This luxurious piece of paradise was also in the James Bond movie License to Kill (1989). Among many amenities and rooms, it has three pools, a terrace on the roof, a gym, a tennis court, a theater, a dance club, an outdoor lift that moves along the many levels of the hotel, and too much more to mention.
Real Romance in Acapulco
If you're planning a visit to Acapulco, there are many romantic spots to consider in addition to Paradise Hotel. One of the best-known is Las Brisas, which has welcomed couples for generations. Its private casitas are set on a hilltop (you reach them in a pink Jeep provided by the hotel) and they feature a private or semi-private swimming pool.
From the terrace, there's a sweeping view of Acapulco Bay. And as you look down on Paradise Hotel, you have the satisfaction of knowing you're really in love -- not just pretending in order to get 15 minutes of fame on TV.
