El Presidente Acapulco is a favorite place to stay for international tourists, as it is strategically located right above Condesa Beach and on the Costera Alemán, not far from some of the most visited bars and restaurants of this port city. The views are to the bay or to the mountains. Many units are held as fractional ownership, administered by the hotel reservations staff. The building has 161 units on 12 floors.

Meetings & Conventions: 

El Presidente has several meeting and function rooms for business events or private social gatherings. The Dali ballroom is a great location for celebrations, banquets, parties and large business meetings. It can handle 250 for a sit-down dinner, 200 in conference formation and 46 in a U-shaped table arrangement. Focolare and Perla de Lare are private meeting spaces for up to 20. There is also a business center with fax, computers and copying services. Internet access is available throughout the building.


For those who prefer fresh water, El Presidente has a large swimming pool (with three different depths) and a special wading area for children. The beachfront is quiet, with services for hotel guests. The waves of the bay are large enough to be interesting, but not so strong as to be dangerous to young swimmers. The landscaping around the pool area is tropical and lush. Be sure to take advantage of the palapas located in the pool area and the beachfront sun deck.
