I just returned from a mostly stellar stay at Capella Pedregal. Capella is a worthy rival to Palmilla, Esperanza and Las Ventanas. I haven't stayed at Palmilla but it compares favorably to the others. Capella's rooms are hard to beat: huge, comfortable and stylish. Service was unfailingly friendly and helpful, as it is at the other resorts. The beach is the most walkable of the three, and at least on my visit, was very breezy, which is an advantage in the summer. In winter the corridor might be more comfortable.
Capella's spot on the Pacific is lovely but doesn't come close to the natural beauty of Esperanza's more rugged setting. Even though Esperanza's beach is pebbly and small, it has tidepools that are fun to explore. Las Ventanas' beach is wide but unremarkable. Las Ventanas is the most architecturally beautiful of the three, and possibly the most relaxing, but it borders on being austere and museum-like. Capella is more convivial. The pool area is long and winds along the beach. I found the party crowd at one end to be a bit loud and fled to the mostly-deserted kids' pool.
I can't imagine having a bad experience at any of the three resorts but I would give Capella the edge in comfort, food, modern facilities and proximity to attractions. That said, the other two seem more authentically Mexican and have a bit more soul.
