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.

I really love this hotel because it has a lot of vegetation, it makes more fresh the environment. The staff is so kind, all of them knows the information of the hotel. When I walked around the installations all the workers said good morning how are you, good afternoon, they were soo respectful.

GREAT place Friendly staff.. we will be back

We stayed at the Occidental Nov 13th to the 20th and everything was great, There were six of us and check in was fast and easy. Our room was 9322 not far from the pool area, It was a little small but it was clean, A/C worked well and being close to the pool area it wasn't noisy at all. We are not in our room much during the day so we don't expect much as far as the room goes. The bed was comfortable and room was clean.. The buffet is good with a good variety of food, Alexander at the egg and omelet grill was awesome with all the guests. I was disappointed when he wasn't at the grill one morning ..he made the best omelets.. Gracias Alexander! The grounds are well maintained and clean. The beach is nice although not a great place to snorkel as the waves are big and there is a lot of rock. If you do cross the estuary read the tide times as we had to swim back and it is well over your head.The walk into Tamarindo is nice but the front desk will call you a cab and it only costs $5 one way. I would recommend this hotel to my friends and family and I would return. My only Complaint is the WIFI is only available in the lobby and around the pool area.. and is $5 a day to use. This is the only place I have ever gone in the last few years that didn't have free wifi in the rooms. Other then that.. Great place

Just like home

My husband, our son and I travelled to Occidental Tamarindo. As always, we were welcomed by friendly staff and felt like at home. The hotel was renovated and the needed improvements (bathrooms, pool, grounds) are great. The hotel is blessed by its location in the quiet Playa Langosta and directly on the beach. Although the waves are strong, the estuary offers options for stand up paddling, kayaking and playing with kids. The tide pools of the low tide are appreciated by the little one. Perhaps the most important, the animation is lively and diverse. The team is friendly and attentive. We strongly recommend this hotel for families.

Nice staff, smaller Barcelo property, great town!

Maria at front desk was terrific at check in which was easy and flawless. Marianela in the spa gave the best massage. English is spoken pretty well but not a lot of Americans were there, which was nice. Beach is sand and rock but my kids totally boogie boarded and surfed no problem with boards we had to rent in town. There are better place to surf in town but it is doable here if you a good swimmer. (would recommend Kirk as a surf instructor at Banana Surf School) If you are used to a larger Barceló property like the Dominican or Mexico then this will be a let down. But for a small town like Tamirindo it is fine. 25 minute safe walk to town or $5 cab ride. Cons.... no wifi in rooms. No view of ocean from any room that I could see. Food is average at best except fruit and omelet stand are terrific. Not sure why you only have tennis at Noon at 2 available when it's so hot there. No place to rent a boogie board or surf board or tennis stuff. Needed to mail a package to a CR address and front staff could not help me or tell me how I could do a simple thing like mail a book to someone in CR. Staff was very nice and helpful, minus not knowing how to get something mailed. Although staff at pool bar don't seem happy at all. Can't get a chocolate milk shake at the bar like you can at all other Barceló properties that we have been to. Ceiling fans were never on in lounge area which was super hot without the fans going. Good value for what you get but could be a great value with some small changes.

Location...outstanding beach and pool experience! Food and fun extrordinaire! Comfy beds and rooms. Wish they had first club services but ok without. Not very responsive to requests and housekeeping needs better English and responsiveness.
