My girlfriend and I stayed at the Barcelo December 5-12 2011. The rooms, the food, the service, and the friendliness of the staff were all class A in our opinion. One day we took a trip to Nicaragua and we mistakenly left our safe unlocked and wide open for the whole day. The maid came into the room to clean...

I just got back from Costa Rica. My husband and I both loved the Barcelo Langosta. It was very clean and the staff was excellent, always friendly. When we arrived we were checked in quickly and shown to our room. Our room was clean and the fridge was well stocked with water and pop. The maids clean the room and...

First I will say if you want to experience Costa Rica then the Barcelo will satisfy your needs. Its just a few minutes away from Tamarindo where you can shop and enjoy local businesses. The Resort is very well kept and the staff is very friendly. Almost everyone speaks English and is willing to help you in any way they...

Stayed at the Barcelo in Langosta at the end of July. Our room fridge did not work, and our exterior room door would have taken one kick to knock down (large crack in the wood). Our patio would not lock also. We made a complaint to the front desk and were offered a room upgrade. The upgrade was not much...

Just returned from this hotel. I try to find good things to say about places I've been but this one was difficult Check in Arrived around 2:00. I, as others, found front desk staff unfriendly.

This hotel exceeded our expectation by far. The hotel is right on the beach, is not busy and kept my husband happy with surf whilst the little ones explored the rock pools ! The hotel itself had good sized rooms and friendly staff. The key for us here was that they have a snack bar open pretty much all day...

We stayed at this Resort for a week in November 2011. Although the Resort was smaller than any others we had visited, it was clean, adequate and the staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was very cozy and comfortable. The pool was small, but, we enjoyed it each day. The ocean was beautiful, but, the waves were a little...
