Hotel's Favorite
I could easily spend days at Cala de Mar without leaving the room, except maybe to go to dinner or get a massage. That said, the room service was wonderful, the room itself exquisite and the view absolutely breathtaking. I loved listening to the sounds of the ocean at night and working a bit on my computer on the terrace during the day (good internet) and would return in a heartbeat. Thank you very much to Brenda for the excellent massage treatments and to Alejandro who greeted me each time I came and went from the resort. Overall very professional service and also great food. This is a wonderful location to relax! Also the ocean breeze helped it from feeling too hot. I only needed AC at night. Thank you for the great experience!

We spent 4 days in paradise. Every room has a private infinity pool overlooking the Pacific ocean, and a nice terrace. High quality comfortable accommodations. The hotel has a Spa, a large infinity pool and three restaurants, all of them with great food and refined service. Ideal for couples who want to reconnect. Not really suitable for children, limited beach access (the hotel is in a cove -cala = cove) interesting elevator, professional team managing the hotel.

Secluded place with very nice ambiance and quality of service. There is no real beach access but the room pool gives gorgeous ocean views and a private place to relax. Restaurants are nice but wines are ridiculously expensive. If you’re looking for a nice place that is outside of the tourist area this is for you.

This has to be one of the most beautiful resorts I have ever been to. I’m not kidding…breathtaking. We got the romance package/suite on the 6th floor. The room actually looked better than it did on their website. The ONLY downside is the lack of a beach at the hotel to swim. If that is important to you than this may not be the place for you. We did try IXTAPA Island which was very close but, ummm not good. At least not what we had hoped. Back to this stunning property though…like other reviewers have stated, we stayed at the hotel and really loved the pool and staff. We stayed 4 nights and visited some off property restaurants which were all good. Major downside was the lack of air conditioning in any of the restaurants including the one at Cala de mar. Although all restaurants had bathrooms that were ice cold. Anyway, this resort is beautiful and very romantic. Definitely worth checking out!
