The Grand Mayan is an excellent resort to which we would be very happy to return someday. I'd say we're pretty choosy when it comes to our vacation accomodations. Some places we've stayed include The Four Seasons in Kona, Cap Jaluca in Anguilla...many/most of the RCI Gold Crown resorts are not places we would consider to be "posh". Though the Grand Mayan has what we consider to be some relatively small flaws, overall this is an excellent resort. It is meticulously maintained. It is very well designed and thought out in terms of the layout. (The kids pool area is on the south side of the property, with only 1 way out/in, so it's easily protected, and separated from the rest of the pools by the beach service building where food/drinks were provided to the pool area wait staff.) The finishes/fixtures are beautiful and modernized. Housekeeping was excellent. The pools were outstanding. The sand on the beach is like talcum powder (but HOT so bring sandals) and the water warm. There was a long sandbar in front of the resort making for really great boogie boarding. (December in Acapulco has excellent weather, and a bit of surf. Rainy season is about May-early Nov.) Lots of rentals on the beach, including 4 wheelers, horses, boogie boards, surfboards. I didn't see wave runners. You'll need to go up to Acapulco Bay if you want to do that, I think. Cyber Cafe, Mondo Arcade, and the disco with pool tables were very entertaining in the evening. This is an EXCELLENT choice for families travelling with small children and teens, but it's NOT a kiddie-resort by any means! I could see a couple here on their honeymoon as well since Acapulco is really a romantic and scenic place. Somehow even though the resort was booked 100% for the holiday, we never felt like it was all that crowded (except occasionally by the pool). And our experience with the staff is that if you treat them with kindness, friendliness and respect, they will likewise treat you in this same way. We had only very positive experiences with every staff and housekeeping person we met. As owners at a different property in The Registry Collection, we were entitled use of all the facilities including the Brio fitness center and spa, as well as the lazy river. Otherwise there would have been fees to use these facilities.
outstanding in every way, became a good friend, baldo G.omez. Immediately responsive to every email prior to our trip to coordinate with us. Punctual and reliable for every pickup. Knows the places to go, and the right people to get the best tables, reservations, stores, etc. He made suggestions but never pushed an agenda in any way. His English is better than many native speakers. His vehicle is spacious, and air conditioned. He is extremely pleasant and respectful. And most importantly, Baldo is a Mexican licensed/certified tour guide, which is a credential that took him 3 years to achieve. Additionally, he's a fifth generation Acapulcan native, which means he really knows his way around, and all the people to meet/avoid.You won't be disappointed. firstname.lastname@example.org. His rates are very reasonable. Before booking with any driver (and you really MUST get one in Acapulco) you should ask them if they are licensed in this way. His city tour was wonderful and Baldo knows the history of Acapulco in great depth, if you want to hear about it. Not all the drivers are allowed into the porte cochere at the Grand Mayan for pickup/dropoff. Baldo is permitted. Otherwise you need to traverse down to the taxi stand on the street outside the resort to meet your driver. Very inconvenient, trust me. Contact Baldo.
