Mr. Gonzalez, our wedding coordinator, helped with all the paperwork and was able to help us find an officiant that met our needs. Two hours before the... More

We have traveled to many luxury resorts, but Capella tops them ALL! The incredible cliffside location and spectacular views are exceeded only by the 5 star service and amenities. We traveled during the low, low season and felt that we had the resort all to ourselves. The peace and tranquil quiet was exactly what we desired. If you want 'party... More

Beautiful hotel, cliff located, no beach, all ocean views, very private, great sunny weather year round, and great food at prices not too high as usual for this hotel class. Not recommended for kids, more of a honeymoon type of hotel.

We just returned from a week at Capella Ixtapa. It was truly a delight. The staff is so accomodating and helpful. I rarely take the time to leave reviews but I thought this resort deserved the accolades. The spa was amazing and the massage therapist were excellent and could perform a true deep tissue massage. We basically wanted a lot... More

The Capella in Ixtapa is possibly the most accommodating place we have ever been. Great staff, food and view. We only left the campus once. Any food or drink we asked for was made for us. Everyday there were chips, homemade guacamole and Coronita's sent to our room at 3:30. There are many activities outside the compound (golf, tennis, fishing)... More

The property is amazing. Nested in the reef overlooking the ocean. The rooms are perfect. The infinity pools are awesome. Even the food in the restaurant is top notch. The spa us not to be missed. What else is there to say?

Stayed for our honeymood. We wanted something a little outside the city of Ixtapa, something quiet and peacful. We couldn't have picked a better spot. Not only are the rooms beautiful but the service is unmatched. My wife has some dietary issues with gluten and dairy, once we notified them the first time, we didn't have to tell them again....

This short trip was amazing, I decided to do it as a side trip, maybe next time this will be my main destination. I was already in Mexico City, so getting a roundtrip ticket from Mexico to Zihuatanejo was very inexpensive. Everybody at the hotel was so nice and attentive, perfect service is really a big deal for all of... More

Capella Ixtapa is an absolutely stunningly gorgeous property. The hotel is built into a cliff facing the ocean and the design is such that anywhere you go within the hotel you will be treated to an absolutely stunning view. Anywhere I went in the hotel I found myself pausing to take in the amazing scenery. This includes the gym, library,... More
