The setting is magnificent & the service phenomenal. The property manager, Phillip Real and his staff - Juan Pablo Arciniega & Connie Ochoa were outstanding. They anticipated our every need and surpassed all... More

Having been to Cabo and Cancun several times (and tried many of those locations best hotels, and frankly got tired of paying the cartel room rates there) we decided to try Ixtapa, and the Capella there... This hotel is easily a match for those in other (more expensive) locations. Perched on a hillside, the hotel has a beautiful view of... More

We were sent to this hotel in Ixtapa by our regular hotel that we stay at in Zihuatanejo, due to an overbooking. It was a pleasant surprise!!! Equally as nice as our hotel but no beach front : ( The staff was amazing - everyone of them!!! And everything was beautiful here!!! Special thanks to Connie, Phillipe and Galvino!

This place is first class all the way. We were escorted into our room and the wifi was free, the snacks and waters were also included. The room was amazing with a private pool with a view of he ocean. It was so relaxing and private. About a 5 minute taxi ride to town.

We visited this hotel on a lark in January of 2014. It was absolutely the best vacation we have ever had! From the check in process, to the hotel staff, right down to the maintenance crews were so happy and helpful. The rooms are unbelievable, with ocean views that take your breath away. The plunge pool is a great addition... More

My husband and I actually got married at Capella Ixtapa three years ago. Since neither one of our families were there for the wedding, we decided to take both sets of our parents there for dinner one night, while we were staying in Zihuatanejo. The resort itself is absolutely amazing, with spectacular views of the ocean and beautiful hotel grounds.... More
