Expert Review

Although Elcano is a survivor from Acapulco’s heyday (the 1950s) the old gal underwent $13 million-dollar renovations to keep it swinging and in style. The lobby recalls a retro vibe and the beachside pool area offers a lively waterfront scene. If you want to be close enough to all the action i.e. in-between the beach zone and the hillside nightlife, Elcano is an excellent choice – not to mention value. Within the hotel's ten stories, all 180 rooms have a navy-and-white color scheme with tile floors, snappy modern accoutrements and generous oceanfront balconies. Smaller studios, although, have no balconies and only a small armoire that also doubles as a closet/entertainment center. They do have large sliding windows that let plenty of light flood in.
