Hotel Boca Chica Acapulco3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I recently spent some time with family at the Boca Chica hotel restaurant and bar in Acapulco. This refurbished hotel is mid-century modern cool. Furnishings are sparse but the hip factor is off the chart. It is a ways into old Acapulco, so if you are staying by the airport or in Puerto Marques, you will have quite a drive. The hotel is tucked away so it will he hard to find, but when you walk through the entrance you are surrounded by whites, cool greens, and a vibe that can only be described as chill. The pool, restaurant, and bar are bay side and have incredible views of the green waters of Acapulco bay. If your coming by boat, there is a pier for you to get on shore, but you must anchor the boat in the bay. The menu at the restaurant was limited, but all of it was good. It included seafood, some traditional Mexican food, and a truffle burger. We were there for lunch, so I don't know if the dinner menu have more options. The handmade margaritas we had were excellent and the wine offerings were quite good. I can't speak to pricing as my brother-in-law paid for this one. :-) Overall, if your up for an adventure into old Acapulco, this is a great place to go.
Great trip, especially with Ricardo. During the bus ride, he explained the history and current status of the Mayan. Lots of joking around. But still excellent stories about the history. The swim in the underground cave was better than I thought it would be; and not nearly as cold. Chichen Itza was fantastic. Ricardo told us about each of the pyramids and buildings; both the Mayan use and the discovery/excavation. The only downside of the trip was the final stop to see an old Spanish church (you couldn't go in to look around). I highly recommend the tour and will probably repeat it if we return to the area.
No doubt that the charm of this hotel is driven by the architecture and the features reminding the glorious past of Acapulco The location is great for the ones who want to discover the 'old' Acapulco and the 'real' mean of what is a Mexican beach You also can enjoy to stay in the hotel where the pool and the private access to the sea give you an exclusive experience The restaurant food (Mexican and Japonese fusion) is really good The price are a little bit on the top edge of Acapulco hotel rates ... But you pay the charm , the uniqueness and the exclusivity of this hotel The only downsize part is the poor service (mitigated by the friendless of the staff!)
Vintage hotel from the gold era of Acapulco operated by Habita. They have done a good job keeping it up, the rooms are confortable and nicely decorated. You will feel like you at back in time :) They have one restaurante by the pool with very good service and food. The hotel does not have a private beach, but it has access to the ocean by the cliff right next to the restaurant. They market the hotel as a small boutique hotel, however the restaurant operates not only for the hotel guests what makes the place very crowed as they let the restaurant clients use the common areas, which are very small making it crowded. You will have to hunt an spot to stay for the day, wake up early or you won't have where to laid down for the day. In regards of the location, keep in mind it is very far from the Hotel Are (Zona Hotelera) or Punta Diamante, if you come here is to stay here to relax. During high season, from the hotel to Punta Diamante you will spend up to 45 minutes. The surroundings aren't very nice, not a good idea to walk around the hotel to explore...
I was so looking forward to staying at this hotel and wasn’t disappointed. It’s like a trip back to a time when travel was glamorous, surrounded by original 50s features. If you love mid century modern you’ll love this place. The pool looks across Acapulco Bay; steps take you down to the water, where you can swim or snorkel. The restaurant has a Japanese chef and you’ll find Japanese/Mexican fusion offerings on the menu. Stay here and enjoy the views, the ambience and the well preserved architectural features.
A small, but really nice hotel. There is a public beach on one side, which was really full and a little noisy, but it is seperated form the hotel and on the other side of the hotel there is a little space which is really quiet with lovely views of Acapulco. I absolutely loved the garden room, the doors opened out and it felt so spacious and I appreciated the attention to details. The restaurant was very nice - lovely food and good prices. I also had a massage and took advantage of the various spaces throughout the hotel where you can sit, enjoy the view and relax. I think Acapulco is very nice and I'd recommend this pet-friendly hotel
For a retro pricey hotel I found it lacking several things. First, the location couldn't be worse. There is nothing around the area but a local public beach and a few beach apparel stores. You will need to take a taxicab for at least 15 min to go to find entertainment and restaurants. Second, the rooms are too small with few amenities expected of a hotel taking the minimalist concept a little too far. If you do decide to stay in this hotel be sure to pack a light suitcase because there is literally no space for your things. Third, expect no quiet during your stay. The public beach I mentioned earlier blasts music all day and you can hear it no matter where you are in the hotel. There is nothing boutique about this place and there are certainly better options around Acapulco for less!
It was true romance from the beginning, everything is great about this hotel, the spa, the pool, the rooms, the restaurant, the views - go there, you will not regret it! Staff was very helpful and sweet, everything was calm and pleasant.
It's not luxurious, so don't expect a fabulous bathroom, infinite closet space, 47 pillows, high-end toiletries and a robe. (The shower arrangement, unless you're a solo traveler, may take some getting used to.) And the neighborhood is best-suited for visitors comfortable with "Mexico": This is the real thing (and the real thing, incidentally, is very cool, especially if you like street food and enjoy mingling with locals). Rooms, recently refurbished, are immaculate (and air-conditioned). The front desk is helpful. Balconies overlook Playas Caletilla and Caleta, both clean and lovely and an easy stroll from the lobby. The hotel has a smallish but nice main pool and access to a tidal one. The restaurant, curiously, is Japanese-Mexican and very, very good. And the prices? You'll want to pay double the rate out of a sense of guilt. There's a historic sense here that's a genuine relief from the attempted (and these days, sometimes tired) glitz along the Costera. I only had two nights here; I wish I'd had longer.
I can really recommend this place for couples. Especially for SPG members, you receive all benefits, I got the nicest room in the hotel (sunset suite) with a brilliant view, a big balcony etc. Service is ok, a bit slow but I guess that is normal in Mexico anyway. Direct access to the sea, 5 minutes walking to the playa caleta and a small market that serves (mainly sea) food at really good prices. But also the prices in the hotel are really good and not expensive. The style of the hotel is retro trendy. Facilities are not new but everything in a good condition, and all seems to be cleaned properly. Booking this hotel off season (July and August I know) will get you the room for -45% off its price, and the weather is still good nearly each day (it just rained nearly each night). All in all this hotel can be really recommended for couples that seek a quiet and relaxing place.
