... and then dropped swiftly into the bayside resort of Acapulco de Juarez.
In the 50's, this is where Hollywood came to play. If you were a millionaire, this is where you were found. There and my hometown of Pismo Beach. Bugs Bunny was always trying to get there, but took a wrong turn in Tujunga, and ended up in Istanbul or Acaba. Where was I? Oh yeah...Acapulco used to be big time. Now, it's an over-priced, played-out scene, that ...
Today we spent the day sailing down the coast of Mexico. From our map, we are off the coast of Acapulco. No port stops today as we are heading to Guatamala, which takes two nights and two days sailing to arrive. The waters are very calm and the sailing very smooth. We are both very relaxed and Johnny is enjoying the variety of foods on board.
... The resort itself is quite pleasant and really enjoyed the sunsets. Also recommend trying the Fish and Ceviche at La Genuina. The restaurant is out of the way but the textures and flavors were really amazing. The restaurant itself was situated in a warehouse type building with local bands and music. Someone quoted that this looks like a Salma Hayek ...
... In Mexico, they have shops called Oxxo’s (basically the same as Tesco Expresses or 7-11’s). In Acapulco, they officially have the most in the country per area – having over 200. So basically I went on a bit of an Oxxo Bar Crawl along the Malecon, as I walked the entire 12km drinking bottles of Indio and Corona. By the time I’d reached the end, probably will have had about 7, but still didn’t know what the plan was for later, so made my way to a place ...
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 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Fiesta Americana Villas Acapulco
Great Location right in the middle of the stripp. Stay away from the food it will get you sick. Eat across the street at the taco stand cheap and great tacos. The pool is perfect but the beach is a gay beach just keep walking.
Expected Much More...
Location is good to experience the culture; very close to everything. We experienced TOO much culture and longed for more of a resort atmosphere. Did not spend time at beach due to all the "salesmen". All inclusive package is not good - no choice of restaurants - basically one restaurant per meal. Air conditioning in our room did not cool, but we had a great view. Amenities include blow dryer and iron; however, you have to call and sign for them each day. I do not recommend this hotel to anyone who travels very much. You will expect more, as we did.
I stayed at the Fiesta Americana Condesa last November. It's a pretty decent hotel with a great location. However, there's a club next door, right on the beach that stays open until 6am. We could hear the noise all night. We couldn't sleep.
Great Family Hotel
My husband and I stayed at the Fiesta Americana Condesa Acapulco Hotel in May. We were pleasantly surprised. Very large rooms, large bathrooms. We had an ocean view room, great view. Very nice pools. Never a lack of beach chairs. Very helpful staff. I wasnt impessed with the hotel restaurants. But not to worry the hotel is smack in the middle of everything. There are countless numbers of restaurants and bars to choose from out side of the hotel. Most of the clients were families. I will most definitely return this year with my husband and two children.
The hotel was ok, but the neighboring bars etc. were heard thru out the night and made it difficult to sleep until about 3am.Too, my final day I had chicken salad at the pool side cafe and it must've been in the sun too long because within 24 hours I was VERY sick.All in all, I'd choose Cancun over Acapulco.
While I may live in the "hotel capital of the world" I expected a lot more from a hotel that was given top ratings from travel writers. The F.A. Condesa in Acapulco needs some help. The rooms need their soft goods repaired badly. Soft goods would be drapes, carpet, bedspreads, etc. Plus their doors to the rooms "slam" shut rather than close gently, so everytime your neighbor or anyone upstairs or down below leaves their room, you hear it, day and night. For a business traveler, their rooms are not conducive, no desk, no clock and laptop connections are difficult to hook up at best. I do give higher marks to their bathrooms, very large, great amenities (shampoo, lotions, bodywash) and their water pressure is great. And while each room does have a balcony, there is no furniture on these balconies, what's the point? Their pools are nice, but the furniture around the smaller pool desperately needs new cushions. Also be careful, even though it says the hotel has 3 restaurants, these restaurants are open for only very specific times and meals, 1 for bkfst, 1 for lunch and 1 for dinner. One last remark, if you are on the side of the hotel that faces the bars, you'll hear the music all night long.
We found this very disappointing for the money. We should have stayed at the Costa Club, rated lower in brochure than Fiesta, slightly more money, but much, much nicer. You have to navigate tons of stairs to get to the beach and have a very limited choice of restaurants, 1 restaurant per meal so you get really tired of the selection. Staff was friendly, pool was nice, but would not stay there again.
Plenty of action
it was what we had expected. right in the middle of the strip. i would ask for a room not facing the disco on the strip. the hotel is a little aged but we had as good as service and rooms as anywhere we've been in mexico. hotel taxi drivers speak english well. ask for moses or irineo, they can keep you in stitches. they can show you more acapulco than you can handle.
Great Place to stay
It is a great place to stay. The staff and amenities are excellent. The location of the hotel itself, and its beaches, can't be beat. If you stay there, you won't regret it. I always stay there, the rates, food, view, pool, and cleanliness of the rooms is outstanding.
It is a very nice hotel the pool is great and when you go out to the beach it is very nice its a great family place .Do go to hard rock cafe.If you are with youre daughter on the beach and she wants brades get them to lower it down to 50 pesos .I got that price.close to the hotel on the beach there are many great activities.Have fun.
