Expect to be hawked wares by the locals, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. The food/drinks/trinkets are very reasonably priced (you also pay about 130 pesos for a table/umbrella for the day). Very relaxing place to spend the afternoon and early evening. PS -...More

Playa Condesa is a beautiful beach right in the middle of the hotel zone of Acapulco. There are many bars and restaurants right there. Also many water activities can be found these. The place is packed on the weekends.

Right close to the center, not too crowed, despite Xmas time. Golden sand, beautiful view of Acapulco, embelliched by the peculiar rocks in front of it. Too many people trying to sell you any kind of things, as I suppose everywhereverybody else. Windy enough to...More

A very nice beach, nice sand, clean water, beautiful views. I agree, however, with other Reviewers that getting there may be difficult, depending on the time of the day and a day itself.

Too bad. The water is clean, but gets deep quickly. The sand is great. The other beach goers are fine. 90% of the businesses seem like they are stuck in the past and just wringing out dollars.
