“The Best Place for Fishermen”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

I've fished Costa Rica several times and I've paid the same to fish four days in Costa Rica I fish seven at Palmas. It has best rooms, food, boats, skippers and overall fishing no matter what fish you're targeting. I haven't been back to Costa Rica since I went to Palmas over four years ago. On this last trip I caught more tuna (which I target) than I would have believed possible.

Room Tip: If quiet is what you want take a room on the north side of Tico's

The staff at Palmas did a great job making us welcome as the staff had before at Punta Colorada. This was my 7th trip to a Van Wormer Resort and my 1st to Palmas. Palmas was meant to be their upscale resort and they have done a very good job of making it so.
The food was very good, above my expectations.
The only down fall I see at Palmas is it makes for much longer runs for fishing in the mornings, A Punta Colorada you were on the fishing grounds in minutes.

We have only been going here for about 4 years now but this place is amazing. Not like Cabo. If you want to fight traffic and deal with havoc then stay in Cabo. If you want a nice clean, friendly,safe place to chill, fish,eat, swim " yes in the ocean " then this is your spot. We rarely leave the resort but if you do there are lots of nice little restaurants that won't brake the bank. My son walks around the pool and the beach and there is no fear of rip tides or aggressive vendors here.This is family owned and operated resort. We will be back in October for the Tuna Shoot Out.

Our friends got married at this hotel, and so of course we decided to stay there for about a week. It was an amazing experience. The rooms were clean and everything we needed, the pools were clean and nice. Many of our friends were staying there as well, so it was fun to meet up, go play on the beach, swim, and go walk around town. Breakfast was very good! Also the beach was perfect for kids to play in and learn to swim (one of our little friends had never swam in the ocean before and this was a perfect place for her to get that experience!). We snorkeled- pretty cool! I saw rays and many many beautiful fish. It is a different kind of snorkeling than at colorful reefs, but nevertheless amazing. I saw a ray and all sorts of cool creatures. Also, we bought a Hawaiian sling for spear fishing and had some great dinners from our catches!
We brought along our paddle board and everyone had a blast on it, our friends rented a couple seadoos and we towed our paddle board and had a blast! Altogether our hotel experience was amazing. Sunsets and sunrises are a MUST SEE! Beautiful! The wedding was also really fun!

Just up the road was a grocery store- stoked all we needed! The boys bagging the groceries deserve a tip (they dont get paid well) so remember to give them your change! And if you walked around town you could do a little local shopping, and have some of the best Mexican food you will ever eat. Guaranteed. They do not speak English everywhere, but some of us knew Spanish- at least the basics, so we were able to get by, it was really a fun adventure! The chocolate shop about 1/2 block from the hotel had some of the best chocolate I've tasted, and up the same street were taco stops with the best Mexican EVER. The pharmacy was okay, we got what we needed.

Have been down twice this year and a third trip is hopefully in the plans. Clean rooms with good air-conditioning. The food at the hotel is very good no reason to go off site if you dont have the urge to. This is a resort geared to fishing but you would not disappointed taking the family for the weekend.

We just spent 4 nights here and had a very good time. Our purpose was to go fishing and the hotel fleet captain was great. The boats and crews are well equipped and knowledgable. It was our 12 year old grandson first fishing trip and the crew was great.
The Bayside Restaurant is excellent. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The grounds and pools are fun for everyone. We will definitely go back.

Room Tip: Don't by the meal program.

Single word, EXCELLENT! Personalized service, excellent Captains and crew, great resort! I will definetly be returning! Much more fun and relaxing then going to hawaii! There they just want your money, not you. Mexico is the exact opposite! Polite, and friendly people. The only complaint we had was a lack of a hot shower. Yet with 90 degree temps it wasn't a big problem. The only other issue was the occasional drunk loud mouth American. The problem was usually solved after 8 hours in the sun fishing with a hangover. They never seemed able to drink the second day.Capt. Alberto and mate danial were top notch! 8 sail fish, stripe marlin, numerous dorado and rooster fish in 4 days of fishing. I couldn't ask for better.
