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... More

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:... More

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

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.
