Basic resort, nothing special or fancy. If you’re looking for a clean, somewhat updated, inexpensive place in San Jose I do recommend barcelo.

I loved the staff. Everyone was very polite and helpful. Our room was very clean and the food was ok. However, there was one thing I did not like; the smell. I don't know if it was the detergent they use for washing the sheets or the water but it had a particular smell that I did not like lol. It seemed to not bother my husband one bit so it could have just been me.

This is our 2nd visit to the Barcelo Gran Faro & it met our expectations. Grounds are beautiful, food is good & drinks are plentiful! Plus, they did a great job of recognizing a birthday at breakfast, cake in the room, & at dinner! We had a hard time finding a table & area to play cards but managed to make do😝.
