We've visited a Barcelo in Costa Rica 4 times.
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.
Very Clean and comfortable

Hotel was very clean. The pool was fantastic. Service excellent - all servers had smiles and so accommodating. Activity directors had lots of energy.

Great location, there are dogs on the beach, food is good, selection was better last year, pool better this year c/w last year, drinks are good just not large selection, staff is great, wish the pool/beach area was quieter with the 'entertainment'
Barcelo at Langosta Beach Tamirindo
Aug 03 2011
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.

Occidental Tamarindo was so much fun! My friend and I stayed here for 5 days and we had such a good time! It was a good balance of relaxation and fun and on top of all of that the staff was AMAZING! Would recommend this resort for anyone wanting to explore Costa Rica.

Property is too far from San Jose. The beaches are too rocky and if you want to swim in the ocean you either walk 10-15 minutes or pay the hotel 4 dollars to drive you there. Some staff service needs training. There are no elevators for handicapped. This hotel is too expensive for what you really get for your money. I would never take my family of 12 back to this hotel.

We all loved the staff, the food, the entertainment. Our kids felt safe and the staff was super nice. Wonderful food for kids and adults. It was very close to town and we felt welcomed by everyone! Thank you

I enjoyed my stay with Occidental Tamarindo. The location is quite close to the town, just a 5 minute taxi ride. The reception is very quick with scheduling a taxi when you need one. The cost is one way, but it beats walking 20 minutes. The staff at occidental are very friendly and will make your stay enjoyable. Shout out to Jaquin, Damian, Jeannette, and Carlos. The food at the buffet is good, serves your typical costa rican food. They also have a chef standing at the corner of the buffet who make omelets for breakfast and grills various meats for lunch/dinner. He is sort of hidden, so look out for him. There is one other restaurant on site that is only open Thursday-Saturday and you must make a reservation at least a day ahead. I do wish they had more fine dining restaurants, but overall the experience was great. The resort is right on the beach and not overly crowded. Alcoholic drinks are decent, just find the right bartender to hook you up, a tip helps. :) They are also willing to make drinks that are not on their drink menu as long as they have the ingredients. They have zumba in the morning, dance classes in the afternoon, and a show in the evening around 9pm. There is a dance club as well. Beach volleyball was one of our favorite activities to do. Once again you will enjoy this resort for many reasons, but the staff made it the best.
It was fine.

We enjoyed the trip, but it didn’t feel like what we expect from an “all-inclusive”. Staff were wonderful and helpful and courteous. Bathroom was never properly cleaned. Buffet food was subpar; restaurant food was excellent.
