Verified Reviews of Barceló San Jose

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great Hotel"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Our group of 20 used this hotel one night until we left in the morning for Arenal. The shuttle was on time and the drivers were friendly. The room was clean with comfortable beds and great showers. The food in ElBosque bar was very good and the live band got everyone dancing. The breakfast buffet was amazing! So many choices and all of them tasty! I would definitely use this hotel again.
