Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were not exactly in this part of the beach but closer to the Quinta Real area, it was beautiful and quiet. Rented boogie boards for a little surfing.
We did not eat at the places there, enjoyed the beach.

this beach is right across the street from my husband's aunt's beach house. They have great prices for drinks and food, definitely worth the value! For a small price you can sit under a nice palm branch shaded area. Horse rides and boogie boards are for rent if you would like. The only downside (or upside if you like) is that there are a lot of sellers walking around. Some have good deals, but some will trick you into making something then having you pay for it (a guy came up and asked my husband's and my name, came back a couple minutes later with a cute card of two people kissing with our names on it and asked us for money, which we bought because we felt bad and it was cheap, but you get the idea, haha). Overall, amazing beach and love going there when we visit.

Went there on a Saturday. The population in the city proper swells on weekends so it is nice to get away from that. The beach is very nice we go to the same guy Roberto. Treats us right. Just a few vendors. Be careful in the water as the rip currents can be fatal

We go there at least once every winter. My husband loves to surf the waves. The restaurants see you coming and their fast food is expensive but that is the way for them to make money.

We went to Playa Revolcdero for the day. It is so different from the other side of Acapulco( Las Brisas). The waves are amazing and as far you can see it is just this amazing strip of beach and waves. Lovely.

The sand and beach is great, the undertow quite dangerous, you must take care. No place to park your car. Beach vendors again as in all Acapulco trying to sell you something all the time.

Clear and clean Pacific ocean and white sandy beaches. It is open ocean so it is rougher water than in Acapulco Bay or Puerto Marques.

The beautiful Pacific Ocean is open at this particular beach strip. For us typically the morning had a few small waves with a calm background by lunch time the waves grew larger & stronger. There is no lifeguard & we were told by security that you should not venture too far out as the current can be deadly. I do agree. We are all strong swimmers. There were many body/boogie board surfers. They were having a blast. So were we. The beach is clean. The ocean is clean. You can walk for miles. We felt safe. You can rent those sun canopy’s with chairs for approximately $15 per hut for the day. Otherwise your resort has chairs that belong to them although it’s much closer to the resort rather than the ocean. Wear shoes to walk on the sand as it gets VERY HOT.
Enjoy. We did.

This beach is incredible clean ... you even can see little fish very near the shore. If you stay near the parking lot is crowded but walking a few meters toward the princess hotel you can find some shades to rent that give you the required comfort. There are boards to rent and you can walk a lot on the beach with the water on your knee. Good and enjoyable family fun.

Playa Revolcadero is a nice sized warm beach with a local flare! There are vendors with little huts right on the beach selling seashells, food, and souveniers of all sorts. The waves are sometimes choppy but when it's calm you can totally go in the water and ejoy a nice day in the sun! There are many beautiful hotels along the strip and you can just walk and admire the bustling hotels and beach clubs. Loved my time in the water here!
