We've visited a Barcelo in Costa Rica 4 times.
STEVEN B.
Jul 17 2013
3 times in Playa Langosta, 1 in Tambor. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the beach is great, and the food is very good. The staff are very capable and friendly. The Barcelo definitely has a Costa Rican flavor that we really enjoy.

At arrival we were assign a room that had mold on the ceiling, the Swiss Travel Rep was nice enought to help us get another room. no mold, but not very clean. You also had to keep one of the 2 room cards you were given to keep light and ac attached to the monitor at all times. The food was the same every night, rice and beans and chorizos, pork, chicken or bad steak. The Wi fii that we paid for was turn off the 2nd day, and can only be used at one device at a time. We would ask for towels for the room, they never had clean towels available. The only good thing at this resort was the alcohol and fresh fruit at the bar.

We really loved it. With friendly staff, excellent food, very very clean, awesome mountain views, the beach was a stone throw from the hotel pool. We could sit at tables in the pool bar and look out at the ocean. Really lovely sunsets and postcard perfect views.

Barcelo at Langosta Beach Tamirindo

We really enjoyed our week at the Barcelo. We would return and recommend it to others. I believe the resort carries a 4 Star rating and that is probably accurate; however, we were completely satisfied with the amenities and food. We were not notified about our departure details as promised. We called on our own and obtained the information.

Good affordable alternative

This is my 2nd time staying at the Barcelo. This is a good affordable all-inclusive hotel. The buffet gets old after awhile but most buffets are average. We like this resort as it is close to town. Most of the other all inclusive resorts are far away.

Hotel was perfectly situated on the beach with an amazing sunset! Hotel staff was very friendly! Need more staff and the pool bar. Lobby bar is good but small. It is within walking distance from the town although it's very hot but a taxi ride is very cheap!

Beautiful location right on the beach. Extremely friendly staff that is responsive to every need. rooms are very clean and have all essentials. Food at the buffet is quite bland but quality is good. Ala Cart Restaurant very good! Quality of the alcohol is not good but we are not huge drinkers...you can get better quality alcohol for an extra charge. We had a couple issues with our air conditioner and had a light go out and the staff was very responsive. Wi-Fi is not good and is an extra charge. Overall, we would definitely go back though as the positives definitely outweigh the negatives.

We stayed for Christmas with our teenage daughters. Thoroughly enjoyed our walks on the beach. Beautiful setting. It was amazing being able to see iguanas and monkeys hang around the property. Food needs to improve.

If you do not speak Spanish, do not stay here.

Resort caters to Spanish speaking people. Virtually no one spoke English. Fine dining is a joke, you will go out hungry. variety of food and quality was above average, Bar had only one blender, so if you wanted a blender drink, your only option was a Pina' Colata.

Had a good time

Overall, we had a good time there. The food was pretty good for all inclusive. We loved the bartender, Edwin, and the restaurant staff. They were always friendly and hard working. The room smelled a little sour when we arrived but did improve every day. There was a squealing sound from the pool equipment near our room that was never fixed, even though we asked several times. We met some great friends while there. We will probably go back, in large part due to Edwin and the great staff. The location was nice next to a pretty deserted area where you could walk next to the beach.
