Mar Azul has the best location. All the rooms have a balcony over looking the ocean. Wonderful way to wake up in the morning. The staff of Eliud and Arullio are the best. Very accommodating and eager to give recommendations. The pool was perfect and they have the best massage on the beach for only 200 pesos which is around... More

Pros: This hotel is well located in the middle of the Costera. A 6 peso bus ride in one direction takes you to Walmart, and in the other direction you can ride all the way to La Caleta Beach or before that you can get off at the Zocolor. As far as I know, each “room” is actually a suite... More

If you're looking for a place to have a great vacation, look no further than Mar Azul in Acapulco. First they have a book in each room that previous guests have given their opinions of local cuisine and areas of interest, very helpful. The place is very clean, the staff are very friendly and helpful especially Eliot at the front... More

My husband and I stayed at Mar Azul 11-2/11-9-2013. The staff at Mar Azul were friendly and helpful in every way. Staff members are informative about the area and will point out the must see locations. We use public transportation, walked the main streets, shopped in local shops and always felt safe and welcomed by all. The view from our... More

This is a great resort, right on the beach. They have a great little pool and hot tub, refreshing after a hot day. There is a guy there that makes the best homemade fries you will ever on this planet!! You ask for an order of fries, and he literally cuts the potato in front of you and cooks it... More

This was our second visit to WIVC Mar Azul Acapulco and, although I believed that nothing could top our first stay, I was wrong. Both Eliud and Aurelio made my wife and I feel as though we were returning home to family rather than vacationing at a timeshare. If there were such a contest as “Best Desk Clerk of the... More

Mar Azul is an amazing time share. It is located right in the middle of the bay in Acapulco right on the beach. It is right in the mix of things, not too commercialized though and that is nice. The weather is always sunny, hot with a nice breeze off of the water. The condos are always clean and comfortable.... More
