Located along Acapulco’s main tourist road — the buzzing Avenida Costera Miguel Aleman — these affordable hotels provide easy access to lively beaches, restaurants, bars, and shops. Take a look at the best value hotels in Acapulco, Mexico.
Copacabana Beach Hotel is a three-pearl hotel located in Acapulco’s tourist-friendly Golden Zone. Countless bars, restaurants, and shops stretch in both directions along Avenida Costera Miguel Alemán out front, and the sands of curved Santa Lucia Bay are accessible out back. The hotel’s 430 guest rooms are basic but inviting with flat-screen TVs and some ocean views from private balconies. There’s no wow factor here, but there are eight restaurants and bars, a large pool, and a fitness center.
Ritz Acapulco is a lower-middle-range hotel located in the city’s Golden Zone on prime beachfront of Acapulco Bay, making it a convenient base for water sports, shopping, and bar-hopping. Its 240 rooms are generic but clean, with the majority featuring furnished balconies and shower/tub combos. The hotel’s all-inclusive package is extremely budget-friendly, but the buffet meals are only average and the medium-size pool gets quite busy. The hotel is filled with guests happily piling their plates with food and jumping into the pool to join the aqua aerobics class.
Sands Acapulco Hotel & Bungalows is a two-and-a-half pearl hotel located in the tourist heavy Golden Zone. The hotel’s 59 guest rooms and bungalows are clean, but their decor is drab. Geared towards families with young children, the hotel offers three playgrounds, mini-golf, a lovely outdoor pool, and an inviting, open-air restaurant. There are dozens of shops, bars, and restaurants found within a five-minute walk of the hotel, and Playa Condesa is located across the street.
