The project consists of two volumes closed towards the back with completely open façades that house 44 rooms in total, 20 of them with their own pool and 24 with terraces. The program of the hotel concentrates all the services of the hotel, library, cinema, restaurant, bar, gym and spa.

From the begining, one of the requirements of the land owners was to raise the hotel to take advantage of the views achieved in the upper parts of the premises, which tell a story of Acapulco about “pie de la cuesta”, the Bay, “Punta diamante” and the new Acapulco.
