In case you need another reason not to trust Wikipedia:

Thanks! They talk about this club Palladium. It's really a dream. It's just incredible, the view is breathtaking. So elegant, so nice, and yet all normal people can have access, as long as they dress nicely. I remember is on a cliff and you can see the whole Acapulco bay at night through those huge windows...and at Mexico prices

That's a blatant violation of wikistandards.

"Anyone can create a website or pay to have a book published, then claim to be an expert in a certain field. For that reason self-published media, whether books, newsletters, personal websites, open wikis, blogs, Internet forum postings, tweets etc., are largely not acceptable.[nb 4]
Self-published material may, in some circumstances, be acceptable when produced by an established expert on the topic of the article whose work in the relevant field has previously been published by reliable third-party publications. However, caution should be exercised when using such sources: if the information in question is really worth reporting, someone else is likely to have done so."
