“Beware”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

After returning home from our stay we discovered we had been charged $300 for smoking in the room. I called the hotel and was told four times the management would call me back each time nobody called I also was told there were pics of the room and the pics would be E Mailed to me but that also never happened This hotel has quit a scam going and is the first time we have ever ran into anything like this. We have used Tripadvisor too find over 30 hotels in 13 states and until now we have never been misled by the reviews but this property is the exception there are a lot of other places to stay on South Padre Island and I am sure you can find one that will not try to SCAM you.

We went in December for my birthday weekend and the front desk person gave us a free upgrade to the beach view room. Hotels location is perfect for morning sunrise from the room. Great price for the amenities and facilities you get.

Everything about our stay was perfect. This was our first trip to South Padre Island and we are already talking about the next trip down, and we will be staying at La Copa the next time as well. The staff was very helpful and friendly, the guests were even friendly. It was very clean and well taken care of. The location is perfect, right on the beach, but also close to food, shopping, nightlife. The free breakfast comes with your standard continental breakfast offerings, as well as waffles, and fresh made to order omelets! This can easily turn your breakfast into a brunch and save some money on lunches. They also have a pool and hot tub that face the beach, also very clean and taken care of, also with a window into the hotel bar. 10 out of 10 here!

My boyfriend and I stayed the weekend at La Copa FOR MY BIRTHDAY WEEKEND 12/12/14. It was a great experience. When you first walk in it is the "WOW" effect...very clean floors were shiny nice lobby area with a starbucks...great price also!! the rooms were very nice and clean and updated!! The walk to the beach was just a few steps away and the pool and hot tub were awesome!! I really liked seeining the special needs chairs at the pools for the special people in our lives who dont get a chance to swim at all...That really touched my heart!! I will definitely stay again..Thanks La Copas!!! THE PARKING IS FAR FROM THE ROOM BUT EVERYTHING ELSE MADE UP FOR IT!!!

Room Tip: Beach view would have been nice

Firstly, I was really impressed by the staff's friendliness and the cleanliness of the room. The just remodeled feeling in the room greatly stepped up the experience with a great look to match the service. It's rare to find a place this accommodating for the price. Highly recommended

My stay was wonderful, and it was highlighted even moreso with the sweet, respectful, and beautiful young lady that works downstairs in the Starbucks. Her name is Mary Aran and I wanted to compliment your management on hiring and keeping such great staff!! I will definitely be coming back

I Just got home and miss la copa already!!! My girlfriend and I went to the island this weekend and stayed at la copa for the first time. It's such a nice hotel from the moment you arrive they have Christmas lights in the shape of a Xmas tree on the building. Inside the lobby is decorated very nice as well. At the front desk is a great guy named Lionel who checked us in super courteous and welcoming made us feel right at home and helped us with any request that we had. We stayed In the jacuzzi suite on the first floor every thing was clean and worked well. It has a back patio and access to the pool and boardwalk that leads to the beach that makes walking to the beach a breeze so close it's great. The pool and hot tub are heated and we're working perfect. They have plenty of chairs and places to lay out a lil bar and Grill also with a tv makes it nice. The next morning breakfast was delicious we had such a lovely time we decided to stay again. The next morning Gustavo checked us in to a room on the 4th floor with a balcony and great view. Super cool guy very nice all the staff is great and have good hospitality. Over all I would highly recommend la copa on your trip to south padre. I will definitely be back. Big thanks to everyone there!! Ps. Check out the art in the 1st floor hallway
