9.4 Wonderful

Cons:Lighting in rooms couls be better
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:appearance of hotel restaurants buffet breakfast recycling staff was excellent
Cons:rooms were a bit small
8.0 Very Good
Pros:Value for money
Cons:Very limited Spa and small Fitness Center
2.0 Poor
Pros:The hotel said that the first three floors had no water service and all floors above were booked. However, we went to the fitness center on the main floor and the showers were working fine. The kitchen on the main floor also had a water supply. We found out later that the water line was a lie. The hotel used that as an excuse to send us to another hotel because they had overbooked. The hotel they sent us to had a cheaper rate than Barcelo. The hotel that Barcelo sent us to said that Barcelo over books all the time, lies to their patrons all the time, and sends them to the hotel we were sent to and forces the other hotel to deal with or try to make up for Barcelo's mistakes and poor customer service. Also, one of the reasons we booked this hotel was because of the free airport shuttle service. The shuttle never showed up at the airport. We were told there would be a shuttle at 6:30, at 6:45, we called the hotel and it turns out they never sent a shuttle. We ended up having to get a cab and we were not reimbursed for the taxi ride. For the ride back to the airport, I just booked a taxi because I did not trust the Barcelo shuttle to pick me up in time from the hotel they sent me to.
Cons:Did not like anything about this hotel.
8.5 Very Good
Pros:It was a good hotel for our stay in Costa Rica, but because of the location you can't walk to anything, you need a cab to go anywhere.
Cons:The food at the restaurant, especially dinner, was expensive and not that impressive.
8.5 Very Good
Pros:Staff are highly friendly and bilingual. Some of them at least. It's right off the freeway and a good price for what you get.
Cons:Gym was hardly there at all. Fitness is important to me.I can improvise thanks to my training but I might as well have done bodyweight workouts. They didn't have someone at the front gate to let me in so I stood there for a while before crawling under the gate to open it myself.
9.7 Wonderful
Pros:Breakfast buffet was superior and the lobby, garden and the pool were beautiful. The staff were very helpful and kind.
Cons:You have to take a taxi everywhere, and the cabs that are available at the hotel charge a premium to get you to your next location. It was $12 for a cab ride to Centro downtown and $6 for the cab ride back.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The staff was wonderful and made me feel right at home. Check in and check out was very quick and efficient!! I also really enjoyed my dinner at the pool bar restaurant!! My room was very clean and comfortable as well and the hot water was AMAZING for my bath!!
Cons:There was nothing I didn't like!!
5.4 Fair
Cons:Prices for the food... It was over priced.
