My husband and I booked 4 nights at the Capricorn in February. On its website, the rooms (each w/a hammock) look lovely, and we don't mind that there are only 3. It seems that would insure individualized attention and a genuinely friendly atmosphere (so far been true via e-mail exchanges). However, whenever I ask anyone on the boards about it, everyone says the Capricorn is not really a place to stay, and it doesn't have any ammenities. True, there's no pool (which I admit I missed when I first booked), but does anyone know for a fact what kind of experience we might expect here? They've said they can book tours for us, pick us up at the airport, arrange our transfers to & from BC, provide bikes and golf carts to get into SP, and, of course, have a great restaurant. What ammenities are they lacking?

Capricorn's is know mainly for its fine food, not as a resort. I've never stayed in the rooms, but have eaten at the restaurant a few times. You'll definitely eat well and I'm sure you'll get good service. I think the peacefulness of the resort changes around mealtime, as patrons come and go for lunch and dinner. They get a pretty good crowd, tends spill out onto the beach area.
