Kassieandjeff stayed here on Dec 16, 2013 during their trip titled: Kassieandjeff's Great Adventure.
... and saw everything in about ten minutes, so found the most local of local bars. Decorated with Cowboy hats, shelves of Mezcal and Tequila and rifles hung up on the wall, it was something out of the wild west, with one other drunk guy, and the bartender who had worked there nearly 30 years after having an accident with some machinery when he was younger. Stayed there pretty much the whole night as the bartender gave us shot after shot of Mezcal, fed us tacos and was happy to talk ...
We had a 5 hr wait in Acapulco for our overnight bus to Puerto Escondido. Both keen to see the famous cliff divers and not too sure how it would happen. But a lovely little mexican taxi driver Orlando took us under his wing and chauffeured us around for 4 hrs all for $20. Tourism in Acapulco has really suffered following the floods and people bombard you everywhere you go with 2 for 1 deals with accommodation and ...

Another amazing ride in...we finally arrived in Acapulco! Matthew and George were waiting for us, rounding out our crew at five. It's pretty hot and humid here, no surprise. First we anchored, now we are in a slip at the marina. Looks like some decent amenities.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Fairmont Pierre Marques Acapulco
In all honesty, I might have procrastinated in writing this review just because I'm reluctant to share the good news. I would so hate not to be able to get reservations next time! The Pierre Marques is a beautiful property. It's a quiet, relaxed setting and during our ten day stay rarely felt crowded.
This is definitely a place to go and relax. My husband and I were in Acapulco to attend a wedding and stayed at the Hyatt prior to coming to the Pierre, and what a major difference between 2 hotels! I am glad we stayed here the latter part of our vacation because we need to veg-out and this was what the doctor ordered. We stayed in villa 756 and the room was very clean and well maintained. Our request for privacy was respected and the staff was very attentive whenever we needed their services. We only dined at the LaTerraza for breakfast and lunch (we did not do a all-inclusive since I was staying there on a travel agent rate) and enjoyed the meals we chose. We did go to the Princess for dinner one night and tried the Veranda which offered a international buffet that night. Both properties were beautiful. The Princess is definitely geared more toward families, so I am glad we stayed at the Pierre. Another thing to mention, the beach vendors are not as plentiful on these beaches as they were all over you on the beaches at the Hyatt. As soon as you stepped on the sand there, they almost came running over covered with jewelry, blankets and whatever else they could carry. This will not deter a visit to Acapulco - but when we decide to return we will be staying at the Pierre, and take a cab into town if we want a change of scenery.
The hotel was nice....quiet during the day because most people golf. We went on an all-inclusive package that excluded more than was included. Beware. There are two restaurants, the buffet style being the only available in the all inclusive. Only certain drinks are included and instead of a wrist band concept, the staff follows you around asking you to sign a check. Your room number seems a requirement before you can even sit down and everytime you eat, drink or get a towel for the pool. You get the feeling you're being stalked until you give up your password . You are never really sure if what you are eating or drinking is included in the premium price you paid. Our room was average for Fairmont but seemed as if it was in the middle of a renovation when we checked in. During our stay, the rooms on either side were being renovated and the smell of oil-based paint was everywhere. You could not even escape it on the balcony. We paid extra for an ocean-view room and it was, but it also had a great view of the back door of the kitchen and the noise that accompanies it. We asked for another room but a better one could not be provided until 4 days into our stay and we were too settled in to consider moving. All in all, if you like a quiet hotel oriented to business groups and golf and you don't care about all-inclusive it IS a lovely property. We chose it because of the Fairmont name and Canadian ownership but we won't be returning to Fairmont Pierre Marques.
We just returned from a great stay, very relaxing. It was the slow season, which suited us just fine. The restaurants, bars & pools at both the Pierre Marques and its sister property the Acapulco Princess were very enjoyable. The staff at both properties was very friendly and helpful, and our room was a gorgeous corner room with a view right over the beach and the mountains to the side. Lovely stay, and we would do it again.
Quiet and comfortable and about 15minutes by cab from the hub-bub of downtown Acapulco. Excellent service and one of the best restraunts in the area. Beach a little disappointing, very busy with locals hawking things.
My girlfriend and I went here Jan 19th to Jan 25th 2004. What a beautiful resort. We went on a group trip with all breakfasts, diners and most drinks included so I'm not sure about the pricing. The food was delicious. The buffet breakfast has what most fancy resorts have.
Had a wonderful stay here. Loved the small hotel feel with the big hotel amenities. Especially since there is a free shuttle every 15 minutes or so to its sister hotel the Acapulco Princess next door that is a very large hotel giving you many dining, entertainment options, and more on top of those already at the Pierre Marques.
My husband and I just got back from a weeks vacation in Acapulco, at the Pierre Marques. We had a great time.
An excellent hotel
I have been to the Fairmont Pierre Marques twice and both times have loved the resort. I am not a golfer and basically go there just to relax. The rooms are extremely clean and attractive. The grounds are beautiful. There are several pools. One pool further away from the others does need to be cleaned a bit better, but that is a minor quibble. The food at the all inclusive restaurant is good. No, not the greatest, but certainly fresh and tasty. The service throughout the hotel is terrific. They are always there to accommodate you. It is also wonderful walking on the beach--water is very rough. I would highly recommend this hotel.
A very nice hotel with amazing views. Quiet and relaxing. Very popular with Mexican residents. Probably about an 80/20 split between Mexicans and Gringos. The food at the outdoor buffet restaraunt was good. The food at Tabachin - the fancy restraunt on premises - was outstanding but pricey. The Hotel was currently in the middle of a large remodel. About half the rooms had been remodeled and were very nice. The older rooms were clean but dated. Upon leaving, the person at the front desk said the remodeled rooms were called "Hacienda" type rooms. The beach in front of the Hotel is one of the nicer beaches in Acapulco. While it is public, the Hotel has been abel to keep a lot of the traffic down and keep nonguests from setting sunshades and such in front of the Hotel. The golf course was a fun layout but the maintenance left a lot to be desired for a $100/round course. If you can get a golf package at a reasonable rate - the golf courses (Pierre Marques and the Princess)are fun courses to play. Overall, we found the Pierre Marques to be a quiet little respite from the Hustle and Bustle of Acapulco. If you are looking for a neat little place by the Ocean to enjoy a good book, drink some ice cold coronas or margaritas and splash around in the ocean or pool, the Pierre Marques is great. If you want discos or crowds - go downtown or to the Princess.
