When wandering garden paths to beachside bungalows, dodging indolent iguanas, you can imagine what J. Paul Getty had in mind when he chose these mango and lime groves beside Bahía de Puerto Marqués for his tropical retreat on the east side of Acapulco. Back in 1957, when oil was gold and Getty was called "the Richest Man in the World," his colony of midcentury-modern bungalows beside a rock-walled house and small pool was an escapist's delight. The Pierre languished over time, until Fairmont Hotels poured millions into a complete renovation in 2001—and today, you can once again lounge here in poolside glamour. The 335 rooms, suites, villas, and bungalows are now comfy rather than flashy, with sandy colors and lots of cool marble and glass. The Mexican fusion cuisine at Tabachin includes dishes like Baja lobster with fried noodle soup. Two golf courses provide a sprawling green barrier between the hotel and reality, and guests have use of the facilities—including a Willow Stream Spa and the Yuca Club disco—at the adjacent Acapulco Princess, another Fairmont property. The long beach is virtually deserted save for joggers, wanderers, and clutches of sunbathers. However, the surf is usually too rough for swimming.—Maribeth Mellin
