My husband and I stayed in Condo 603 at Daystar the Palms for 3 nights in April 2014. The condo is VERY nice – clean, spacious, nicely decorated, and has a huge balcony with a beautiful view of the beach. The condo has a washer/dryer and a dishwasher, and the kitchen is stocked with all the necessary dishes, utensils, Tupperware,... More

We stayed two nights in the middle of the week and it was great because we had both pools just for ourselves, the apartment is in front of the beach, there was very few people at the beach and the building was just for us. The apartment is very clean and nice, the building has two elevators. It has a... More

We stayed in room 701 at the Palms for 4 weeks. The view from the terrace was exquisite. However, the outdoor chairs were uncomfortable which limited the amount of time we could sit out and enjoy the view. The swimming pool was very nice. The apartments are individually owned, so some must be nicer than others. Our apartment was in... More

The property is modern, clean and nicely decorated. The pool was small but access to next door pool was a bonus since it was much bigger/ nicer. Closeness to beach was excellent. The surrounding neighborhood very sketchy so not an area to walk safely at night. Security on duty helps. Parking VERY limited which was a problem. The biggest downside... More

Just spent 2 weeks at the Palms in jaco beach and had a great time. The Daystar people are awesome and the condos were fabulous. We were on the 7th floor and had a wonderful view that we are really missing right now. The room was well equipped to cook and so spacious. We had a few minor things wrong... More

My wife and I stayed at this property for two weeks in early February. The condo as described my others is first class with a spectacular view of Jaco bay from the terrace. Of minor annoyance was the sliding glass door between the living quarters and terrace that is difficult to open and close, and the condo could use a... More

My husband & I recently spent a month at The Palms in Penthouse 1001. We enjoyed every minute of it! Each beautiful sunset was better than the next! We would especially like to thank Lupe at Daystar for organizing all our airport shuttles & day trips, Eric, the security guard, who greeted us with a smile every day, and Ingrid,... More

What a lovely experience we had at Daystar Palms. Actually, it was the first time ever my husband and I managed to get such a large, well appointed condominium rental directly on the ocean at the far end of Jaco beach -- beautiful peace and quiet during the day. A short beach walk to a lively and exciting town including... More

My wife and I stayed at The Palms for 5 days at the end of January, 2013. Jaco is a great place to stay, especially during the week. Gets much more crowded on the weekends as the "locals" from inland Costa Rica come to enjoy the beach. Even with the crowds on the weekend, The Palms remains a quiet, peaceful... More
