    The hotel itself was directly on the beach. To place tamarindo were about 5 kilometer. the town itself to reach was It 3 possibilities: along the beach about 45 minutes on the street, but you had a lot of dust inhaled in about 60 minutes, or With the taxi 2 times 5 Dollar. A public bus was about about 500m away from the hotel. Departures were not known. To the next airport Liberia there were about 70 kilometer. from Liberia after tamarindo there was also a flight connection. To the airport San Jose was the journey via shuttle with 5 hours specified. Unfortunately in the hotel there was no german travel agent as well as german ausflü - ge. They were all english or spanish speaking instead.

The hotel is not very big and clearly, what we in the election of the hotel have assessed. The rooms are nicely furnished and spacious. Ours was quiet and in green surroundings location, so that we every day from the balcony from iguanas, howler monkeys, hawks and hummingbird could observe. This was undoubtedly, in addition to the extensive beach strolls the highlights of our hotel stay. The shuttle from the airport to the hotel and back was a absolute disaster. There is only one main road, the always crowded. Back we brought it on 7 hours with just 2 short ... breaks. The check in and-out was unacceptable. The lady (n) ignored simply and only after multiple requests we got to 3 hours our room. The luggage carried during our zimmerrecherche, of course itself. The guest structure continued primarily from british and americans younger age together. Hardly german tourists. read hotel review

  • Gastronomy

    We only used the beach and main restaurant. In the beach restaurant there was next to salads, fruits and cake mainly fast food (pizza, popcorn, burger, fried chicken parts). We enjoyed it. In the main restaurant there was something for everyone. There was a wide choice of international food, but bland and boring were. Somehow tasted always everything right. I stayed at the fruits and ice cream. The waiters were also without tips always very friendly and accommodating. The restaurants are very clean kept. The volume due to the tourists and the constantly dudelnde music is unbearable! In the restaurants there was train station-feeling. Of peace, relaxation and enjoyment no trace.

    As already at the beginning are described the ladies and men at the front desk of the category disaster needs. The usual welcome drink was not available. The tour guide was only on request, what we only once to see had. Artfully crafted towel swans amongst others there were despite regular tip and sweets not. The room however well cleaned. All the staff spoke only spanish and english-absolutely no german. Our problem with the dripping air conditioner, was promptly and properly repaired. The service staff in the restaurants, i deeply respect. Everybody was extremely quick (it was already really dizzy ☺, friendly, polite, tidy and a lot of positive more! Some saw you both for breakfast, as well as during dinner... Incredible. At our departure we were stupid and i spoke a not identifiable the bus drivers on, which is a half hour with the porter entertained, if he were on the list and take away would. Until then contacted i desperately the guide and jahn travel. A never erlebtes chaos! The service staff i give fantastic 6 suns and the rest only 1 sun. Therefore, there were unfortunately only 3 suns.

    Entertainment took place every day. We enjoyed the offerings and found this even as extremely disturbing in this beautiful nature reserve. At night the turtles their eggs at the beach and during the day the animals with live music and boxenware exceedingly sonicated. Cups, paper plates and straws fly constantly and the used affects it is not. We have much, also at the beach, together and thrown away. We are smokers, but both our, as well as foreign cigarettes picked up. The behavior of most tourists is a disgrace. In a few years Costa Rica no natural paradise and Ballermann lets greet.

    The hotel is located directly on the beautiful beach. The river could be easily reached in a short time to cross. Not too lots of tourists interacted then. It was quiet and you could pelicans and gulls in the fish catch. The beach is very clean and who has a somewhat stronger waves like, in clear and refreshing water swimming (caution is still always!). There is no shuttle bus. But with the taxi one could in a short time and cheap in the nearest town is. Where there are numerous shops and restaurants.

We were 3 weeks ago with the rental car and we came rather by accident at the barcello and were pleasant with a great hotel room right next to the sea surprised. The beach with the evening sunsets is brilliant! All inclusive is super with enough buffet&sushibüfett, breakfast with a lot of choice, evening agenda rather for ticos! Cocktails delicious, pool great. Recommendable Costa Rica with rental car! Saw so much and without reserve always where under! read hotel review

The hotel is on the national park with lots of greenery and tall palm trees, animals like Leguanen, squirrels, birds and monkeys very nice location. Left from the hotel there is a river at low tide can cross and miles on the other side walking. As the river with the sea connected, it is possible in a sea and the river formed lagoon to swim and this is of mangroves surrounded. The staff are very attentive and friendly, always helpfully also without tip. The rooms are large and spacious and nice in Caribbean style, even the balcony is big, with ... a view of the large garden, since I in the 3rd floor lived I had the view over the palm trees, to the sea. In the morning you through Affengebrüll, chirping birds and the sound of waves woke us up. The food is to all meal times varied and tasty, something for every taste, in the Ranchobar from lunch cocktails, food, coffee, juices and cakes. Once in 7 days you can à la carte in the Ozeanrestaurante food, here you will like a king served, the meals are very tastefully prepared, the restaurant even looks very plush. It is the best hotel the I have ever seen there is nothing bad to say everything was perfect and I travel every year in another country. From here to tamarindo is it a nice walk of about 20 minutes. Unfortunately are the access route attractions very far, so I would afterwards rates as all destinations in a round trip to make. read hotel review

Very good food in comparison to the other hotels with our round trip ( there was also sushi ), the rooms were oK apart that we do not really clean bed sheets had (also the change of the laundry was new bed sheets never without stains no matter wether on the sheets or pillows). We could only at 14 o'clock Check-in of course not so great when you by bus san Jose 5 hours the badehotel are traveling. The hotel is directly at the beach where in front of the hotel rocks but if you are immediately next to the ... hotel by the river (only goes in shallow water because it is very strong currents) has a kilometer metre miracle beautiful einsammen beach, there you will find many mussels. On the complex there are some wildlife to see. Swimming in the sea is only limited possible because it is very strong currents is available, it was great waves, for swimming is much better the small river in the sea disembogues. read hotel review

Nice little plant getting old is, nice rooms in the new buildings, in the old houses is still lagging behind. The pool area is nice, but also here the ravages of time. Food was good. Service staff was mostly very friendly. On weekends, many locals in the hotel, which of course in the restaurant for waiting. Which is noticeable, that is the Costa Rica guests to the meals almost ostentatiously preferential treatment (table, drinks and clearing service). What we found a shame.

A very nice and well-kept area with a lot of green, right on the long, and quiet beach, the pool area and the room were in a very clean condition. The staff is very friendly and helpful also without tips, the only downside is the no employee in the entire hotel spoke German.
