Once again we had an amazing experience at the Copa! We arrived at the hotel a few hours before check in but the manager Katia was happy to check us in early. We were there for my fiances birthday and labor day weekend. All of the staff went above and beyond to help me surprise him with a cake and... More

Iwas very hard to rate this place. So i will tell you the aspects i love and hate. First of all I wish I would have taken some pictures of the room. It did not look like that room that they show on here at all. Someone said the rooms are small but to me it's regular hotel size rooms.... More

This is day eight of eight days at The Copacabana Desire Hotel (Copa) in Jaco, Costa Rica. I have been too busy doing nothing to write … doing nothing is good sometimes. I have stayed at Hilton’s, Hyatt’s, Marriott’s, even the Hollywood love nest at Santa Barbara Beach in California, and many other chain hotels at beaches and cities across... More

The hotel is shabby and in need of many repairs, especially in the common areas. Chipped and broken stair treads, ratty pool deck. There were very few guests. Just us and one single guy one whole day. Other days there were a few guests -- maybe four couples? -- but still very quiet and boring without others to party with.... More

The Copacabana advertises itself as an adults only establishment, with clothing optional portions of the pool area. It's right on the beach, which has its up and down sides. The hotel itself is a bit dated, though some rooms have been renovated. The bar and hotel itself were deserted when we visited, though the restaurant is apparently good. The most... More

I still go back to the Copacabana, but I no longer take my children. That is the most important difference to 8 years ago. I've gone another 10 or 12 times since then, but no children. Adults only works for me...an adult for sure. Food still good, staff still good. In fact, I had a serious health issue there...mine, not... More
