Acapulco Delight

A March 2004 trip to Acapulco by Scarberian

The spacious rooms, small wading pool on each balcony, artwork on the walls, prompt and attentive cleaning staff, and superb location will make this resort a vacation experience of choice for anyone who stays here. It’s 10 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from downtown Acapulco. This exclusive resort is situated in the diamante (diamond) region. The Mayan Palace grounds are well kept and feature amenities like the kilometer-long pool, beachfront property, golf course, and fine dining. We wanted to stay forever!

The Bakal restaurant on the complex features a different all-you-can-eat buffet each night (i.e. Italian, seafood, Mexican, etc.). They also have a menu from which you can order such things as steaks, sandwiches, salads, soups, and desserts, in both American and Mexican flavors.

The atmosphere is relaxed, with a wonderful view of the sunset of the ocean through the palm trees in the evening. The wait staff is prompt, courteous, and unobtrusive. If you want a great meal without having to leave the resort, this is an excellent choice. The restaurant is a bit pricey, though.
