The hotel was horrible

Since the moment we arrived, things were already bad. We were not even registered when we arrived, though we had received the hotel registration confirmation through e-mail. So, we registered there with the receptionist. We were shown to our room and it was dirty, and rustic. Everything in there was old, the refrigerator had rust all around. The wood cabinet doors were hard to open. There was water on the floor, most likely dripping from the sink, because the water was near the sink and even more in the bathroom. Also, the beds were so low that the sheets touched the floor; that can't be sanitary.

We enjoyed this hotel as a romantic getaway...This was our fourth stay at El Mirador...Again, we were very pleased with the staff who always provide friendly service. The hotel is older, but the rooms are comfortable and the beauty of the landscape & unique design of the hotel are worth every peso. The hotel offers an inexpensive breakfast buffet with a gorgeous oceanfront view. No shopping within walking distance, however the hustle and bustle on the main drag isn't far away by car....

Mexico Hotel

I took many pictures of the cliff, toured the area and attended a wedding. There was nor clock radio, refrigerator, microwave, and iron. I realized the conveniences we have here in the State are not considered the right of guests to have in their hotel rooms. It would have made the stay more enjoyable and affordable.

Eating in the hotel is very expensive, walking down the street is a local restaurant I saw some hotel workers eating at this restaurant. You can save a lot of money for something else.

Great view

I loved the breakfast buffet. Lots of stairs and no elevators here. Stayed here for the cliff divers and the great view that this hotel offers of the ocean and sunset. Staff is great but the hotel is outdated and in a desperate need of an update. They don't even have access to the internet!

Beware of taxi drivers that camp outside the hotel. If you take a short walk and get a taxi you will see the a big difference in the price.

Great Location for the Price!

We toured Aculpoco and enjoyed seeing the city. We came to spend a couple of days in advance of embarking on the Panama Canal cruise on the Island Princess.
