Absolutely loved this property and would stay again if I had the opportunity. Yes, the buffet got a little old after 4 days, but it's included! It's not what we eat in the US, but it's excellent none the less! ALL the staff were amazing! Our car didn't pick us up to take us to the airport, and the desk clerk, the security guys, and the "bell hops" were all on their phones either trying to contact the company we booked through, or calling friends and cab companies to come help. At 3:30 in the morning!!! GREAT PLACE on the Beach, Huge Pool, lots of activities.

A very welcoming environment

My family and I (husband and two kids) visited Barcelo Langosta All Inclusive Resort in Dec/Jan 2013. Everything about the place was fabulous. The staff were excellent and very accommodating. We can't say enough about the Entertainment staff, particularly the Entertainment Director, Joaquin was the best face of Costa Rica. Both he and his staff work tirelessly around the clock to provide guests a pleasant and fun environment. We'd highly recommend this place as a family oriented vacation. Costa Rica is a beautiful country and we look forward to visiting new places in the future.

Awesome county. We loved it!

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: No free Internet
Family vacation with 2 teens. Such a wonderful country. We were very happy with the hotel. The entire Staff was very freindly and helpful, food was great, lots of variety at every meal, rooms kept very clean. Drinks were good and we never had a problem getting served. Beautiful grounds, awesome pool, all very clean. The beach was great at low tide. My son had a blast boogie boarding and riding the "lazy river" that flowed from the beach to the ocean. The Beach was small and too rocky at high tide so we did not go on then. Little crabs kept getting into the room but my kids loved them, it made us laugh. Room was large but could use a bit more furniture. Cleaning staff did a great job changing out towels, cleaning & straightened, and even organized all our shoes each day. Jose took us on a tour of the grounds and made sure we had plenty of bottled water in our room. Location was good, 25 min walk to town. Really cute town but not cheap. We booked several tours with Jussy who works for TAM and has a desk at the hotel. She was very nice and helpful and all the tours were a blast. We have travelled all around the world and this was one of our top vacations ever. We will defenitley be back to the Barcelo Langosta Beach.

All Inclusive is always a good idea

Pros: all inclusive
Cons: No free Internet
We had a large group of us meet at this resort. Food was surprisingly good, staff was great, lots of activities, grounds we nice and clean. Rooms were a bit musty. Resort is right on the ocean. Chefs cook our fresh catch from fishing for us. Very safe environment.

Nice 3-star resort

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet, on a very nice beach
Cons: No free Internet
Overall, this was a very nice hotel/resort on the beach. There are not a lot of amenities, but the grounds were immaculate and well-maintained. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, especially if you will speak Spanish with them. The area is safe, and only a mile walk from town. Also, the resort is fairly close to all the activities that you might want to consider: zip-lining, surfing, horseback riding, etc. The hotel charges a reasonable rate for internet access ($40.US for 7 days), but only one laptop/cell per room can use the service at a time.. The food was mediocre: not excellent, but far from inedible. The drinks were also not very strong, and the house wine was horrible. If you are looking for gourmet cuisine, this is not the place for you. However, if you want a great resort that is carefully maintained, with a friendly staff, and a comfortable size, All on a budget, I would definitely recommend this hotel. I would stay here again.
