A spacious room with a furnished balcony, a stunning panoramic ocean view, and your own private plunge pool: nice upgrade, eh? Usually yes, but at Capella Ixtapa in Mexico, everyone gets this VIP treatment and every room has a killer view.
As hotels keep trying to outdo each other, we’ve seen a few in recent years where each room has its own plunge pool, as is the case with this one. But it’s hard to find one where every room has such an amazing view: blue water, little islets circled by sea birds, and waves crashing against the shore. Capella Ixtapa was built into a cliff, so it looks like it’s clinging to the side of a mountain. It spills down it so steeply that you ride a little funicular railway to your room.
All nice indeed, but fortunately the service is there to back all this up—you’ve got an assistant on call who is ready to make sure you’re happy. The restaurants get high marks from guests. And of course your margarita or fresh fish filet comes with a view.
There’s a lot more to talk about with this hotel, so see our full review of Capella Ixtapa, on the Pacific Coast of Mexico.
