Capella Ixtapa in Ixtapa, Mexico

Waves crash on giant boulders at the base of Capella Ixtapa, a secluded retreat nestled in acacia-filled cliffs about 20 minutes from Zihuatanejo. The open-air design of the villas and restaurants, where guests can dine on red-snapper ceviche with a panoramic view of the ocean it came from, integrates nature into all of its elements. Infinity pools take center stage here, as well as spa treatments in rustic surroundings.

Watch the daybreak sky turn pink over island blips on the Pacific. Get lost on forest paths before finding your way to a white daybed overlooking the shore below. Join a local guide on a tour of Petatlán, learning about Mexican traditions, tasting medicinal herbs, and swimming in a lush lagoon. Watch the sunset. The signature basil margaritas flow freely.

The Capella is a beautiful boutique hotel. My husband and I, thoroughly, enjoyed our week long stay, which included a gastronomy tour to the local food market and a Mexican culinary class with Capella's chef, Ita Abarca. She was a delight as was the rest of the staff who deserve mention..Connie (coordinated our arrival, dinners and our culinary class - always personable and professional going the extra mile for our special anniversary dinner at Kau Kan Campomar), Nadia, Francisco (who made sure we always had our towels laid out at the smaller pool, which we preferred), Claudia (who was observant of our stone game, took a picture of the stones, framed the photo in a beautiful folkloric frame as a gift), the team who left the 5:00 pm guacamole and beer snack every evening after a long day at the pool and as we enjoyed our own private as a whole headed by the GM, Philippe, was friendly, professional and always prepared to take care of every need. The hotel is perfect if you want a quiet retreat away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. The Mexican cuisine served at the hotel is excellent for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I can't say enough about this wonderful gem. My husband and I plan to return very, very soon.

The Capella Ixtapa is a gorgeous, luxurious property with great little details that make a difference. Rooms are large and comfortable, with fantastic views and in-room little pools. There are three restaurants within the hotel. Sadly, the fish one (right above the beach) is closed in Summer, so that limits a bit the options. However, both the breakfast restaurant, by one of the pools; and the evening restaurant / terrace, offer very good, carefully presented food and fantastic drinks. Prices are not cheap, but the quality is very good. Annoyingly, though, all the prices are in US dollars, and (even more annoyingly) they charge a non-voluntary tip for anything consumed within the restaurants. I am not even sure either of these things are legal in Mexico. This was by far the most irritating thing in the trip. Other than that, the rooms are very well equipped (kettle, coffee maker, complimentary soft drinks), a good selection of TV channels in the (nicely stowable) flatscreen, correct toiletries (no hair conditioner, though, and no body lotion), bathrobes (but, surprisingly, no slippers), iron, safe, etc. Internet is ubiquitous throughout the property and very fast. Armchair are comfortable, both within the room and outside in the terrace. The bed is very comfortable; the pillows are feather-stuffed, which was not ideal; but in honesty, we didn't ask to see if they could change them. The bathroom is large and very well lit, the wardrobe has more than enough space and everything is very well designed with convenience in mind. They have nice little details, like a delicious bowl of guacamole and totopos (corn chips), with cold beers, that seem to appear magically in the terrace in the late afternoon; or a good supply of ice water by the pool, along with tasty amenities like ice cream. Francisco, by the way, made our (long, lazy) stays by the pool area a true delight with attentive but discreet and timely service. The hotel has a tiny beach; but guests are discouraged to get in the sea there, as it is very rocky and dangerous. There are two infinity pools with breathtaking views, besides those in the rooms. Other than poolside beds, there are more private nooks slightly higher up that are very comfortable. The hotel offers bikes to go around - there is a wonderful bike track just outside that passes through a nature reserve. There is also a "library" with complimentary coffee and cookies in the morning, fruit drinks later in the day, that is a welcome refuge when it rains hard. In general, all personnel are attentive and very helpful.

High luxury as close as you can get to Mexico's Pacific coastline, this stunning resort and spa wowed even the toughest of critics (myself!). Located in Zihuatanejo, the hotel was created around the rocky cliffside, giving you front row ocean views from every part of it. They had me at my room: the simple, chic room that opened up to my private outdoor deck, infinity pool, lounge area and of course, my own slice of that breathtaking ocean view. But they won me over again and again, with perfection like their open air bar, which served up delightful cocktails with an obstructed view of the entire bay. Or their Las Rocas Restaurant, which served ceviche, margaritas, tacos and fresh caught fish on a bougainvillea lined terrace. The main pool is the focal point of the resort with it's optical illusion edge that makes it seem to go right into the sea. Soaking in these waters, while gazing at that view is just what we needed after active days in the hot Mexican sun. While we enjoyed almost all of the property immensely, we didn't get a chance to try the Seafood Market restaurant, located al fresco, and closer to the water, nor the spa. Guess this Hotel Snob, will have to return... :)

So we our wonderful hosts wanted share the best of Zihua and some of Iztapa. The Capella in June does not open their close to the sea restaurant, but even the higher offered beautiful vistas. The food was quite good though pricey for this area. The seafood wonderfully fresh and the waiters quite professional. Highly recommended

We stayed at Capella Ixtapa for our 7 day honeymoon, and it truly exceeded every expectation that we had. The room was magnificent-- perfect views, comfortable, nightly turn down service. The resort was small, quaint and well kept. The plunge pool in our room was perfect, and the main pool was rarely crowded. The food and drink options were great. And getting recommendations from Connie, our personal assistant for in town destinations were great! Our only complaint was that this is NOT a destination to take children, of any age. We were there around Easter, and there were several families. The pool is not made to be a splashing fun place. There are several other resorts nearby (including a Club Med that caters to families). Outside of that-- it was beyond our imaginations,and we can't wait to head back!
