My boyfriend and I stayed at the Barcelo July7th- it was so horrible, we checked out 1 day later. We were shocked when we checked in. The front desk was horrible. They had us wait for them to look up to talk to us each time. They did not offer to help us take our bags to our room or... More

Me & my boyfriend just got back from the Barcelo, and for the most part we loved it. (we're late 20's early 30's, but there was all ages there) As previously stated, the food gets tiresome after a few days, but going into town was absolutely lovely. Some days the buffet was better than others (seemed thurs and friday were... More

Having left the UK on the back of the latest two reviews on this site(both poor), I couldn't wait to get back to add some balance to the debate. On returning, I find my job has already been done by others. As previously pointed out, this is not Mexico 5*, but it isn't too far behind. I find a smile... More

After reading most of the reviews that people have left about this hotel, I was a little nervous about staying here. What I found was that the people who wrote them must have expected a 5 star hotel. This was a nice hotel! LOCATION: What we loved most about the hotel is that it's not on the main road of... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon May 6- May 13th, 2007 we had an amazing vacation. I read about this place for over a year all the reviews and learned the good and the bad from peoples reviews. I did find it very helpful and anyone I contacted from the reviews were super helpfull. This is Costa Rica not a... More

I'm going to go into some detail but here's the summary - don't stay at this property! We read the mixed reviews and thought that it couldn't be that bad. We found out that it was not only that bad....it was worse. While we loved Costa Rica in general, the hotel was just awful. Here are some of the problems... More

I was thinking to stay in Tamarindo area for 4 nights out of my 10 days trip but I was so glad I only stayed there for 2. If you are into surfing then beach area is great but other than that pacific side of costa rica is not about beaches. It's not a sun and fun type place. And... More

I have traveled all over the world, and I must say that this was the worst property I have ever visited! We took our family, a party of nine, plus had to friends who live in costa rica meet us there. When we arrived, our rooms were ready for us. we had 3 rooms for 7 nights and one for... More

Unfortunately I have to get it a terrible rating. On the plus side, the staff works very hard and is very accommodating, the buffets are quite good with the desserts even excellent. The reason I would give it a 1 star is because of the misrepresentation that there are beach activities included.(such as is the case in many resorts). The... More

The property was very nice. The pool was great and the hotel is right on the beach. The food on the other hand was below standard, it was not terrible but there was little selection and the quality was not that great. The rooms were nice but not very clean, it seems the maids just sweep everything behind the toilet... More
