For an amiable half-hour slice of dramedy, it's certainly serviceable entertainment, just calibrate your expectations accordingly before checking in.

The good-natured show's protagonist portrayed by Enrique Arrizon exudes innocence and optimism. It's a great companion to Ted Lasso. The 80s music is played to hilarious comedic effect. And finally a show that represents Mexicans properly.

The character-driven story will lure you in, especially because the characters are so well-written and acted.

Acapulco is, at its core, wholesome and genuinely feelgood television. And that makes me feel, oh, I don't know, sort of anxious.

Through it all, though, "Acapulco" is a skillful comedy, too. There's a strain of tenderhearted goofiness to go along with some very funny setups.

Acapulco allows these tensions to rise naturally-never forcing a happy resolution, but also not belaboring the friction. It's a well-balanced show with an endearing lead performance and a whole roster of equally charming supporting players.

Drama aside, the overall effect is gentle, sunny and laidback, and the show wears its easy charm well. Acapulco doesn't reinvent the wheel, but Las Colinas is a most pleasant place to spend some time.

The amiable cast carries the narrative through its lack of real urgency, with Arrizon and Perez delivering pleasant chemistry, Collins, Overstreet and Carsa providing humor and Alcázar and Bauche contributing some emotional grounding.

A surprisingly charming trip back in time to the Mexican resort town in the 1980s.

The first episode of Acapulco shows a funny series with some charisma but nothing extraordinary. [Full review in Spanish]

Acapulco has a ton of heart, plenty of humour and looks stunning. Told in Spanish and English, this coming-of-age story doesn't set out to break barriers or be scintillating. It anchors itself in seductive cuteness and succeeds.

On the whole, Acapulco feels like a satisfying enough scripted destination, albeit the kind its biggest name had to wait for American television to be ready to make.

On paper, this might not sound like a whole lot of fun. But Acapulco boasts enough sharp characterizations to make its gentle screwball comedy ping pong around the hotel with effervescent ease.
