We just returned from our trip to Costa Rica, and our visit to Copa de Arbol was so special, I'm not sure how to sum it up in words. I had been reading reviews on Tripadvisor for months and everything you read is true. The food IS amazing. The cabinas ARE amazing. The property, the pool, it's all amazing. The... More

We are finally sitting down to write our review. It's been a whirlwind summer and we can't let this go any longer. Our first trip to Costa Rica included a 3 night stay at the Copa de Arbol. We are 40 and 41 and our kids are 13,11 and 7 and consider ourselves a pretty adventurous family. Our trip began... More

I really don't have much to add to the other reviews. The room was just beautiful! spacious, quality throughout. The staff are delightful and genuine. You are surrounded by the jungle with monkeys trying to raid the kitchen and toucans flying by during lunch. The naturalist on staff, Jose, was great. He took us to the National park for a... More

My best friend and stayed and it is a deluxe resort in a secluded rain forest. The food is amazing...the best we had in a nine days in costa rica and we stayed at five star resorts and ate at the top rated resturants in Costa Rica. Very impressed with the rooms that were very plush and featured teak wood.... More

Just returned home from this fantastic place on Monday. We were there from July 9th-the 13th. I will tell you right now it was worth every penny. Based on all they offer compared to what we paid, it was truly an awesome deal. I traveled with my husband and the minute we arrived the entire staff on this secluded resort... More

I have to say this is the very first time anyone has felt they lost weight while at Copa so that’s good news!! Usually people are joking about how they thought they were going to slim down on vacation until they came up against our fresh cinnamon rolls, chocolate chip cookies or Miguel’s crazy desserts ect… Sometimes when I am...

Just returned home from 11 days in Costa Rica! ( Our second trip) The last 4 were absolutely the best thanks to the Copa de Arbol! This place is everything you see and then some. Videos and pictures don't tell the story. You need to experience it first hand to hear the sounds, smell the aromas, take in the scenery... More

We couldn’t have hoped for a nicer group of 13 people to have for a visit. You guys are quite an inspiration. I am sure it’s not easy to get everyone together being all adults, and find the time and money to be able to make such a special trip happen. Even more impressive is that you guys do it... More

This was our third trip to Costa Rica in 4 years and Copa was the eighth place we stayed including Lapa Rios, Florblanca, El Silencio, and Nayara. My wife and I are in our mid-40s and we brought two boys ages 12 (son) and 14 (nephew). Our goal with every trip is to get as close to nature in the... More

I am grateful for all the people who have taken the time to post a review here on Trip Advisor. In only 2 ½ years of operation we have received 211 5-star reviews, which is a large amount in such a short time. This makes me truly proud of our staff, and reflects their genuine dedication to providing the best... More

I've been somewhat been procrastinating in writing this review for a week now because it just means I have to face the sobering reality, I am no longer there!

It’s a great feeling when the people that come to visit Copa truly connect with what we are trying to do. I have said many times in replies to reviews here that our staff is a family, not a group of employees. Many of the staff mentioned often in these reviews like Alberth, Rudy, Tony, Pinki, and many others grew... More

WOW!! What a wonderful experience we had. From the pick up at Drake Bay Airport, to the staff, bartenders, waiters, tourguides, everyone was 100% at our beck and call - whatever we needed, they were there. Only bad part about our stay was that we had to leave to come home. Would recommend this resort for anyone visiting Costa Rica.... More

Before my first visit to Drake Bay, I had for many years explored the entire coast between Los Angeles and Costa Rica. I saw more wildlife before lunch on my first day here than I had in all my other travels combined. I was so blown away that I knew right then that this was where I wanted to be.... More
