We are one on one guest. So 6th floor, with VIP lounge. We are every week in Barcelo Guatemala and that hotel is much better in everything except the beds. It seems as if nobody here seems to be involved in her/his job. Don't see their work. Busy with themselves. We had to change room due to non working wc... More

This property is a top-notch facility in San Jose. It is clean, well-maintained, has a really nice outdoor pool and lounge area, and the food in the restaurants is excellent. The main drawback is the property is somewhat "isolated" and not within walking distance of restaurants or shops. However, it is a safe environment and the views of the soccer... More

We stayed one night at this beautiful hotel. Especially if you upgrade your stay, on the 6th floor they have beautiful rooms with private services. Hotel is very modern and formal. Surroundings are beautiful too. They advised us not to walk outside the hotel as it may not be very safe if you are a tourist.

We always return to Barcelo Palacio if we visit San Jose because there is no hotel in or next to the city with such a beautiful garden and a large pool. Most convincing was the exellent service we experienced during our stays: Yorleny Medrano prepares the best gallo pinto in town and satisfied our individual breakfast desires at all times.... More

I loved to stay in this hotel during my business trips is San Jose. It has a very beautiful garden with all those exotic centralameican plants and flowers, fantastic pool area, and good restaurants.

Lots of lovely photos of spa services in elevators and around the building so I booked an appointment for a mani and pedi at the beauty salon, massage spa.

Stayed at The Barcelo for 2 nights with my family. We were on a tour and didn't have a car so unfortunately we had to take a cab to get to the mall, the shopping center, or wherever.

A good hotel with spacious and clean rooms, large beds & good mattresses.What I liked was that the windows could be opened so you could have fresh air, although this would also allow the traffic noise from the highway in front of the hotel entering your room. Even with the windows closed it is a bit noisy. Get a room... More
