Fiesta Americana Villas Acapulco is an upper-middle-range hotel located in Acapulco’s Golden Zone. The hotel is set in a prime location on Playa Condesa, within a five-minute walk of the many dining and entertainment options found along Avenida Costera Miguel Aleman. Its 324 simple guest rooms offer private balconies with ocean views and bathrooms with shower/tub combos. Pools are large and include some intriguing decorative features, but the beach is crowded and the on-site restaurants are dull. Consider the Fairmont Pierre Marques for a quieter beach and higher-quality restaurants.
This buzzing hotel is ideal for guests
interested in animated beaches and high-energy nightlife.
people rather than the decor that define the atmosphere at Fiesta Americana. The
hotel itself is forgettable but if you’ve come to Acapulco looking for a party,
you’ve found it. Fiesta Americana attracts a mix of singles and groups. There
are plenty of adults clinking beers in the pool, but a playground, shallow area
of the pool, and Kids’ Club help to maintain a family-friendly atmosphere.
lobby and sprawling pool area keep things from feeling overcrowded. The beach
is the exception, jam-packed with wall-to-wall lounge chairs. The energy wanes
in the restaurants, which were virtually deserted during our visit. The food is
unexceptional and there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance, so
it’s no surprise that most guests choose to dine elsewhere.
some clever pool features, the hotel looks undeniably basic overall. Guest rooms and facilities are appealing
enough, but there’s little to differentiate it from the many other hotels lined
along the Costera.
Fiesta Americana is located in Acapulco’s Golden Zone on Avenida
Costera Miguel Aleman. It’s an
overdeveloped stretch of road, high on traffic and noise, but it’s also the
city’s primary tourist hub. There are dozens of restaurants, bars, and shops
found in either direction, right outside the hotel.
The hotel backs onto lively Playa Condesa, one of Acapulco’s
busiest beaches. It’s an excellent base for water sports, but the sands tend to
be crowded and there are a lot of persistent vendors passing by. Slightly quieter Playa Icacos is found
two-and-a-half miles down the coast.
It’s a 12-minute walk to the shops of Galerias Diana, and
CICI Waterpark is less than a five-minute drive away. Zocalo and La Quebrada
can be reached in a 20-minute drive, and Acapulco International Airport is a
little over 30 minutes away.
Fiesta Americana are bright and modern enough. Sand-colored walls and bed runners
complement deep blue artwork and sofas to create a mellow, beachy ambiance. Flat-panel TVs sit atop light-wood dressers and pairs of chairs are set beside small,
glass-topped tables. All rooms include mini-fridges and coffeemakers. Narrow
balconies with full or partial ocean views are furnished with plastic tables and chairs.
look a touch less polished with their drab tiling and off-brand toiletries.
Long countertops with wall-mounted hairdryers are set outside rooms containing
the toilets and shower/tub combos. Guest rooms here are inviting overall, but lack the wow
factor you might expect from an upper-mid-range hotel. Larger suites include jetted tubs and
microwaves, and some feature full kitchens and separate living areas.
Eye-catching pools, a busy beach, and several
main pool is visually interesting with a winding layout, drops in elevation,
and some infinity edges. Curved wooden bridges stretch across the pool and
there are a few pretty rock and garden features. Large square shelters shade
most of the beige loungers and daybeds surrounding the pool. A few sets of
loungers are set directly in the shallower waters, creating a floating effect.
A flight of
stairs towards the back of the main pool leads down to a smaller curved pool
surrounded by more rows of lounge chairs, as well as a palapa snack bar. From
here, the path continues to the hotel’s small, congested beach. The beach is
packed with vendors and tourists, which makes it a challenge to find a spot
without umbrellas and chairs blocking the view of the bay.
poolside restaurant is Maima, a plain open-air restaurant that offers snacks
during the afternoon. The other two
restaurants, Chula Vista and La Crespolina, are equally unremarkable, in terms
of both decor and food. Chula Vista does offer pleasant views over the coast,
but its partial-open-air layout doesn’t allow for much breeze and the interior
can get quite stuffy and hot. Chula Vista normally serves breakfast and lunch
while La Crespolina serves dinner, but the two had inexplicably switched roles
during our visit. There’s also a lackluster Lobby Bar with a pool table and a
few TVs that are usually tuned to sports.
business center is set within one corner of a variety shop. Despite the
slightly odd location, it’s an attractive center with dividers providing
privacy between the stations. The hotel also offers a large, impressive fitness
center, but there’s a daily fee to use the facilities. Free Wi-Fi is available
throughout the hotel, and there’s also a playground and Kids’ Club on-site.
