We had no idea what to except from Barcelo, and it was fantastic from the first moment! The staff is friendly, and everyone is so helpful! I speak Spanish, but my boyfriend does not. He had no trouble, and I had to practically force Spanish on them. They try very hard to be accommodating. Please note that this is not...

My wife and three teenagers and I just returned from a one week stay at the Barcelo Longasta Beach in Tamarindo. This place isn't terrible; it just isn't great. Costa Rica on the other, is great!

I just recently got back from Costa Rica and a stay at Barcelo Langosta in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. We loved this place. It could use some updating but it is clean, safe, has great food, and friendly people and comfortable beds. We had a group of Howler Monkeys outside our room on two days and we also saw Iguanas, and...

Stayed here for 5 nights in early June - wow, was it warm! We were grateful for the air-conditioned rooms! Gorgeous grounds - always clean and well-maintained Buffet - better than most, with sushi every other night. Pool - beautiful, but awfully warm, with no shaded area in the pool or swim-up bar. Nice options of kiddie pool, water polo,...
