“Enough!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

In Copamarina you get enough for what you pay, even more if you get a good offer. The place in nice, very Nice! We have done two conventions years ago, and they mantain this place very well. Sunsets are breathtaking, rooms are nice, but they can invest in pillows and new mattresses. (this my wife speaking). The Alexandra, the fine dining restaurant on premises, was disappointing. It used to be one of the best tastes in the Island. Today, is far from that.

“Enough”

Dear Tkierce,
We appreciate your feedback and are happy to hear you had a great time at Copamarina.

Our guestrooms rooms are currently under renovations which will include soft goods like new king size pillows and linen, new furniture, fresh coat of paint and other extras that are expected to be completed by next summer of 2013.

We regret to hear that our Alexandra’s Restaurant did not meet your expectations. To provide alternatives to our guest we have incorporated exquisite high quality alternatives to complement our “A la carte” menu with fresh fish from local fisherman in town and top standard ingredients. Certainly next time you visit the Resort you will enjoy our changes and renovations.

We hope to see you in the near future at our Resort.

I "splurged" to stay at a place where I could walk out of my room and go into the water. Well, I could have done that if I didn't care if the water was murky and uninviting. There was not ONE guest swimming in the ocean. You can pay to take a boat to Gilligan's Island so you can experience clear water. The grounds are beautiful but it was difficult to get pictures because the minute you stopped to pose, you got attacked by mosquitoes. Not the souvenir I wanted to bring home! The breakfast buffet had average food at a golden price. Rooms were average......bathrooms needed an upgrade with a ceiling fan to reduce the moisture problem. You have to sign a document swearing that you won't bring in a cooler with your own food. Was it worth it to pay almost $400 for 2 nights at a place where you couldn't swim in the ocean............no! Save your money.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view! You can look at it even though you can't swim in it.

Dear ‘’Pictures are misleading”

Thanks for posting your feedback related to your recent visit at Copamarina. We are sorry to hear about your disappointments in regards to our beach conditions and natural environment. Our beach is naturally shallow, this provides to our guest to bring the beach chairs to the water and place them under the beach bohio. Due to Government regulations we are not allow to remove the sea grass.

For swimmers, beside Guilligans Island (a small Cay just minutes away), we will be adding extra beach chairs and beach umbrellas to the west side beachfront, just steps away were is more swimmable.

Actually at the far end of our pier we do have a ladder that allow our guests to swim from above 4 ft of water. In the next couple of month a lower deck will be added to easily access to the water and a swim deck platform will be complementing it !

Our guest room renovations has started already adding a fresher and contemporary look to our resort!

We hope to see you in the near future to enjoy our newest additions!!

Sincerely

Rabin Ortiz

My husband and I were in need of some R & R one weekend so we chose to stay in Guanica because of the dry forest so we could hike and see the birds. We also like to be near the ocean and sailing. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised to find they had Hobie cats for rent. We rented one our first day to sail to an Island right off the resort beach. They also have a ferry boat that takes you to Gilligan’s island. We had dinner in their restaurant called Alexandra both nights and both meals were excellent. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable with a small fridge too. Staff were very helpful from the minute we checked in to the end of our stay. This place is very peaceful and i would recommend it for people of all ages and families with children. The grounds are so spacious that everyone can have a pleasant time. Of course if you’re a nature lover or a birder than it is especially nice to stay there perhaps in combination with a stay in the El Yunque rainforest.

Room Tip: We got an ocean view room om the second floor which had great views.

Stayed 9/11-12/2012 at the Copamarina. The hotel grounds are beautiful, nicely groomed and maintained. Our deluxe ocean view room was very nice with definite tropical charm and decor. The open air restaurant is very nice, although some items are overpriced. The Alexandra restaurant only opens Thu - Sun so we didn't try it. Alex and Tania at the water sports shop were very friendly and helpful. Alex was awesome providing a quickie lesson and great tips for my first kayaking venture to Gilligan's Island. The prices for the non-motorized water sports were very reasonable. Some may find the $7.00/person fee for the boat to Gilligan's Island high for the 5-minute ride, but I think it is well worth the money. If you stay at the Copamarina, you MUST go to Gilligan's; it's beautiful.

We ventured out of the hotel for breakfast and found Vera's Bakery in Guanica. The place caters to locals and is not fancy, but the prices are unreal. Breakfast special no. 1 is two eggs, ham, toast and coffee or chocolate for a whopping $2.95 + tax!!!

This hotel is absolutely beautiful and made for a perfect destination wedding. We did experience a lot of difficulty getting our marriage license since the hotel did not give us the proper information that we needed before traveling to PR. In the end it worked out and we had an amazing day. The staff was absolutely amazing - especially our bartenders Jaime and Stephanie! We had 22 of our family and friends with us and everyone had an amazing time. The food was amazing at the hotel and I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful wedding. We are looking forward to the time we can go back.

I went for my Birthday weekend with my family, this is my second stay here and let me say that this one was the best. We got the all American full plan and its a little expensive but its worth the money, the food is great, and you do not have to leave the resort for anything. ( I took some bottled water, softdrinks since they have a fridge and you don't spend extra money on that). The resort is very relaxing the pools are just perfect and the beach is not the prettiest but its ok. The only bad thing to say is that the front desk employees (not all Maria is very nice) need a customer satisfaction training rush... But the rest of the resort is great even the Manager walks around and makes sure everything is doing well.

I made reservations for our anniversary vacation to PR because a good friend recommended. Been away from PR and having stayed at rioMar, Dorado Beach, El conquistador and palmas del Mar, I have to say that copamarina is more cozy and has a great view from the room. the room was dissppointing- definitely needs a facelift, paint, rainshower, artwork-feels like a 90s hotel room. The beach was a disappointment BUT a trip to Gulligans Island made me feel in heaven! if you are staying for an adult vacation, dont go during weekends since it was packed by families-Im glad we got there Sumday night! Food was good and service friendly. Overall, it is a cozy and friendly hotel with great view!
