Resort Details

Cala de Mar Resort is a master-planned, oceanfront paradise, designed to protect the natural beauty of the environment while exposing guests to its splendor. Close to this resort 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. Cala de Mar Resort 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.

All of the 54 suites at Cala de Mar Resort face the Pacific, giving every guest at this luxury Mexico resort a spectacular view of the Pacific. From fine linen on your bed to the sun and the stars overhead, nothing has been overlooked when you stay at Cala de Mar Resort. 

Accommodation Details

The accommodations at this luxury resort in Mexico open guests up to a world of refinement. Each suite features 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 internet access. 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.

Restaurants, Lounges & Bars

Cala de Mar Resort features casual and fine dining options with three on-site restaurants. Dine at the carefree poolside restaurant, or experience a modern interpretation of Mexican cuisine or simply relax and have your meals delivered to your private terrace. A Mares, located in the heart of the resort, will feature the best of modern Mexican cuisine from a variety of regions in Mexico. The al-fresco Las Rocas restaurant will serve a bounty from the surrounding waters cooked on the spot with local fisherman`s catch of the day. While the Terrace bar is tiered in 3 levels and located on the 3rd floor of the resort. The first level of the bar is climate controlled; both lower tiers are open air with the most stunning views. Accompanied by daily live music, the guests enjoy a variety of traditional drinks, including their first ``Basil Margarita`` a very refreshing new type of Margarita.

Relaxing getaway. The resort had great service. We received a warm welcome from the staff. We had the penthouse, best view and balcony. Negatives business center, lack of beach & food selection minimal.

We loved everything about this property. The views are truly breathtaking. Each room has a private terrace and plunge pool with a gorgeous view of the ocean. Extremely relaxing and romantic. The property is elegant and the service is outstanding. Each person is genuinely happy to get you whatever you ask for. I loved all the little details like candles lit on your terrace each night, fresh flowers in the room, the bucket of beers and chips with salsa and guacamole brought each day at 5 pm to yo...

Antidote for a cold & nasty NW winter = Capella Ixtapa! We wanted to go back to Cancun where we visiting for a wedding in September when the rates were lower but OMG - try double $ in Jan...forget that! We have been to Ixtapa many times but decided we were sick of the large hotel scene with the techmex music at the pool, kids running around and the general "feedlot" feeling of the all-inclusive resorts. So we booked our winter getaway at Capella and were not disappointed! Starting with the perso... Read more

My husband and I spent four nights at Capella Ixtapa and were in awe of the location and the total experience at the resort. From our check-in, when the General Manager greeted us and made us feel welcome, to our our departure when he was available to send us on our way. Our room, complete with a plunge pool and cabana, was a great way to sit back and relax in the warm Mexico sun. The Spa was excellent, and the food experience was outstanding. We especially loved the Seafood Market and the a... Read more

Beautiful venue but not worth the price. Service was excellent but surprised by water at $4 par bottle . All prices were listed in US dollars but when the check came it was in pesos at 90% of the current exchange rate! Food presentation and selection was very good!

Capella is a gorgeous property about 3.5 miles north of Ixtapa and 1.5 miles south of Playa Linda. The hotel is built into the cliff face overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Great view and nice sunsets facing west. The rooms are good sized and comfortable with a private plunge pool with the room. Totally private. The restaurant selection was weak with 2 areas, one rotating between al carte when the second restaurant was closed and other days small plates and tapas. The other a primarily seaf... Read more

Just returned from a week of paradise! This was my fourth stay at the Capella ixtapa. The property is nothing less than perfect. The staff is attentive to every detail to make ones stay memorable. Each room offering a plunge pool, fine linens on a mattress fit for royalty. They offer an awesome spa that plays second to none. The food is of the best quality and fresh product. The only negative was having to leave and return to reality in the USA

This place is beyond words! The penthouse where we stayed was like a dream house. We stayed up late and watched TV outside then turned out lights and watched the stars...magnificent is not a good enough description. The bed and linens were ultra luxury and pools are amazing...the seafood restaurant is pricey but so worth it! Fresh juices every am and great sandwiches for lunch! The spa is world class and all the staff at Capella excel in customer relations!

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.
