They need to put some money back in their business: everything need fixing or renewal. Location is good, few minutes walking from downtown, restaurants, the pier or the airport. Rates are low, but for few bucks more you can get a much better deal.

This is a motel style establishment with an attached restaurant run as as a separate business. There is a newer addition facing the lagoon across a road. Both the older and newer rooms have A/C and hot water. The newer ones seemed slightly larger with 2 double beds and TV's. We stayed in one of the older rooms because it... More

First of all: The Lonely Planet review of the place is a bad joke. We paid 45$ for a "Ocean View" room - the ocean is an almost dried up laguna during low tide (stil inappropriate for swimming during high tide). And there is an unpaved road literally right in front of the room, on which cars, trucks, motorcycles and... More

This hotel has obviously gone downhill since some of the reviews were written. The room we had was damp & ceilings full of black mold. The "suicide shower" did not work and the a/c worked, but only just, and was very noisy (like having a go-kart in the room. One light not working and faucet coming out of the sink.... More

We stayed at the Palms for a night before going to Corcovado and ended up staying for 3 nights more after our return. The people are very friendly and the prices are a great value for what you get (A/C and hot water plus real mattresses- what a treat after three days of hiking!) The outside isn't very impressive, but... More

The people working at the hotel were very nice and caring.. Some of the rooms are better than others but the people working there will take care of you. Also, they will help you get around Costa Rica and will set you up with people who will give you a real adventure if you are looking for one.

It was almost the end of our trip through Costa Rica and so we decided to spend a little bit more money to get a nice room (most of the time we spent under $30 for the room). Because the Palms Hotel got a good review in Lonely Planet we went there and they were very friendly. The rooms looked... More
