We have travelled extensively around Italy and Europe but I can honestly say this has been a wonderful experience. The owners were welcoming and the staff always had a smile on their faces even though it was the end of the season and they must have been tired. A special mention goes to Marzia on Reception, Michaela on the Bar,and Marzia in the restaurant, not forgetting the two ladies who cleaned our room.
The Chef should have a Michelin star - the food was to die for. Plenty of choices and well cooked and presented.

We were on the fourth floor lateral sea view. The rooms could do with a bit of updating
but were always clean and tidy.

The Hotel is located in the Faro area and faces the sea with a large swimming pool.
We have nothing to say against this hotel as it was a wonderful experience.

Thankyou.

My friend and I stayed in Capitol during two weeks in August. It’s excellent hotel where you meet with atmosphere of friendliness and hospitality. The hotel has good position next to the beach on first line also Pedestrian Street with bar, shops, restaurants not far away. Local bus is only two streets away. When we arrived we hadn’t to wait time of check in and we were accommodated in a clean, comfortable room with side sea view. The room provides with all living requisites. The towels were changed every day; bedclothes were changed once per 3-4 days. The air conditioner was for free and you could change the temperature as you would like.
The place on the beach was given according our wish and didn’t change all time of our staying in the hotel. The beach bed and umbrella were for free. You could pay very reasonable price if you would like to lie next to the swimming pool. We didn’t use this service because we prefer to lie next to the beautiful sea.

The breakfast was good and took place on open air terrace with wonderful sea view. You needn’t to be at breakfast early morning because food never finished. The dinner was just fabulous every time. The courses never came again during two weeks. As we were in Italy first time we had possibility to try traditional Italian food from pasta till fresh seafood. We were served by elegant waiter and were very surprised the fact that it was owner of the hotel himself. He worked together with other waiters and watched over the quality service personally. Mr. Bruno gave us very good advises when we need help to choose a drink or food. He understands very well culture differences between people from different countries and different ages and he has his own individual approach for everybody. In general all hotel stuff is very professional, helpful, friendly and low-key servicing.
I would like to recommend this hotel for staying for everybody who is looking for surroundings of nice people, good service, excellent food and new interesting meetings.

Very good value for money. On the outskirts and a fab position if you don't want the busiest areas. Local restaurants are fabulous and not too expensive. We ate in the holdiay two nights which was also exceptional - four courses - a bit too much for us so opted to eat out. Our balcony was a little small with only one chair but all rooms had a sea view. Breakfast adequate but on a lovely terrace looking out to sea. The hotel has been recently refurbished and the decor in the dining room and reception/casual area are exquisite. We would definitely return

Book at the last minute with Thomsons, read the reviews and were suitably impressed when we got there.

The room was fresh clean and tidy and the whole exterior of the hotel had been recently re-decorated. The reception, bar, lounge and restaurant were tastefully decorated and the owner Bruno obviously wants everything kept to a high standard. 3 TVs for those inclined to catch the footy and grand prix, one in the bar and two in the lounge area. Sound kept to minimum.

The pool on par with the contemporary hotels adjacent ,has a pool that leads directly to the beach where there are reserved loungers and umbrellas for each room. It is a bit crowded there at weekends sometimes. The Italiens do things their own way and charge 3 euros p/person to use the loungers by the pool but don't charge on the beach.
Beware the seemingly endless stream of "Looky Looky" men selling their wares on the beach which was a bit wearing at times.

The hotel is located at the quieter end of Lido Di Jeselo which is an advantage. There are plenty of good restaurants within easy walking distance and regular buses if you want to go further afield. As previously reported not a lot of night life and the whole resort could do with a few bars as opposed to restaurants/gelaterieas that serve drinks. Not a major problem but you get the impression they want you to have a meal with your drinks a lot of the time.

Another slight irritation on the eating out aspect was there was quite a queue for the good restaurants between 6.30 and 8.30 if you are prepared to eat later, not a problem.

Decided to to upgrade to half board and were really impressed with the quality and value. If done on a one off basis it was 25 Euro p/person for buffet salad and a 3 course meal. If booked over a few nights it was only 15 Euros. The food was superb and would easily grace the tables at a good restaurant.

Drinks at the bar were not expensive and came out quite well compared to local prices.

Finally the staff were superb and could not do enough for you. Bruno the manager especially. He is up at the crack of dawn and mucks in with all of his staff and he is there at the end grabbing a quick bite to eat in the bar at 11.00. Could not do enough for you. Even took two young girls in his own car to a late opening restaurant on their first night when everything locally was closed. He is also the master at Irish Coffees and all forms of bar keeping having learned his trade in London prior to setting up business.
He owns the Capitol and the Marco Polo Hotels and is cureently setting up a seafood restaurant shortly. So he must be doing something right!

Nothing else to add a wonderful seven days and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing break.

We stayed at the Capitol as we did not wish to stay in hot and busy Venice where we were attending a wedding
The Capitol is a very well kept hotel and the owners were extremely helpful to us - we cannot thank them enough in giving much advise and practical help. They were lovely
I am sure we had the best room in the hotel - 123 - with a massive balcony overlooking the pool and sea beyond
We chose half board and had exeptional food in the evening with reasonable priced house wine. 4 courses which were all excellent, with evry good service from staff
Breakfasts also good with a buffet and also scrambled eggs and bacon
The beach and pool were good, and the bus stop is very close by - 45 minutes to the airport and about 1.2 hours to Venice by bus or bus and boat.
We really did enjoy our stay at the Capitol and recomend it as a very sensible alternative of you want to visit Venice and also enjoy the beach
