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

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
