NileGuide Expert tip:
Maids will unpack and pack your luggage for you if you ask them, thus making the most of the extra service charge you are obliged to pay.
Las Brisas, opened in 1957, was already one of the world's most famous hotels long before it was listed in "1,000 Places to Visit Before You Die." "Dream It, Feel It, Live It" is the Las Brisas message; generations of lovers have done exactly that, high above Acapulco Bay. Countless celebrities have hidden discreetly in the signature pink and white casitas, where tulipan flowers are strewn across the beds and float in the private swimming pools. The hotel's location is unsurpassed, with each casita positioned to maximize the stunning views from the hillside above the Carretera Escenica. Continental breakfast is delivered daily to each casita. The pink and white automatic jeeps that ferry guests around the property are available for rent – ask for the one "autographed" by Frank Sinatra for a true Rat Pack-era ride. The Chapel of Peace crowns the mountaintop above the hotel and is worth a visit.
