La Capilla
Ranked #24 of 65 Hotels in Punta del Este
Reviewed 13 January 2010

I stayed in La Capilla for a week, during new years' holidays, so the hotel prices were amazingly high! I think the hotel doesn't worth the price, but considering the average hotel prices in Punta at this time of the year, it was a good deal. Our room was at the first floor and it was OK, nothing special at all... old and small TV, queen bed... anyway, they kept the room very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful all the time. The Hotel is located in San Rafael, a very nice neighborhood in Punta, next to Brava beach. There are no restaurants and stores nearby the hotel, so you'll probably need a car. One thing you should aware of is that the swimming pool in not inside the hotel body, but a 2 minutes walk from there.

La Capilla is a delightful hotel. I just don’t understand some of the reviews on this site. The hotel has nice grounds, a terrific and fashionable swimming pool area, a quiet and restful location in a beautiful residential neighborhood, and is convenient to a nearby beach and to both La Barra and to central Punta. It is near a taxi stand and near the main bus route, and a nice walk into town, and a block from a great bike rental shop. While the furnishings in the rooms might not be the height of luxury, the rooms are nevertheless fine. And the rest of the amenities at the hotel more than compensate for this small issue. We would definitely return – I cannot imagine a better location in Punta, since here you get both relaxation of its great location as well as easy access to the Punta hotspots. I could spend days at its pool, luxuriating in the décor and atmosphere. What a gem.

What a terrible dump, motel 6 - is a place in comparison with this "4 stars hotel" and the restaurant is a good match to this hotel!

We stayed in this hotel for 1 night and ... it was the worst hotel we ever stayed. We got a room on the first floor and the smell in the room was terrible. I believe it is mildew, or something like it...
We asked to for another room and we were offered 2 other rooms, which were not too much better... Shower was not working, A/C is noisy, etc.
Old hotel with all related problems!
Italian restaurant next door is terrible! Italian restaurant, which could not make simple pizza (they made pizza for us from dry pita bread with no cheese)!!!
Stuff is helpful, but there are not much what they can do.
Avoid this hotel - you will not enjoy wonderful Punta Del Este staying in this hotel.

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.
