U.S. News Review

At this exclusive resort — located about 4 miles northwest of Ixtapa along Mexico's Pacific coast — traditional meets modern. Capella's adobe-style clay exterior and thatched roofs are complemented by marble floors and hardwood furnishings. The hotel's mix of conventional and contemporary extends to its 59 accommodations, which feature authentic Mexican patterns coupled with state-of-the-art conveniences, like satellite TVs, complimentary wireless Internet access and private plunge pools. For some visitors, the best part of Capella's suites was the sense of privacy afforded by the rooms' spacious thatched terraces. Still, with the property's ample on-site amenities and gorgeous surroundings, you'll want to carve out some time to explore the rest of the property grounds. Start by soaking up the rays along one of two freshwater pools or playing a round of chess in the library. Or to treat your senses, spend an afternoon at the spa getting pampered with Xochitl-flower inflused treatment or lemongrass body wrap. And when hunger sets in, take your pick between three restaurants, dishing up everything from sushi and tapas to traditional enchiladas and ceviche. According to past guests, the food at all three dining spots is top-notch and reasonably priced.
