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... More

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... More

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... More

My first thought as I pulled up in a cab was "this place is nowhere near the beach". The lobby was hot and unkempt ( not a big deal since that's not my room) but it was a harbinger of things to come. The room was adequate, but the beds were very uncomfortable, and the AC would go out every... More

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... More

The staff was amazing and very accommodating to our needs. They let us use their own personal phone to make a really long call. We needed a change and they were right there and helped us out. Amazing people. Very knowledgeable about the area as well.

After you read this please do not even think about going to this hotel or hostile whatever you want to call it. We arrived here on Christmas Eve 2015 this was the worst experience ever. When we looked at the place compared to whats online and what's next door to the property it would surprise you that the picture that... More
