We wanted a quiet place where we could sit on the beach, gaze at the sea and get some sunshine on our pale, northern bodies. This was just right! The Copamarina has comfortable, clean rooms; a friendly, accomodating, laid-back staff; gorgeous landscaping and pools; and a nice, quiet beach. The dinners at Alexandra's were delicious, too. We had not expected much after reading other reviews, and were pleasantly surprised! Dinners were no more expensive than dining here, and by stressing that we wanted our meat "very rare" it was perfect.
The beach does have grass in the water, and the bottom is a bit squishy in places, but it's not off-putting or unpleasant. Do get to the beach early to get one of the big beds, they're very cool, make you feel like royalty. We should have gone with the all-inclusive plan, since we never wanted to leave! We did take a trip up to Areciebo and took a "scenic route" instead of Highway 10; took all day but we saw beautiful countryside and many small villages.
Weekends are very busy, lots of families & kids, so if kids bother you, choose somewhere else. But if you want a relaxing, sunshine-filled, lazy vacation at a reasonable price, the Copa is the place - we plan on returning!
