Expert Review

This Spanish colonial-style house is a refreshing choice for those tired of the strand of busy high-rise hotels that line Acapulco Bay. That said, with only three rooms, you'd better book way in advance. The petite hotel is encircled by tropical gardens and a pool. On the beach, there's a palm-roofed overhang providing some shade and chairs for reading and watching the sunset. Guests are encouraged to sample the hotel's famous tequila sunset (with Blackberry brandy instead of Grenadine like its sister drink, tequila sunrise) cocktail any time of day. Rooms here have character with terraces and hammocks overlooking the water, hand-carved furniture, traditional Mexican-style bedspreads, and charming decorative accents. All rooms have a ceiling fan, a free-standing air conditioning unit, and a hairdryer (upon request).
