We sat down with Florencia Carbonell, sales manager for Barcelo Longosta Beach, and learned that Barcelo Hotels and Resorts will be opening its first property in Guatemala and its second in Nicaragua. Both properties are tentatively scheduled to open in 2009 and will each have between 120-150 rooms, we learned. Carbonell also told us about Barcelo Longosta Beach’s recent additions. The property in Guanacaste, Costa Rica recently unveiled 78 new rooms, bringing its total from 120 to 198. Among the rooms are six junior suites, four regular suites and one master suite. The master suite is now the property’s best room, sporting two-floors each with a balcony and a Jacuzzi located in the bedroom.
