For all the wrong reasons, I was forced to stay in this hotel for an extended period. But I couldn't have done much better. It advertises itself as the best bargain in Jaco, and it certainly seems to be. It is relatively small, located immediately adjacent to a "luxury" condominium hotel on a side street, about 8 blocks from the...

The Palm was exactly what we were looking for; a decent place away from the crowds at a reasonable price. About a 5 minute walk from the Main Street, the Palm is a 2 story motel tucked behind the massive Oceano hotel. It seems to have been remodeled lately as the room was in good shape. Clean linens and nice...

We stayed at the Blue Palm Hotel and found it exactly as described. The photos are spot on. Really friendly and helpful staff. The mattress could have been a little harder but hey, we all like something different. Otherwise brilliant. Thanks guys. A really comfortable stay and hope to see you again.

Stayed here for several days while getting some dental work done nearby. This is a great deal and a most pleasant place, I think we payed around 15000/nite for the two of us. . The new owners are mostly on site and are really doing a lot of upgrades to the place. Apparently, it had fallen into a bit of...

Don't go to Jaco. It's a dud of a beach town. But if you must, DO NOT STAY AT THE BLUE PALM. I'm a low budget traveler, let's clear that up now. High end hotels with fancy amenities don't impress me. Having said that, the Blue Palm was a disaster from the beginning. It's location? A mile from the beach:...

We needed a place to rest during the day and we stayed here for a day because we were doing night tours. The staff was really helpful and our room was really clean and nice! The AC worked fine but it made a mess outside our door because it dripped too much water! And there was a small fridge, it...

Stayed here twice, rooms downstairs are a bit small, but the rooms upstairs are very big with queen size beds. Staff was always very nice and someone is always there 24 hours. Like a 5-8 minute walk to the center. Liquor store is next to the hotel, pool is nice, I always seen kids in there. I would recommend this...

This was not the most romantic hotel or room but the price was very good. This hotel is perfect for backpackers or people who come strictly for tours and staying out of the hotel. Great spot if you're on a budget end it is really close to the main street and beach.

It had been about 5 years since I last stayed at the Blue Palm Hotel, but in the past always had a decent experience. So I was a little concerned with some of the reviews I read, but thought I'd still give it a shot. I am sure glad I did! It seems some of the bad reviews were not...

We just visited this hotel because we were looking for a budget hotel at the last minute, so we had few options. It turns out it wasn't bad. Working A/C, hot water, decent beds and room cleanliness, parking, and wifi. There is also a pool, but we never used it. If you're looking for a cheap place to stay, it's...
