I went to Quinta Real for my honeymoon. My husband and I fell in love with the place the moment we saw it. It is beautiful. The rooms were very big and nicely decorated. The food was very good but kind of pricey. The service was excellent. Everyone was extremely nice. The pool and the beach were gorgeous (huge waves).

BEWARE!!!!! DO NOT waste your money on the stupid Shot Over boat ride. (Not part of QUinta Real) It used to be on a nice river in Acapulco, but they changed the location to a glorified drainage ditch. You basically waste 30minutes on a stupid boat that sprays you with sulphur smelling water. Do not waste your time or money.

I would go back to Qunita Real in a heart beat. I loved it there. I recommend this place to anyone going to Acapulco.

My fiancee and I went here for the week including Valentine's Day 2004 and absolutely adored this wonderful resort. The scenery and the hotel are magnificent. You have to drive up this hill/cliff to get to it, and has an outdoor open air lobby. You walk down the stairs from the lobby to your rooms. It really is beautiful. The people who work here are genuine, and very helpful. Our room was a HUGE suite that was immaculate, and had a little pool on the balcony overlooking the pacific. Room service was always immediate, the restaurant was excellent, though the wine choices were rather limited and very expensive, but this was the case everywhere we went. The pool area is possibly the very best part--it is gorgeous. There are numerous pools with plenty of seats, someone follows you to your seat and puts the towels on it for you. All day people serve drinks to you at the pool. We also did a spa treatment, and it was really nice, though not really completely what we are used to in the US. We did not have one complaint about our stay and would recommend it to anyone.

My husband and I just returned from a 6 day/5 night stay at the Qunita Real. It was a wonderful getaway. We booked the trip on expedia and were pleased. The rooms are very nice - marble tile and nice decor. The atmosphere is great around the entire resort. We were drawn to Quinta Real because of reviews about the top-notch attentive staff. It may have been the language barrier, but we found the service to be inconsistent. In the main restaurant, the food wasn't very good, and at times we were the only people eating, and the service was very slow.
One night we made dinner reservations through the front desk, only to find when we got to the place that we didn't have a reservation. The pool-side food and service was generally good. The in-suite service was great, and the turn down service is a nice touch. The pool is beautiful. The weather was perfect - mid-80' with a pleasant breeze.
The ocean was great - big crashing waves. The beach area in front of the Quinta Real is scenic, but directly adjacent is a public beach area that can get very crowded. You can position yourself toward the cliff so you see the ocean crashing on the rocks though. If you like sunsets, you'll be disappointed. Because Quinta Real is nestled in a cliff, the sun goes behind it around 5:30 p.m., so the pool and beach area are in the shade. The pool is warm though, and you can walk down the beach to stay in the sun. We went to two very good restaurants: Bakal, an upscale international restaurant and Su Casa, a hacienda off the beaten path in downtown. If you venture out, ask how much the taxi will be before you leave. We had very inconsistent fares. If you set on a price before heading out, you're much better off. The average cost one way to downtown is around $14. If you go see the famous cliff divers at the El Mirador hotel in Old Acapulco, do not eat dinner there. The food was horrible and was a flat fee of about $80. Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves. We were looking for relaxation and found it in a fantastic setting at Qunita Real. Also, the locals seem to have a lot of pride in Acapulco, which is nice.

The Qunita Real is a lovely hotel; private and perfect for a romantic getaway. We stayed there for two nights in 2002. Our room had original Mexican artwork, hand-carved leather chair, beautiful marble bathroom and a gorgeous ocean view with balcony (and we did not get the most expensive room). It was meticulously clean . The food was good as was room service, and the staff attentive but not obtrusive. They greeted us with complimentary champagne as we checked in. The hotel's private beach is kind of small, but they have a pool just feet away from the ocean that's very nice (there are better beaches at the Pierre Marques hotel just down the road, if that's what you want). But if you are looking for a quality hotel that is not mobbed with American tourists, the Quinta Real is an outstanding choice. The place was restful and gorgeous. I would definitely go back.
