Tucked into a secluded hillside along the Pacific that resembles the “classic hill towns of the Italian Riviera” (Gayot), the Capella Ixtapa Resort & Spa -- named one of the U.S News Best Hotels in Mexico for 2015 -- is known for high quality service and honeymoon-worthy comforts.
The setting at this AAA 4-Diamond hotel is intimate and romantic -- every suite comes with a private balcony with an infinity plunge pool that overlooks the sea. Personal assistants are available 24 hours a day to prepare private candle-lit dinners, reserve spa appointments and arrange sunset cruises or snorkeling trips. Other treats include guacamole, chips and cold beers delivered to your doorstep every evening.
Choose between three on-site restaurants featuring traditional and modern Mexican cuisine. The fire-grilled catch of the day is the speciality at the casual Las Rocas Seafood Market, and the formal four-course dinner at A Mares is excellent according to Travel + Leisure. The Terrace Bar serves tapas and small plates, and guests can sip on a selection of 65 fine tequilas or learn to make the perfect margarita.
A maze of stone pathways and staircases winds down the steep hillside to the rocky beach below, so head to one of the hotel's two freshwater pools instead. For a sandy beach stroll, guests can borrow complimentary bikes to explore nearby Playa Linda, which is about a mile and a half away.
