This is My ACAPULCO Micro Beach Pad. I encourage you take the time and read ALL the details to this condo -- so you can make the BEST decision for yourself, and decide if this is the right place for you.
I bought this little condo while I was studying my graduate degree in Mexico City. I loved it because I'm a traveler. And, as a tourist to Mexico I get to really experience how "real" native Acapulco people live and it gets me out of my bubbled world of high society and comfort zones.
I use it on some weekends to go out and surf. It's decorated with my own California beach style. My maid lives right there at the complex and she takes care of this condo for me.
The micro condo is the tiniest little beach condo; it's "cute" for lack of a better word. I provide my guests with genuine hospitality and personal service. It is not a luxury hotel with grand rooms and formal service. It's cheap and affordable so you can spend your money doing other things. You will find this condo to be a tasteful little styled beach house, beautiful surroundings, and also a local taste of the "real" ACAPULCO while you're driving to the community. That means you'll pass a few bumpy dirt roads... off the beaten path.. and maybe see a cow or two...and see people on bikes or selling their juices on the street.
This is an "economically priced" condo in a decent middle class gated community in Mexico. Natives from Acapulco live in the community -- though most are weekend people. This is a "local" community feel and not urban upscale hotel life. This condo is not for the fancy at heart. If you don't mind interacting with the native Acapulco community, who are super friendly, then this condo provides that experience.
DISTANCE FROM BEACH:
Please note, the map on Airbnb did NOT allow me to pinpoint the exact location of the condo as it is situated in a NEW development, so its give or take 10 minutes from the Punta Diamante Beach area.
This condo is located in the new development area known as Punta Diamante or Llano Largo and it is not near the Costera where all the bars and nightclub life rests. However, you can take a collectivo/otherwise known as "taxi cabs" to the Main Costera but it is a good 30 minutes away from where the condo is situated. I usually recommend a car if you rent the condo or get ready to walk 5 minutes to the grand entrance of the community to take "collectivos/taxi cabs" to get around.
To make your stay more enjoyable, I'm available to assist you, but I won't be there in person nagging you :)
When you stay here I want you to feel at home and enjoy the real Mexican neighborhood. Although my condo is situated within a gated community, I love that when you leave the community, you get the feel of the real local town here --- like fruit and juice stands at the corner, carpenters making their craft, etc. The community has a small park, too.
You can take a cab right outside the gates for $12 pesos or like a dollars worth.
In 5 minutes by taxi or car you're near the Walmart, Starbucks, Cinema, restaurants, beaches, Fairmont Hotel, and convenient transportation to all parts of the city.
Pool access and everything else around the community.

Estupenda! Jess es un excelente anfitrión y su casa tiene todo lo que se requiere para pasar unas vacaciones con todo lo necesario, su apartamento es cálido, limpio y confortable. Gracias Jess!
We had a great time at the beach pad! The decoration is beautiful and we felt at home instantly! The owner is very attentive to questions and did everything to make our stay even better.
This place is highly recomendable and we will definitely come back!
Coming by car is advised so you can move around more quickly than by cab or bus.
Thank you! Me and my friends enjoyed the stay in Acapulco very much! The flat is very cute and sets you into the Beach-mode.
Jess was super helpful - even though he wasn´t at the flat he answered immediately. Due to the location I think it would be recommendable to have a car. I would def recommend the stay!
La casa está divina, la decoración te hace sentir como en casa. Baños y cocina super limpios y cuenta con todos los servicios como internet, agua caliente, aire acondicionado. El condominio muy agradable y siempre hay una alberca disponible. Jess muy atento y excelente host. Redomendadísimo! Bonfil está a 20-30 minutos y revolcadero a unos 15. Bonfil es la playa más bonita y con mejor ambiente. Revolcadero es más familiar y llena de hoteles. Asi que la casa tiene muy buena ubicación y se ahorra mucho dinero cocinando en casa. Muy buena experiencia!
The beach pad was comfortably and tastefully set up, as shown in the photos. The pool out front was usually vacant, but when it wasn't we used one of the other pools in the complex. The beach close by is amazing - wonderful sand, quite warm water and pretty empty. Jess responded to our questions very quickly. The price is perfect for this place. Highly recommended!
The micro white beach pad, has everything you need for a great vacation in acapulco. Thanks for making us feel in our house. See you soon!
The apartment was very nice. Easy access to the swimming pool, property well maintained. Our family enjoyed our stay at the apartment.
