... 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 ...
... funny hearing Meh-hee-ko and other Spanish words with a Jewish accent. It was all very interesting, but I have not remembered any of the numbers or facts. I guess my mind is mush on holidays.
When we got back to the ship, we did a little bit of shopping in the cruise terminal. They had the best prices for t-shirts, etc on the whole trip. After lunch, we just relaxed in the cabin as it was way too hot to go outside. It ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsMayan Palace Acapulco
We initially booked the sister hotel but were diverted here as it was undergoing renovation. What a treat, the facilties in room were excellent, it was a little cramped maybe with all three kids on sofa beds in the lounge but that was the only down side. The kitchenette was great, it had all the stuff I needed to cook (the restaurants and bars are very expensive!) and the kids just didn't want to leave. The pools are extensive with a lazy river and you can use all the facilites at the clubhouse as well. My only criticism you have to pay quite a lot for use of the internet which these days is a very strange concept!!!

Historical Traveler Reviews Mayan Palace Acapulco
Great,, Just don't buy a time share
It's a lovely place...magnificant...just DON'T get suckered in to buying a time share...they are real expensive...try to sell it for more than it is worth...the customer service once you are a member pretty much stinks. If you can afford to stay here...it is beautiful...just don't get a time share...I highly regret every getting one there. Thanks!
My Big Mistake
After reading what I had signed, I told the sales personal within my five day cooling off period I did not want to be a member of Mayan Palace. I was told that once I signed, it was too late. I should have called my credit card company immediately.
Will be returning for the fifth time!
Mayan Palace is my favorite resort! It is beautiful, romantic, and relaxing; whether lying by the pool, reading a paperback, or sitting under the waterfalls, you couldn't find a better place to be with the one you love. Can't wait to return in March of 2003. The staff is top notch!
Beautiful & Romantic
Mayan Palace in Acapulco is absolutely wonderful! Love the pools, waterfalls, food & ambiance! Close to airport and far enough from busy downtown to be romantic and quaint. Grab a taxi nightly and it's a 15 min ride to Acapulco's hot spots. You'll love the Mayan Palace!
Wonderful - great place to visit
We have stayed at Mayan Palace, Acapulco three times - returning for fourth trip January 2003. A great/fabulous palce to stay. Simply beutiful in the evenings. Weather always great.
Truly amazing. We visit a Vidafel resort every year, but this is our favorite. Been there three times now. After several visits using RCI exchanges, we ended up purchasing a week at their resort in Nuevo Vallarta. You can buy into thier system at any Vidafel property and you have access to all the others. Here are some tidbits:
The Mayan Palace Acapulco it's not just the most beautiful resort to us it is Paradise, we stayed there at least 5 times 4 to 8 weeks at the time and we are going back. The weather is allways perfect and sunny.
What a property!
We stayed at the Mayan Palace about a year ago and we cannot wait to go back. The property is beautiful and the pool was amazing. The staff was frendly and always helpful. The beach was beatiful and far enough from downtown that it wasn't crowded. Next time we're bring the kids!
My family visited the Vidafel Mayan Palace and were pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the property. The beach, despite the vendadores, horses and dune buggy rentals, was pleasant with great board surfing, body surfing and boogie boarding waves. My six and nine year olds were able to enjoy the surf, as long as we kept them out of the rip tide area, directly in front of the life guard tower.
Best In Acapulco
I have been to the Mayan Palace twice now and I would have to say that it is the most beautifull, extravagant, and luxurious hotel that I have ever stayed at. The staff and service is wonderfull, the pool is amazing, and the hotel facilities are the best that you could find anywhere in the world. If you plan on visition Acapulco Vidafel Mayan Palace should be you first choice, believe me.
