortable I have ever slept in, and the fridge didn't work. Even worse, there was no... More

I went with some friends for our graduation trip. We had had a long road trip so we wanted desperately to get in the pool. We were given a suite in the 12th floor, which we though was rather nice, since those suites are big and have a balcony. Deception started when we met the elevators and they were CLOSED,... More
