This is a "retro review" from several years ago, not meant to add to the negativity, but to clarify what type of place it is. We are NOT high maintenance travelers, and were looking so forward to being here for the week and in no way expected a hotel experience. However, when we got there, and were sent to our... More

This is not a current review, but one reflective of our experience a long time ago. My experience at Cabanas Cobal dates back 7 years. The cabana's were clean, well kept, and the sea view cabanas had marvelous views of the water, with sea breezes flowing through. The restaurant was open at that time, and we had some great breakfasts....Mexican... More

In the first place, the website does not have enough photos of the cabins, and the ones they have are from the one big cabin. So don't get too excited about your room if you are not staying in that one. My cabin, the king seaview, didn't have a door for the bathroom, so it wasn't the most romantic experience.... More

This was my first visit to Mexico and I'm glad I choose this hotel..the staff and the manager Roberts are very friendly and helpful and made me feel at home. The beach is nice and service good and they provided me with any possible tips about tours etc I needed to make my stay great. Definitely place to visit!

I have been to Copal three times over the past few years, thoroughly enjoying each stay. But my last visit, in January 2013, was disappointing. I had stayed at Copal and Zahra, which is just down the road and owned by the same parent company (EcoTulum), on each of three previous trips to Quintana Roo. My wife and I generally... More

“Azulik rooms offer better size and location than those of Copal (but on the same site. They offer Spa services which we didn't use this time but did last time and they were well priced and very professional.”

“You definitely want to select a Sea View room (not Partial Sea View) because you'll get a much better breeze coming in off the sea, which will make for a much more pleasant night's sleep.”

“The only copal room I would consider would be La Casitta - but you have a rusted chain link fence right next to your room and no beach access unless you go wandering around and down through Azulik's cabana's private access - which you disrupt the privacy of someone who "paid" to have a private entrance to the beach.”
