"Perfect spot to rest after arriving in Costa Rica"
The hotel is superb. We have stayed here before, but the entire property has been refurbished, and the grounds are exceptional. The business area is free, with great, free, coffee for your enjoyment. They were just decorating for the holidays, and the effect was simply beautiful. Although we were here for only one night, it was great to have free, regularly operating shuttle service from the airport. I was impressed, and will certainly return.
This hotel although it wasn't super modern, it was well maintained and very clean. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful, and the complementary breakfast buffet was good. We (one additional traveler) were picked up from the airport by a hotel shuttle service at 1:30AM on a Friday, and were told at first we would be charged about $25, but ended up being free transportation. I would check on that, but I believe transportation from the airport to hotel is free as long as you coordinate in advance with the hotel. We also were not too far from downtown San Jose (National theatre), our cab ride was about $12 one way. I do recommend Barcelo San Jose Palacio and would definitely go back.
Stayed first and last nights there before leaving for more traditional tourist spots. Nice to have free pickup and shuttle back to airport. Room very nice, breakfast very good, good restaurants in hotel or across street. Looks like a resort with gorgeous grounds, multiple pools, gardens, orchid garden, etc.
