Hotel BaXar3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Hotel BaXar is located by what appears to be an unkept neighborhood. However, once inside the Hotel, you will find a lovely beach and good accommodations. Service is friendly and the food was delicious. We booked the Master Suite which comes with AC. However, when we arrived the AC was not working due to a power shortage. They apologized for the inconvenience and provided us with a fan. However, and due to them knowing that this could happen given the area where the hotel is located, they should have a power backup as it is very hot during the summer. As such, caution with staying at this place without AC during the summer season. Nights are hot and humid and given the lack of AC our stay was not as pleasant as we would have liked it to be. Regardless, recommend this place for people wanting to stay in a friendly and more genuine place far enough from civilization.
The last time I was there, the only room with AC was the master suite (more than twice expensive as the regular rooms). The pool was dirty with extremely cloudy water, besides that Excellent service. Excellent restaurant service and cocktails!
The first time I visited this place, it had a different name and another administration. Pie de la Cuesta is the place, people go to watch spectacular sundowns. You can enjoy the beach, but should be a good and experienced swimmer if you want to go into the ocean. The waves are high and the beach drops very steeply into the ocean, which means you will have a strong undertow. I came back to this hotel / restaurant several years and have been an eyewitness how the new administration improved installations. Prices are reasonable, quality of food is good and you can go there for only watching sunset, or stay a couple of days, relaxing with the sound of crashing waves, hanging out at the little swimming pool and enjoy the familiar atmosphere. Keep going that way!
Our room was clean, so were towels and sheets, nice and comfy. Quiet and great location. Staff was friendly, waiters and waitresses were super friendly. Only that I had to request another fan because it was too hot in the room and there is no AC. To me the minus of this hotel-restaurant was that the restaurant has no restrictions for smokers which is a requirement in most hotels and restaurants in Mexico. I made a suggestion to put a non-smoking sign but the manager said it was an "open place" .... so expect to have meals with smokers around.
I visited this hotel twice in the las couple of months due to work (Photography). It is really quiet and has a relaxed atmosphere, opposed to most other hotel in central Acapulco which for me is a plus, also on the bright side rooms are spacious and have a safe free of charge. The beach views are really nice, however the hotel is dated and since it is environmental oriented it has no air conditioner in any of the rooms and believe me, it can get really hot at night. Besides the heat issue, mosquitoes can get through the doors so you may get bit some times during the night. It is the best hotel in the area of Pie de la Cuesta, but in terms of comfort I would rate it on the low side of the scale considering it has on average the same rates as newer hotels in La Costera and even Diamante areas. Summarizing, if you really want to go to Pie de la Cuesta and stay the night there then Baxar is the best choice, on my personal view I think it is backpacker oriented and/or for people who just want to relax for long periods and don´t mind not having modern comforts. If you have more freedom to choose accommodation in any other area of Acapulco I would stay in Costera or Diamante Areas, since the hotel rates are pretty much the same but the difference in comfort is very big.
My husband and i stayed here for two nights as we didnt want to stay in acapulco but did want to pass thru and see the clavadistas. It was for us definitely the right choice. Easy enough to drive into acapulco and fantastic being right on the beach. The pounding waves make one hell of a noise but we found it quite exhilarating, didnt dare venture in past our knees tho! Had dinner at the hotel one night which was pretty good but found a better place to eat about a half km up the beach. There was maintenance going on in the room next door which was pretty disappointing as it was a real mess. The hotel tried to charge us for a room upgrade which we argued due to the noise and mess of the maintenance, they finally and grudgingly agreed not to charge us - something we felt should have been automatic! The clavadistas were absolutely amazing and sooo worth stopping off to see.
Very charming hotel located off Acapulco's main touristic circuit, ideal for that romantic gateway. Rooms are huge, clean and nicely decorated. Quite relaxing atmosphere, great for couples. The premises are rather small, but very well distributed with lots of nice places to sunbath, read, nap, drink cocktails, etc.
The Hotel is about 40 minutes from the crowded center of Acapulco. It is situated on a tongue between the ocean and a lagoon. Really specific location. You can expect quiet and relaxation if you choose this place. The rooms are very charming as the rooms as well. Everything is handmade in this traditional hotel. However If you are searching for a 5 star luxury hotel, this is not that. There is a swimming pool with salty water which is nice, but warm. The avarage temperature is 27 degrees which does not cool down in the evening. You won't need any sweater, don't take more than one. The staff is very nice and attentive. There must be some problem with the hot water but the cool shower is very refreshing in this muggy weather. So, it wasn't a problem but now you can count on this without any surprise. The beach is beautiful. The strong waves make a little noise at night, but it can be fixed with earplugs. The meal is delicious from local farms. The staff bend every effort to fill every requirement. We were a part of a fitness program but it is not permanent. The Weightless escape was fantastic; Kyra and James did everything for us to spend a healthy and active week here. Christopher, the owner, and his beautiful wife were always smiling while indulging us. It was really a family atmosphere. I recommend this hotel to everyone who wants a quiet place to relax away from the crowds. There are different sport activities like paddle board in the lagoon between the mangroves and there is a wakeboard line nearby. We were so lucky to get to a privat island where a local family entertained us. We could try Maxal which is a traditional brandy of aloe. The freshly caught sea beas was the best prepared fish in my life. I'll always remember the kindness of this family. In Europe we have pets like cat or dog, but here they own crocodile. :) All in all it was a fantastic experience. Thank you, Christopher!
Very good and fresh mexican breakfast. Nice atmosphere on beach with hammocks and swinging beds. Only drawback is bar closes quiet early. Maybe because it was in between the week. But they have very good and fresh cocktails. Nicely decorated rooms. Not having air conditioning was absolutely ok for us. Ocean has nice wave. You can go in and swim without any problems. Quiet area. Not too many people. Good to relax.
Pie de la Cuesta is the best place in Acapulco for the sunset, and Baxar is by far the best place to experience it. We stayed for 1 night and had 2 perfect days at the beach. Even if you do not spend the night you can have a wonderful day at the beach. The atmosphere is magical, attention to detail is great, and the service that was provided by Nizza and Pablo was very sweet and caring. Food is great, prices on the same level as other restaurants in the area, but nowhere else can you relax in sunbeds, hammocks, swinging beds, cushions or comfortable chairs. At night torches are set up which give the place a magic glow. I could go on for a long time, but before I bore you any further you just go there. We cannot wait to be back next year. When you make a booking just clarify if you would like to have air condition or not as not all rooms have it. All about personal preference.
