We stayed at the Copacabana Hotel & Suites from July 10 through the 17. We were with two travel companies who took over the resorts. Our agent was great, she traveled with us and let us know up front that the resort was not a 5 star property but that it had character. Our room was a pool view studio.... More

My friend and I really enjoyed ourselves at the relaxed professionally managed Copacabana in Costa Rica. Our large suite provided us with the freedom of space which can maximize the enjoyment of a vacation. Two pools offered au naturel bathing and regular for the more reserved. Guests included a wide range of interesting couples and singles from all over Europe,... More

We were part of a group staying at copacabana during a "takeover" that was all inclusive. The resort is clearly trying to sell itself to couples like us who have visited Desire and Hedo and are looking for an alternative. To those folks, we can only say keep looking and avoid Copacabana. Rooms - They are small and desperately in... More

Most of this review is totally false in the allegations raised and is solely put here to deflect where the true blame lies, regarding the promises made by the travel agency Travel Au Naturel from Chicago. Travel Au Naturel rented the whole hotel for one week. We do not market ourselves as like Desire, Mexico and our prices are more... More

I spent an entire week at the Copacabana and it was outstanding. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was made me feel at home and my stay was just a really fun time. I highly recommend this hotel for fun times and very friendly environment. Randy

This is a bug invested, under capitalized hotel that takes advantage of adult travelers. The food was surprisingly good, but everything else was terrible. Bugs, did I say bugs in the rooms? Everything about the rooms was bad. Hookers everywhere. Transients everywhere. This place is terrible.

This was my favorite hotel in my entire month long stay in Costa Rica. As far as the adults only part goes, We found it refreshing that we could enjoy ourselves without hearing a bunch of screaming kids. The hotel was safe, and the staff was friendly. While you are there be sure to book a fishing trip with Julian.... More

I just returned from Jaco thursday May 13th and had an email from trip advisor on vacation specials, so thought I would check out what people were saying about the hotel. The first review I saw was the one "hookers and drug dealers on every corner" I almost started laughing because these people were from Atlanta and think Jaco is... More

If you are single, young, looking for fun, the Copacabana is the place for you. I stayed for a week in Jaco with friends, we are all in our 20's and needed to get away. Jaco is a wonderful surfing destination and the Copa is right on the beach (literally 50 feet away from sand) The staff was friendly and... More
