I would like to start off by letting you know that we only had one hiccup on our trip. lets start with the air port, it was small and it took us about 20 minutes to come out after customs and getting our baggage. We booked with Signature vacations, in November (from Nov 28 - Dec 5)and while we were...

My husband and I have just returned from our 2nd trip to the Barcelo Langosta Hotel in Tarmarindo, Gunacaste, Liberia. This hotel is a gem - quiet,clean, beautiful gardens, rooms, good food and just the right amount of sunshine!! We have no complaints about this property. The staff -front counter, food services, housekeeping, security - well they are all there...

Just got back from Costa Rica yesterday and thought I'd get this down before I forget anything. We stayed at the Barcelo from Jan 5-12, and fell in love with the area our first day there and we're still in love with it now. The Barcelo resort well maintained, staff were very friendly, and the rooms were nice. The Resort...

We stayed at the Barcelo Langosa Beach from Dec 31-Jan 7, 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel. It is in what could be described an unspoiled part of Costa Rica. Ours was the only hotel on a wide expanse of beach front and yet was just a 20 minute walk from the funky town of Tamarindo. The...

My husband and I stayed there over the holidays for our honeymoon. Service from every single person was superb!!! Our bartender, Fabian, made excellent drinks. The entertainment staff, esp. Susan, were so much fun ALL DAY and ALL NIGHT! We didn't know that the a la cart restaurant was by reservation, but they seated us anyway and our dinner was...

I stayed at this resort for a week in June of 2011 with my boyfriend. It was so much fun and we had no problems at all. The food was amazing and there was always a variety of different things, everything was clean and well kept and the people were very friendly. We took surf lessons in the town and...

Expensive without the quality you expect for the price. Services were terrible, the standard of of the room was bad and needed a face- lift. A 5star hotel should also offer a shuttle service or some transportation deal. I don't recommend this hotel to anybody.

This is a great all inclusive... The buffet was always yummy, the rooms were clean and cozy and the staff was awesome... Here's the kicker... Its so close to the center of town that you can easily take a cab to the bars and nightlife (something I had never done from an all inclusive before) I was able to go...

We stayed at the Barcelo Langost Beach for a little over a week at Christmas. We had the trip of a lifetime and can't wait to get back to Costa Rica. But it was the beauty of Costa Rica, the people and the surfing that stole our hearts, not the Barcelo. The Barcelo was a nice enough place, definitely no...

We stayed at the Barcelo Langosta Beach the second week of December. We prefer to vacation on weeks that are not as busy. We had a great time in the Tamarindo area and did some great excursions (thanks to Denise at Xplore Costa Rica). Our views on the hotel: 1. Rooms were fine but not elegant. Bed was comfortable and...
