We had planned to stay in Acapulco for five days of our two week trip to Mexico. We had booked at El Hotelito based on the reviews available on this site. When we arrived at the hotel at around 2pm, our room wasn't ready. We waited for about an hour in the lobby for our room. To their credit, they offered us a complimentary beverage while we were waiting. When we got to our room, we were quite disappointed. First of all, the Hotelito does not have an elevator and we were on the third floor. It wasn't a problem just a bit of a pain when you forgot something in the room. Second of all, El Hotelito is not a modern hotel, it's an old Acapulco joint that's been revamped wth a bit of white paint. The room itself was relatively clean. The rest of the hotel, not so much. The cushions on the chairs next to the pool were stained and so were the curtains in the room. It all felt a bit old and dingy. The location however is good. Close to the beach and restaurants. The staff is friendly but very young and somewhat inexperienced. If you are 20 and want a cheap place to go party, this might be for you but it wasn't for us. After two nights, we decided to leave and go back to Mexico D.F. sooner than planned. It took many many weeks and many emails to get our money back, but we managed to get refunded for two night.
