From a single king bed to a suite that has 2 bedrooms in the same room...lol. the restaurant on first floor is lunch and dinner only and let me tell you the menu and food rocks. The second floor...

The hotel is located a short cab ride from the Old City. Plenty of cabs abound right outside the hotel. My stay was made extra special when I was given a free upgrade to the best suite in the hotel! Top floor, balcony faced the ocean! A great buffet breakfast was included in my room rate and the gym/sauna were... More

Had the chance to stay there for two nights and the attention and food were better than expected. Healthy delicious breakfast and truly ggod options at the restaurants it has. Really nice place. I want to be there again. Prices are worth it.

All the rooms that are to the right of the elevators have an amazing view of the beach specially at sunset , the ones to the left have a beautiful view of a construction... My only recommendation to this hotel is extra electrical plugs because I had to plug all my things under the table next to the telephone's plug...... More

The hotel was recently remodeled, looks very new and clean. It is located in boca grande so a taxi to centro historico costs around 6.000 pesos (3usd). The breakfast was very good, has many options between pastries, eggs, fruits, cereal, jam and cheese. I would stay again.

Nice location if you want to be on the waterfront in bocagrande, less convenient for the historical center. Many rooms have been remodeled and are quite nice. Views are good. Food was hit or miss - some decent plates, but most were astonishingly bland. It was quite irritating that the pool closes early - it was never open at any... More

The hotel is modern, clean and for the most part the staff are friendly. Don't expect the staff to know English (even marginally). They also didn't do a very good job of anticipating the needs of foreigners (ex: washcloths are not part of the "standard" room makeup, and you will need to spend an exorbitant amount of time trying to...

Hotel Capilla del Mar just keeps getting better! The 1st luxury hotel in Boca Grande is still arguably it's best. The newly renovated floors are ultra modern. Balconies over looking the sun and Caribbean Sea kissed beaches add to the allure of this 20+ story tower. Don't miss rooftop pool and bar!
