Make a holiday rental home or villa in Acapulco, Mexico your home away from home

Acapulco is a city and major sea port on the Pacific coast of Mexico, and an extremely popular tourist destination due to its excellent nightlife and top beaches – making it a direct competitor and more than viable alternative to Cancun, on Mexico’s east coast. The majority of visitors to Acapulco and looking to relax on the beaches during the day and party hard during the night, but Acapulco villas can also be found in quieter, residential areas, which offer a better option for families and couples.

The Four Tops once sang “You’ll be going loco down in Acapulco, if you stay too long”, but with plenty to see and do in the area, that is not necessarily true. The beach is often the first port of call for visitors, with many looking to unwind after a long haul flight.

Water sports take prominence along the beach, with jet skiing, water skiing, scuba diving and snorkelling all popular. Those wishing to head further out into the waters can sign up for a spot of deep sea fishing or sailing, and there are countless other fun options such as banana boats for those seeking a quick thrill. Water quality has been improved over recent years, thanks to $1 billion of investment.

The nightlife in the city is loud and goes on throughout the night and well into the next day, with a mixture of US-style and Latin-style bars and clubs to choose from. Acapulco is an extremely popular Spring Break destination, so expect everywhere to be crammed full of partygoers if you visit during this period of the year (March-April).

Zocalo is the main town square, and a shaded, relaxing place to be during the daytimes. Here you will find the city’s cathedral, a number of fountains, cafes, small restaurants and an altogether more peaceful atmosphere.

Exceptional Group Vacation

5 of 5
Wanted to visit Acapulco with a large group, and hit the Jackpot with booking the Mexico Mansion. With up to 13 suites, this place can easily handle the larger gatherings and yet you don't feel like you are on top of one another. With stunning views of Acapulco Bay, you can relax in the peace and quiet of your own secluded villa, and yet you are only minutes from downtown if you want to get out and explore the night life. The meals are truly exceptional here with a well trained staff. You can set the menu with the staff or just ask them to surprise you with one fantastic dish after another. And don't forget to try what has to be the best Margarita you will ever have - either frozen or on the rocks, they know what they are doing. Rooms are large and spacious, with views from every room of the bay. Fine linens, very comfortable beds, and the kind of service that you only experience in the finest resorts. If you are looking for a resort that can handle a large group, look no further than the Mexico Mansion. Steve (the owner) will do right by you and ensure that your vacation is one to remember.

Best holiday ever!!

5 of 5
All I can say is "wow". The villa is bigger than I expected. The furnishings were great (beds, linens, sun loungers, etc). And the views!!. The infinity pool looks out over Acapulco bay with stunning day and night views. The ocean breeze keeps the temp comfortable (indoor spaces have aircon) enough to sit out on the covered veranda or roof top deck. It is your own private resort. Fully staffed with friendly bi lingual locals who are extremely helpful. There is even a certified chef and massage therapist on staff! You can do everythig, or nothing, here at the mansion. Go into town, just a short ride away, or lounge at the pool with the swim up bar. Complete with wifi, if you need to work, but why?? Food is amazing. Flor and Tania can whip up anything. Plus, they do the shopping. Life is so good here at the Magestic Mansion.
