Resort Details

The Capella Ixtapa Zihuatanejo hotel is a master-planned, oceanfront paradise, designed to protect the natural beauty of the environment while exposing guests to its splendor. Close to Capella Ixtapa is the Mexican town of Zihuatanejo. Unlike so much of Latin America, Zihuatanejo retains much of the culture of Mexico, as well as the practices and traditions dating back to the Aztec age.

Capella Ixtapa is easily reached via international airport travel (ZIH), and features high-speed, state-of-the-art telephone and internet connections; when guests come here, we encourage them to leave it all behind and soak in the wonders of the resort.

The accommodations at this luxury resort in Mexico open  guests up to a world of refinement. Each of the hotel suites feature a master bedroom, living area and a private terrace with plenty of space to take in the sights of coastal living. Some suites have secluded in a corner of the terrace an infinity edge plunge pool, ideal for romance or refreshment.

Inside your Ixtapa suite, relaxation is made easy, with a LCD television, and wireless LAN. The world outside can be easily accessed from your bedside touch panel control for lighting. Plus, guests have their own refreshment center: complimentary mineral waters and soft drinks allowing you to re-hydrate and renew.

I cannot say enough good things about Capella Ixtapa. From the staff (amazing) to the rooms (clean, luxurious, modern) to the grounds (beautiful) to the food (delicious) our entire experience was 5-star all the way. We stayed for 5 wonderful nights and we barely left the property, you don't need to! I've been back now for a week and still can't stop thinking about Capella and what an amazing getaway this was. GO GO GO! You won't regret it.

My girlfriend and I recently stayed here after going to a former Capella, but now it's own thing, The Resort At Pedregal in Cabo, MX. After Cabo, my girlfriend became interested in Capella and I was intent on just going back to Pedregal on our next trip. I am glad we didn't (even though I would definitely still go back to Pedregal too), but we had an amazing experience at Capella. The service and people were great. The food was amazing. The scenes, amenities, spa, ease of everything, and total... Read more

We don't usually take relaxing vacations but Capella Ixtapa has changed our mind, hopefully we will be able to come back here every year. The room is amazing, we are in one of the penthouse suites, the views are fabulous - I want to buy a condo on the bay that i can see from my room but then I would probably be envious of the people at Capella Ixtapa! the people who work here are great, the waiters don't wear name tags so I can't mention them individually which is fine because from my experienc...

The staff at Capella make this Resort and Spa top notch! From my arrival greeting from Phil and Connie to the gentleman that showed me around and to our room.

The bedroom is large and beautiful and super A/C in there and the bathroom is large with double sinks... huge shower.. private water room, and a lot of hanging and shelving... Read more

I attended the Capella Spa for a 80 min massage. It was absolutely extraordinary. The Spa was beautiful. The staff (Adrian) was superb!! I will love to return. The only thing was the price. It was very expensive even for USA.

Having worked in the travel industry for 35+ years and explored 5 continents I am not easy to impress BUT our stay at Capella Ixtapa was unparalleled. 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 of our expectations. If you want to experience Paradise this is the place to go! Thank you for the trip of a a lifetime... We plan on going b...

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 the ocean, and the bay it sits within, getting sun pretty much all day (SW facing). Only 25 minutes from the airport by limo, we chose their penthouse room (o... Read 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.
