    Cala de Mar Resort & Spa Ixtapa
    Ixtapa
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 780 reviewsTripAdvisor (780)
    At this exclusive resort – located about 4 miles northwest of Ixtapa along Mexico's Pacific coast –traditional meets modern. Cala de Mar Resort & Spa Ixtapa'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 54 accommodations, which feature authentic Mexican patterns coupled with top-notch conveniences like satellite TVs, complimentary wireless internet access and private plunge pools. For some visitors, the best part of the 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 resort's grounds. Start by soaking up the rays along one of two freshwater pools or by playing a round of chess in the library. Or to treat your senses, spend an afternoon at the spa getting pampered with a Xochitl-flower inflused treatment or lemongrass body wrap. (Bonus: The resort's infinity pools are some of the world's most beautiful.) And when hunger sets in, take your pick between four 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 excellent and reasonably priced. Members of the I Prefer rewards program can enjoy special deals at this Preferred Hotels and Resorts location.

    Las Brisas Ixtapa
    Ixtapa
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 3235 reviewsTripAdvisor (3235)
    Free WiFi

    It's hard to miss Las Brisas Ixtapa: The resort's orange exterior proves a stark contrast to Ixtapa's verdant landscape. But the resort's industrial design works in its favor. For example, the slanted facade allows every room to boast its own balcony with unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean. And previous guests describe the rooms' contemporary furnishings and amenities (such as minibars and satellite TVs) to be well above par. If you're looking to splurge, some travelers recommend upgrading to a junior suite, which comes equipped with a private terrace outfitted with a hammock, chairs and a Jacuzzi. But don't plan on staying cooped up in your room; Las Brisas Ixtapa offers plenty of ways to get out and about. Golfers will appreciate the resort's southern Ixtapa location, which places putters within 3 miles of the Marina Ixtapa Golf Club and the Ixtapa Golf Course. On the property, you'll find four swimming pools and four tennis courts, and the adjacent beach provides a great setting for a day of lounging. Las Brisas Ixtapa also houses six restaurants, though former guests note that the food here leans toward the pricey side.
