It seems that reviewer Galandmand must have had some sort of 'issue' with this hotel. If you are looking for flat screen digital tea making machines and spa conference facilities, then yes, this is not the place for you. We loved it. It is set in several acres and has a certain relaxed charm about it. The pool was clean... More

We have been travelling all over Portugal for the past 20 plus years, many of them spent in the Algarve, we love the place. Having driven past Capela on several occasions and liking the façade, we were curious to stay, which we did this June. I must say that this is the worst property I have ever had the misfortune...

Location is on the edge of an unspoiled village about 10 minutes drive from beach; great pool and grounds; good breakfast with excellent coffee. A bit of a walk from reception/breakfast room to accommodation through well kept grounds. Decent sized bedroom & bathroom with Patio area. Man on reception also serves breakfast and is extremely helpful and accommodating. Prices are... More

Great hotel with lovely pool and very friendly hosts: a place of peace and quiet with simple decor & the small number of rooms makes it an especially welcoming home from home for a short break or longer.

If you enjoy sanitized chain hotels ,Capela is not for you! This fifteenth century house is unique in every way . Very difficult to describe the décor or style ,we have never previously witnessed anything like it {in a very impressive way}. The accommodation is in a more modern building at the rear of the property and the rooms are... More

I recently hosted my wedding at this venue and it was made much easier by having accommodation for all of my guests. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Joao and his team are incredibly helpful and will go out of their way to sort out any requests or needs. The hotel is very easy to find opposite Aldi in Alcantarilha... More

This hotel is a hidden gem. It is a tranquil oasis in an absolutely awful tourist area. There are only 30 rooms which makes for a really relaxing, quiet vacation. The hotel is beautiful, set in an olive grove with lovely landscaping and pool. It is a traditional old Portuguese house that has been spectacularly renovated. The rooms are new... More

This hotel is fantastic and the customer service first class. Situated in an oasis of peace and calm midst the throbbing Algarve, it was a delight to find such a wonderful place to stay.

We visited the hotel in October and were the only guests so we enjoyed the peace and quiet of a wonderful setting with beautiful olive groves. A welcome break from the urban coastline a few kilometres away. The main building is full of charm but the hotel rooms are in modern buildings and are functional. The owner was extremely helpful...
