We've visited a Barcelo in Costa Rica 4 times.
STEVEN B.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Stayed two nights in December. Location is good. A short drive to the center of town. Nice beach area. Pool is nice and clean. Pool bar staff are very friendly and work hard to keep up with demand. Food was average. We chose to eat off site for two meals. All of the staff we encountered were outstanding. Room was average.

Decent All Inclusive Resort

We arrived on a Thursday which was very quite and relaxing. Then came Friday and a lot of people!! Nevertheless the restaurant was well managed - no lack of food or drinks and wait for seats was not bad. It is a bit far from the town (and shopping) but a taxi is only US$5 one way. It is right on a west facing beach and we had beautiful sunsets. Wifi is not stable - no signal at all in our rooms! The show on our first night became bingo instead. The second show was a variety game show in Spanish so we had no idea what's going on!

Ok

Room was beautiful and spotless. We had oceanview with the sound of the waves putting us to sleep at night. Bartenders were super friendly and kept us well hydrated ;). There were always plenty of chairs at the pool and beach. Lots of shade from trees but no palapas. House band was fantastic. $5 cab ride into Tamarindo which was great because the food was horrible so we had to go in to town to eat when we got tired of fruit and veggies. Fish at the beach bar was good and soup was usually delicious. We only got one seating at the a la carte because it was closed 2 nights but the night we ate there the food was great. Buffet food made Cuba look like 5* dining. Service in the buffet was terrible until they learned we are tippers (3-4 days). Lots of other places to choose from in the area. Not worth what you pay for all inclusive here. Would likely not return.

Good value for the money, especially with all inclusive. Food was average. Facilities were clean. Great beach. Internet needs improvement in rooms and away from common areas. Spa was wonderful. Staff is friendly enough.

Great location, service, and food for a fair price

Pleasantly surprised with our stay at Occidental Tamarindo. We paid for the all-inclusive which included 3 meals and snacks from the pool bar. The food was good, lots of variety and the fruit was amazing! Our room was spacious and very clean with an amazing balcony & good quality wifi. Pool, beach and entertainment at night (there was amphitheater with live dance) was a nice touch. We also rented a car, which was parked in a safe, guarded lot 24/7. The hotel is exactly 1.5km (1 mile) from the town of Tamarindo. Would 100% recommend this hotel for a couple, or family.
