    Property is beautiful, and there is enough room that it never feels crowded. As every room has a private plunge pool, it also means that the two communal pools are never that busy.

    Probably the most peaceful time we have spent away anywhere. Very private suites with lovely plunge pools overlooking the ocean and rocks. Completely cut off in your own castle. The beds are large for kingsize. Lovely pillow top mattress, soft but firm. Firm I like. Air-conditioning excellent. Can make it crispy cold if you want. Which I do. Sleep under a duvet in summer. You can watch the ocean from your bed. See birds flying overhead. Fish eagles, pelicans, seagulls etc And you hear the waves crashing all night. Lovely heavy wood shuttered doors and windows. Lovely tropical plants. Spacious resort for such a small resort, makes for lovely walks. Two lovely spacious pools. Water in pools pristine clean and warm. The private plunge pool in your suite is also kept perfectly clean and is warm. Downside is gym is poorly equipped, did not seem air conditioned. No beach of its own, only a rocky ledge. You need to take a cab to the nearest beach. The beaches in this area can not compare to those of Yucatan. They are all public. Not white sand. The area has its own natural beauty. And Ixtapa is a small quiet town that is clean, beautiful and easy to navigate by foot. Large stunning palm avenues, white buildings. Bigger plus people are among the very friendliest and most welcoming anywhere. Taxis are cheap and so is everything else. Breakfast made to order. To our room if we wished. Sat on patio looking at the ocean and watching the birds fly overhead.

    Our first stay here, was really happy with the service staff. The VIP status was very nice. Food was excellent and due to timing... the hotel was really slow and we had great service and quiet.... most of the time. ONLY issue... Babies crying???? Why oh why do ppl do this? No one gets a holiday and being a couples resort really.... WHY are they allowed? Babies less than 3 should not be allowed in a resort. We are thinking of returning... we enjoyed the Whale's in the bay... got good video! Thank you all.

    New year in a paradise setting!

    Cal de Mar is like paradise, the place and surroundings are amazing. Staff is very courteous and attentive to detail. Unfortunately the service in restaurants is very slow, and there are a few details related to housekeeping and general maintenance that need looking into. Additionally, the prices of wines is ridiculously high. I understand mark-ups, but in this case it was too much.
