We just returned from our visit to Mar Azul. The resort is small and more private. We were able to meet some very nice guests. The service was second to none. Aurelio and Eliud were very helpful. Since it was off season, the restaurant/grill was closed. We really would have liked it I think. From the pool and hot tub... More

We stayed at Mar Azul the week of April 25th, 2015. We had a sprawling 2BDRM unit on the 5th floor overlooking the bay. The view is spectacular and Acapulco in general really impressed me. I'm going to start out by acknowledging a couple of people, move on to tell you a few things you haven't already read about the... More

Small hotel, clean, great service and close to services. We had a wonderful view of the Bay, and the pool and the beach. The pool is small, but has shallow and 5 foot end; also a hot tub. Their are plenty of chaise lounges, and a great area under palapas on the sand, right outside the gate to the beach.... More

Very clean, smallish hotel with a most helpful staff!. Eliud and Aurelio were really helpful at front desk! Really, anything we needed, they would help us find ....restaurants, taxis, pharmacies. Only downside is that there isn't a restaurant attached to it. However, there is a tiny bar near pool that serves great burgers and yummy french fries....till 6pm.

What a pleasant surprise! Over the years we've stayed in a few places, but we've never been right on the beach like this! We exchanged our timeshare week for a 1 bedroom unit. We were given a unit on the west side of the 8th floor facing the Acapulco Bay. We traveled the 3rd week of April, which is actually... More

The hotel is clean and comfortable, and the staff are all very friendly and eager to please. We had read posts from others before we arrived (and saw pictures) that the chaise chairs had no padding, so we brought with us the thin roll-up kind, and it made a huge difference. The sun deck has a large thatch umbrella for... More

We had a great stay at Mar Azul. The air conditioner kept our room very cool, the rooms and hotel itself was very clean, and the free Wi-fi was a bonus we didn't expect. It would have been nice if there were reclining lounge chairs closer to the beach and more selection of food items from the small snack bar... More

Great apartment style condo in the middle of everything you need. Restaurants, stores, anything you require is within walking distance. Beachfront property, great staff, and roomy accommodations for 2 adults and 2 teens. Also free WiFi , if needed. Would definitely recommend for a peaceful or fun vacation...we had both!

Unbelievable Fireworks display.I have been Vegas many New Years Eve's, the show here is better. Contrary to the new media reports, we feel very safe in Acapulco. the crime we hear about happens in towns over 100 km away from here. The Mar Azul is "the best". Small cozy place with very friendly and helpful staff . Nice little bar... More

We loved Mar Azul. A smaller apartment (timeshare) building on a quite side street with a fabulous view of the beach. It was quiet and very clean. Elliot was fantastic - so friendly and knowledgeable with great advice and suggestions. He contributed a great deal to our visit. Don't be concerned with all the media stories about Acapulco or Mexico... More
