“Old Acapulco”
Reviewed 27 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

people found this review helpful

We had a perfect vacation at this house with amazing sea views and impeccable service from the staff. Food was as good as described, made by Doña Rosa. And yes, Santiago's frozen margaritas and piña coladas are delicious.
But what really distinguishes this property is that it is in a part of Acapulco that has not been developed into tall buildings, which is rare. The house was probably built in the 40s or 50s, and has been updated and redecorated in a fun artsy style. No AC (just numerous fans), so you live outdoors at the terrace with spectacular panoramic views of the bay, and where the dining and living areas are located.
There is direct access to the ocean, through some steps, and you can jump in for swimming into calm waters that are also nice for snorkeling. This direct access is hard to find in private beach houses. Also an easy swim to the Boca Chica hotel which is also an old but nicely renovated boutique hotel with good restaurant.
Lastly, if you come to Acapulco during holidays beaches can be packed, and here we really felt we could stay away from the crowds.

“Great views - just like pictures show”

We really didn't know what to expect from the pictures but the house is exactly as the pictures show. The view is gorgeous (and close) and the house is very well kept up.

Rosa is an excellent chef that went all out with the meals. She made sure she cooked per our health and dislike preferences while making sure everything we had was very flavorful. Also, our rental car broke down and Rosa went out of her way to try to help us with the rental agency. They weren't very cooperative but the next day Alexei started helping us too and we were finally able to get a new rental.

Santiago makes wonderful margarita's and was also very helpful with our questions. Someone ran into our mirror on the new rental and Santiago went with my husband to a place he knew where he could get a new mirror put in for very cheap.

We only had two people but the place could easily accommodate 4 couples with a lot of privacy and plenty of room to get away from each other. The main bedroom has a smaller bedroom attached so a family with kids could stay there and feel assured their kids were safe.

The pool is almost 20 stairs down from the living quarters so we didn't go down there as much as we would have liked with my husbands health problems. I had no problem navigating the stairs. But that could be an issue for many people. It was far enough away I wouldn't let kids go down there by themselves without an adult having to go down the stairs also.

The ocean was down many not so easy to climb stairs. Again, I didn't have a problem with it but my husband only went down once. I wouldn't be going up and down the stairs often even tho I don't have a problem with it because it was quite the trek to get to the ocean. I wish we would have had life vests so we could have used the ocean while down there. We might have gone down again if we had.

I found myself many days and evenings just relaxing on the hammocks reading - it was very peaceful out there.

There aren't any TV's or radio's so if you want music you will need to bring your own. But it is nice just listening to the ocean and the occasional tour boat go by.

Internet was wonderful - I expected service to be slow and in and out but we had nice fast connection the whole time. My husband watched a few shows on his tablet while we were there.

The house is also very close to all the hubbub of Acapulco. Most things you would need could be in walking distance.

It was a great relaxing trip and I would recommend the house to anyone. Especially if you are a couple/family that like to vacation with other couples/families. Everyone was very helpful and accommodating from when we first found the property online and had questions until we were back home.

The house has incredible view, we watched beautiful sunrises and sunsets. We had a great time in the pool and also snorkeling in the sea which is accessible from the house. The rooms were very cute and cozy. Santiago who takes care of the house was an amazing bartender, very helpful and nice.
