The four days we spent there were worse than I could have imagined. The place is a dump with no repairs or maintenance in many many years. 40 yrs ago it might have been nice but it's totally run down now.
Spend a few bucks more and get a room with warm water, a/c that works, clean sheets, and a TV bigger than 13 inch. And you'll at least be able to get a good night sleep, which is impossible in this hotel.
(after many complaints, the mgr said he'd change us to another room but never did. instead he claimed they'd fixed whatever they could; untrue).
Unique Quality: Not unique if found in a 200 peso-per-night hotel, but unique for $700 pesos per night: No hot water for 3 days; phone didn't work, neither did the lockbox or the a/c; plaster crumbling; room smelled of urine; water leak on floor at sink; noise until 3 a.m. was VERY bad, even earplugs didn't help because it shook the whole room. Elevator takes forever. pool is small, crowded, and was evacuated for feces floating in the water. Staff is friendly but cannot do much to a building that hasn't had maintenance for far too long.
Can't even read in your room because the lights are so dim. 9-watt bulbs, no kidding.
Directions: on the Costera, but across street from beach; no easy way to cross the street.
Just got back from a five day four night spree at this hotel.Except from the hotel being 30 years old and showing it age ,the hotel staff were pretty cool,the only problem is the elevators there are two,for 300plus rooms,plus the staff also need to use them,i did see a manager chew out some employees for transporting items in the elvelators while guest were trying to use them.They have a decent restrauth and we had a room across from the street overlooking the bars anf the bunge jump place which was pretty cool.We payed about 50 a night US so it was pretty cool.If you can get that rate with a view i recomend it.i hope to stay there again in November.
Unique Quality: View great overlooking the ocean and the crazy bunge jumpers!!
The Romano Palace is located right in front of the bungee jumping tower on Costera Miguel Aleman in Acapulco. It is not a fancy beach front hotel, but is very reasonably priced at around US$65 per night, tax included. The rooms are clean, and although the front accommodations are noisy, the view is spectacular. Basically, if you plan on partying like an animal, this is an excellent base for you.
A friend and I will be traveling to Mexico and will be spending New Year's Even in Acapulco. It would be great if we could get "insider information" on the best clubs, parties, etc for NYE in Acapulco. Does anyone have clubs that they would recommend??
best new year party in club PALLADIUM..always and always there... see nice sunset form the hill in the club.. also join alebrije, and hip hop in disco beach..
Palladium is a huge disco on the hill overlooking town. Great party.
If you don't want a disco just go to the main strip by the Romano Palace. There are plenty of places from Taco's and Beer to a biker type bar.
ACA will be at 100% occupancy for NYE, and every place will have long lines and be packed to the rafters. Pedrobec gives some good suggestions, as does YVR - for the "Disco Beach" area on the Costera Miguel Aleman at Playa Condesa. This will be THE time of the year to party in ACA and the city will be dancing until 8 or 9 a.m. January 1st.
