“Still remodeling!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Had to smile to myself as I'd seen several reviews. And still in progress! A little dissappointed as I'd requested wc accessible and wasn't given when we checked in and not accommodating as we'd booked thru other site. However. Room was huge and worked well for us. It was ok. Clean. Nothing fancy. Breakfast good.

Dear guest,

Thanks for writing your review. We are ashamed to you were not provided wheel chair access upon checking in. Our entire hotel is wheel chair accessible therefore there is no excuse why you didn't have wheel chair access. We are currently looking into your concern and make sure this doesn't ever happen again. Aside from that, we are glad you enjoyed your room and breakfast. We enjoyed your presences and hope to see you back again soon.

Thank you,
Aaron R.

This was a great place to stay. We were there for 5 days...Great staff..and great breakfast also. Although they were doing some remodeling in the lobby it did nor distract anyone or take away from the pleasant attitude of the desk and service people. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay on the island. Great location just off the bridge and close to schlitterbahn Park. We will stay there next time. Pool was a little warm to make up for the cold water at the beach. Hot tub was being retiled while we were there so we could not get in it...pool was warm enough anyway. Beds were great.
Thanks for making our stay a great one.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor. If all the rooms were like ours then any room would be good. Our room...

My only complaint would be that the air conditioning did not work well in our room (top floor, a room near back elevator). The pool is heated, so that's nice for South Padre Island's cool evenings. Each evening we should have had two free drinks at happy hour, per our travel deal, but at check-in, we were only allowed one free drink. The pluses exceeded the very few negatives. I'd recommend La Copa again, and even stay there again ;=)

Room Tip: Nice heated pool- perfect for a May evening in SPI.

Great hotel. I've stayed here before and always like it. Only thing I didn't like this time was the noisy and messy construction. The staff is always very helpful and willing to make suggestions about what to do in south padre. I look forward to staying there again. Can't wait to see how it will look once construction is done.

First off, they currently have construction going on in the lobby. We never heard it on the 3rd floor, and they are very accommodating when it comes to making sure there is an easy entrance/exit. The guys at the front desk were super nice and made sure we were comfortable. The layout of the hotel is almost exactly the same as the La Quinta Inn on the island! Front drive, floors, room layouts, etc.
My biggest complaint was that instead of carpet in the rooms they had tile. Which is great for sand clean up. Not so great for families with rowdy children. We heard our neighbors upstairs ALL hours of the late night...and early morning. They actually ran around so hard that one night they actually disconnected a piece of the finishing on the fan that hides the cables in the ceiling. My fiance and I were so busy running around we didn't bother asking to be moved to a different room...though I'm sure they would have. My other dislike was the shower. I'm only 5'3" and the shower head was at my height. Plus there was hardly any water pressure which again, made it difficult to even do simple things like rinse my hair out...
Breakfasts are free which is nice. Direct access to the beach which is a plus. Pool and hottub.
We went solely because we had a Groupon. And I think I now know why. I'm hoping the construction isn't just on the lobby. But time will tell. If you find a good enough deal to stay there and you're going to be busy on the island, it's a decent enough place to throw your bags and pass out for the night hours.

Room Tip: Top floor helps to avoid any footstep sounds from rowdy children running around on the tile flooring...

We visited La Copa the week before Memorial Day weekend (May 2013) with our 2 kids. While the construction that was going on was a slight inconvenience, it was not a big deal. We noticed a lot of places (restaurants, etc.) getting ready for the summer season and doing repairs, renovations, training new staff, etc. All in all, we liked the hotel. The kids fought over who would get to sleep on the pull out sofa, although I'm glad I didn't have to sleep on it! There were plenty of pillows, blankets, towels, etc.

The hotel has many green practices in place, including giving you the option of reusing towels instead of automatically having all towels and sheets washed every day. We were able to get as many towels as we needed, even going down to the beach, so that made packing easier!

The continental breakfast was great. The omelet bar is WELL worth the wait, since the ladies making the omelets are wonderful! I do wish that there was a place to eat breakfast that didn't have a TV blaring at us (and our kids), but I think that might be the norm in hotels? Maybe everyone watches TV while they eat breakfast and we're just weird!

If you're concerned about renovations, etc., just call and ask before booking your room. It really wasn't a big deal, but we're not picky. We were glad to have a view of the ocean and a comfy bed to sleep in! Oh - and the complimentary happy hour drinks were nice. Our kids felt like big shots sipping on their "free" Sprite!

Room Tip: full ocean view also includes pool view, but the higher the better....
