Elcano Hotel is a first-class property, ideally situated for visitors to the area. It has a welcoming atmosphere that emphasizes friendly and hospitable service. The retro-style, turquoise-and-white lobby, and beachside pool area are the closest you can get to a South Beach, Miami, atmosphere in Acapulco, and its popular open-air restaurant adds to the lively waterfront scene. On the whole, the Elcano reminds you of a set from a classic Elvis-in-Acapulco movie. The Elcano is a deluxe hotel on a strip of the Acapulco Bay shore.
