I have stayed here 3 times now with my high-school students that I bring to Mexico. It has some amenities that are important for our group and much better than the other 4 or 5 hotels where I have stayed in Acapulco.
There is a large front reception area that is partially inside and partially outside. There is a long scenic driveway leading to the hotel and taxis with fixed prices waiting in front. These help with noise from the busy main street.
The hotel has seating and a bar area in front where many nights a live band provides free entertainment and students can dance to cumbia, salsa and merengue tunes. Also there are 3 pools, 1 set up for water volleyball, 1 with a waterfall and during the summer season, there are organized games and activities.
The beach is roped off and there are security guards to keep the hoard of venders out!!! This is something that I have not seen at other beaches. The hotel provides lifeguards and also organizes beach volleyball and soccer.
We buy a package through Funjet that includes a free pick up at the airport. This definitely has saved us money as the airport is a good 30 minutes from downtown Acapulco.
The next time I bring students to Acapulco, we wil definitely stay at the Acapulco.
