Why Stay At Las Brisas Acapulco
Get a taste of Acapulco's iconic glamour at this historic pink palace with bungalow-style casitas and private plunge pools.
Set atop the ruins of a Spanish fort, this modern, split-level hotel amid 40 acres of palm trees and hibiscus has sweeping views of the quiet Bay of Puerto Marqués just south of Acapulco Bay. But that's not the only image that will steal the show at the 251-casita property: everything at Las Brisas—from the gray stone-accented rooms to the striped jeeps that take you across the road to private La Concha Beach—is done in festive flamingo pink and white. More than half of the casitas have private pools; the others share a pool with a neighbor or two. The property also has three public pools—including two saltwater tide pools—three restaurants, a deli, and two bars.
If you don't want to splurge on a suite or Brisas Beach Club room, opt for a third-floor casita, which also has a private plunge pool and stellar views.
The hotel is a bit removed from the Acapulco action, but the concierge offers plenty of tours, including a jeep safari through town (complete with a lagoon-side picnic).
Arrive at Juan N. Álvarez; International Airport (ACA), which is approximately 15 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 30 minutes of travel time.Carretera Escénica 5255, Fraccionamiento Las Brisas, Acapulco de Juarez, Guerrero, Mexico

Why We Love Acapulco
Acapulco has been famous since the 1930s for the daredevil cliff divers of La Quebrada, who plunge 130 feet into a narrow channel less than 25 feet across. Arrive early for a good view. (At the 10:30 p.m. show, they dive holding flaming torches.)
Fab Flavors: Zibu, just up the road from Las Brisas, serves an unconventional but delectable Mexican-Thai fusion menu with views over the bay. Carretera Eséncia s/n, Fraccionamiento Glomar, Acapulco. Read More
Top Shopping: If you're not up to making the three-hour drive inland to the Taxco, a silver mining town, you can get decent deals—or at least assured quality—on fine Taxco silver jewelry at P&P Jewelers right by the cliff divers at La Quebrada (there's another branch in the cruise terminal).
Late-Night Spot: Dance-club revelers should head to Palladium, a cliff-top club with dance floors that run right up to massive plate-glass windows overlooking the bay. Carretera Escénica s/n. Read More
