I looked at hundreds of great places for our honeymoon, and chose Capella Ixtapa because of its balance of beauty, luxury, privacy, proximity, and price. It was, without any doubt, the right choice. Staying at Capella Ixtapa feels different than anywhere else I've ever been, including luxury hotels and exotic places around the world. The entire place has an atmosphere... More

This hotel would be perfect if it was an "Adults Only" hotel. The few children there are unexpected, but the luxury of the hotel is super. Private pools and quiet atmosphere with views that go on forever. No beach to enjoy.

We recently visited with Capella, this was our 4th time visiting. If you are planning a visit to Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa area, you need not to look further! Truly a beautiful discovery, both the area and Capella. It surpasses our expectations year after year and while words cannot do it justice, I will try once again to share. Capella is a beautiful...

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.
