Hotel Emporio Acapulco
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Our OpinionAn amazing resort, located in an amazing part of Acapulco. Accommodations are very clean and maintained. The hotel is staffed with very courteous and attentive employees. An OK pool and deck area. However, the beach is nearby and the view is absolutely breathtaking.
Location - On Condesa Beach & 30 minutes from the airport.
We stayed here for 4 nights after being at a hotel closer to the airport for the 1st part of our stay. I would 100% stay here again. Beautiful grounds, great location.We ate breakfast buffet at the hotel, it was good. They have a lot of options including an omlette bar and a fresh juice bar, where they added fruits, veggies and extras like flax seed to fresh juices you custom made.The staff was nice, around the pool you usually had to go track someone down for a drink. A Pina colda ran about $3.50 USD, a pacifico $2.We usually ate within walking distance of the hotel, we really liked a place called BAMBU it was in the beach, cheap drinks, good food.There is a casino about 3 blocks away, and 2 Artisan Markets very close.We didn't spend a lot of time at the beach, most of our time was poolside. There are turtles and parrots in cages around the pool area. 2 adult only pools and a big kids one with a slide and ship.
This hotel has a very good location, has beach, near many types of restaurants. and for shopping. You can walk arround any time. Has a valet parkiing.The staff is nice, the rooms are clean. Has a nice gym.
Great location close to everything. Shopping and food are walking distance. The resort is beautiful, clean and the employees are very friendly and helpful. Beach is right outside the resort making it even better.
Wonderful resort in Acapulco. We stayed 9 nights and had a great time.Pros:- All the rooms have sea views, with really great views over the beautiful Acapulco bay.- Three pools, one for family and two for adults, with a lot of different seating options, including very comfortable pool beds in one of the adult pool.- Fantastic breakfast - actually, brunch would be a better term considering the large selection of food and that the buffet closes at 12:00.- Large rooms with private balcony. Really nice to sleep with the patio door open and the ceiling fan (we don't really like air conditioning, but they have that too if you prefer).- A good selection of restaurants just in front of the hotel, on the other side of the street.- Great internet connection in the rooms, and ok internet connection by the pool.The resort is really busy on weekends with the local tourism, but it is more quiet during the week. Reserve your pool seating early on Saturday, but you should be ok for the rest of the week.
We traveled to Acapulco annually from the late 90's until 2011 as we had a timeshare at the Emporio for a 2 room adjoining suite. When things got "dicey" safety-wise our previous travel companions did not want to go there anymore so we let the timeshare go and made other choices for February travel. This year we made a decision that we would go back - just the two of us. We chose to stay 7 nights at the Emporio and 5 nights at Hotel Mishol on Barra Vieja about 15km south of the airport on open water. I have reviewed that property separately. The Emporio has not changed much since our last visit. Not a lot happening during the week - not very crowded, no problem getting chairs etc. Weekends were busy. One very notable difference was the ACA Bar was closed off and under major construction. The "bar" had been moved to a corner of the restaurant- no ambiance there so we did not utilize it. During the week the construction noise from the pools was horrible- jackhammers and pounding all day long. On the weekends they suspended construction as the hotel fills up for a couple of days with weekend visitors from Mexico City. Hopefully the new bar is awesome....We asked for a room on 7 or above and did get one, no kitchen but we have them open the minibar and empty it into the neighboring cabinet. They say they frown on this but we had no problem. It was early in the day and check-in isn't until 3pm but they stored our luggage and gave us towel cards so that we could use the pool during our wait. We always use the adult pool. We like the infinity pool (upstairs adjoining the big thatched roof restaurant) for sunsets!!Weddings and conferences are frequent and often result in parties on the beach late into the evening. Fireworks around midnight are also common. This is the price you pay for that $1M view. Keep your patio door closed. Other hotels have the same issue if they are good and well-located. As others have said the AC was hard to regulate. It wasn't quite strong enough during the day but we weren't in there enough to make a big deal about it. We did have staff come up and redirect the vents so we were more comfortable during the night. We used our blankets for sleeping. The pool bar was pretty dead our entire visit. We do utilize pool bar service ( using the attentive wait-staff) for drinks and food and are always pleased with the service and quality. Checkout was easy. We would stay at the Emporio again. Acapulco is definitely on its way back!! It has a decidedly more Mexican feeling and we enjoyed that. It is a great value for a big city experience. Many of our favorite restaurants were still in business and just as good as we remembered. Try El Jacalito and Napoli - both in walking distance to the hotel. We also enjoy going down to Papagayo Beach (the public beach north of the Krystal Hotel). Great people watching, cheap food and drink. We like Bocana Beach Papagayo. We also catch the AC busses outside the hotel to travel to the center - it's fun down there. We took an excursion to the Coyuca Lagoon Tour and Bay Turtle Release with Viator. I have reviewed that separately.
