Beautiful Hotel with an awesome friendly staff!”

The pictures of the outside of this hotel don't do it justice! Barcelo is beautiful! Top notch! A+staff.. I stayed at Palma Real hotel and casino beginning of my stay in Costa Rica! That place sucks. I wish I would of stayed at the Barcelo the whole time. No thieves in this hotel. Staff was super friendly. Rooms were amazing . Food was delicious. Spend a little more. You won't regret it! Barcelo has it all!

Not worth your money”

We booked a suite for our (family of three) last night in Costa Rica, before heading back home. Turned out to be the worst stay throughout our vacation: An unresponsive staff team was huddling over one guest, ignoring our arrival to begin with. After a quick check in we moved to our suite on the first floor only to discover that the staff had forgotten to prepare it for our son - they did bring a third bed after we called. Did I mention that nobody bothered to ask whether we could use help with our luggage? The room was ok as rooms go, located on the first floor with all windows facing the highway - and that is the worst part! It was brutally loud! The windows do nothing to keep the noise out and sleeping gets problematic if not impossible. The staff was trying to come up with an alternative solution, but no other rooms were available apparently. This definitely put a fat damper on our stay in Costa Rica. I definitely do NOT recommend staying here. (Also, don‘t try the pizza)

Not a 5 star experience ”

We had several issues with check in, from the wrong room type, long waits for service, poor disinterested service from staff, room keys not working, elevator not reading cards and the list goes on. It was an hour and a half before we were in our room. Breakfast staff again were very disinterested, rude and aloof. The breakfast was mediocre 😕 bread was stale, slapped on plates, not to 5 star standards. We contacted management about our experience and the Director's response was short and was focused around future staff training without a solution for us. Pool is nice although the bar and grill area is fairly messy and not kept throughout the day. Broken hammocks were more common than usable ones. Gym was well equipped with a helpful attendant. Bell boy was great, but that was about the only thing that was 5 star in the place.
