Fabulous 8.8 From 1,160 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Convenient to airport and shopping.
We used this hotel as a pickup and drop off for a shuttle service. The rooms are very clean and mattresses are so comfortable. It is a little noisy from street traffic. We enjoyed a good meal at the Rancho Restaurant but after having the buffet it was not to our liking. Was nice that breakfast is served from 5 a.m. for early travellers such as us.

Very Good 8.0
Typical Barcelo Hotel and Shuttle.
We enjoyed our overnight stay. Our room was comfortable and the bathrobes were a lovely added touch. Comfortable bed. We ate at the buffet restaurant and was very disappointed. It was very expensive and all it consisted of was Tico food. Next visit we will order off the menu or go elsewhere.
Ken, ca1 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Stay okay - service/food not great
Nice comfortable rooms. Food just okay not much selection. Breakfast experience was terrible. Was not enough seating and to get coffee you had to stand in line and use a machine..... couldn’t believe it 100 people to stand in line was very ridiculous for a five started rated hotel I would think better of them than that. We had to go to the kitchen and ask if there was any other way to get coffee. Won’t stay here again,
