“Right on the Beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

We had the greatest week in Jaco staying at The Palms. The rooms were amazing and the view couldn't be beat. Right on the ocean, pool, air conditioning, sunsets, what more could a person want. We stayed in unit 601 and loved getting up in the morning to sit on the balcony to watch the waves crash in and see the beach at Jaco come alive. There's so much to do in Jaco, and The Palms is in a perfect spot, not right in the middle of everything, but close enough you could walk to pretty much everything. Security was great and we always felt safe and secure. If you get a chance to visit Jaco, you should consider staying at The Palms.

Room Tip: We loved unit 601. High enough off the ground to get an amazing view. Layout of the unit was great...

I have stayed at this property for three vacations and had a great experience each time. It is new, fresh, bright and very large (we stayed in the 2 and 3 bedroom units). The location is perfect, only a short walk/taxi to the heart of the town, and away from the hustle and bustle. They have guards front and back 24/7, so no worries about saftey. The sunsets should not be missed, as you have a completely unobstructed view each evening from your private balcony.
We've done a lot of adventures and all were amazing. 4-wheeling, horseback riding, zip-line, fishing, valcano, etc.

Great view and still able to walk to town. 24hour security was great and the sunsets were beautiful. We stayed in unit 901 and the surroundings were clean, comfortable, and afforded wonderful views of the ocean, beaches, and mountains. Jaco is a wonderful town full of activity and great food.

Room Tip: unit 901 was great.

The condo was very nice and clean with a nice porch right outside to watch the sunset. I liked the location because of its proximity to town as well as the different tours we participated in. I also felt very safe bacause of the 24 hour security.

The Palms has the absolute best view in Jaco. You can see the entire Jaco cove and can catch some amazing sunsets. The condos are right on the beach and great surf is less than 1/8 of a mile away. The Palms is close to town and all of the attractions. There is so much to do in Jaco - would definitely recommend the ATV tours through the jungle. Very memorable trip.
