This small cozy hotel has one great thing going for it; the ambience. If you're looking for glitz, luxuries and superficial trappings, you might as well stay at the nearby all-inclusive, cookie-cutter resorts. Copacabana delivers bang for the buck by making guests feel at home. The clothing optional policy creates a laid-back and tolerant mood. It's right on the beach...

Having traveled to 23 counties over 40 years this was the most pleasurable experience I have had at a resort. I truly believe that those few who have written negative comments were perhaps expecting a 5 star resort. This is a 3 star resort and the best 3 star ever! I extended my to 25 days from my original two...

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.

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....
