The Palms Puerto Jimenez Reviews
Best hotel in Puerto Jimenez Oct 02, 2009
I stayed at The Palms for 4 nigths in December 2008 - We really awanted to visit the Osa but couldn't afford the higher priced logges in Matalpo so we decided on The Palms.
After driving 10 hours straight from Mal Pais to Puerto Jimenez we were greated by Pablo who is the Chef at the hotel's kitchen - he got us a much better deal than what was quoted to me by previous emails with the owner and gave us some much needed beers after our long drive. He gave us a choice of two of the "Waterfront" rooms - we took the slightly larger of the two. The room was very nicely decorated with colorful bedspreads, comfortable mattresses and pillows, and hand painted walls in the bathroom. The room had REAL hot water (not a suicide shower), good a/c and also had cable TV with most of the channels exclusively in Spanish.
The restaurant and bar look out onto the Gulfo Dulce and the food was KILLER. Everything was made fresh and was sooo good we ate there every night! Unfortunately it was only open for a late lunch or dinner but the cook needs his time off! It was some of the best food I've had on 4 trips to Costa Rica!
We interacted with the owners as well as all of the staff - everybody was friendly and made us feel like part of the family.
