"Off the beaten path"
If you like peace and quiet times, away from the hustle and bustle, this is the place to stay in central Algarve. The host Joao was very accommodating and always took the extra step to make our stay very pleasant. Breakfast was very complete and available beyond normal hours. Keep it up!

"BEAUTIFUL HOTEL"
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 and clean but also built in traditional style. Each room has its own large patio or balcony depending whether you are on the ground or first floor. The rooms each have an en suite and air conditioning.There is a good buffet breakfast included. The staff are superb, particularly the host Juan. Nothing was ever too much trouble for him and he made us feel really welcome and comfortable for the 9 days we stayed. From the improvement work still going on it looks like at some point this hotel is going to be a lot bigger and more impersonal and may become spoiled like the rest of the area, so it should be visited sooner rather than later. Hopefully I'm wrong and it stays as perfect as it is now! The village across the street is still relatively unspoiled and is 2 minutes walking distance. It has some nice restaurants, particularly A Marizilnha, Unfortunately, a few kilometers down the road is the horror of "tourist Algarve" - very tacky - but if you want a peaceful , relaxing vacation Capela das Artes is for you

"Peaceful, relaxing, charming accommodation."
I arrived late but someone had kindly waited for me for which I was really grateful. The room was large and spotlessly clean with a large balcony which got the sun the whole morning. WiFi was easy to connect and worked well. The room was really comfortable and the area so peaceful, that I slept really well. The pool was huge and always very clean - hardly anyone else used it during the time that I was there so it was like my own private pool.Joao was always friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great - fresh bread, fruit, orange juice and strong coffee (perfect!). I have travelled literally all over the world and stayed in many places of all standards - this was charming, clean and comfortable. Great value and I enjoyed my 6 night stay. I would happily return. I am not sure Galamand actually stayed in the same hotel as me as I don't recognise any similarity between their experience and mine!I did not see anywhere on the website that a bar was available so was not expecting one.

"Very good Portuguese style hotel in handy location"
Main reception & dining part of this hotel is in a beautiful old Portuguese Manor House, approached via a grand drive & set in lovely grounds. The manager is excellent, with a very positive 'no problem' attitude & was always very helpful. Superb two level swimming pool, loved by my 2 children. 3 good places to eat within 5 minutes walk in the adjacent village. Much more choice within 10 minutes drive in neighbouring towns. Across the road is a very Handy Aldi supermarket & a huge & slightly surreal Chinese emporium selling quite literally everything. (They captured a significant portion of the children's pocket money! And supplied us with stuff for days by the pool). Rooms are in a modern 2 storey block separate & behind the main house. Clean, simple, air conditioned & well maintained. Quiet location but within minutes of Zoo marine, a smaller water park (Slide & splash is 20 mins by car), a large sand sculpture exhibition & the beach. Car advised for ease but not essential, people seemed to be using taxis or hire cars. Would recommend for couples or families. A great find. We will go back!

Great place, great people, with great attidude. We arrived early but not only the room was ready, we received 2 joint rooms for 4 of us (couple with 2 kids). Located 3 minutes walking from the village center and 5 minutes drive from the highway, Capela des Artes was easily accesible. My kids enjoyed the pool very much! Rooms were very comfortable. Good breakfast. In short - very recomended. Definitely will come back!

"Beautiful Authentic Portuguese Ranch style Hotel"
Fantastic Hotel in large grounds smattered with beautiful art work and Olive trees. The rooms are clean and comfy with balconies or terrace areas in three buildings 50 yards from the Main House. The Hotel has a large pool on 2 levels with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas. The staff are very friendly and helpful and serve a fine continental breakfast. The Hotel is 200 yards from the local village (Alcantarilha) which has 2 excellent restaurants and within 5-20 minutes of many spectacular beaches. This is a great Hotel to relax in but don't expect big screen tvs or Jacuzzis or the latest luxuries; I would highly recommend this hotel for couples and people who don't like the large resort hotels and want a great base to discover the Algarve.

