My wife and I are planning our first trip to Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo and immediately fell in love with images of the Capella Ixtapa resort. With flights from Chicago to ZIH being fairly pricey (not to mention to hotel isn't exactly cheap...), the vacation itself is quite a splurge. With this being the case, I set my sights on the "base" room type at the Capella (Ocean Front Junior Suite). Despite this, I don't want to pour a lot of money/effort into the Capella, only to be disappointed by their least expensive room type.
Unfortunately, Capella Ixtapa's website doesn't offer many pictures of the different room types, nor does it offer a very helpful comparison of their rooms. All the rooms seem to have plunge pools and ocean front views. Naturally, the more expensive rooms are larger, but that's about all I can tell. Also confusingly, the Deluxe Ocean Front Junior Suite is the same price as the Capella Ocean Front Junior Suite (the website gives the impression that the "Capella"-branded rooms are nicer).
Can anyone with experience at this resort definitively tell me the differences between the rooms and offer a strong recommendation for or against a certain room type? I'm willing to splurge on a beautiful room, but don't want to overspend in the case that all the rooms are very similar. I guess I'm looking for the room type that offers the best "bang for the buck."
Any other advice on this resort in particular would be greatly appreciated. I know it is an expensive resort, and don't want to give off the impression that I'm expecting it to be cheap. That being said, we're not exactly millionaires and want to make sure we get the most for our money.
Thanks in advance!
