HypersonicStavanger is right about the lack of circulation within the rooms. When we arrived, it did seem rather dank for comfort. However, you eventually get used to it. I appreciated the service at the front desk, if only it means that nice Costa Rican girl who could hold a conversation. She helped me with directions when I got an eye... More

This should not be called a hotel, rather a humid, dark, and stinking potato-cellar. The rooms really smell unhealthy fungus and the aircondition sounds like an airplane taking off. No fresh air! Since management mean that all rooms are allright, the faults will probably not be fixed in the nearest future......... We have been to Costa Rica two times, been... More

Like your friend was told already and at the time, contact your booking agency, we do not give cash refunds when you pay by credit card! 1.) Costa Rica is a tropical location and very hot and humid, especially by the Ocean. 2.) Guests requested a different room but we were full and told them we would change them in... More

A reservation must be cancelled before the deadline as indicated on the website. We will charge for the room after that period. We do not allow unregistered guests, escorts, or noise after 9:00...

Been to a lot of hotels during my lifetime, this one is the worse ever. First time I change hotel without getting any form of compensation from the hotel. We just decided to forget this after one night and ordered a new hotel for the next five days. REASON: We got two rooms on the ground floor without any natural... More

Costa Rica is a tropical location and very hot and humid, especially by the Ocean. Guests requested a different room but we were full and told them we would change them in a day or two to the second floor. Christmas and New Year’s period is peak season, booked solid months in advance. Jaco fills up on weekends and Holidays... More

The Blue Palm Hotel is located perfectly to anyone traveling with a car, it has AC, TV nice reception and a pool. No one to bug to but no need either, see wild Jaco a day or night and sleep at a safe close by place...

Stayed here for 3 nights in early July 2012. Other guests were correct about the energy saver (the electricity turns off until you enter the room again-so don't use the fridge). Pros: Ultra friendly and helpful staff (especially Susana!). Close to Jaco beach and all the restaurants/shops. A/C was a major perk since the heat index is high. Cons: In... More
