This is NOT a B&B but is a 100% proper hotel (the owners have asked Tripadvisor to correct their listing), with a reception, restaurant, swimming pool, etc. I suspect where the confusion has come from is that the owners operate four different properties (of different standards) in the village, of which this one is by far the best.
Although the building is old and in the very centre of the village on the church square, it has been completely refurbished to make the best of the old, whilst adding all those modern touches. Location could not be better, with everything within a few minutes walk. There is a free public car park two or three minutes walk away, but the staff just told us to park in the 'no parking' church square as "we have no problems with the police"!
One of the best features is the swimming pool, which is pretty uncommon for properties in such a location, and allows you to relax somewhere cool on a hot afternoon.
Caplieira itself is by far the nicest of the three "white villages". Pampaneira gets all the day trippers, whist Bubion straddles the road up to Caplieira. Caplieira being at the end of the road gets fewer day trippers and is nice and quieter place to stroll around, but still has plenty of bars, restaurants, and shops to keep everyone happy.
