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 façade and thatched roofs are complemented by marble floors and hardwood furnishings. The hotel's marriage of conventional and contemporary continues in the guest rooms, which feature authentic Mexican patterns and colors coupled with state-of-the-art conveniences, like LCD TVs and free Internet access. For some previous guests, the best part of Capella's accommodations was the sense of privacy afforded by the rooms' private plunge pools and spacious terraces. (For others, it was the complimentary chips and guacamole delivered by room service every afternoon.) However, no one wants to spend an entire vacation in isolation. To avoid loneliness, spend some time people-watching by one of two freshwater pools or playing a round of chess in the library. Or to treat your senses, reserve an afternoon for indulging at the spa and an evening for a meal at one of three on-site restaurants. Still have some needs to be met? Just let your personal assistant take care of it for you.
