We stayed here for five nights in mid June 2014 and had a wonderful time. The grounds are lovely and well maintained and the staff was friendly and welcoming. My two children loved the pool and beach and there was always something to do. This was our first "all inclusive" experience, so I am not sure how it compares to other resorts in this category, but we were overall pleased with the food and amenities. My husband and I had already realized that Costa Ricans are not "foodies", all of the food we had everywhere we went was good, but not amazing. Of course, Costa Rica has so much else to offer, I can see why they are not foodies. The food at the snack bar was sometimes overcooked, but it was nice to have it there for when the kids really needed a snack or drink. The stocked fridge was also nice, but I was hoping for more variety. We got 2 waters, one coke and one ginger ale each day.
We stayed at another Hotel in the Jaco area (Punta Leona) before coming to the Barcelo Langosta, and we enjoyed this Hotel more due to more spacious rooms and overall accessibility to activities and entertainment.
We also had the pleasure of being at the resort during the World Cup and the atmosphere at the hotel during the games was so fun. The games were put up on a large screen in the Snack bar and it was just a huge fun party. So much fun.
The town of Tamarindo is also very close and can be walked to if needed. Lots of shops and placed to eat as well as fun public beach. My only complaint about Tamarindo is the street vendors can be a bit too aggressive. We never felt unsafe, just annoyed when one vendor followed us around for an akward amount of time and another tried to charge us for parking in a parking spot labeled "free parking".
Overall a very nice stay.
