I wish I were there now
I've stayed at the Capitan Suizo multiple times. I adore this hotel.
The rooms are lovely, the grounds are beautiful and you can see the beach from the pool.
As a travel agent I often recommend this hotel to other travelers.
It's location is perfect. It is off the main street, so a short walk is required to get "into town" but I personally enjoy these short barefoot beach walks into town. A few things I didn't see mentioned in the other reviews that contribute to my satisfaction with the Capitan is that it's location just outside of the town circle is a few degrees cooler than the temperature in town which is refreshing if you go to town on a particularly scorching day.
Also, the hotel itself is rather small and it's set up is very conducive to socializing and mingling with other hotel guests. The pool/bar/restaurant common area are all adjacent to each other and have the effect of an outside "great room". I have spent many a pleasant evening sipping local beer and chatting with other guests.
The staff at Capitan are extremely knowledgable and friendly and seem to be genuinely proud of their hotel and eager to share it with you. As someone who frequents the area often I've noticed that the hotel does not have a high turnover rate so that the friendly staff you chatted with and remember fondly from your last visit most likely will be the SAME friendly staff you see again the next time. There is a great comraderie among the staff and it's lovely to have such a familial place to return to after a long day surfing or sailing.
Some people may deem the lack of A/C in the 2nd floor rooms a problem, but I found it to be really comfortable as it is apparent that a lot of thought and planning went into designing rooms with more than sufficient breeze cross flow.
Each stay is more enjoyable than the last!
I'm already planning a return trip(around the Capitan's room availability, of course)
