Service is awful. The hotel is dated and internet connection is lousy (especially when you need while on a business trip). Food at the hotel was served cold, and it was overpriced. There are more charming places to stay at in such a beautiful country. Do yourself a favor and avoid this place and explore other options.

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 !!!
