John F. and Jackie Kennedy honeymooned here. John Travolta and Denzel Washington have both escaped to this idyllic retreat (no, not together). But it’s no surprise this idyllic escape has a famous following — Las Brisas is stacked like a grand wedding cake in the hills above Acapulco Bay. The suites and casitas are tucked amid blooming hibiscus bushes and offer simple luxury: big cushy beds, marble baths and shuttered doors that open onto private pools. The views of the bay are best from the Sunset Bar, high above the hotel and dinner at the on-site BellaVista restaurant includes a full panorama of twinkling lights around the bay, making for an especially romantic end to the day. Private shuttles ferry guests to the La Concha Beach Club’s, where guests play in freshwater pools or snorkel along the rocky coastline. Grilled fresh fish, ceviche and guacamole accompany chilled cervezas at the club’s restaurant.
In the Area
Acapulco was once the playground of Hollywood stars and moguls, and although those golden days are long gone, there’s a certain renaissance under way in this rakish resort town. Get into the retro spirit with a water skiing session courtesy of Gordon Rathbun at Ski Paradise, then visit the legendary Hotel Los Flamingos, a 1930s-era hotspot that has hosted celebrities like John Wayne and Cary Grant, before heading to see the famous cliff divers at La Quebrada.
How to Get There
Where to start... Las Brisas is something everyone must experience, and not for 1 or 2 nights, you must stay here a minimum 3 nights to truly enjoy the Casitas, and then maybe the rest of the resort.
Really couldn’t care who has been here before it should be all about your stay, enjoy it. the views and weather are just spectacular.
Yes there are a few areas that they could improve (speed of service, technical issues such as the phones), but otherwise you should be here to relax and enjoy.
La Concha down the beach is a must too, (see if you catch Nancy, as she is adorable and great server).
The sunsets will blow your mind away every day.
AWESOME!IT was more than we expected!STAYED at las BRISA for our 18th anniversary!WE loved it & plan to go back!A special SHOUTOUT to ELGUADO & PAUBLO for taking
Care of all of our needs.
My husband and I absolutely enjoyed, relaxed and rested during our two week vacation at the Las Brisas Hotel in Acapulco! Our delightful casita with a private pool and terraza overlooking the beautiful Acapulco Bay was beyond amazing! We loved having our complimentary breakfast of coffee, danish rolls and biscuits and fresh fruits every morning while taking in the spectacular view of the bay. The weather was just perfect everyday. The staff like Soledad, Mirabel and the pink and white jeep drivers like Alberto were very helpful and attentive. The jeeps came to pick us up within 5 minutes of being called. Each day we were surprised with creative and artistic towels and flowers shaped into hearts, swans, elephants on our bed that made our hearts smile. I loved seeing the red and white hibiscus flowers that the mindfully floated on the pool water as well as placed around various spots in the casita. We enjoyed soaking in the gentle sun at the terraza and feeling the gentle breezes on our faces. The food and ambience at the Bella Vista restaurant was fantastic! Acapulco is just beautiful and we enjoyed the people we met.
It really helped a lot to have read the Trip Advisor whereby people had recommended Sebastián Hernandez of Acapulcoforall.com. I contacted him by email and he was quick to respond. We arrived at the airport at midnight and it was very reassuring for him to greet us with a smile and with our names on a placard. He made us feel very comfortable with his trustworthiness, reliability and politeness. He was really great and was very helpful and served as a great resource to us.
We definitely would come back and stay at Las Brisas again! We still remember the breathtaking sunsets we saw at the Sunset Bar. We had the most beautiful days everyday for two weeks. For those who love privacy, romance, great service , breathtaking views and a wonderful place to relax .... we highly recommend Las Brisas.
Thank you to the Las Brisas staff for the enchanting and memorable vacation. We have traveled many parts of the world and we simply love Acapulco and the wonderful Las Brisas Hotel.

First, don’t worry about scary stories about Mexico; it’s safe and wonderful!
The views from this hilltop resort are fabulous. A casita comes with a private pool. Sunsets and margaritas at the sunset bar are the best. Dinner at Bella vista is good but venture out too. The private salt water pool at concha beach can be reached by free resort shuttle. Lunch there was good too.
Prices are very reasonable in all categories. We can’t wait to return!
It was the fourth time in 8 years that we went to this hotel. However this time we were somewhat disappointed. It is clear that there is a lack of investment in maintenance of the installations, specifically the Beach Club La Concha. Toilets are in need of modernization and repair. Deckchairs are quite uncomfortable. Ladders that lead you into the swimming pool are dirty and slippery. Transport to and from the Club as well as within the hotel is done with cars that have at least 150000 miles.
On a more positive note the restaurant Bella Vista is excellent, the service is superb, the view spectacular and the food very good.
