Once again, a marvelous stay at this Acapulco classic. This time we spent nine days in a Master Suite, one of those with jacuzzi. We upgraded from the Junior Suite we'd planned to stay in as the hotel was less than full (it was the start of the rainy season [tho our weather was perfect]), and management offered a great rate for the upgrade. We may be spoiled for all time as the Master Suites offer a tremendous amount of outdoor lounging space in addition to the private pool (standard on all but a few of the cottages) and, of course, a glorious view. (Just kidding about the spoiled for all time: we previously stayed in a 'regular' private pool room as well as a 'beach club' casita -- they're all great, and very reasonable.) The suite was high up on the ocean side, and what with the tip-free room service, the improved food (not bad before, but a new chef has been added), complete privacy, plus an adopted cat for amusement, we rarely left the suite. We spent a day down at the hotel's excellent La Concha Beach club -- and did eat twice at the Bellavista, the hotel's main restaurant. Two quite good meals, again noticeably improved, and as always the service was lovely. Do be aware that dinner here unfolds at a relaxed pace -- have another glass of whatever and enjoy the extraordinary view of Acapulco bay. Enjoy also the exceptionally friendly and courteous service you will receive throughout the hotel -- we have stayed all over the world and have never, ever, seen its like, virtually everyone with a ready smile and a willingness to help with anything you need. Like I say, our third trip, and we will surely go again whenever in the mood to do nothing but sleep, eat, read, and stare out at the mesmerizing views.
Now, one issue to be aware of that has nothing to do with Las Brisas. Be warned that, when arriving at the Acapulco airport, you will be 'buttonholed' but men in an office just outside Customs/Immigration. These guys pretend to be a sort of information and/or transportation service for arriving visitors -- but in reality they are shilling for the Mayan Hotel. We wasted 15 minutes with them on our first visit to Acapulco a couple years ago before realizing it was a scam, that they're selling... well, who knows? -- seeming-freebies/condos, I guess. Anyway it's a hard (if clever) sell, and a huge waste of time. We're wise to it now of course, but this visit they snagged two other couples who were to take the Gray Line into town with us. Gray Line personnel are not allowed to interfere, and I myself was 'warned' away in no uncertain terms when I peeked into the 'office' to see how long our fellow travelers were likely to be 'held up,' and possibly to clue them to the scam. No luck, and we ended up taking a cab to the hotel rather than wait any longer. It's the only blot on a great destination -- like I say, be warned, and don't get taken in.
