“excellent service in the restuarant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

My husband and I received excellent service in the restuarant from Yorleny Medrano, Marcia Salinas,Ericka Salinas and Esteban Alvarable. They service with a smile and made us feel right at home. I would go back again and again. This was our third stay at this hotel.

Beautiful gardens and pool area. Love the poolside hammocks. Rooms were very nice, clean and comfortable. Very nice buffet breakfast. Many flowers and birds in the gardens. We were lucky enough to see a Toucan in the pool area.

We spent just over a month in Costa Rica and decided to end our trip here because of the breakfast and shuttle ride to the airport which are included in the price.
My husband and I were traveling with our three girls, all under 10 years old. Finding a hotel room that can accommodate us all can be tricky! The Barceló had an awesome room that was just under 1000 sq feet with two bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, 3 TV's, a desk w/printer, and two loveseats. What more could we ask for?
We went with the Premium room (totally worth it!) and unlimited wine, beer, coffee/espresso, snacks, breakfast, and airport shuttle were included.
The ONLY reason this hotel didn't get a 5 star rating from me was because I had to ask 3 times over a 4 hour period to get a 5th robe. That's a little annoying.
Our rooms were very clean and the beds were amazing!
The pool is absolutely beautiful, but as others have said...cold.

We stayed at this hotel as part of a Caravan tour so I can't comment regarding cost. The hotel had king or twin queen beds, wonderful native hard wood furniture, a great bathroom, and a large private patio. The air conditioner was quite and very effective. The bed was wonderful.

We ate in the buffet which served at dinner 35-40 items including a selection of 6 fish, beef and chicken dishes, 8 assorted salads and 12 make your own salad fixings, 8-10 deserts, and coffee, tea, and milk. I am not sure about beer and wine. The food was displayed artfully with hot foods hot and cold foods cold.

The public areas were spacious, elegantly furnished, and quite pleasant. I found the staff helpful and attentive. This hotel had none of the city hassles such as honking horns, drivers with a death wish, bright lights, and shiny glitz. If you want that, look somewhere else.

I look forward to staying here again.

Great hotel. I would stay there again. We were not fortunate to hear the piano in the lobby being played. The wifi worked, and the landscaping was beautiful. Nice nature walk. Just a tip-do not exchange money at the US airport as there is a charge. The Costa Rica airport does not charge a fee. Most everywhere I went (on tour) accepted US dollars.

A lovely place. Good food; not much of a selection. it rained all the time so we couldn't use the pool. The grounds are beautiful and I highly recommend the snack bar at the poolside. Order from the appetizers.

I've stayed at nicer Barcelo properties but this was ok. Room was clean and comfortable with good air conditioner
Buffet food was good! The omelet lady was slow but made the best omelet we had in all CR.
WIFI was good and consistent throughout.
We especially enjoyed the piano player in the lobby before dinner, he was terrific.
