Hmmmm

Posted Mar 6, 2015
Pros: pool and ocean
Cons: the buffet is repetitive and the desserts are unappealing. Rooms in the 1000s near the pool are not well maintained
Location: Went on a couple of excursions--one to Arenal and one to Nicaragua. Neither tour company delivered as promised.
Our stay was for 9 nights. First the bad news: The first room in the 1000s had no water one day, and no hot water for 2 days. The shampoo, conditioner, and soap were never refilled. The room was old and tired. We finally moved to a better room in the 4000 series. Take this option!! The food was buffet style and barely changed over the 9 days. There might be a night called "French" which was the same as "Seafood" with maybe two changes in the entree. The grille had the same chicken, steak (avoid this), hot dog, and pork chop every night. In fact, I really mean the same ones--they looked old and dry. The only positive here is the breakfast omelet station. The cook here is very nice and works to make his space a fun place to watch the omelet being prepared. The waitresses (and one waiter) worked very hard to clear plates and fill water glasses. We found many of them quite friendly. The dessert was extremely disappointing. Other Inclusive resorts have star quality desserts. This buffet was bland cafeteria-like foods. A little time could be spent in making the foods appear appetizing. The entire food experience was quite disappointing. The ala carte option is somewhat better, but can only go every 3rd night. Drinks can be too strong. The young man who bartends the bar by the front desk every evening was quite friendly. Now for the GOOD: The pool and ocean are among the best we have visited. Never a problem to find covered cabanas. Front desk staff very friendly

Ok all inclusive for the price

Posted Dec 21, 2014
Pros: The shallow pool for the kids, the location on the beach, the food.
Cons: Could be cleaner and better maintained.
Location: Location is good, $5 cab ride to town or a nice walk.
Our check in said 2pm so when we arrived at 2:40pm and got sent to the resturant to waste time until our room was ready- we got in about 4pm. They put us in the building closest to the entertainment stage and bar which does not work when you have two kids and the show goes until 11pm. We requested to be moved and they moved us the next afternoon. Another family that was in the trip also had to be moved because their a/c was leaking. The hotel is nice but the longer you stay the more you realize they don't maintain it so well. Our power went out a few times. Our shower ran out of water once and didn't drain very well. We found 2 pairs of underwear under our bed. The staff was always very nice but they do not bring you drinks at the pool area, you have to go to the bar area yourself. The food was good with lots of selection and the menu changes enough every night that you don't get bored over the week. They assign you a night to the a la carte restaurant but apparently then you have to confirm and ours said 2 people (we were 2 adults and 2 kids) so we never bothered. The beach was very nice and the location is great. The pool is nice with a separate attached shallow pool for the kids. They have people in the lobby who book tours and they were great helping our group coordinate zip line tours and we did the turtle tour. It was an easy and nice lace to stay with our family, a solid 3 star which could be so much more if they maintain or update the facilities.

Would not recommend this hotel!!

Posted Dec 17, 2014
First off, the staff at the club, spa and front desk were very rude. I got hung up on because I didn't speak Spanish, was told numerous different answers when I asked the same question, was ignored. The food was horrible it was the same thing everyday and the "free" open bar was a limited choice of bottom shelf liquor.

Honeymoon October 2014

Posted Oct 14, 2014
Stayed at Barcelo Langosta for our honeymoon during "rainy season" early October 2014. We were slightly concerned with forecast of rain every day but were pleasantly surprised to find it rained for only an hour or two a day and was otherwise sunny! Upgraded to a suite for only $200 more totally worth it! Two floor suite with spectacular view of ocean and forest. Took a few short taxi rides to tamarindo for surfing and shopping. Wish we could have stayed longer! Fabulous trip! Can't wait to return!

Hidden in the forest and close to the beach

Posted Aug 26, 2014
Barcelo Langosta Beach met our expectations. I went there to relax, enjoy the nature, the silence and the beach and this is exactly what I found. The staff is always nice, polite and reserved, there is high attention to cleaningness both in the rooms and the common areas. It's located 1km from Tamarindo so if you want to reach the small town you have to walk or to use the taxi service which is always available close to the hotel for 10$ round trip. The self service restaurant offers international food, average quality ( you won't go there to expect haute cuisine but the food can meet all tastes). I would only suggest to include the wi fi in the included services, because it's expensive and doesn't work everywhere, for example in the rooms far from the receptions there is no signal. Overall, I would definitly suggest this place to couples who want to relax and don't expect night life or to families.

"All Inclusive" doesnt necessiarily mean "all"

Posted Aug 12, 2014 on Hotels.com
My girlfriend and I were travelling by motorcycle for 9 days in Costa Rica. I reserved all the rooms through Hotels.com and had to go by the descriptions here. I thought i would add my own impression of each place. As for this hotel, I wasnt really impressed. Ive been to other all inclusives in Mexico, Belize, and Jamaica and this one was the least impressive. There was nothing really wrong with the hotel itself, but it is very hard to find. The internet was also not included. Staff was ok, but not great. not walking distance to the shopping tourit area....

Barcelo Langosta beach... the Un-inclusive

Posted Jul 22, 2014
Pros: Claudio and Ronnie were the best employees of this resort, Their friendly smiles and helpful attitude helped make it a more relaxing experience.
Cons: The "all inclusive" needs an overhaul. Advertising that its more of a local family destination would also help. We felt a little out of place here.
Location: Massage at Cocos, dinner at Patagonia and dancing at aqua but by far the best was sailing on the Antares sailing adventure! we will never forget it!
My wife and I spent the last leg of a perfect honey moon in this un-impressive resort. Upon arriving, we were met with 3 bell boys that just stood by and watched my wife and I carry our luggage from the shuttle into the crowded lobby. Walking up, I spotted several palm leaves to the side of the driveway with standing water in them, which made me weary about mosquitoes. We waited in a long line to check in(about 30 minutes) while screaming kids ran around unsupervised throughout the lobby. The concierge told us our room wouldn't be ready for awhile so we hit the buffet while we waited...in my opinion it was like a ran down sizzler that had been sitting in the heat all day. Then we decided to grab a drink and hit the beach. This was the only nice part about the resort. Once our room was ready, we went up to check it out and OMG! This couldn't be the "superior room" we booked, it looked like someone had thrown one too many parties in it, Everything was broken,the TV was crooked, the lights dangled next to the bedside, and a closet so small I had to kneel down to gain access. No mini bar, and room service isn't included in the "all inclusive". After a few complaints they moved us upstairs to a room that was more like a "superior room". We have stayed at hotels around the world some all inclusive and some not, but this was by far the worst! Upon check out just as I suspected, my wife covered in mosquito bites, and the standing water still in the same palms from three days prior.
