Reviewed 8 January 2007

Stayed in this hotel over Christmas 2006. Most to report is good. The location is excellent, two blocks from the sea in a relatively safe area with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants. The staff are excellent as are the buffet breakfasts and general facilities. The pool area with bar and cafe, although small is well maintained and pleasant.
The major downside is many of the rooms are rather small, dark, and overlooked. This does have the benefit that they are dark and quiet at night and you get a good nights sleep. It was possible to upgrade to a slightly larger front of the hotel room with more light privacy and unfortunatley noise. These rooms cost an additional $29 per night.
I don't go on holiday to stay in my bedroom so overall this hotel is acceptable and good value.

Reviewed 26 November 2006

Stayed at the Copacabana for 5 days in November 2006. Staff are helpful and the location is great. Many buses are close by and you can walk to restaurants in the area. The breakfast buffet is large and presented very nicely. Our room was quite small and dark and dreary; it faced an apartment complex and we had to keep the curtains closed. We would not stay there again because of that.

There is a free shuttle service to the airport but we were left at the wrong terminal by the driver and had to get ourselves and all our luggage to the other terminal. Maybe it was his first day on the job and he didn't know the terminals very well.

  • Liked — bathroom and amenities in the bathroom
  • Disliked — dark and dreary

Reviewed 15 November 2006

Stayed 4 nights on business. Very busy lobby, lots of large tour buses, etc.

Negatives:

- room was very small (1 king bed just about filled the room, tiny work desk that also held the 20" TV, shower only quite small)

- beds are very, very firm, to the point of discomfort

- noisy, with thin walls and wood floors, with noise from hallway when late nite partiers arrive home (and I usually sleep like a rock in hotels).

- interior rooms have no view and no light (windows are small and face other rooms so curtains stay closed.

- about a block off the beach on a busy side street. next side street over is pretty seedy, but that goes for a lot of the Copa area at night

Positives:

- clean rooms, though a bit tired-looking

- free hispeed (wired) internet

- water pressure was great and lots of hot water

- service was very good

  • Liked — free internet and breakfast buffet
  • Disliked — hard, hard beds in small rooms
  • Tips/Secrets — this is a block from the beach, so be prepared to walk
