Unforgettable Boutique Hotel

Went with my girlfriend in the last week of December 2012. Stayed in a deluxe room with an uncovered plunge pool. We are really into good food and awesome non-generic places and this met the criteria. View from the hotel is breathtaking. Staff is super-helpful. We wanted to experience the local food and they took us to local restaurants, market, arranged for a cooking class. Food is consistently very high quality. Cooked with fresh local ingredients. Makes you wanna try everything. This is an awesome and relaxing place and the staff puts a lot of effort to keep it that way. Please keep in mind that this is a pricey place, not just the rooms but food and wines is definitely European prices. But it's worth it and justified (I dont think you can run a high end boutique hotel/resort without high prices).

Skip the tour to the Ixtapa island - it's a bit of a tourist trap and certainly not as nice as the hotel. Make sure to go to the local market and try local delicacies and foods (we had goat tacos!) which were spectacular.

Fantastic Experience...

Wonderful Hotel and Staff. More staff than guests to take care of you. Great easy get away for a do nothing vacation that was in order. No need to have a car or leave the property. They are always asking if there is anything you need. Food is all made from scratch by Alex and his staff, it's all fantastic and they will make whatever you want if it isn't on the menu. Four restaurants to choose from plus room service is that's your thing. Outstanding views from every room, delightful pool(s), just no beach.

Magic Place!

Second time at Capela and even better than the first time. The view and location are fantastic. The only shortcomings are lack of a private beach and distance from Zihuatanejo attractions.

Capella Ixtapa Resort

This was our second visit to the hotel. We were there in November with 2 other couples. The food is excellent at the resort and the rooms are amazing. The hotel is posted on the site as adults-only, but there were families with children at the hotel for this visit. We thought we were paying for adults-only and were disappointed. Prices in Mexico are at an all time high. Over $150 for two to dine.

The only place to stay in Ixtapa

We had a great time. If you can swing it, get the penthouse. Make sure you ask for Luz, she is excellent and can arrange for anything. Also, you have to go to Las Gatas beach and ask for Franco. He has the best food and service on the island.

Great Experience

Prices actually charged vs menu (in room service) were higher (on top of service charge, etc). They surprised me with the cost of transportation back to the airport and the intention to add a sevice charge of 10% to the room charge. Other than this very good overall experince.
