Spectacular Location, Great Staff, Yet many improvements desired

Without a doubt Capella Ixtapa is located on the hottest real estate in Ixtapa.

I managed to capture some videos of Capella Ixtapa and its surroundings:

I had an opportunity to bring a guest, who unlike me, travels most of the year, staying at 5 to 7 star hotels for both work and pleasure.

My review reflects these wide spectrum of experience.

Using Kiwi's rating, I would score 74:
Service: 8
Rooms: 8
Food & Beverage: 6
Attention to Detail: 4
Wow Factor: 9
Architecture & Design: 8
Location: 9

Service: Most of the staff were warm, kind, and willing to go extra mile to fulfill your needs and requirements.

Rooms: I was very disappointed to stay in the "worst spot" with the hotel not very full AND without any Kiwi VIP perks in sight.

It's true that every room has a great view. But one thing that can ruin it all is the proximity to restaurant and the pool.

Quiet star gazing was ruined by the blender from the kitchen and awkward staring from the main pool made things worse.

Food & Beverage: With the main chef, we were met with non-innovative food. Wine selection was average. Fruit selection was terrible. Food price was high and value was average. Though we recommend the Sea View Dining.

Attention to Detail: What makes a 5 star different is the attention to detail regardless which room you are in. Capella Ixtapa failed on this. Staff are not trained to this level yet.

By far, best location at an international level with a perfect harmony with nature and weather. Only thing missing is the private beach, but a quick bike/taxi can get you there.