"Romantic and secluded"
We stayed at this hotel because of past surveys, location and price. The hotel is inside a gated fence; the 30 unit rooms a located in a separate building surrounded by olive trees and palm trees. The large room and bathroom was comfortable but had a small TV with just 1 English speaking station. We selected the upper floor, recommended, for its large, private balcony. The pool was large, very large with lounge chairs and umbrella's. There is a large, free parking lot on the grounds. This was the "low season" and the grounds were not kept up which ruined the ambiance; the pool bar, bar, and roof-top terrace was also closed. A large, modern supermarket was located across the street and 4 restaurants were a short 5 minute walk from the hotel. The beaches were an easy 10 minute drive away. This is a very nice, private and quiet hotel. Jaoa was very helpful and provided useful information. He placed a small refrigerator in our room along with extra pool towels. The main building (reception) is 500 yrs old and has art work, sculpture, and other works to view. Stay here.

"rural landscape"
The hotel is in the middle of creating a new image for itself, so the bar is yet to be finished but the restaurant and lounge areas are completed so the atmosphere is a mixture of rural, artistic ambience - very laid back. The hotel rooms are located in an olive grove, antique sculptures are placed artistically in the gardens. The hotel succeeds in creating agro-tourism atmosphere with lots of space, different from most of the tourist hotels at the beaches nearby. A main road is nearby so we quickly travelled to other places in the Algarve. We enjoyed our stay.

Es un hotel rural, pero de rural sólo tiene el nombre. La habitación es muy cómoda, con nevera, terraza y unos baños muy bonitos. La piscina es muy tranquila.

"Hééérlijk rustige plek en heel centraal gelegen!"
Wij hebben genoten! Zijn net terug van een week in dit hotel. De appartementen liggen er goed bij. Ze zijn eenvoudig maar goed uitgerust met een lekker bed en een goede badkamer met bad. De houten schermen en de airco in de kamer houden het koel en heerlijk donker. Ook heb je een klein koelkastje en een heel klein TVtje. Het park heeft een heerlijk zwembad en ontbijt is prima (niet mega uitgebreid - maar prima om je dag te starten). Er is genoeg parkeergelegenheid en je hebt op loopafstand een supermarkt. Ondanks dat het hotel aan de N125 ligt, is het er heerlijk rustig. Je komt hier echt bij. Ik vind het iets minder geschikt voor kinderen, ik zou dan een klein speeltuintje missen, al is het kinderbad misschien wel voldoende. Het ligt super centraal gelegen! Alcantarilha zelf is een rustig dorpje, in 10 minuten zit je op de stranden van Armacao de Pera (super!) en met een kwartier in Carvoeiro. Ook is de N125 een goede uitvalsbasis voor trips naar Sagres, Monchique of juist richting Spanje.

Le propriétaire - qui parle un français impeccable - est sans doute tombé sous le charme - comme moi. Petit déjeuner copieux. Grande piscine.

"Einfach mal 2 Tage abtauchen..."
Fern ab vom Strand - leider in der Nähe der Autobahn, die im Sommer natürlich stark befahren ist, so dass im Hintergrund immer ein Rauschen zuhören ist - sonst wäre es der perfekte Ort für einen längeren Aufenthalt. Der Empfang war sehr freundlich, so dass man sich gleich wohl gefühlt hat. Großzügige Zimmer, eine sehr große und ruhige Pool-Landschaft mit Liegen und Sonnenschirmen, ein mit Olivenbäumen angelegter Garten - alles sehr sauber, freundlich, hell und einladend. Als ruhesuchende "Single-Reisende" für ein paar Tage der beste Ort zum Abschalten, obgleich die Zimmer auch sehr hellhörig sind. Geräuschempfindliche Gäste mögen daher an ihre Grenzen geraten...

"Atención inmejorable y descanso absoluto"
Estuvimos alojados una semana durante este mes de Agosto, y la experiencia fue estupenda. Encontrar un rincón especial en el que desconectar en una zona tan turística no tiene precio. El hotel y las instalaciones tienen un gran encanto, las habitaciones son sencillas pero confortables y espaciosas, y la piscina es sin duda uno de los mayores atractivos del hotel. El trato por parte del personal fue estupendo, cálido y cercano. Recomiendo disfrutar de la experiencia del desayuno, no es un buffet libre al uso, pero que te sirvan en la mesa un zumo de naranja recién exprimido es una de las mejores formas de empezar el día. La ubicación del hotel es estupenda para recorrer el Algarve, ya que el acceso tanto a la carretera nacional como la autovía están muy próximos al mismo. Aunque el hotel no dispone de servicio de restaurante para comidas y cenas, a pocos metros están los restaurantes del pueblo, y en todo caso en unos cinco minutos en coche se llega a la localidad de Armaçao de Pera, que dispone de una buena playa y de un paseo marítimo con todos los servicios turísticos al uso. Repetiremos sin duda.

