Blushing brides—such a charming and antiquated concept!—fit right in at this venerable honeymoon hotel perched on a hill high on the east side of town overlooking Acapulco Bay. Various renovations over the years have updated the property since its 1950s heyday, but this grande dame isn't into trends. Bathtubs are scarce in the 260 spacious but simple casitas, and the linens and towels feel more Fieldcrest than Frette. Still, old-school panache abounds. Waiters balancing room-service trays (complete with flower vases) steer pink and white jeeps from the hotel's kitchen each morning to deliver breakfast to each casita's door. A shuttle leaves every 20 minutes to bring guests to the beach club at the foot of the hills, where pools are set like glassy ponds amid boulders and palms. (You can always be lazy and float in your casita's private plunge pool instead.) A sunset dinner at the French-Mexican Bellavista restaurant is the perfect way to end the day.—Maribeth Mellin
