Wonderful stay!
This is our second visit to Barcelo San Jose. We have been to San Jose 4x and used Barcelo 2 out of 4 times, and we will never go anywhere else. First of all, there is free airport shuttle. The free buffet breakfast really fills you up. On the day we took a tour and could not avail of the breakfast, the kitchen prepared some sandwiches and fruit for us. The staff was very friendly! We will always stay at your hotel when we visit San Jose.

Very nice hotel. Has a comparatively better equipped gym, with sauna, steam bath and a jacuzzi. Avery nice pool and tennis an squash courts. Has a free shuttle to airport. The hotel is in a secluded area with no shopping or dining option outside. Also there is communication issue. They scheduled a shuttle to pick me up. But they never informed me about it.
