Fodor's Review

Perhaps Acapulco's signature resort, this hilltop haven is particularly popular with honeymooners. (The company motto is actually "Where children are seldom seen, but often created.") There are a variety of quarters, from one-bedroom units to deluxe private casitas complete with small private pools. Room interiors are a little dated, but nobody seems to mind because of the enchanting bay views. Since the property is extremely spread out (all rooms are at ground level),

transportation is by pink-and-white Jeeps. The hotel also provides transportation to its private beach club. A continental breakfast is delivered to your room each morning.

Watch the lights come on around Acapulco Bay

Although not state-of-the-art, Las Brisas remains a premiere destination in Acapulco. I have found Las Brisas a wonderful destination on several visits. The location is private, the beach club was gorgeous with breezy gauze-draped gazebos, both fresh and saltwater swimming and wonderful food. My accomodations were more than adequate with hibuscus-strewn pool and bathroom, and the security and respect shown to a single female vacationer by the staff

was exceptional. No matter what the amenities, to sit on the patio of your casita after sunset and watch the lights come on around Acapulco Bay like a necklace of diamonds -- it's a once in a lifetime stay. Las Brisas may have been around awhile -- but this is why it's still there.

A fine hotel with amazing views

Just returned from 4 nights at the Las Brisas. Had a wonderful and relaxing time. The hotel is located away from the center of town which leads to a wonderful escape from the madness below. Amazing views is what will be remembered most. Truly incredible. Wonderful private pools are a welcome touch, especially in the warm evenings. Staff are eager to please. The hotel charges a $20.00 flat rate for tipping, but I had wished they did not because the

staff deserves to get the money themselves. Room service had the best food, even better than the fancy, schmancy restaurants in the area. Most restaurants have great views, but only mediocre food. The individual casita furniture could use updating, but, hey, it's Mexico. The complimentary breakfast is a joke, don't waste your time with it. All in all, a great place to relax. The people are nice, I never felt any stress whatsoever anywhere. The beach club has good views in a private setting. Good food, great coco loco drinks, but the privacy of the casita is best. I really wasn't looking forward to the trip before I went, but I'm really glad I went. Note: I gave the rooms a 4.0, but they really deserved a 3.5. The hotel should also offer in demand movies or something. That would have been nice.

A Pink Fantasy

It is a memorable place with lots of mexican charm. Don't go for the food, go for the ambiance. Don't miss the Sunset Bar. The Beach Club is spectacular.

Not worth the extra money you'll pay....

It had been a dream to think about going to Las Brisas for a week's stay in a Beach Club room with private pool. Unfortunately, 2 days into our stay, we were making plans to return home earlier. The Pools/Terraces are not as private as Las Brisas leads you to believe. In addition, half of the window and door panels are screens that cannot be closed off, so you're likely to hear your neighbor's television, etc. This fact also impacts the air conditioner's

ability to keep the room cool. I know if takes a LOT of personnel to keep this resort up and going, but, after staying there, I think the $20 service charge per room, per day is steep. The daily continental breakfast consisted of (3) pieces of fruit and (3) rolls with a pot of coffee. It's with GREAT sadness that I couldn't recommend anyone going out of their way financially to stay at Las Brisas.
