Travelled from Feb 11-18 2012. You do travel 1 1/2 hr to get here, but they make a stop on the way. I think this is properly rated 3 1/2 -4 star. Rating system based on food. Hotel: Clean, grounds are pretty and immaculate. Rooms were basically all the same from what we saw. We did have a problem with...

My wife and I just got from spending a week at this fabulous resort. The grounds are lush with vegetation and well maintained. Our room was spacious and very clean. I especially liked the patio.

My girlfriend and I just got back from two days at Barcelo. We were in Costa Rica for 8 days and booked this place for our last two because we stayed at budget hotels the previous nights and thought that we might need a couple nights at a resort. We both agreed that while sitting at the pool was relaxing,...
