Very quaint feelling and unique design. Love the oceans view.

Loved the property it was breathtaking. Walking up to an ocean view was amazing and very relaxing

A beautiful setting, with great staff. You felt like you were at your own private villa. Would definitely recommend.

Everything was great. Our personal assistant was always ready to take care of anything we needed. The food was delicious. Room and facilities were always clean and fully stocked. Every employee we interacted with was polite and attentive, including taxi drivers. They also prepared bikes for a morning trip. We have a great time and the views are amazing!

Everything is absolutely great! Hotel, staff and views!

Trip to Ixtapa was last minute package was super well priced! Every room st Capella has a swimming pool (mini-sized) but sooo great! You don't have to leave the room if you don't want to. Coffee and fresh bread( free) every morning. 5pm daily beer and guacamole delivered to your room free! the food was amazing and was able to meet the chef several times to talk about his food. Have several food allergies and Capella was able to meet my demands!! Waiters Concierge services and porters wee all very kind and helpful for every request. I and my husband love it. Capella also has free bikes for you to borrow to go to a nearby nature reserve and nearby beach. At his hotel has no beach do if you want to go, a taxi can be ordered for you. I loved it!!!!! Would go back in an instant. PS Free wifi in room!

We stayed in the penthouse suite and had the best room of any hotel/resort we have ever visited. The plunge pool and outdoor living area make it unnecessary to ever leave your suite.

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights and it was absolutely heaven! From the moment you arrive, you are treated like a star. The welcome drink at the front desk was refreshing after a full day of travel and when we checked into our room we knew we had picked the perfect hotel. We booked a room with a plunge pool and now I never want a hotel without one! It was so great to be able to unwind in your own private pool. The afternoon snack was the cherry on top! How can you go wrong with beer, guacamole and chips and a private pool! All the rooms on the property face the ocean. Our room also had sliding doors that opened up all the way onto the patio - we slept with the doors open so that we could hear the ocean falling asleep and first thing when we woke up. It was perfect. The property itself is in pristine condition and the entire staff makes it a point to learn your name as soon as you arrive. The food while a bit expensive was delicious and the chef even made us his mom's mole chicken!! My husband and I still talk about this vacation and would definitely go back.

awesome stay!! felt like we were the only ones at the hotel.

everything about the hotel is fantastic. If you need a beach, it doesn't have one though.

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.

Wow, Wow, Wow. Every little detail was catered to. The food was excellent and the service beyond approach. Will go back again in the future.

One of the best resorts! Exceptional service, beautiful location. Cooking class and spa were the highlights of our our tour. Highly reccomended

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.

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.

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).

Awesome hotel and great location. The staff cannot be friendlier and more helpful. Incredible views everywhere.

all in all nice place if you can afford to pay for EVERYTHING.....unaffordable to budgeted class people when resort was on website stating it was all inclusive.
