i usually stay at los suenos however although one of the most elegant marriott resorts the beach is terrible. Los suenos beach is black sand and very fine. How do think that feels after 11am and also the water is colored like tea from the sand churning The palms is next to the newly opened crocs hotel and casino. As... More

Had a great 6 days in Jaco with friends at the Palms. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The condo was very clean and had everything that was needed. We often had at least one meal a day in the condo. We were a little disappointed the larger pool was under construction as part of the Croc's Casino expansion.... More

The condo is VERY nice – clean, spacious, nicely decorated, and has a huge balcony with a beautiful view of the beach.

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
