We've visited a Barcelo in Costa Rica 4 times.
Jul 17 2013
3 times in Playa Langosta, 1 in Tambor. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the beach is great, and the food is very good. The staff are very capable and friendly. The Barcelo definitely has a Costa Rican flavor that we really enjoy.

Barcelo Playa Langosta Costa Rica
Jul 02 2012
At arrival we were assign a room that had mold on the ceiling, the Swiss Travel Rep was nice enought to help us get another room. no mold, but not very clean. You also had to keep one of the 2 room cards you were given to keep light and ac attached to the monitor at all times. The food was the same every night, rice and beans and chorizos, pork, chicken or bad steak. The Wi fii that we paid for was turn off the 2nd day, and can only be used at one device at a time. We would ask for towels for the room, they never had clean towels available. The only good thing at this resort was the alcohol and fresh fruit at the bar.

We really loved it. With friendly staff, excellent food, very very clean, awesome mountain views, the beach was a stone throw from the hotel pool. We could sit at tables in the pool bar and look out at the ocean. Really lovely sunsets and postcard perfect views.

Barcelo at Langosta Beach Tamirindo
Aug 03 2011
We really enjoyed our week at the Barcelo. We would return and recommend it to others. I believe the resort carries a 4 Star rating and that is probably accurate; however, we were completely satisfied with the amenities and food. We were not notified about our departure details as promised. We called on our own and obtained the information.

Good affordable alternative
Jun 02 2011
This is my 2nd time staying at the Barcelo. This is a good affordable all-inclusive hotel. The buffet gets old after awhile but most buffets are average. We like this resort as it is close to town. Most of the other all inclusive resorts are far away.

Extremely welcoming friendly and helpful staff. If you have children, the kids club is available all day long with activities in the shade if sunny. The evening entertainment for children and adults is highly professional and engaging. My 7 year daughter cried when we left, she is still missing the evening shows and the nice people there. The rooms are spotless clean and, if you love coffee, an espresso machine with excellent coffee is available in the rooms and replenished daily. I promise you won't starve! Excellent quality food of any sort is available all day, with tasty snacks in-between meals. You can enjoy the sunbeds and the activities round the pool, or pop out to the lovely beach, watch the surfers, have a splash and watch the stunning sunsets. The hotel offers trips to various locations at competitive prices. We got a deal with Expedia including the flights from the UK and the holiday was worth every single penny!:) It won't disappoint you! Elena

Wonderful hotel in every way

The hotel had a lot to offer, the food and facilities were excellent and there was even an a la carte restaurant which was free to use. The hotel had a big pool and was right on the beach. The live dancing every night was of a professional standard and the rooms were in very pretty surroundings. What I loved the most by far was the fantastic warm and welcoming attitude of the Costa Rican staff. They are friendlier than anywhere else I have ever stayed and love children. I was truly sad to leave this wonderful hotel and country and will definitely return.

A fantastic hotel in a great setting with very friendly staff

Just arrived home from a two week stay with the family and kids. This is a fantastic hotel. The food is really good with lots of variety to suit any taste with different themes each night such as Mexican, Italian, Chinese etc. In addition there is an open flame grill which does great BBQ style steaks etc. About 8 different types of fresh juices to choose from and in addition for every three or four night stay you can eat in the a la carte restaurant which is really good. The pool area is really nice and the pool bar serves every type of drink that you could want plus fresh tropical fruit, pizza, french fries etc etc. You literally walk from the pool area straight onto the beach - perfect. The hotel staff are amazing and very friendly/helpful. The evening shows are a real stand out with professional standard dancers/performers. Our 7 year old daughter was spell bound every night! Our room was absolutely fine - nice walk in power shower, air con, huge flat screen TV and comfortable mattresses. Please pass on our thanks to all of the staff that made our trip so special, especially the dancers/performers - they are a real asset and extremely talented.

Horrible Hotel

Arrived at Hotel on Wednesday 8, when entered the rooms, the pestilence was schocking, everything was humid, with a terrible musty smell, my daughters room was full of mould under the vanity and the matress was BLACK!! Yes black of mold. Of course we went to the reception and complained, they changed our rooms. This time even they had better conditions, the musty smell was there too. Old furniture, dirty bathroom. The service at the restaurant sucks, they don’t serve water unless you ask for, and when you do, most of the time you have to get up and get it yourself because they forget or take very long. Poor food variety and poorly cooked. The pool deck is filthy, never been pressure cleaned, is all dirty, the drinks at the bar very bad. Don’t waste your money going here, and for the tour operators, never ever recommend this Hotel to your clients. Very dissapointing!!
