For our winter getaways, we have always stayed in privately owned properties. Being at an all inclusive is seductively simple. The four of us got a great price on an air/hotel package. The TAM repsentative met us at the airport with an a/c bus and after about a hour ride we were at the Barcelo. Check in went smoothly. Two... More

The hotel is constructing an extension, they are clearing the site so this problem will be ongoing for some time. Our room was 625 and the 700's would also be affected. The digger noise starts at 6.30am and continues to 5.30pm Monday to Saturday. You can hear it in the room with the doors closed and it is impossible to... More

We were here in Jan of 07 for a week. We chose it based on previous experiences at other Barcelos. It appears to be an older property and it shows. We were in building 4 and the door frame to our room was warped requiring major pushing and pulling to get the door open and closed. Once closed, there was... More

This place was paradise..Not the Barcelo of course, but the beach, ocean and landscape. Somehow I think I missed Tamarindos best years by perhaps 15 years. Yes the sun still gloriously sets into the raging Pacific quite faithfully every evening, providing sunstarved new milenium pilgrims with splendorous full spectrum spirit lifting sunsets. The monkeys howl , the coatis scavenge and... More

First and foremost - service is not a word they know at this resort. During our stay the front desk failed to acknowledge us and even ignored people standing in front of them. Our maid was MIA most of the trip. When we asked for something such as an alarm clock to replace the broken one our request was ignored.... More

My husband and I just returned from Costa Rica (Nov20-27)and we stayed at the Barcelo Langosta and couldn't have asked for a nicer hotel. The service was excellent and the staff were top notch. The rooms were very clean and quite nice. We had a ground floor room, close to the pool and the buffet restaurant and it was kept... More

I stayed at Barcelo Langosta Beach the week of Thanksgiving in 2006 with five other adults. As is the case with most borderline-third-world tropical settings, the advertised “four stars” is really about a two-star equivalent by typical U.S. standards. Rooms were of a good size, though somewhat dingy, with ample closet, shelf, and drawer space. You might want to consider... More

We just returned on November 20th,2006. This hotel is as advertised. Nice-not fancy.The staff is extremely friendly from check-in to check out. They tried to make any problems right quickly with a smile. The rooms were nice-again - not fancy. I would recommend getting as far away from the main building if you like to sleep early to avoid the... More

We stayed at Barcelo for 3 days/4 nights during our honeymoon in Costa Rica. We were very disappointed. When we arrived, there was no bellman, just a security guard who looked boredly at us and did not offer to open our car doors or assist with luggage. After checking in, we had to drive our car to a distant parking... More

I took my wife and children to this beautiful place the last week of August 2006 along with a group of my children’s school. The hotel is moderate and comfortable, with good service. Ask for Willy at the restaurant, he is very nice and helpful. The beach is a little rocky so I would just recommend it for experienced surfers.... More