"A quieter side to the Algarve"
09/07/15 peters591 Gosport, United Kingdom
A wonderful spot away from the hustle and bustle of the larger tourist spots on the Algarve. A quiet and restful stay visiting the local sights and sitting by the pool chilling out. Very pleasant rooms with all you need for for a stress free stay. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and we were well looked after. Definately look forward to staying there again in the future.

"Very rustic"
09/07/15 Anete P
We booked one day before our stay and got a great deal. The man at the reception is also the owner and he is very friendly and polite. He also served breakfast which is awesome. I like nothing more than an owner actually working at the place. Room was clean, had a huge bathroom with a tub, a small fridge, wifi all over the place(yup, even by the pool), a balcony and a big garden with a pool. The breakfast was very good, excellent bread and fresh orange juice brought to the table for everyone. The place has its charm and looks super cool with all the statues and rustic design but could use some maintenance and a few things were worn out(only outside!). But these are things that for me don't really lower the value. Still a nice place to stay. :)) A few minute walk away from lovely little restaurants.

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 and has two levels. Plenty of sun loungers available and although being alongside a main road, never noisy. Admittedly the bar wasn't open yet as they hadn't finished decorating it yet. But so what, there are several bars in the village all of 300 yards away and a supermarket opposite that opens 9-9 every day. We found it excellent value for money and would be more than happy to return. Friendly people. Makes for a very relaxing stay.

"Hotel this is not!!!"
07/09/15 Galandmand Kesgrave, United Kingdom
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 to stay, the lack of investment and "shoe string" economics that prevail are very apparent. From lack lustre breakfasts, to rock hard beds, Bar that is never open(apart from the two busy months of the year), filthy swimming pool (that had no cleaning maintenance during our five night stay, and much more!!!. Fortunately we moved onto a more familiar accommodation(and a well maintained pool) for the following five days, 45 euros per person more for the same time( or 9 euros pp per day), the difference could not be more extreme. Please choose wisely, there is much excellent choice in this part of the world-be warned. I complained to the owner/manager and was given a explanation of lack of investment and facilities only being available at peak times?. I have on my return home felt compelled to complain to both the booking agent and the Portuguese Tourist Authority, which I have never had to consider previously.

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.

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 extremely large, comfortable, and very, very quiet. We were the only guests at Capela on our one night stay, which is surprising given the price of 40 ish Euros B&B There are very good restaurants within walking distance. Overall a very pleasant stay and we would return for longer next time

09/09/14 RachelAmazona London, United Kingdom
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 and the town has numerous restaurants, all within walking distance and good value. The atmosphere of the hotel is idyllic and tranquil and despite bordering the N125 barely any noise is heard. The main house is worth exploring with various pieces of art throughout. For the beach lovers: Praia Grande (Armacao de Pera) and Salgados are approx 3km away and link with Praia Gale. My husband and I will definitely be returning.

"BEAUTIFUL HOTEL"
08/15/14 Traveller205 Brandon, Florida
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 and clean but also built in traditional style. Each room has its own large patio or balcony depending whether you are on the ground or first floor. The rooms each have an en suite and air conditioning.There is a good buffet breakfast included. The staff are superb, particularly the host Juan. Nothing was ever too much trouble for him and he made us feel really welcome and comfortable for the 9 days we stayed. From the improvement work still going on it looks like at some point this hotel is going to be a lot bigger and more impersonal and may become spoiled like the rest of the area, so it should be visited sooner rather than later. Hopefully I'm wrong and it stays as perfect as it is now! The village across the street is still relatively unspoiled and is 2 minutes walking distance. It has some nice restaurants, particularly A Marizilnha, Unfortunately, a few kilometers down the road is the horror of "tourist Algarve" - very tacky - but if you want a peaceful , relaxing vacation Capela das Artes is for you
