We booked a one week stay at the Bayview Suites at El Presidente through Vida Lifestyles for the last week of January. Our confirmation came from RCI. (Hmm) We arrived and were ushered into a presentation room for the RCI salesperson to chat us up. Fortunately, the sales people on staff don't speak fluent English, so we were taken back... More

The service was great, food was good, and the room newly renewed. The best of its kind considering the price. Right in the center of Acapulco, where you can walk anywhere . Overall we had a relaxing and great stay right next to the beach with some coctails.

I had a suite here for a week... built in 1952... The owners make absolutely no investment to maintain this property. As the staff says this is a cash cow for the owners and nothing more.. The towels and the bed sheets had holes. You would think that if any room would get the best it would be the suites...... More

Well, this is my experience in this terrible hotel. I booked through a website for booking in this hotel and this site offered a good deal for a stay of three nights during the third weekend of December 2015. At least in Acapulco, El Presidente Hotel has a good reputation, when that booking site offered a good price for our... More

At night in the restaurant there was a tango show also very... More

We got a miramar suite which was huge with a very nice view overlooking the bay. The hotel is old but better than we expected since we read a lot of reviews. Location is very good food is nice but not extraordinary. People that work there were very nice to us.

This hotel has gotten some bad reviews. It is old but nice. We were on the 11floor and the room was very clean with a superb view of the water. The staff were all friendly and very helpful especially Norma the manager. It is located in a great spot to walk either way to shops. The pool area is nice... More

The hotel is old and unkept. It's filthy, rooms have mold, the linens are stained, things are broken, many things are in need of repair, and the service is slow and not helpful. It's pathetic and disgusting. To top it off they had no internet during our visit. NEVER STAY AT EL PRESIDENTE!!! We paid for 5 nights online and... More
