It has been around for about 20 years and originally started with four palapa (thatched roofs) cabins. Now it is a 20 room hotel. The hotel is located right in the center of Playa Del Carmen on 5th Avenue near 12th Street.
The small entrance might fool you that there is actually a larger courtyard with garden behind the entrance. The hotel is older and the rooms and more basic but still offer a good value especially due to its location. Unlike other hotels in the area it does maintain a quieter interior and rather large rooms. The style is local and Mexican. It is not a designer hotel or been highly stylized and updated to keep up with the trends, it is just a good local hotel that offers more space in the center of Playa.
The hotel offers wifi in the garden area, a dip pool/jacuzzi with refreshing cenote water, a few bikes to use for free, and some rooms have a kitchenette.
This hotel might appeal to some snowbirds or people wanting longer stays because they do have monthly rates and with some rooms having a kitchenette, it makes it easier on the food budget.

Bookings can be made on many sites but according the manager you will always get the best rate on their website www.HotelCopa.com This is due to the fact that many booking sites take a 25% commission.
