La Capilla
Ranked #27 of 67 Hotels in Punta del Este
Reviewed 16 October 2007

La Capilla is a great hotel in the San Rafael area of Punta. The staff is very sweet and helpful and the hotel has a very warm feel to it. It is nicely decorated and very clean. It is a short walk to the beach and a 5 min. cab ride to the center of Punta. Overall, I would definately come back to La Capilla.

We stayed at La Capilla over New Year's and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was great - at the end of a lovely palm tree lined street which led directly to a great beach in a beautiful residential area - providing the perfect balance to the hubbub of both Punta downtown and La Barra. Both Punta and La Barra were readily accessible by a short taxi ride and, for the more energetic, by bikes. Being four of us, we stayed in a suite and were pleased with the accomodations. From the moment we arrived and they sent us off to the pool with its wonderful atmosphere for relaxation and enjoyment to indulge us with free drinks and hors d'oeuvres, the staff ensured our stay was pleasant and all our needs met. The breakfasts were fantastic; and again, each morning the incredibly lovely staff made it clear that their goal was for us to feel as perfectly pleased, welcomed guests in their home. I would not hesitate to return or to recommend this hotel most highly.

The smaller rooms are tiny, with little or no closet space. The bigger rooms ($50 more) are a reasonable size, but wholly lacking in charm. The food at the restaurant is mediocre at best. On the positive side, the staff are very lovely people who genuinely try to please, the rooms are clean, and the neighborhood is lovely. But overall it is a decidedly mixed experience.

We stayed at La Capilla for 4 nights over Christmas in December of 2006. We had booked the room well in advance, paying US$130:-/night for a regular room.

For the first two nights we stayed in a regular room, it was ok but it was situated just below the stairs and the walls were quite thin so we heard everything from outside. The room was quite dark too. So for the last two nights we changed to a suite for $50:-/night more and absolutely loved it. It was very airy with a lot of light and we enjoyed the balcony too.

Service at the hotel was very friendly, no complaints. Hotel's restaurant "Roma Amor" (in reality situated 50 meters from the hotel) was excellent, really tasty food there and excellent service too. Pool was situated by the restaurant but I defintely preferred the Atlantic a 5-minute walk from the hotel.

Hotel is situated about 3 kilometers north of the center of Punta, and it is very easy to take taxis everywhere. Hotel can order a taxi for you, but there is also a taxi stand a 2-minute walk away towars the Atlantic.

We can recommend this hotel for a relaxing holiday away from all the stress.

If you´re looking for a relaxed inn with personal touch and modest relatively pricing, La Capilla is your place. When booking well in advance for the week between Christmas and New Years, which is a very tough reservation in Punta del Este, I landed upon La Capilla. It´s in a quiet residential neighborhood, centrally located and close enough between downtown and the popular beaches in La Barra. Most important, all the staff are sincere and very helpful. The rooms are simple and minimalist, but clean and very functional.
