Bang For Your Buck

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by a traveler from on April 28, 2008

I have been going to Acapulco for more than 30 years....Usually I rent a condo or an apartment, but.....I traveled on a last minute booking and chose the least expensive hotel offered. I like the Caleta section oif Acapulco because you can get away from the central hustle-bustle and have easy access to anywhere on the Costera for a few pesos on a bus if you're not in a hurry. Otherwise, you can get a taxi at any time. The room was very comfortable with a nice balcony view of the Bay and the Club de Yates just below...Keep in mind that I use my quarters primarily for sleeping as I like to be out and about all of the day. Didn't use the pools as I like to swim in the ocean but the looked fine and varied to age appropriate. The funicular is an interesting touch for transport down to the beach. The mini-mart is well stocked and as reasonable as those on the calle. My room included 2 comfortable beds, fridge, stove, a/c, shower and balcony. The staff was very helpful when needed and went out of their way to fill my few but important requests. If you are looking for a destination hotel this may not br for you, buy if you need a clean, comfortable room with a helpful could do a lot worse. I would return.
