The room was on the 12th floor BUT THE ELEVATOR ONLY GOES TO THE 11TH, so you have to take a short flight of stairs. This wouldn't be an issue if it hadn't been a family vacation. We have a 1-yr old boy, so carrying the stroller through the very narrow stairs was quite a hassle. Now, the room being... More

When we arrived, they wouldn't give us each a room card. There was 4 of us, they gave one card. We asked for more, they gave one more. The second elevator wasn't working. The one that did work, barely worked and was like a sweat box. Room was supposed to sleep 6 yet there wasn't bedding for 6. We received... More

We booked a one week stay at the Bayview Suites at El Presidente through Vida Lifestyles for the last week of January. Our confirmation came from RCI. (Hmm) We arrived and were ushered into a presentation room for the RCI salesperson to chat us up. Fortunately, the sales people on staff don't speak fluent English, so we were taken back... More

The service was great, food was good, and the room newly renewed. The best of its kind considering the price. Right in the center of Acapulco, where you can walk anywhere . Overall we had a relaxing and great stay right next to the beach with some coctails.

I had a suite here for a week... built in 1952... The owners make absolutely no investment to maintain this property. As the staff says this is a cash cow for the owners and nothing more.. The towels and the bed sheets had holes. You would think that if any room would get the best it would be the suites...... More

We got a miramar suite which was huge with a very nice view overlooking the bay. The hotel is old but better than we expected since we read a lot of reviews. Location is very good food is nice but not extraordinary. People that work there were very nice to us.
