We stayed there during December 2001 and all I can say is that it is the most wonderful place to be. Even though the Princess (sister hotel) is rated higher, I cannot see why. The Pierre Marquis is outstanding in all respects. The food is excellent, the staff friendly andhelpful, the golf great (although expensive)
The rooms were just ok and there was no tv when we were there. I understand that has changed now. We knew that going in and it was ok not to have one although there is a big screen tv with direct tv in the main lobby room.
The only minus is the chairs at the beach and pools. They say no reserving etc. but when we arrived after 8am all were taken and no one was there just towels on chairs. The next day I watched as an employee put towels on chairs himself. I asked a Mexican City guest who said if you pay him he will do it and I watched as these chairs were vacant except for the towel all day. We took a trip into Acapulco and watched the divers and saw the main drag ( very busy) it was a day trip and not too expensive. To summarize I would NOT stay anywhere else in Acapulco ever again.
THe Pierre Marquis is by far the absolute best for any price. ( although the week just following Christmas is very busy). We just loved it there. Anywhere else we go we compare the hotel to the Pierre Marquis. This year we are off to La Romana Costa Caribe and hoping for a good time Lets hope.
