Real review from Boston guy here. My main interest was staying somewhere in Jaco for a couple of nights that had an ocean view close to the beach. Copacabana fit the bill, and the price was right. We were in room on 3rd floor, with Jacuzzi on balcony (we used quite a bit). I really liked the staff there, everyone... More

I had never been to Costa Rica before but finally did so based on my friends commenting about how wonderful the country was. I stayed in the Copacabana Hotel and Suites in Jaco. The hotel sits right on the beach off the main street. I found the staff at Copacabana to be really very good and helped any way they... More

Continuing with my trip to Costa Rica, the Copacabana in Jacó had the perfect mix of sun and sand. I lounged in the big pool, skinny dipped in the "adult" only pool and walked out (with clothes on) on the sandy beach of Jacó. The hotel fronts onto the beach, so no having to walk blocks to dip my feet... More

I was hosted at this hotel for 3 days, is a natural paradise, close to the beach, with a really nice beach view, the service and the food is really good. I recommend the "chicken Burrito" and if you are looking for gourmet dishes, any kind of pasta is delicious. But if you are looking for seafood dishes, they have... More

Stayed at the copa with a group of friends and we had a great time. I hate to see how people can make up stories to hurt somebody. Is not my first time staying here. I always had soap in my room, shampoo and when I stayed in a room with a jacuzzi I also had bubble bath. The staff... More

In a word, TERRIBLE. Start with no soap in the rooms. The pool and Jacuzzi were disgusting Would you want to swim in a pool at a hotel that doesn't provide soap? And Forget about secure rooms. Even locked doors could be easily opened. The safes aren't secure. What good is a safe that isn't secured in place? What a... More

Not a family friendly place. The beach is public and there is a lot of local people here. Great waves for surfing. If I did this trip again I would skip Jaco all together. Pollution, garbage, diesel, prostitution, drugs, you know, great for 20 somethings on spring break, but not a great place for families. Overpriced, paid breakfast was $33... More

My husband and I just took a vacation to Costa Rica. We selected this hotel because it was close to the beach... The location is great and is right by the beach; however, the room was very dirty and looked nothing like was shown in the pictures. They only have one pool, but people swim NAKED. My husband and I... More
