Allen, Joel, and Johnny are always happy to satisfy your every desire. Food is very tasty, original, and economically priced. The buffet breakfast has anything you'd want to start the day.

We stayed at SiComoNo, Rico Tico part of the establishment. Yes, you could find a lower cost place, but for the prices, the food was excellent and service beyond excellent. Johnny, Allen, Carlos all are there to make the experience great. Very good desserts, cheesecake worth a try.

Just your average hotel fare but in a beautiful setting. Eat there is you must or for convenience, but nothing special. Drinks were good and they do have a buffet for breakfast. If you take a dip in the pool or a slide down the water slide it may be worth it.

We were stated at a table near the open kitchen and subjected to its cooking smoke and heat. Also near the guitarist playing loud 70s music (Hotel California, Angie, etc.) in a "Latin" style and mysteriously accompanied by a bongo player. We couldn't hear ourselves talk. But the main problem was the mediocre and way-overpriced food. I'd give it one... More

Stopped here for dinner; lovely decor, in a hotel near the pool but not busy or 'hotel feeling'. Menu was OK, not huge. Had Mexican fare, which was delicious. Pretty expensive though. Highlight was the service- really lovely waiters and fun live music.

Rico Tico Jungle Grill. We offer casual outdoor dining surrounded by jungle gardens and graced with breathtaking jungle and ocean vistas. The grill offers Tico cuisine, a children's menu with many specialized fresh tropical cocktails. Just ask Jimmy Buffett about our buffet - not to mention, our margaritas!
