“Clean, great service and friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014 via mobile

Stayed with my whole family (19 in total)from the 5th of March until 12th. Staff is awesome, pool is clean and shallow for young ones. Adult pool is in different location with great privacy, security staff is very watchful which is very comforting. Great restaurants across street, just be careful when crossing road. Market is just down the street, fun the haggle and barter with different shop keepers. If I was to visit Acapulco again, I would not hesitate to pick the Emporio, it is right in the middle of everything. Surpassed my expectations for sure.

Stayed March 2014, traveled with family

Had the trip of my life with my sister and my mother. Our room in the 10th floor over looked the entire Bay of Condesa Beach and El Morro Beach... the heart of Acapulco, day and night the seeing was spectacular. My mom was so loved by every staff member always checking on her to make sure that she was enjoying every aspect of her vacation. My sister and I have been visiting Acapulco for a long time, but had not visited in at least ten years. We will never allow that to happen again, This hotel in glorious Acapulco provided for a perfect "soul-invigoration" by their kind, and strategic service. Delicious food, the best Zumba class ever with an unrestricted view of the bay. Taken care from head to toe! Thank you all for your wonderful service! Acapulco we plan to come back all the time... our soul-invigorating destination for now on!!! see you at the Acapulco Emporio 10th floor!

Love this hotel because i know the employees really well, and they always give their best. Some have to be encouraged to give their best, but in the end it is all good. What i have noticed this year is the quality of the guests has gone down. There were groups of quebec résidents, and frankly a rougher kind of crowd. This happens to hôtels when their specials get too generous. So it is something to keep in mind. The hotel was very clean, and the pools absolutely pristine. In fact it has the best pools in Acapulco, i have been returning to this hotel since 1986. The assistant managers are tops! I just wish i could meet in person this mysterious general manager that i have NEVER seen. It is hard to get business going with this hotel, as there were many times that i wanted to ask their sales department for a price for a ONE MONTH stay, never got it, and never went for one month... Instead i went to Las Brisas... (they were quicker to answer)... So i am returning once more next week, maybe that invisible General Manager will appear with a drink in his hand for me, so we can sit down and have a quick chat... :)

Room Tip: Choose a room on higher floors, as they are further away from the Noisy Streets..

my grandparents have stayed at this resort for years, so a few of us from the family tried it with them, however with new management they will not return. "Almost all inclusive means you pay for almost everything." Pools were great with a waterslide for kids, playa pireuta "kids club" is 90 peso's for the day as well as food and drinks to be paid for as well, your kids cannot come and go either. Once your into play, you stay all day. The rooms were nice with an oceanview (all rooms have the oceanview) however the new tower is better as the trees cause an obstruction in the old tower. The beach is rough on your feet and extremely hot to walk on during the day, the undertow in the water is scary as we couldn't even stand up as well as you have to pay for a cabana on the beach. The staff depending who serves you tries to help as much as they are allowed. I would have to recommend Cuba or Jamaica!!!!

Room Tip: Level 10 or above in the new tower for better view!

Truthfully a great experience. If i were to ask for anything it would be that they should include some nightlife to make it over the top 5 star hotel quality other than that this was EXCELLENT. People were always helping, super kind and very approachable. The facility was over the top, relaxing and nice. Of the 3 times i have been to mexico this was the best stay yet!

I returned to the Emporio, had previously posted pictures of heavy mildew build up on the shower curtains. This time, the room and curtains were perfectly clean! I really like the staff there, and in particular "Jose Luis" at reception - he will do whatever he can to make my stay better. This hotel will be perfect for you if you just want a nice room, and get to the pool, and get some beach time. However there are points this hotel has to "rework"... What happened to me this time, was that If one wants to rent a beach Cabana, at 250.00 per day, you have to get up and be in line at the beach at 7:00 am, as there will be a line of people waiting. I was staying there for 3 days, and asked the staff, and manager if I could reserve and pay for the three days, and was told a very firm NO. They only allow reservations for 6 days, which makes it difficult when a stay is under 6 days.
- The grounds were kept very clean, even though they just had a huge wedding party -
I will return for one day at the end of my stay in Acapulco. Unfortunately this hotel is turning into a "Travelodge" style of hotel... Far from the elegant Hyatt it used to be.

PS> while renting a cabana, rent one on the left (looking at beach), as service is much better and faster, as these cabanas are closer to the service point...
