    I loved the attentiveness of the staff, from the guy at the reception desk, who encouraged my practicing espanol, to Ricardo at the tour desk, who helped me customize my stay in Costa Rica, from tours, transportation, phone calls, and just plain friendliness, to the grounds keepers, Mario and Baltismo (? cant remember name), who showed us all the greenery in the gardens. The gardens were gorgeous, the pool was being remodeled, just about done. The location was safe, clean, non-touristy, close to the airport with a free shuttle, an impressive breakfast buffet of endless options. My boyfriend raved about the food the whole time. We walked through the gardens, out the property and into the surrounding area to explore a neighborhood, some interesting architecture, and a local playground/park.Our room was clean, comfy, modern, and room service was quick and tasty. I have no complaints. This was my second stay at the Barcelo San Jose Palacio. First time was business, this time was vacation, both times were above and beyond satisfying.

    There was nothing I didn't like about the Barcelo. The price was fabulous, as were the staff, food, amenities, grounds, and location.

    Fabulous

    The suite was excellent! The key card security prevents elevator use to other floors. Good health club facility. Premiere Club on 6th floor was excellent! Food, drinks, staff and overall environment is top flight! Nice bar, friendly staff, nice live and recorded music for dancing. Large pool well maintained pool and area.

    Other than fruit and coffee variety, Buffett options are boring and blah. Ala Carte options are no better. Phone system is rip off. Four rings and you're charged even if no one answers. Exchange rate does not change with the market or daily. No enforcement of no smoking areas.

    The location, the staff, the service and the food were all truly excellent.

    The gym doesn't do justice to the rest of the hotel. The machines are old and therefore dangerous, some out of service, etc. An upgrade is desperately needed since most guests like to excercise and there is no where to run/walk safely around there.

    Very good

    La ubicación es buena, se encuentra entre el aeropuerto y la ciudad. El desayuno excelente y la piscina buena

    La atención del personal es muy deficiente, fundamentalmente la jefa de recepción que es realmente antipatica y ineficiente.

    Qualidade do quarto, tendo inúmeros detalhes que não se encontra em outros hotéis. De fato, o barceló san jose nos surpreendeu.

    Não havia internet free.

    Hotel is erg verouderd. Was in het verleden een stuk beter. Op de website word gesproken van gratis internet, dit is echter niet het geval. Redelijk duur zelfs.

    Fabulous

    Mooi zwembad, erg luxe ontbijt met heel veel keuze en goede sauna en jacuzzi.

    Dat er voor deze prijs geen wifi inbegrepen is terwijl dit in vrijwel alle restaurants (ook in veel lagere prijsklassen) in Costa Rica wel te gebruiken is.

    Nur die Putzfrauen waren überaus freundlich. Schöner Schwimmingpool und Park.

    Preis/Leistung sehr schlecht. Frühstück sehr mittelmäßig. Kaffee schrecklich. Das Hotel würde ich insgesamt nicht weiterempfehlen. Sher laute Umgebung.
