Capella hotel info needed

Loved the Cappella Pedregal in Cabo and considering trying the one in Ixtapa this time but have never been to Ixtapa and would like to know more about the area. Are there restaurants nearby? Anything within walking distance or a short taxi ride? What about shopping or other activities?

Any info you can share about the resort would be greatly appreciated!

There is a lot of info on this site and also here:


The Capella is a beautiful hotel...you can read the reviews on here and look at the traveler's photos.

The shopping is nothing like Cabo or Cancun or PV. This area is not as glitzy or as Americanized as those areas, and smaller.

This is a great destination for sun and sand and fishing....and there are lots of restaurants in Ixtapa plus many more in Zihuatanejo, a short cab ride away. The weather is the best in Mexico and the beaches are great with warm clear water. Mountains and sunsets.

Other nearby towns/resort areas to visit too....Barra de Potosi, Playa Larga/Playa Blanca, Troncones, Ixtapa Island, and of course Zihua. There are loads of condo rentals and boutique hotels in Zihua, as well. We have been here five times, the first two times we stayed in Ixtapa and the last tree in Zihuatanejo.

All taxi rides in the area are short!

It's is only a couple of miles from Caplla all the way over the hill to Zihuatanejo.

Google Maps works in the area as well as Street View

Hi, I live in Cabo San Lucas and have been to Capella Pedregal and Capella Ixtapa as well. It's very romantic and private, built on a cliff, with 2 big swimming pools at the resort, and each room with it's own pool. They only have 59 rooms at the hotel, so you can be sure you'll have lots of privacy and wonderful R&R time. They also have 3 great restaurants at the hotel. And everything else is within an easy access from the hotel. You can even bike to town and around the area (they have bikes at the hotel).

This is their website: http://www.capellaixtapa.com, or you can see their blog for more tips on what to do and information about the area: …capellahotels.com/category/capellaixtapa/.
