“Fun on the Beach hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

This hotel has a great location, on the beach in Jaco, and a 3 minute walk to the main street. It is an adult hotel and caters to happy mature people who enjoy meeting and conversing with each other around the pools and bar.

My friend and I stayed for 3 nights in Room 26 which included an in room Jacuzzi and two single beds, which was perfect for my buddy and me. The room was clean and included an in room safe, small refrigerator, coffee machine and hair dryer. The grounds are well kept and tropical vegetation is perfect. The pools are the gathering point throughout the day, with swim up bar in the main pool. The guests are happy and more than willing to converse, and the staff are cheerful and engaging.

We did not use the hotel restaurant as we preferred to eat at the many restaurants within walking distance of the hotel, however the restaurant looked inviting, clean and nice.

Taxis are readily available anywhere in Jaco if preferred over walking to the many restaurants, pubs and shops.

A couple of notes: Room 26 is on the second floor above the utility plant for the hotel and there is some noise from this that I'm guessing was the water pressure pump and valve for the hotel that keeps water pressure at the ready. This wasn't a bad thing as much as something we became accustomed to during our stay.

There are two pools, one of which is nude - this is appropriately secluded from outside view. For the main pool there may be some topless sunbathing, which was not an issue; I mention for information only.

There is music at the Iguana pool bar area that plays until 10 or 11pm each evening that will be heard in the rooms - again mentioning for information only.

In summary this hotel was perfect for our stay in Jaco.

Hotel staff was friendly and helpful from check in to check out. Room was always cool and clean stocked with fresh towels. They provided washcloths (normally not provided in Central America). Even though main pool is clothing optional I was usually only one nude. The nude pool was a little too active with sexual displays for me. Food and drink prices were in line with other places and the quality was always very good. Good location with all of Jaco within walking distance.

We love the Copacabana and we try to go more than twice a year! Rooms are clean but the one thing that make us go and enjoy our vacations are the great staff that works at the Copacabana!
Food is great and the prices are super reasonable !
Parties are fun so if you don't like to party and you like quiet do not go because they just want to have people having fun 24/7

This was my first trip to Costa Rica, and I cant wait to go back, the Copa was an excellent place to stay, the staff are amazing, they go above and beyond, they work long hours but they are always more than helpful and your greeted with a smile as you get out of your taxi and they have a nice cold beverage waiting for you as they get you checked in, the food was excellent...the smoothies to die for. Everything was spotless, the room was excellent, the bed was really comfortable. Lots of towels for the room and the pool, the pools were very clean, loved the nude pool, couldnt ask for better service...they are on "tica time"...so sit back and relax. A few steps to the stunning beach. We stayed for 11 days over Christmas and New Years, the dinner for New Years was excellent as long as you dont have a shell fish allergy. They had fireworks at midnight and lit off beautiful lanterns. Everything is a short walk from the Copa...I was very impressed with the accomodations, not the taj ma hall, but clean and comfortable. Will be back next Christmas...cant wait

The staff at the hotel are Absolutely Amazing! The hotel accommodations are not what you are expecting if you want a super high end luxury hotel. However, make no mistake about it; The accommodations are very nice, exceptionally clean, the grounds are very well maintained, and the staff goes above and beyond to ensure that you are satisfied with your stay.
I stayed in an ocean front jacuzzi suite and it was the best seat in the house for the New Year's fireworks show. The Copacabana is steps away from some of the most amazing beaches and walking distance away from the infamous Jacó Beach party nightlife that you may have already heard about!
I am such a huge fan, I am already planning to spend my 26th wedding anniversary at the Copacabana in July of this year. I hope your experience was as amazing as ours!

Room Tip: Ocean front rooms have the best view in the house.

For Jaco the place is great! The internet worked as well as can be expected. The food was very good and the staff was great! I stayed 18 days in a suite with and ocean view. The Copacabana is an adults only resort so you should expect to see anything!
