“Fun In The Sun Resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2012

This is a beautiful resort. The rooms were excellent and the beds very comfortable. The rooms were very clean and neat. We had a Microwave and fridge and didn't have to pay extra. We spent three nights and found the staff and cleaning crew to be very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was unbelieveable. You couldn't ask for more. We had a wonderful time at the hotel, beach and pool. We had a little patio we could walk out on and sit. The hotel looked very high end and expensive but we got a great deal. We drove 2300 miles round trip, but it was totally worth it. Looking forward to returning someday. We loved everything about it. Thank you for an incredible vacation!!

The facility was very nice and well kept, with the room being excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful and the manager missed her calling, she should have been as model. The breakfast was complete but the serving room was very poorly cooled and ventilated. Be prepared to walk a lot; the hotel is on a narrow sliver and is about a mile in depth.

We stayed at the LaCopa 4 nights the first week of May. We have stayed here before and found it very nice. First of all, I thought it was very clean. Our room was clean, bathroom was spotless and the halls and elevators clean. Someone seemed to be cleaning all the time. Our room wasn't cleaned until the afternoon which was fine with us. It allowed us to take our time in the mornings and not have housekeeping pounding on our door at 8am. The staff was very friendly and parking was not a problem. Breakfast was average and it is now served on the 4th floor in a really big room so seating was not a problem as there were lots of tables. And breakfast lasted until 10 am which is a plus. The Happy Hour gives you one free drink but the snacks that used to be free were gone. Use to have nachoes, chips and a few things to munch on with your drink but nothing now. I'm sure it's because it was abused. A large number of children were always in the pool so if you are thinking about floating in a relaxing pool, forget that. But the children were with parents and for the most part, well behaved...just that there were lots of them!. Overall, I will choose LaCopa again if I returned to Padre. I didn't see any other hotel that I wished I had tried. For the money, LaCopa was fine...no problems here.

I decided to spend Mother's Day weekend with my kids. The hotel looked decent, but then one thing after another was wrong. We entered the hallway and it was warm. The elevator, even warmer. The "black out" curtains were a disaster. If they blocked light, it wasn't our room's curtains. Harsh blaring light from the condos in the next building came around the edges of the curtains. The air conditioner kept blowing the curtains upward causing light to come in too. The sofa bed was so close to the a.c. that it was TOO cold to sleep on it. Even if the curtains blocked out light from the outside, there was plenty of illumination coming from the flat screen T.V., digital clock radio, fire alarm, etc. The air conditioner kept going on and off all night, and very loudly I may add. My daughter and I though another rain storm had begun, only to realize it was the air conditioner making the noise. The Tempur-Pedic foam mattresses gave us sore and aching backs two nights in a row (our arms and hands went numb from pinched nerves), which caused headaches as well. The water pressure from the shower was very low. The flat screen T.V.'s lowest volume was LOUD. Sorry neighbors. The pillows were plenty, but plenty worn down and not comfortable. I never could log on to WiFi. Breakfast was great, but would've been better if the milk for our kids had been fresh and not sour, and the dining area would've benefited from a cooler temperature instead of being warm like the hallways and elevators. The walls, floors, and ceilings must've been made of paper, 'cause we could hear every baby cry, footsteps walking around, and persons talking. Oh, by the way, one staff never smiled or said anything twice when we greeted her on two different days! What a nightmare! I was SO HAPPY TO BE HOME and sleeping in my "worn out mattress". I will definitely be more careful when I book a room next time.

Room Tip: Take your own mattress, pillows, ear plugs, and sleeping masks!

We were on top floor over looking the ocean...we did travelzoo voucher and up graded. Loved the waffles for breakfast in shape of Texas...Just what we needed, with a ocean to wake us up...a ramp to walk to the beach. No complain'ts...everyone friendly and for the money I think we got a really good deal.

Room Tip: Be sure you get ocean view, it isn't all that much more and view is so awesome to wake up to and...

We stayed at La Copa from May 6-8, and used the Travelzoo Voucher. So we spent a little more for the upgrade for an Ocean View. We were fortunate to receive an early check in at noon, instead of 3 pm. They offered the 4th floor, and wow it was incredible. The room was large and clean. The beds were comfortable and the windows let in alot of light. We were right outside the ice machine and around the corner from the elevator. Not too much noise was heard because of that. The location the hotel was at on the beach was perfection. It has been about 10 yr since I have been to South Padre, and man we had a blast. Very nice stay. Lobby folks were friendly.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less noise from the pool and best views!
