    Pretty nice

    Comfortable room, nice view. Would be nice to have a balcony but the windows don't even open. The bed was comfy and the room was clean and had a table & chairs and a sitting area so I liked that. The pizza and arroz we ordered from room service was not good, pizza was soggy! I didn't look at what restaurants they had. Also hot tub closes at 4pm on Sunday so that was a bummer. The free airport shuttle was great. I didn't get to eat breakfast so I don't know how that it.

    Great Time in Costa Rica

    The hotel rooms were nice and clean. Had an excellent view. The staff was very nice, polite, and professional. The breakfast buffet was a GREAT way to start the day. It would have been nice if there would have been a mini-refrigerator in the room. There seemed to be fairly few places to visit within walking distance.

    Worst Barcelo Experience

    The service at the different restaurants was bad, slow and poor attention, the food was not good either. In my opinion, it was the worst service in any Barcelo hotel I have ever been.

    Not secure

    The hotel doesn't have security service at the parking lot. We rented a car and the called us early in the morning to let us know that the cars window was broken, when my husband asked about the hotel security they said the security leaves at 11:00 pm. They never told us it wasn't a safe place to leave our car. They didn't become responsible for the damage and claimed that they had warned us but they didn't until the incident had already happened. Very disappointed!!!

    Fantastic Hotel

    After returning from a week up in the rainforest this place was pure luxury! It has marble flooring and counter tops, very clean rooms. The food was fantastic, we chose to eat in the buffet which was a little pricey at $28 but you could also order off of the menu where they had pasta, pizza, and sandwiches ranging from $6-$14. The pool was Beautiful!! and they had hammocks hanging around with the lounge chairs which added a lot of character. Would definitely stay here again.

    Great place to stay!

    Wish we would have had longer here! We only stayed one night before going to rain forest and wish we could have stayed longer. Pool area was gorgeous, breakfast buffet was amazing, room very clean and comfortable, staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Airport shuttle was free but hard to catch on arrival. Much better for departure.
