Capella Ixtapa exemplifies traditional Mexican architecture with it's adobe style clay exterior and thatched roofs. The resort is seamlessly built into the side of oceanfront cliffs granting every suite panoramic views of the Pacific. There are two freshwater, infinity edge pools located at the lower level of the resort. Be sure to order lunch from Las Rocas while at the pool and try out some of their ((amazing!!!)) ceviche … my picks are either the yellow tail tuna and pineapple ceviche or the Guatemalan ceviche!
Capella Ixtapa offers a truly unique and personal way to fully experience Mexican cuisine. Their professional chef will set up an experience just for you starting with a trip to the market in Ixtapa. You and the chef will pick out fresh, local ingredients to prepare your traditional Mexican dish. At the market, the chef will provide the history on the food and the background on where your ingredients originate. Once you return to the hotel, the chef beautifully arranges your newly purchased ingredients in the kitchen in order to provide the optimal environment for teaching you on how to prepare some of the tantalizing dishes and international cocktails served in our gourmet restaurants. This is truly a one-of-a-kind experience to delve into the history and traditions of Mexican cooking. Classes are limited to two people in order to provide the most hands-on and personal experience possible, so it is the perfect activity for couples!

Capella Ixtapa boasts a library stocked with works by renown authors and provides fresh coffee, tea, fruit and pastries in the morning as well as cookies in the evening. Breakfast at Las Rocas offers classics such as chilaquiles and aporreadillo plus amazing coffee ((sourced locally)).. And if you're feeling bad for indulging in too many margaritas, try their green juice. Made up of celery, cactus, pineapple and parsley, it's the perfect morning cleanse.
The gem of restaurants at Capella Ixtapa is their Seafood Market. It's only open select nights, so be sure to have your personal assistant make reservations for your stay. The greatest thing about the Seafood Market is that you pick your meal from the days catch and then it's grilled on the spot! They offer three different sauces that are all common in Guerrero, each one better than the last! On top of the amazing food, you can dine under the stars with the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks below you… it doesn't get more romantic than that!
