My wife and I were at Copal three years ago. It was at a time of some major transsion for the resort. But we fell in love with the simplicity of the place. No electric, was great the candles were very romantic . We walked to town for food. We were there for 5 days. We love the fact that... More

This is not a current review, but one reflective of our experience a long time ago. My experience at Cabanas Cobal dates back 7 years. The cabana's were clean, well kept, and the sea view cabanas had marvelous views of the water, with sea breezes flowing through. The restaurant was open at that time, and we had some great breakfasts....Mexican... More

In the first place, the website does not have enough photos of the cabins, and the ones they have are from the one big cabin. So don't get too excited about your room if you are not staying in that one. My cabin, the king seaview, didn't have a door for the bathroom, so it wasn't the most romantic experience.... More

Wow what a nice place to take it easy and just relax on the beach! The beach is pretty small but really nice! And the water is warm! There is also a spot on the beach that is clothing optional. There is no electricity there only candles :) It changes you from your every day life! Vladimir at the lobby... More

i had great expectations about going there. i like the eco character but providing us with a place that is more or less a hostel for charging us luxury prices. no shelfs or anything to put your stuff on to...everything was on the floor. breakfast was served after 8 somewhen and there seemed to be no need to assist guests...

This was my first visit to Mexico and I'm glad I choose this hotel..the staff and the manager Roberts are very friendly and helpful and made me feel at home. The beach is nice and service good and they provided me with any possible tips about tours etc I needed to make my stay great. Definitely place to visit!

I have been to Copal three times over the past few years, thoroughly enjoying each stay. But my last visit, in January 2013, was disappointing. I had stayed at Copal and Zahra, which is just down the road and owned by the same parent company (EcoTulum), on each of three previous trips to Quintana Roo. My wife and I generally... More

I have been to Cabanas Copal 3xs before for different reasons. I had amazing experiences each time I have come. I came down with my mom because I wanted to show her what a beautiful place Tulum was and how great Cabanas Copal was. When we were shown to our cabana I was so happy with the choice of the... More

I stayed at Cabanas Copal for two nights and found the hotel very quiet. It is now essentially a part of Azulik and they share the same checkin desk. They Mayan Spa is on site as well but I did not have any services there. Cabanas Copal was much larger in the past and now a large fence divides the... More

This place is terrible and not worth a peso... it is in the middle of the jungle and unless you pay 300 USD a night you will not see the ocean at all. It is possible to reach the beach via a stairway, however the beach is so rocky that you will neither be able to swim nor to escape... More
