Acapulco has been a popular beach destination for ages and now there is a better way to enjoy its charm: A villa vacation. Forget crowded hotel lobbies, long check-in lines, small bedrooms, sharing the swimming pool with dozens of strangers and exorbitant hotel food and beverage prices… Instead, welcome to the world of luxury villa vacations…more affordable than you think!

Many people find that spending their vacation staying at a hotel isn’t truly a vacation: guests are bound by limited swimming pool hours, restaurant dining hours, set menu choices and constant crowds. When a traveler arrives at a hotel room, with all his clothes packed for hours in a suitcase, he must pull out the iron and board from the closet and “work” during his “vacation”. If he wants to secure a tanning chair by the hotel’s pool, he’d better wake up early to reserve his space.

Instead, imagine yourself arriving at your selected villa (from over 150 unique luxury properties) and being cordially greeted by your own, uniformed, villa staff: chambermaids, waiters, kitchen staff and cook or Chef (all staff is included in the villa rate). While you quickly change into your bathing suit and request that a Margarita be brought by your waiter to the panoramic-ocean-view pool area, the staff will place your party’s luggage in each corresponding room and the chambermaid may unpack your clothes in the drawers and closet. She will also ask if you need to have her iron any clothes to use later on.

Prior to your arrival, the cook went grocery shopping for all the raw materials needed to prepare the food menu that you selected so that the welcome hors d'oeuvres are ready as soon as you enter your villa. As opposed to pre-set hotel menus, your cook, or chef, prepares any dishes you desire: a special menu for the kids, a vegetarian dish for a family member, and even kosher food and meals. Better yet, meals are served any time you want them (as opposed to worrying if the hotel’s restaurant is still open). How’s that for service?

Another benefit of renting from Acapulco Vacation Villas is that we offer complimentary concierge services. From the moment you choose the right villa for your group, a concierge will make all the necessary arrangements to make your vacation a wonderful experience. That may include arranging airport transportation, crib and high-seat rental for children, hiring a babysitter for an adults’ special night out on town, arranging special arts & crafts activities for the kids, getting an aqua-aerobics class in your swimming pool to start the day with a boost of energy, reserving a relaxing massage by the ocean-view pool area, reserving a yacht rental for fishing or for a relaxing cruise in the bay or making reservations for a day of golf.

For example, a five bedroom villa with spectacular ocean and bay views which houses ten people comfortably, costs $550 dollars per night during the low season (April 16 through December 15), or $55 dollars per person, per night, including the villa staff: cook, waiter and chambermaid. That is great value! You may see more information about this villa at:

So the next time you travel, let Acapulco Vacation Villas pamper you and your loved ones and show you why Acapulco is a magnificent destination in which to invest. Live your dream.
