It List: 45 Best New Hotels of 2010
Courtesy of Hotel Boca Chica/Design Hotels
Great Value Hotel Boca Chica, the latest from Grupo Habita, captures that cool 1950’s vibe (the original property was featured in Elvis’s Fun in Acapulco) and makes it stylish and new. There are 36 rooms, most with bay or ocean views, all with white, beachy décor: jalousie doors, ceiling fans, and a bed you hate to leave. Start your day with chilaquiles under the restaurant’s large-scale open-air palapa, then take the hotel’s boat to nearby La Roqueta island, an ecological reserve perfect for snorkeling, or stay poolside with an Acabrown, the hotel’s addictive tamarind- and-mescal cocktail. Doubles from $95.
