Having read the two terrible reviews for Hotel La Palmera here on Tripadvisor (they were posted on two consecutive days so they may have been written by the same person...), I felt like I needed to comment on our experience there:
- The hotel is not in the center of Jaco, but a 15min walk will bring you there (which may even be a plus, see below)
- The room was basic, but absoulutely sufficient (and reasonably clean) and had a TV, AC (plus a suicide shower, if I remember it right... :-) )
- The staff was friendly: Although we were the only guests at the time, they prepared a small breakfast buffet for the two of us and brought us a lamp in the evening when there was a power failure
- Wireless Internet was free to use in the reception area, but not available in our room
However, there is one thing which will not make us come back: The (at least to us) uninteresting town and dirty beach of Jaco itself, but that is of course not under the influence of this quite nice hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
