Barceló gets new hotels on Jacó, Playa Azul

April 3, 2009

The Spanish chain Barceló Hotels & Resorts said Tuesday it has signed contracts to operate two five-star hotels on Costa Rica´s Pacific coast.

The first establishment, the 150-room Barceló Jacó Beach, on the central Pacific coast, is scheduled to open in 2010 after a remodeling costing an estimated €49 million ($65 million).

The second establishment, the Barceló Playa Azul, in the northwestern province of Guanacaste with 248 rooms, will cost an estimated €178 million ($236 million) and is set to open in 2011.

With these new establishments, Barceló Hotels & Resorts will have a total of six hotels in Costa Rica: Barceló San José Palacio, Palma Real, Tambor Beach, Langosta, Jacó Beach and Playa Azul, with a total of 1,319 rooms.

Barceló currently has 187 hotels in 16 countries.

The new Costa Rica hotels come on the heels of the opening in February of a five-star lodging in the Nicaraguan capital, Barceló Managua. See http://ticotimes.net/dailyarchive/2009_02/0223093.htm for details.
