What a great place to get away from it all, yet still have all of the creature comforts. This was my third trip to Pie de la Cuesta, but my first stay at Hotel Gilda. I highly recommend it, and found it to be a step above the other places I have been in the area. It is on the... More

The staff is friendly, especially the owner. Breakfast and dinner were very good. There are no good restaurants or bars in the area. But if you search for a place where you can walk down the beach, visit the laguna and spend a quiet evening, you are right here. Unfortunately, you can not swim at the beach. The waves are... More

Thank you John for your critique. Certainly we try to please our guests as much as possible. As you came very soon after the 2 hurricanes that brought so much rain to our region everything was still a bit humid and so the handcarved wooden furniture had a smell of damp wood mixed with lineoil. As you remember it was... More

We were aware when we booked this hotel that it was more expensive than the other Pie de la cuesta accommodation options, but assumed from the price, photos and reviews that it would be worth it. It was not. A place can be basic and shabby, but charming if it is cheap. However, the prices at Gilda are comparable to... More

I am very sorry that you did not like your stay . As you booked the most expensive room with kitchen , the idea is that people cook their own food. Our other rooms are much less expensive. Taxis some times come from Acapulco to pick you up, that is why prices vary so much . Wish you the best... More

Been to Gilda's a few times now and would heartily recommend it to anyone looking for a friendly, peaceful atmosphere in the greater Acapulco area. Although remarkably close to downtown Acapulco (except in traffic), Gilda's might as well be on a different planet. The beach in at Gilda's can only be described as tranquil – no beach vendors, no spring... More
