The Barcelo Palacio has by far and away the best breakfast buffet in San Jose. The hotel location is nice and the location of the breakfast buffet is beautiful. They offer such a variety of food at the buffet. The fruits are exceptionally fresh along with all of the other offerings. You can have mimosa's as well. We could not... More

It is a little far from the everywhere. There is no place to walk near by. They have 3 restaurants and the only decent one is the Japanese. The others are not good. Variety of food is not good. Service is ok but nothing extraordinary. Internet is really bad.

Hotel staff was very friendly and professional, specially Andrey at the front desk. Rooms are comfortable and roomy. The buffet breakfast was not bad either. We booked an extra room for our newlywed daughter and they arranged it with champagne, strawberries and chocolate at no extra charge.

We really enjoyed our one night here. The rooms are comfortable and clean. We asked for a quiet room and a crib for our baby, everything was taken care of in advance. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We would stay here again.

Hotel is getting old. One room was ok but the second one was smelling smoke. We were given another room. Most services were closed (japonese restaurant, pool, piano, ...) and there were barely nobody in the hotel. The impression was not positive !!!

We stayed at the Barcelo the first few nights before our Caravan tour. We actually arrived a day early. The accommodations were great. Daniel Quiros took excellent care of us and we had a wonderful experience. Loved seeing the Toucan outside the Lobby. The groundskeepers, the service personnel and all the people we encountered were great. The Japanese restaurant was... More

We recently returned from a 10 night stay at the Palacio hotel. Beautiful, well-maintained venue. Staff was extremely friendly and did their best to accommodate our every request. The staff in the restaurant, especially Yorleny, Erika and Marcia were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was varied and absolutely delicious filled with many typical Costa Rica and Western cuisine... More
