This place caters to men looking for prostitutes. They all hang out at night in the restaurant and the "ladies" (not) circulate from table to table. Needless to say we cut short our stay there and went on to the Manuel Antonio are which was very nice. Lots of thievery in Jaco, witnessed with out own eyes. Never try to... More

My husband and I spent four nights Copacabana Hotel. Very friendly receptionist gets us to our room in no time. We are even given tickets for welcome drinks. My husband negotiated the price for a pool view room prior to our arrival. I agreed to a $3 per night charge for an in-room safety box but this was waived at... More

The location was wonderful, right on the beach, parking right on the premises, food was superb, staff was friendly especially Ginger, guests were friendly and... More

My wife and I just returned from a 10 day 39th anniversary trip to CR in February, with 2 days at the Copacabana. We were more than pleased. From the complimentary welcome drink at the cozy bar in back to the Jacuzzi suit with a stunning ocean sunset view, our stay was just outstanding. Myrna (with the wonderful smile), at... More

I have been staying at the Copa every time I visit Costa Rica, which now has been about 10 times over the past 2 years. I love the Copa, its staff, food, entertainment and definitely its location. I love hearing the music in the morning till night. The karaoke nights are awesome along with the live music. The renovations to... More

I just had another great trip to Costa Rica, and of course stayed several times in the Copacabana. Often times, when a client becomes familiar with the employees there is an unintentional drop-off in service. But, not at the the Copa. I was greeted every stay, as well as every day, by a hello and a smile. The pool had... More

I have stayed at the Copacabana around 20 times. They support the Surfing Federation in Costa Rica, beach cleanups, overall town planning and more. They are one of the "good citizens" of Jaco. The staff is always friendly with me. I am from the US, but long ago gave up the "ugly American" attitude. I go to Jaco to enjoy... More

I have stayed at the Copacabana many times over the past few years. I have never had a bad experience. Located close to the main street in Jaco, yet on the beach. The same employees have been there for years, making it a destination that is almost like family. It is relately quiet during the day, with music at night.... More
