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

We arrived at Mar Azul after a night at the incredibly rowdy Fiesta Americana and were blown away with how great it was. It's on a quiet side-street, with fantastic views of the ocean. The apartments (it is a timeshare exchange) were comfortable, if not luxurious, but had all we could wish for. We were agreeably surprised by Aurelio's orientation... More

I am not 100% sure if they are a hotel as I used a timeshare trade to use this centrally located property. The building is nestled off a busy main road on a quite side street with other residents. I felt right at home upon arrival and loved the feel of "living like a local". The staff is warm and... More

This is not a luxurious resort, it is just a comfortable resort with beach front view in the middle of old Acapulco city. We had an apartment with one master bedroom, one double bedroom, living room, kitchen and two bathrooms. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook and eat at home. Our balcony had front view. Pool is really small... More

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 first trip to Mx. Me and my bestfriend Lena take a trips for our birthday every year. Mar Azul was the trip this year for Lena's Birthday. It was our best trip ever, anywhere.
