Quinta Real Acapulco lies on the famed “Punta Diamante" (Diamond Point) stretching out between the Pacific Ocean and the Bay of Puerto Marques. It is convenient to the airport and just a few minutes away from Acapulco Bay to the west. This area enjoys great beach weather year round. Quinta Real is an upscale, “boutique hotel” with a complete and luxurious infrastructure, 74 suites on five levels for guests, and a corporate commitment to service and quality. The architecture is simple and modern, in a tropical style, and the installations are a showplace for Mexican arts and artisanship. Quinta Real Hotels & Resorts of Guadalajara is the owner and operator of Quinta Real Acapulco and seven other luxury boutique accommodations throughout Mexico.

The layout of the hotel is simple. It lies on a hillside, with the reception area at the top, and with the suites and other features cascading downwards towards the beach below. The neighbors on the cliff side are all million-dollar private residences. From the street, one goes down past the lobby bar, then the restaurant, the spa and fitness room, then down past the three pools to the palapa-roofed beach cabañas. The sunsets are beautiful and can be witnessed from the suites and from almost every other vantage point on the property.

Lobby. The entrance to the property is through two large gates, watched over by security personnel. The open air lobby and reception of Quinta Real is regal, as its name implies, with hand-painted, carved wood furniture and a vaulted, 60-foot ceiling lined with palms.
