Situated in a quiet area of Acapulco, high on a hill, you are treated to world class views of both Acapulco bay and the Pacific ocean. With 24 hour security, we felt safe the whole time. It is family owned and quality of service is all 1st class. Great restaurants & shopping within walking distance & plenty of taxis to... More

If you are looking for the real Acapulco, beautiful view, helpful staff, this is the place for you. Just minutes from the Zocalo and cliff divers. Rooms are spacious and clean. All rooms have A/C . Prices are very reasonable.

The best thing about this place is that Etel, the owner, is the great granddaughter of John Sutter, an important figure in California history. Never expected to get to meet someone like that! We went as two couples, and for about $100 a night got two bedrooms, a very decent-sized dining room/living room, and a big balcony with a table... More

I stayed at this hotel for 8 nights in November 2013. Although this hotel is not for everyone, some travelers needing inexpensive accommodations will find it quite comfortable and adequate. For $55 U.S. per night, I got a big room with a large veranda and a nice view of the hillside and ocean. The room and furnishings are rather dated,... More

Great place to stay if you want to commute over to new Acapulco and back to avoid crowds and other tourists. Kitchen in room, 3 gallon water bottles so your not always buying small ones. Great smiles and friendly service. Convenient stores at bottom of the hill. The hill takes about 3 - 5 minutes to hike, not the Everest... More

I have been staying at the Etel since 1998. My husband and I were married there in 2011. Senora Telvi was our wedding planner! She goes out of her way to ensure everyone is comfortable and well cared for. The staff at the hotel are also most helpful. The view from the balcony is fabulous! The Pacific ocean to the... More

My husband and I stayed at the Etel Suites in Acapulco after reading the good reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. The suites are not new but are immaculately kept and are spotlessly clean. The apartments are light and airy with balconies with wonderful views of the Acapulco hills and the bay. The location is convenient to... More

We stayed there for a night in Acapulco. The rate was $72 US for the night. They have a quaint clean pool that overlooks the city, and a wonderful rooftop with comfy chairs where we had beers and watched the city lights safely from afar. The rooms are very clean, albeit outdated. We had no tv but didn't need one.... More

Etel Suites are located on La Pinzona in Old Acapulco. It is a wonderful, spacious, friendly hotel located on a hill so you have a great view of Acapulco Bay and the hills to the north and the Pacific to the West. Tourists now favor the expensive high rises; so you can get a suite at a bargain price even... More

This is one of the cleanest, quietest and friendliest places in Acapulco, and the views are incredible. The hotel is built into the mountainside so the breeze and views are breathtaking. When we weren't relaxing by the pool we were walking to restaurants and other city areas and would occasionally take a cab to go to farther places.
