We had a great time, but a few caveats:

The resort and staff were great: no complaints about our room or the very helpful people who work at the Barceló, who were all super-friendly. A few things you should know: This resort is a bit of a drive from the airport, and I think there are plenty of places to stay that are more convenient. Unless you are a surfer. The beach here is rocky and the surf can be rough. Good for surfers, not so much for swimming. We swam at a small cove to the left of the hotel beach, which was just fine. And finally: The all-inclusive is a great plan, but not if you're vegetarian. After a week of rice-and-beans and the salad bar, you'll be longing for some other type of hot food. Even the pizza had ham buried in it! BUT: the vacation itself was just great. Sunset cruise and snorkeling are highly recommended. We saw amazing humpback whales and had a really relaxing week. Take the day trip into Nicaragua if you can. You won't regret it.

Barcelo Langosta June 2015

We spent a week at this property in early June. This was our second trip there and we had a great time! The people working there were phenomenal - many of them remembered us from our previous visit a year ago. They made my 8 year old son feel like a VIP. The hotel is not that large, so it is quite manageable to get around. The buffet was good - during the week, they made individually prepared fish, steak or chicken - whatever one wanted. Breakfast was best with individually prepared eggs. All staff interactions were quite positive. Although all inclusive, we did tip a dollar or two which was not expected, but clearly appreciated! Downside is that you can't swim right off of the beach, but if you walk to the left, there is a cove and you can swim in that, no problem.

Great vacation!!!

I was impressed, and I can be very hard to please. I loved the location and it's beautiful surroundings. The hotel staff were attentive, helpful, and friendly. I don't speak fluent Spanish and had no problems at all. The hotel is a bit older but it has been updated nicely. The food was excellent. Great entertainment and activities were provided daily. Great secluded vacation spot. You are just steps from the beach. I felt safe - security guards were on duty and visible throught the day. I will definitely go back again.

May 2014 Costa Rica Trip- Great Weather

Stayed at Barcelo Langosta Beach Resort May 11-18, 2014. This is a wonderful area with friendly people in town as well as the staff at the property. 1. Food- many choices of vegetables and fruits. A vegetarian could really eat well here off the buffet. Lots of meat dishes as well, usually fish was the most common. Beef in the resturant was extremely good as well as the grilled shrimp. Service in both buffet and Resturant areas was extremly prompt and attentive. Always with a smile. 2. Beach area- you really do have to go down to the river area during low tides for a good sandy beach play area. The large rock formations out front are beautiful later in the day at high tide but not a great place to play/swim. Lots of shells to be found and enjoyed. The river is also fun to walk in a cool off. Surfing is pretty good out front and when the tide is high, waves were good and locals and visitors from all around surf here. Great place to sit back with a drink from one of the bars and watch while sitting under the palms or even from under the bar area. 3. Pools- great pool for little kids or non swimmers on one end and deeper area on opposite end. Very clean and not smelly. 4. Rooms- Rooms are clean and mostly well maintained. This is not a brand new resort so there is some usual water/rust damage in small places. (it;s near and ocean so there will be this in all properties!) The room we had was large, the bathroom nice with a nice large shower with a bench built in to the side for sitting if needed. Soap, shampoo, and cond. on the wall under the shower head. Lots of nice towels and 2 bath robes. Wonderful full powered hair dryer! Not one of cruise ship kinds!! Sliding glass doors for back wall to look out over beautiful gardens and or ocean. TV on wall with some English speaking channels. A/C and ceiling fan worked great and the bedding was very comforting. American travelers need to know about the Exit Tax before they go. It was $29 each at the airport. A lot of people we saw had not heard of this. I always to the STEP program from our government before we go to foreign countries and it was mentioned there as well. If you use a credit card to pay for this it will be billed as a cash advance. Just a heads up...we knew so we had the cash set back. Also.. we went to 5 areas to purchase a camera since mine broke on the first day. NO cameras in the town of Tamarindo at all and not even at the Wal-mart owned shops in Liberia.

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive, adventure-centric vacay where you can explore volcanoes & hot springs.

Perching poolside with yummy cocktails, sunshiny views and your favorite book.

The beach (great for sunning/surfing) has a "5-star Blue Flag" status for safety & cleanliness.

Splurging on spa treatments - Coco-lemon exfoliation, volcanic clay mask, green tea facials & bamboo massages.

 

What We'd Change

There is only one pool, but it's large and the beach is just steps away.
 

Why You Should Go

It takes an hour to get to the resort, but you can take in the dreamy landscapes as you travel.

Adventurers can float the Corobici River, zip line over the tropical forests or hike the trails.

There's entertainment day and night - dance classes, water games & activities at the main pool.

Shop in downtown Tamarindo to find authentic arts and crafts - especially coffee & chocolates.

Hotel Description

Barcelo Langosta Beach: Epic Adventures in Costa Rica

Living la Pure Vida ("this is living") is exactly how your vacay to Costa Rica will be. The lush landscapes and rolling mountains set the stage for zip lining though rain forests, river rafting down rivers, visiting volcanoes and dipping into fresh springs. Oh yea. It's going to be epic. The bonus for you: your all-inclusive digs sit on Playa Langosta Beach. The surfin' waves create a blissed out beach, and cocktail sipping around the pool is dreamy. Get your cameras ready - your pics will impress.
