Costera is the heart of tourist area of Acapulcoo. It follows the shoreline and its lined with hotels, restaurants, shops, service outfits, etc. One can walk on it and go back along the endless beach. Taxis, buses and "collectivos" ply along it every few seconds.

I agree with the prior answer. El Cano is especially beautiful with delicious food and a beautiful pool. I also like the Malibu for a smaller venue. Both are near each other with spectacular views of the bay.
