I’ve been using Hoteles Acapulco web page for long time. I’ve checked it a few times against other pages and here it always gave me the best deal without any hidden costs that pop out in the last moment. Frankly speaking I haven’t tried to book a car with Hoteles Acapulco, I didn’t need to, but I have booked two different hotels and once a hotel and flight package. The three times I used the web page I was very satisfied. It is easy to follow, I’m not an internet geek and I didn’t have any problems with the booking and the whole booking process was pretty fast. Once I wanted to stay at Acapulco Playa Suites that I had already known but instead I chose a promotion they offered at that time at Acapulco Copacabana Hotel and I paid almost the same. I have already recommended their services to my friends and they were also happy with their vacation.

I booked a trip with flight and hotel included and it was very user friendly, was even able to modify my trip and add transportation. Nice to have it all under one roof. Email support always answered in a timely manor. Will use MexResorts for our next trip for sure.
