Grand Hotel Acapulco

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very good location, two excellent pools. A little on the old side but well maintained and very clean.

The breakfast buffet was extremely good and satisfying, and everyone was very attentive. From the security guards, to the waiters to the guy who processed our check out in record time. The hotel is nice, and while it looks a little bit dated, the services and location are very good. Even the internet was fairly fast! My only objection has nothing to do with the hotel, but with other guests: in the beach zone a large group was speaking loudly and with profanity, and boasting Banda music through a speaker. Later in the evening the same group was at the pool, where thankfully they were asked buy an extremely courteous security guard to turn off their music to avoid disturbing other customers. They objected when another employee reminded them that in order to use the pool they should wear swimsuits and not denim shorts and cotton t-shirts. I was surprised how well the staff handled this very rude extended family. The hotel felt like a very safe place in a town that has some reputation regarding street crime.

The rooms and over all the hotel needs updating, the staff is very friendly and I love the location because the beach is just a few feet away from the hotel.

Nice place for families, staff is super friendly. Two great pools.

Excellent, I spent most of the time at the beaches and also gym, swimming pool , everything was nice.

The pool needs repairs and has to be clean around the edges, also didn't like , if you have a guess even if you are consuming, around pool or if I invited friends to eat dinner have to pay for them extra to be around

Nice for families with children, two big pools and nearby restaurants.

Right beside the Navy Base, with nearby restaurants.

This a long time hotel, well maintained with two great pools.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It was in a great location right on the beach. The room was very clean. Our only complaint was that the WiFi didn't work well consistently.

Very clean hotel, a little outdated but in good condition. Pools are great and location too.

Stayed here over the weekend after New Year's, which was very crowded and generally not recommended, but after the first day the hotel emptied out and became very pleasant. Staff are nice, and the facilities are very good for a three star hotel in Mexico. Rooms are big, the ones with a full ocean view are fantastic (we got that) and the gym is huge. Beach is steps away from the pool. Better upkeep than some other three star hotels in this neighborhood, although the bathroom is beginning to show its age. Overall very good.

Good location. A bit old but clean. All ok. On the bay, good beach and good pool

Very well located, several good restaurants nearby, including SUNTORY. Staff is very friendly.

A comfortable room with great view of Acapulco Bay.

Staff is very friendly, location is excellent. Several restaurants nearby.

Was just what I needed for a couple of nights relaxing by the coast. Great rooms and amazing view.

El hotel es grande, pero muy antiguo, las puertas de los baños (en dos cuartos diferentes) no cerraban y las instalaciones son viejas. Las albercas buenas y grandes pero con agua muy caliente, no invita a estar en ellas.

Nice location but not at walking distance to the nightlife heart . The staff is very friendly and helpfull. Clean and espacios rooms. Nice beach, and pools. Exceeded my expectations according to the price.

The staff at the front desk are slow. It took me about 45 min to check in because a tourist group was ahead of me checking in. The toilet got clogged up a few times, but the response was adequate. Room was spacious. We had a nice stay.
