Our OpinionThe Park Royal Acapulco is a great resort for families. The resort is located amongst a gated community a little further away from the hub of Acapulco. The resort has a great kids club, and has very pleasant and attentive staff. The views in this resort is fantastic. Make sure to request an ocean view suite!
Location: Beachfront, 25 minutes from the airport, 15 minutes from the convention center and 3 minutes from Acapulco's hottest nightlife.
The place is OK, their buffets include really good dishes, BUT, the RCI personnel will haunt you like a bad disease to get you to acquire the membership. They'll even turn any basic demand into a pre-condition to force you into listening to their endless preaching... really annoying!!!
Although we had a minor issue that could not be resolved, The facilities in general are quite well-designed, the hotel is very well located, the private beach is lovely, the dishes they offer are quite tasty and varied and customer service by the staff at the restaurants is quite good. Maybe less time share sale attempts would make it awesome but all in all, we would enjoy staying here again.
I had read negative things about the rooms, i.e. bad beds, foul odors, appliances not working properly, and the confusion of the hotel layout. When we arrived we were put in room 1815 which had 2 full beds that were not too old and they were comfortable enough. We had issue with the air con not cooling properly. After 1.5 hours of waiting for it to cool I called and they offered us 2 other rooms but no upgrade. I just had foot surgery a few months ago and I have limitations on walking long distances. They sent a bell boy (Jose) who spoke good English to show us the other room they were at the other end of hotel in the Jasmine section. They were rooms exactly like we had but we were assured the air con would most likely work better. I was told there was a "known issue" about the air con in room 1815. We decided to stay in our room that first night and see how the air was. Apparently they did work to make the air con colder, in fact it was 21 Celsius (69.3 degrees). This was great initially but then we were unable to adjust the temperature at all. So it stayed there and we were often very cold! No functioning of thermostat and mind you this is supposed to be a 4 star hotel. The shower in the bathtub had to be turned off by me as my wife and daughter didn't have the strength to turn it so it wouldn't drip. So the first night it dripped and there was water all over the floor. I had asked if someone could fix that or look at it but that never happened. The toilet seat was scratched up like someone had taken a knife to it! and there was occasionally a foul sewer order noticeable in our room.The food here (at the Bahia) was very average or below average except for breakfast. Wednesday night was Oriental food night and it was awful! The sushi rolls looked so good but the rice in the rolls was soft and watery, making the rolls almost inedible. The only thing that tasted decent to me was the duck in Mandarin sauce. Sweet & sour pork, and chicken with peanut sauce were terrible. La Tratorria (the only upscale restaurant) was impossible to get into unless you stood in line every day in front of restaurant from 12:00 to 1:30. We did that one day but almost died from the heat standing outside. This restaurant too, was just a bit above average, but far better that the others. Wine was good, it was from Spain, but nothing special. I ordered Beef Tenderloin with rosemary potatoes. When my plate arrived I couldn't believe it as the portion of beef was less than 2 ounces, there were only 3 very small cuts of potatoes! and one small twig of broccoli and one of cauliflower. This was really pathetic! The beef was tender but not enough to feed a bird! The menu was so limited (small) and unimaginative. I can't believe this place has great reviews! The anti pasta appetizers were good and they were the only thing good there except for the wine and good service. I was so disgusted that no one would alter the "stand in line each day" between (12:00 & 1:30) just in order to eat there. I can understand that they don't want the restaurant with children running wild, as they do in the other restaurant. We ate one time at El Pescdor and the food was OK, just average!The great majority of folks staying there were Mexican families with kids. No one was rude but again no one was very friendly either. We felt out of place. I am so sorry that I believed Orbitz when they did a switch and bait on me and told me this was a great "all inclusive" hotel that was very nice The staff people were pretty nice except for when we left on the last day. My daughter left her passport in the room. I realized this and called and we drove back. I let my wife go in but it was so crowded she couldn't speak with the man in charge in the front. Also that man scolded me for not having my wife and daughter come in immediately and have their blue arm bands cut off. I was angry because I called for a bellboy and when no one showed up after more than15 minutes, we had to leave and take our own bags. My daughter and wife took the luggage out the front door then immediately came to desk to have their wrist bands cut off. What really makes me angry is that the young man working at the left of the front desk made my wife go back to the room when we had been told the passport would be waiting for us downstairs. He rudely handed her a key and lectured her about the passport. My wife went to the room and of course the passport wasn't there. When she came back the elevator got stuck and everyone was trapped for 15 minutes.My advice is not to stay here in summer unless you can tolerate being captive in a large hotel resort with very disappointing food! Also the reservation issue about the La Tratorria is pathetic. I would never stay here again though the people who worked here were accommodating and friendly until we left the last day.
Bad experience. If the owners want to increase the number of members they have, they should start by giving an excelent service since the begining to the regular visitors. It's terrible that they try to sell a membership if they are giving a terrible service.
Really enjoyed the stay, even though we had some issues with the room the issues were taken care of. I would recommend this hotel. People are nice, the location is a little far to go anywhere walking. Very family oriented my kids and family had a good time!!!
