“Nearly perfect location for a honeymoon or anniversary vacation!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

The Copamarina provided an incredibly soothing respite for my wife and i during our 3-day stay. The location is absolutely gorgeous, and the resort is nearly perfect for couples looking to relax and escape the stresses of everyday "working" life. If you want to "get away from it all", this may be the ideal place for you as well.

Highlights:
• Lush setting w/meticulous grounds maintenance
• Beautiful flowers and trees throughout the compound
• Friendly staff and quality food
• Isolated, quiet, & safe setting
• Kayaking to Guilligan's island for a day trip full of adventure & natural beauty
• Al Fresco dining
• Casual atmospere
• Clean & comfortable room in Bulding 4 w/ocean view

Lowlights:
• Long 2-3 hour drive from San Juan
• Narrow, winding road leading to resort made my wife carsick ( to remedy this, i let her drive the curvy road when we left the resort)
• Food & Drinks are pricey
• cuisine choices are minimal (but tasty!) with only one restaurant (Las Palmas Cafe) open for all meals on all days)
• Sea grass in the ocean water surrounding the dock may be off-putting for some people looking for a "perfect" beach
• some rooms are not well insulated from "neighbor" noise

My wife and i both agreed that our next trip to Puerto Rico will include another stay at the Copamarina. If you're looking for an incredible place to relax in a nearly idyllic setting, this is the place to be!

Room tip:
Get the weekday special rate and request a 2nd floor room in Building 4 or 5.

Copamarina Resort is truly a serene slice of paradise, from the good beach with glassy quiet reef-protected waters to the warm free-form pools and excellent outdoor dining. Everything is geared towards laid-back relaxation. Not many nearby restaurant choices but the on-site ones are excellent and provide enough variability for a week's stay. Rooms are a bit worn, but quite clean and quiet.
The grounds are outstanding. Snorkeling the reef is average but a bit overpriced for what you get. A couple hour drive to the dry forest and nearby beaches is worth the minimal effort.

Copamarina is easier to get to than other Caribbean spots, and with the reasonable prices the resort is one of the one or two spots that we plan on visiting more than once!

Room Tip: Make sure to book a room with a mini fridge as they do not allow coolers.

Just returned after a prior visit 2 years ago. Thoroughly enjoyed the gorgeous grounds, relaxing pace, and friendly staff & look forward to a future stay.
Tips:
1. Be sure to ask about ordering off the menu from Alexandra, the larger restaurant, even if it is closed. It offers wider variety and true gourmet dining. Or simply ask the server if there are any other options. We did, and were rewarded with delicious red snapper!
2. If you will just travel to and from the airport, don't bother with a car rental. If you wish to explore the area, by all means rent a vehicle. There are numerous historic, art, beach, dining, and other opportunities within a reasonable driving distance.

My husband and I stayed here six years ago and we loved it. This month we visited for a second time with our four year old daughter. What an awesome vacation! The Copamarina is super kid-friendly. There are two kiddie pools -- one with a fountain -- and two larger pools. The water temperature in all the pools was just perfect. There are two hot tubs, also perfect temperature. The pools and grounds are impeccably maintained. The rooms are not super luxurious but are perfectly adequate and very clean. You aren't going to want to spend much time in your room here! Las Palmas Cafe, the outdoor cafe where we had breakfast three times and dinner three times, serves good, reasonably-priced food. We particularly enjoyed the whole fried snapper (the pizza, which we ordered the following evening, wasn't the best -- the crust was tortilla-like and not our favorite). One of our favorite things was that there is a small playground right next to the tables at Las Palmas so our daughter could play while we were waiting for our food, scarf down her food, then skip off for more sliding and climbing fun while my husband and I relaxed, chatted and enjoyed a second delicious cup of cafe con leche! The beach is a little grassy and therefore not really suitable for swimming, though there is a better public beach just a few minutes walk away. Taking the ferry to Gilligan's Island was something we enjoyed a lot on our first visit and it was just as beautiful as we remembered, with good snorkeling. We plan to return very soon!!

We enjoyed the peace and quiet of this nice resort after the hussle of San Juan. We booked a dive with Aqua Adventure through Rosa at the shop. They did an awesome job! Good dive equipment on a safe boat with Franklin and Anthony pointing out the wildlife below. Snorkeling the mangroves on Isla Gilligan is worth the trip either on the hotel ferry or rented kayaks. We only ate on the property once. Although very tasty, it was slow coming and expensive.

We've come once again to this resort and we will definitely be coming back! It's a peaceful and tranquil resort that's great for seniors and is also child-friendly (very different from San Juan). Overall, we had another wonderful experience. Just a few items to take note of: it's difficult to swim at the beach because there is still some seaweed that should be removed at the shore; there were lots of mosquitoes this year; and the breakfast service at Las Palmas was quite slow. We prefer the buffet; unfortunately, they only had that when it was busier. Quicker waiting service would be much appreciated. But as usual, all the resort staff was very friendly and welcoming.

Room Tip: Beautiful view on second floor

We have friends in PR, so have travelled extensively in the country. This resort is on a quiet seaside road, about 2 1/2 hours from San Juan. The resort is not large, but is well laid out and has all of the amenities that a large resort has. We didn't select the all inclusive option, but did eat at the restaurants on site, and were blown away at the quality of the food.

The service was fair - if you have travelled in PR, you'll be familiar with this. The rooms were great. They were large, and had either a balcony or a terrace. Each room had a fridge and a huge shower! One of the best parts was the fact that they had Aveda bath and hair products!

The pools and hot tubs are a great way to stay cool. The beach is not that great, but if you have a car, take a drive and explore local beaches - you won't be disappointed.

Our favourite part of Copamarina was it's direct access to Gilligan's Island!!! For $7US/person, Copamarina had a private shuttle (pontoon boat) to take you to Gilligan's Island. Gilligan's is a nature reserve in the middle of the bay. It has shallow warm water, and you swim through the mangrove to the open water. It is a fantastic experience, and you cannot travel to Guanica without going. We loved it so much, we went twice on the same week! Be prepared to take absolutely everything you'll need for the day. From food, to beverages, to chairs/towels etc. There are picnic shelter and grills - if it's a PR holiday, it will be packed, so book as soon as main reception opens. You can only book travel for the same day.

Enjoy your stay!
