Hotel Gilda was absolutely fantastic. It's in the beach town of pie de la cuesta, about 10 miles outside of Acapulco. It's well worth the extra time to go here. It's quiet, serene, and the lagoon is just across the main road. The hotel was absolutely beautiful, full of coconut palms, wildlife, and sits right on the beach. We woke up to breakfast every morning on the beach. The staff was amazingly friendly, sincere and accommodating. My friend and I are both vegetarians and the kitchen was more than happy to make special meals to fit our dietary needs and even made sure if it was ok to use olive oil for cooking or not. Fantastic! Also the food was so fresh and delicious. Papayas grow right outside the kitchen. We had a very late check in and the night guard was there to greet us and show us to our room. The beach was amazing and on this visit we had it mostly all to ourselves. I would recommend hotel Gilda to anyone and hope to visit again soon!

We cannot begin to say how awesome our experience was at Hotel Gilda. If relaxing and being treated like family is what you are looking for, then this is the right choice for you. Gilda was super friendly but then she had to travel outside of Mexico so we were taken care of by her staff...they are simply the most caring, simple, joyful and genuine people...the food they cook is super fresh and incredibly tasteful, we decided to go to Acapulco one day and regreted having left the hotel, we then came back and stayed there all day all night relaxing and eating their great food. The beach is completely can go for super long walks and really enjoy your own self and the people you are with... We will definitely come back if in the future we end up in Acapulco again... Thanks Gilda, you have a great hotel and staff...all the best...

Nice small beach hotel, with good food and very nice service, but not boutique and not much eco... Good standard according to Mexican levels, but a bit expensive. Endless beaches, tough surfs, turtles and horseback riding on the beach and a poor neighborhood with a few local quite good restaurants gives you a taste of the real Mexico.

Hotel Gilda es una excepcional manera de tener unas vacaciones en familia o con tu pareja en corte romántico... tiene habitaciones que son como pequeños Depas donde puedes encontrar una cocina equipada para sentirte como en casa y cocinarle a tu pareja o a tu familia y vivir la playa como un local. La cocina del hotel está abierta y ves ahí a un equipo maravilloso que se esmera por darte platillos con un toque amoroso y un Sazon inolvidable. Todos sonríen y son muy amables y atentos todo el tiempo! Gilda te hace sentir especial. Es una gran anfitriona. Amable, sonriente, cálida... llegue un día después de mi cumple y ese día me sorprendió con un pastel delicioso! Regresaremos pronto. Sin dudas mi lugar favorito en pie de la cuesta!
