I have travelled to over 40 countries and stayed in some pretty dire places. However, I have to say that this was one of the worst places I have ever stayed in. How bad was it? My friend and I let the hotel keep our $150 night's payment and went to stay at another hotel after several hours. The faults?... More

Actually came across this place on tripadvisor when I was looking for a lively beach hotel that I could stop into on my way up the Pacific coast.

I stayed at the Copacabana for a week recently and was thoroughly disappointed. The rooms are very small, and most of them face the pool bar, which plays loud music until at least midnight, so don't expect much sleep. The staff are mostly kind and the food excellent (and pricey), but I would not stay there again. It is also... More

We stayed here for a week. Pros are: location, service, adult only, and the 2 pool areas. Cons are: rooms, maintenance crew, and price. The price for domestic beer is 2000 colones or 4 dollars at the hotel. You can go to any bar around and get for 1000 colones or 2 dollars. We paid about 100 dollars a night... More

We thank you for your review and we thank you for your constructive criticism.
