Rates are for the rental of the entire home. Sometimes
a reduced rate can apply at Villas or Casas that rent
by bedrooms. For example, if you occupy only 1 or 2
bedrooms (2-4 persons) some may offer a special rate.
Therefore, it is very important that you submit the
correct number of guests in your party when you are
inquiring about rates and making reservations.
Damage and Telephone Guarantee Deposit
A security/damage guarantee cash deposit is required for all
reservations. Amounts vary depending on the
property and are not included in the rates.
Security deposits are refundable less any damage or long
distance calls charged to the property phone line during
your dates of stay and can take up to 90 days after

Tips are typically placed in envelopes for each staff
In Acapulco there are many large grocery stores including
Wal-Mart, Comercial Mexicana, Sam's Club and Costco.
You’ll find mini-marts everywhere in the main
tourist zone. All homes offer the service of pre-stocking
are 2 options to purchase groceries. One option is to
let the house staff purchase all the food on your behalf
based on a menu that you prepare. The staff will present
you with an estimate for the cost of food and transportation
and return any change along with the receipt. The daily
cost for food and beverages per adult per day runs about
$20-35 USD per person depending on whether you are a
light or heavy eater. The cost would be more if you
add in alcoholic beverages - especially imported wines
and champagnes. The second option is that you go to
the market and grocery store either with the houseman
or by yourself and purchase the food. We find that a
trip to the market with the houseman is quite interesting.
Making at least one trip to the market and grocery store
will also give you a perspective on the cost of food

vary depending on the home or its specialized agent.
