Residential Neighborhood, Trendy
NUMBER OF ROOMS
I stayed here with friends for a week, lovely hotel, nice rooms, friendly staff. It’s slightly up a hill so if you have accessibly issues it might not be one for you. 5 mins in a taxi or 15 mins walk into old town (Romantic Zone). I would stay again.
We stayed in room 242, in the orange pool building, right next to the clothing-optional pool. We had a large deck with ocean view. The pool closes at 7 so absolutely no noise to worry about. The bartenders at the pool, David and Andrés, were really nice and worked hard to keep everyone happy. Very easy to make new friends at the pool and hot tub. At the pool, we had grilled shrimp sandwiches that were yummy. Quick walk up and down to the beach, but the hill may be too steep for some people. I thought it was nice to get some exercise after dinner! Walked through the gym, but never got around to using it.
Comfortable hotel, with multiple pools. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My room was large, and included a small outdoor seating area. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was gigantic. The hotel is a five minute walk to the beach. Would definitely stay here again.
Room - superb, view magnificent, clothing optional pool/pool bar service- very nice, spa- 60 minute relax massage - top notch- all in all- wonderful backdrop of privacy from the congestion/frenzy of Zona romantica- will definitely return
I’m at 3.5 stars. Here's the deal... I stayed at Casa Cupula in 2016 and had a GREAT stay. The room was IMMACULATE. The hotel was great and felt more upscale/classier. The food was good and so was the restaurant service. That said, this recent stay was a totally different story. Here's the big summary: PROS: The employees are extremely pleasant. They are knowledgeable and helpful. Also, I do like the location, which is up the hill but away from central Romantic Zone. I love to go out at night but love to relax at the hotel too. CONS: First off, the room, which was located in the orange pool club building. It was outdated. The rugs beside the beds were basically big bathmats (no exaggeration). The room is in dire need of fresh paint, new curtains and décor. The curtain rods were rusted. The mattress needs to be changed as it was not comfortable and was probably old. Certainly, it was not a high-quality mattress. The overall décor was amateur, dark and dated. The bathroom was also outdated. Water from the shower would go under the walk-in door every time you shower. Hence, water everywhere every time you shower. What use to feel like a classy, upscale, boutique hotel now feels a little bit like a standard cruisy gay hotel. The hotel had parties (Bearadise) thrown at the pool club for 3 days from 1-9pm, which included “patio play areas”. Call me prude, I’m cool with that. However, it gave Casa Cupula more of a cheap hotel vibe than an upscale LGBT-friendly hotel. The restaurant food/service was not very good. I had a hard time communicating with the only waiter, who messed up an easy omelet order (omelet con queso y tomato) and completely forgot another item ordered. Service was also slow, even when I was the only person in the restaurant. The Sunday buffet is very poorly executed (warmers that didn’t keep food warm, aged/poor tasting food, etc.). You are much better off going to town for your meals. Overall, I feel like this place has turned into a typical cruisy gay hotel, and has moved away from a clean, modern, boutique hotel. Unfortunately, I doubt I’ll stay here again when there are so many other great places in PV. The prices do not justify what was once a high-quality, quaint hotel. Perhaps they have rested too much on their past reviews. Either way, it was disappointing.…
