2nd visit

My wife and I visited Cala de Mar ( formerly Capella Ixtapa) for 8 days. It was a 2nd visit. I want to give it 5 stars but the one area that I cannot is around food. First the awesome parts. The staff is phenomenal! Super friendly, helpful and everyone there is great! The resort is the best I've ever been to. We were there in 2010 and when I asked my wife where she wanted to go for our anniversary, there was no question. Back to this resort. My only comment is around the food. First of all, the prices in the resort for food and drink are almost NY prices. They charge in dollars and dinner and drinks for 2 are very high considering that it's Mexico. For a $7.00 ten minute cab ride into Ixtapa, you can eat and drink for 1/2 price or less. The other part of that is sometimes, you don't know the price until the bill comes. Few written menus with exact prices. That being said, the food and drink is very good and we weren't scrimping but we had 1/2 our dinners in the resort and half in town. Room service was great. The quality of food was still very good. Just be aware of the cost. We would still go back for a third visit without question. The rooms, plunge pools, overall resort is still top shelf! We really enjoyed and did not see any difference at all as a result of the name change. We loved it and plan on returning whenever we can!

The resort is beautiful, peaceful and allows you to completely relax. Yes, it's hot (82-87 degrees year-round) but pools are everywhere, including your own private one. The resort is incredibly well designed architecturally with the terrain and views at center stage. The service was Ritz-Carlton level, every staff member was happy to help - special recognition to Karla (host), Miguel (bartender), Felix (breakfast server), Francisco (pool master), George (CS manager) and others that were great but I accidentally forgot the names! The food was wonderful, especially breakfast and the Seafood Market restaurant. We only left the resort to shop in Ixtapa a couple of days, but there are great bike trails from the resort to town and the beach (the resort has bikes for your use). The only service that was not up to par with the others is the spa, they were nice but not great with our facials or massages. If you're not from the region I recommend getting pesos before leaving your place of origin, most shops and restaurants accept US dollars but you can't really negotiate and you pay more by using the dollar. We hope to go back to the resort someday soon!

Hidden Treasure

We had an exceptional stay at Cala de Mar Resort and Spa at Ixtapa. The ocean view from the hotel is breathtaking. Looks like the trip to wonderland. The staff is exceptionally friendly and profesional. You feel like at home, total privacy with great attention from all the staff. The hotel is located on an ocean facing rock oriented directly south, with sun all day long. Somehow you never get tired of sun, you find shade everywhere and if do you feel hot you find the pool or well air conditioned spaces indoor. Food is exceptionally good, fresh catch from the pacific for dinner at the terrace was our favorite. It is the most luxurious and best managed place in the region by far. The area is a hidden treasure for affluent Mexican people, still not much discovered by foreign guests. An hour flight from Mexico City with many international connections to nearby Ixtapa Airport (ZIH). The place is perfectly safe, people in the area very friendly and welcoming.

We went there to celebrate our first aniversary. Everything was perfect, since the first email Karla, the concierge, sent me to ask if we were celebrating anything in particular...I told her it was our first aniversary. We had a wonderful surprise when we walked in to the room and everything was decorated wonderfully! Juan Carlos welcomed us as soon as we got out of the taxi and showed us every detail of the hotel. Karla helped me arranged a surprise for my husband: a romatic and private dinner in our room, it was magical! The staff at the restaurant even helped me entertained my Husband while Karla and her team were decorating everything in our room. I do not have enough words to thank all the team at Capella Ixtapa for these wonderful days. Totally recomend it. Food is great, service is out of this world, worth every peso I paid. DO VISIT CAPELLA IXTAPA!

Wonderful all around service and boutique hotel. I travel a lot around the world and this place hits all the boxes. Incredible location on side of a cliff. All rooms face the ocean. Every room has a personal pool and outstanding views. Service was a 10 top to bottom. Greeting from bell hop and front desk was A+, housekeeping was a 10 with them coming in 2 x day to tidy up. Restaurant service a 10. Room service fast and good. Bonus at 5pm if you are in your room after your 1st day of arrival, you get 2 small beers with guacamole and pico and chips, YUM. Just call the up every morning to heat your pool if you want it warmed. Wi-Fi was great in my room. Everything was a 10 here. Come her to fall in love with Ixtapa.
