My room had a spectacular view of Acapulco Bay. The hotel is located near the mid point of the bay shore so every way you look the vistas are breathtaking. The bed was comfortable and the housekeepers did a good job of cleaning. It’s an older hotel and while the ample staff is always puttering around cleaning and polishing, the...

The views are spectacular indeed. The pool is big and nice to swim and relax. As for the beach, while we were there, it was really nice to go out for a walk along the shore. Due to the tides, the area was not recommended by our guide for swimming, there are other beaches recommended for that purpose. While we...

Got my SLR camera ($1400 value) and smartphone ($200 value) stolen at the hotel by a staff. Saw the thief (in hotel blue uniform) with my own eyes running away with my things and entered the hotel kitchen area. I cried for help while chasing after the thief, but the staff on the grounds ignored my cries as if nothing...

Just returned from one week at the El Cano. My advice would be to disregard all negative reviews. Hotel was clean, staff was courteous, and every room has an AMAZING ocean view!! Went almost all inclusive which included 3 meals a day...buffet style. The food was good. Had a vast array of fruit, vegetables, and desserts. Breakfast was by far...

After spent few weeks at different locations in Mexico I continued my journey to Acapulco. I couldn't believe my eyes when I checked in. The lobby was furnished with everything I kept in mind, except the piano, and I felt a sentimental value when entered the room. Moreover, I was moved by a charming feeling when I walked down the...

So this is Acapulco not Cancun or somewhere else. Luxury no. Nice definitely. The better you treat the staff the better they treat you. Want face clothes? Leave the maid $1 or 20 pesos with a note. More pillows? A blanket? No problem. Every room is ocean view and you can hear the ocean at night. The lobby bar is...

What a lovely hotel! I must admit that the first thing that attracted me in choosing Hotel Elcano was the photos on Trip Advisor of the blue decor throughout the hotel. My favourite colour is blue. I also read the reviews that the food was good. Trip Advisor reviewers, thanks again, you are true to your word. I was in...

Just came back from a week at this hotel. Jan 6th. - Jan 13th. We went to this hotel because we read the comments on tripadvisor and people gave it a 4 to a 4 plus. This is definitely not anywhere near a 4 star. I don't know where people have travelled to but this is not a 4 star...
