"Average Hotel but Fantastic Beach!"
We stayed at the BarcelÃ³ Langosta (now Occidental Tamarindo) right when the new owners were coming in. We were with WestJet vacations so we arrived very early on a Sunday to the hotel (8am) and didn't expect to receive our room until 3pm. The resort is a bit tired, but we got a great deal so thought we would just go with it! The beach access is amazing- the most gorgeous beach on the Pacific side according to the locals. When we went up to check around 2pm (as recommended by one of the staff), they said our room was ready. We were taken to the 4000 block with one of the valet's and it wasn't ready. They kept saying 5min but finally an hour later they had moved us 3 more times before we ended up back in the original room in the 4000 block. While this was happening, there were a lot of very angry guests at the desk being moved rooms as the renovation was starting on the hotel. Now, down at the pool I was very surprised to see a lot of people at the resort to the point where the bar line up at 10am (when they open) was very long- we started getting 2-3 drinks at a time, and the cook couldn't keep the snack table filled! First off, we found out that this is a popular place for locals to come on the weekends (the pool was a lot quieter during the week) and secondly, we found out they only had one bar open at a time and one dining area open at a time. Not very "all inclusive" friendly. The service staff at the bars were indifferent because of the locals and the dining area staff were a bit better, but never very prompt. The food got very tiring, very quickly. We ate in town one night. We received 2 a la carte nights during our stay. The first night was actually served in the normal buffet restaurant and we didn't get any choice in our meal- so the buffet may have been better. The second night was in the private restaurant and the food was very delicious. The staff were very friendly, although very confused that we wanted to purchase a nicer bottle of wine! They eventually took our money though... haha. All in all, this place is on sale, but is it worth it? I would say no. If you can, spend the extra $300 or so and go up the beach to Dreams- apparently that resort was a great experience.
"Average at best..."
We are still currently here for another 3 days. We are Occidental First Club members but decided to try a Barcelo location in our bonus time. The resort is ok. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The food for us had been better than some of our other locations. We are accustomed to larger buffets, more pools and many more activity options when we stay at occidental locations. It has been nice to relax as this is our honeymoon . As we sat down to sun ourselves for a bit at least two bus loads of local school children rolled in and have now taken the ONLY pool hostage. You couldn't go in if you wanted. We were lucky to have saved our loungers also as they have taken over those as well. This is very very off putting. We will not be back here for quite some time, if ever. Can not praise the staff enough. Just overall a lackluster experience.
"You get what you pay for"
Considering this was an all inclusive hotel deal, which we booked last minute due to having to head away from hurricane Otto, it doesn't represent bad value for money. The block our four rooms were in was however really poor quality, in dire need of an upgrade/redecoration. They all had a very unpleasant odour, and the bathrooms were in need of some deep steam cleaning to rid them of mould. If you are checking in here, don't accept any rooms in block 5000. One of our party also had a leaking fridge and smelt the worst, so requested a change of room, he was moved to block 1000 near to reception, which in fairness was a big improvement. The beach was quite nice but would be improved with cleaning/raking - around the resorts sun loungers - as there were a lot of ants here. Having to log back in to the wifi so often is a pain and a bit antiquated. On a positive note the gardens were nice and well maintained. The head chef dealt with one of our gluten free party better than the previous five star hotel, but the a la carte meal chef did not perform so well (putting bread sticks in the mash potato) although the rest of us enjoyed our meal. The quality of food was only OK, hence the get what you pay for feeling, but the drinks were all included which made a welcome change as we found drinks expensive in the country as a whole. The white wine really should be changed, I couldn't drink it.
"Good value for money but looking tired "
This hotel is good value for money considering it's all inclusive and so cheap. The rooms however are a little tired and smell 'earthy'. The staff are lovely and very helpful, Rene was very helpful on the front desk and Julius out of the kitchen sorted out a special gluten free meal for my sister and nothing was too much trouble. Good work Occidental!
"Amazing vacation "
My family and I spent a week here. We loved it. The hotel rooms were very clean and the staff was super friendly. Food was great. The beach was nice and quiet. Very private with millions of sea shells. There's a bit of a rip tide so children need to be careful as there isn't a lifeguard on duty. We had an amazing family vacation here and made tons of memories. Costa Rica is absolutely beautiful. I recommend getting out and taking a tour or two. We saw monkeys in the trees at the resort and iguanas everywhere. Can't say enough great things about this trip!
