Best Things Nearby:Beach, shopping, restaurants, and nightlifeBest Things About the Resort:The best thing about the resort was the pool. We ate breakfast at the swim-up bar and sunbathed all day. Because the resort is built on a hillside, the pool offers a spectacular view of the bay.Resort Experience:The resort is built on a hillside, so some of the units require quite a hike from check-in. My unit was at the top of the resort. I was, however, shuttled with my bags to my room. My unit was for two, so there was plenty of space, as I was alone in the unit. The units for three are much better, as they have a private balcony with a private po...Read More

When I told friends from Mexico City that I was going to Acapulco, everyone told me that I could not go without going to the Palladium. We had a lot of fun. The women pay less of a cover charge than the men, and it allows you to an open bar all evening. We went, danced, and enjoyed the music until the wee hours. It was not, however, my favorite night spot in Acapulco.

Acapulco Beach

Attraction | "Beach"

Quote:
To be honest, I am not a huge fan of going to the beach. I much prefer to lounge at the resort pool when I am on vacation. The beach in Acapulco was fine, but it was not the nicest I have ever seen. It was very crowded, even though we were there a bit off-season. The water and the sand is also not as pretty as I have seen in other places, such as Cozumel or Belize.
