Impeccable First Class Resort with Views and Staff to match! My wife and I could not of chosen a better place to celebrate our 25th Anniversary! From our personal assistant helping us prior to the trip, to the moment we arrived, all the way to the moment we had to check out...It was a vacation of dreams! Impeccable service with amazing accommodations and breath-taking views! The best food I have ever eaten night after night! Little personal touches of service each night. Candles lit each night with fresh chips and guacamole each night. Fresh flower petals on the bed welcoming us and again later in our visit..the fresh scent that is only Cala de Mar (we had to purchase several bottles to bring back). The sound of the waves crashing, the privacy of our balcony and plunge pool right outside of our bedroom...the VIEWS!!! The architecture...the solitude...the beauty...is unmatched! Truly relaxing and romantic! We will be back!

I cannot rave enough about this property, the service, and the overall experience. Cala De Mar is a Gem! The rooms are incredibly unique with stellar views of the pacific. The service is next to none with your personal concierge planning curated experiences for your stay. The private plunge pool, with dine in breakfast and lunch was the ultimate romantic getaway. Must visit.

I cannot rave enough about this property, the service, or the overall experience. Cala De Mar is a gem in Mexico! The rooms are incredibly unique, comforting, and relaxing. The service is beyond stellar, with curated experiences planned for your romantic vacation. Must Try Margarita Class and breakfast/lunch in your room with your private plunge pool

This is a small boutique hotel with great views over the ocean. Not for young children or handicap with all the stairs, levels, and lack of railings, etc. Food is excellent with the fresh fish the main star. Servers are very friendly and attentive. Cleanest hotel room I have ever stayed in. We are going back for sure. Sitting in your own infinite pool on the balcony with daily happy hour is heaven.

The hotel is really nice. The rooms are very nice and confortable.The service is very good. The food is no good and no too much variety. The premises do not have a beach, although there are two swiming pools.

this resort is the best one in Ixtapa. The only draw back is there is no swimmable beach but if service, views and comfort are your choice. This is the place to be. the individual plunge pool with a deck and lounge area outside of every room is a great amenity. Afternoon Guacamole and chips with a complimentary beer give you the ability to enjoy privacy in your own room. Definitely a resort for the happiness and romance in a relationship.

One of the best hotels I have ever been!! We spent 3 days of our honey moon there and we really loved it, the views are just amazing, day and night there were astonishing, the room is so cozy, elegant, and nice, that we really struggled to get out. And the hotel staff were so friendly and helpful, that we really felt were at home.
