Barcelo San Jose
- What's Included
Location: Hillside, 5 min to downtown San Jose, 15 min from the San Jose airport.
Room overlooked a very busy noisy road, better glazing is required. We were on anAll Inclusive basis but they didn't seem to understand what this meant, hard to get adrink before lunch from the bar and were directed to the pool bar where the service was very poor. Also, wine very limited with meals lucky to get a second glass.Rooms comfortable and well equipped.
If you are looking for a quiet place that is semi-all inclusive with no frills, this is your place. Crowd is mostly senior citizens so don't expect night life at the place. Food was average but the same at every meal. Staff was very pleasant and always took care of you.
We stayed here for only 1 night, for our flight out of San Jose the next morning. It seems to attract more for conferences and business stays, we felt a little under dressed for just being tourists. Overall it was a nice stay, I liked our view of the city and mountains from our room. The bed and pillows were comfortable. We used a taxi that is usually waiting outside the hotel to go into the downtown (late on Sunday night not recommended, most places closed.) There is a sushi restaurant in the hotel but a little pricey for us (we are not there on business accounts). Next day we did not have much time so hung out by the pool which was nice, they have lounges and hammocks which I liked. Something I really liked was the botanical garden on premises. Small but a nice little walk and feels lush even though your in the city. Only thing that I did not like was the fridge was locked? and felt very off limits and uninviting unless you wanted to pay for extras and they advertise free wifi but when i tried signing on it said $7/day! I didn't think it was worth it for 1 day so I didn't do it, or maybe I was doing it wrong who knows. Staff was average, we met much friendlier outgoing ppl of Costa Rica outside the city but nothing in particular to mention. They let us have an extra hour of check out no charge which was accommodating.
Our family of 10 adults, spent 10 days in the Barcelo San Jose in January 2018. Our room was clean and tidy, the breakfast had a lot of choices for every taste, and yes, the elevators were a little confusing at first, but we felt very secure with their system. The desk clerks were very helpful answering our questions about local sights and educating us about the colones. We enjoyed downtime in hammocks by the pool. Our very favorite part of the visit was the nightly and most delicious food by the pool at the Rancho Bar. Brayan and Orlando provided fantastic service and they were a lot of fun!!! We would do this again in a heartbeat!
The Barcelo has soothing decor and architectural charm. Our room was quiet, and large The breakfast is substantial with excellent variety. the dining room has bright window light. The desk and baggage service is excellent.
