We got a miramar suite which was huge with a very nice view overlooking the bay. The hotel is old but better than we expected since we read a lot of reviews. Location is very good food is nice but not extraordinary. People that work there were very nice to us.

This hotel has gotten some bad reviews. It is old but nice. We were on the 11floor and the room was very clean with a superb view of the water. The staff were all friendly and very helpful especially Norma the manager. It is located in a great spot to walk either way to shops. The pool area is nice...

The hotel is old and unkept. It's filthy, rooms have mold, the linens are stained, things are broken, many things are in need of repair, and the service is slow and not helpful. It's pathetic and disgusting. To top it off they had no internet during our visit. NEVER STAY AT EL PRESIDENTE!!! We paid for 5 nights online and...

I spent a week there with my family. I stay there everytime I travel to Acapulco and I love it. It is always full of new surprises. This time the rooms where refurnished.

This was definitely not the best hotel we have stayed at in Acapulco. I would suggest doing more research and picking a better hotel. The hotel felt very tired and old. Refresh needed. The staff were helpful and rooms were clean.
