This resort is fabulous! Small and the staff is super friendly! Perfect for families or couples or if you are solo! The staff will help you with any excursions and recommendations. The restaurant is fabulous as well! Walk out on the beautiful beach or lay by the pool! Either makes for a perfect day!

This is the most amazing hotel in all respects. The beach is fabulous, the food wonderful and the accommodations are excellent. The staff are genuinely kind and helpful. A most relaxing holiday! the hotel is a short walk to the town or the taxi ride is only minutes away for 5 dollars.

We had the beach bungalow, right on the beach, beautiful views of long quiet beach. Wonderful for swimming, jogging, comfortable padded chairs to relax. This is a small hotel with beautiful grounds, large pool and excellent restaurant. Service was friendly and prompt. Everything you would want for a great beach vacation.

My sister and I just spent four lovely days & nights at Capitan Suizo. It's hard to know what to comment on first, but I think it would have to be the friendly and helpful staff. Everyone we dealt with provided efficient service in a relaxed manner. Our bungalow was spectacular...comfortable interior, hammock outside. It was located 30 feet from... More

We have now stayed at Capitan Suizo seven times and love it each time. Although the cabinas are a little dated, they are clean and perfectly adequate. The two best things about the hotel, however, are the amazing beach and the wonderful staff. We are always greeted like family and love to meet interesting people at the bar. Vinicio, the... More

After watching the sunset on the beach in front of Capitan Suizo we had drink at beachside bar. Beautiful location. After chatting with Leandro, we decided to try the restaurant. Great food & service. Max, our waiter, was slow with our drink order as the place filled up. But quickly made up for it. Excellent appetizers and salads. Recommend the... More

I loved the Capitan Suizo. Though it was clean and comfortable the entire time, I also felt that they were very eco friendly and cared for their environment. Loved all the animals you can hang out with! Better than any excursion.

My boyfriend and I walked into this hotel from the beach thinking it was a restaurant, then we realized it was a hotel. We parked ourselves by the pool, which is for hotel guests only. The staff doesn't know if we are guests or not because guests do not wear wristbands. So we spent the afternoon at the pool drinking... More

DearWonderWoman679, We are glad you liked our Hotel and enjoyed our facilities, even tough, as you mentioned in your review, the pool area and the towels are for guests only. At the entrances we have signs indicating this clearly. The main reason for this policy is to ensure that our guests can enjoy the most of this area. It is... More

Great experience, delightful staff, clean , well kept property in a fantastic location. If you want low key but classy this is the place. I would recommend it in a heart beat. The food including the breakfast buffet was excellent. If you want more action the 1 mile walk into town along the beach is easy but that one mile... More

This is a terrific hotel. The location at the end of a long beach is perfect, nice and quiet, far from any noisy activities in town but just a short walk down the beach to get into town. The staff is fantastic, everyone is friendly and works to make your stay perfect. The rooms are great, very spacious and comfortable... More
