The hotel is extremely well kept. Very clean rooms, comfortable beds, very large bathroom and shower. Pool is huge and great for kids. The free breakfast every morning is excellent. The staff, Roberto, Andrea, Hellen, Esther, and Roger were extremely nice and very accommodating. This was my 10th trip to Costa Rica and this hotel stay was by far one of the best.

We couldn't have asked for more during our stay: great services, beautiful hotel, very calm beach and a lot of nature among us. The food of the hotel was very good and they made sure everything was tailored to our taste!

I and my family recently returned from Costa Rica and a stay at Golden Palms. The hotel we had previously booked canceled our reservation due to renovations. I'm so glad they did. You walk through a maze of beautiful flowered hedges to your room. If you love wildlife as I do, you'll wake up to the sounds of howler monkeys and birds. Breakfast is included and couldn't be more delicious. The staff, Andrea, Helen and Ester are warm and friendly. You'll fall in love with the bartender, Roberto. We had four children with us,ages six to thirteen, and all of them had a happy time. The beach is a short walk away. The waters of the cove where the beach is located is calm with no undertow. Early morning walks on the beach are a must. If the pool is your choice, it's large and clean. There are plenty of chairs and you can have your drinks and snacks brought to you. There's also a variety of restaurants in the surrounding area in case you don't want to eat at the hotel restaurant. Golden Palms will definitely be my choice the next time I return to Costa Rica.

I did not visit this resort; however, I booked under their deposit return policy. Unfortunately, I had to can all our trip. I cancelled under the requirements for the return. It has been 2 months and I have still not received my deposit. So, be careful if you think you can receive a refund! I am resorting to leaving this review in hopes that someone will respond and refund me then I will be happy to leave a positive review.

This place is a delight!! Majid and the staff are warm, helpful, accommodating and created a fairytale experience. Relatively simple, this resort is perfect for people who want to experience Costa Rican charm. Accommodations are very clean, the Chef pays attn to detail and quality. The pool service was on COVID restriction but they found a way to make our stay amazing. We asked for help to make a simple elopement nice and they went way above our expectations. A setting that we designed with the staff, bon fire beach dinner, florist and hair stylist were all resourced in 24 hours. We will be back.
