“Paradise...ahhhhhh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

This place is incredible - well worth the price for the experience and memories you will have here. We booked a deluxe room and as soon as we arrived...my jaw hit the ground. A beautiful spacious room with a panoramic view of the Ocean and a balcony to savor it all.... wow!

Highlights:
-The rooms are clean, comfortable, beautiful! We had a huge bathroom, the most comfortable bed, and it was so quiet and just...perfection. Plus, you could see the ocean as soon as you wake up in the morning, right from your bed!

-Rico Tico serves the most delicious food.... especially their breakfast buffet. The resturant staff is so friendly - we caught Leo's Latin Show and enjoyed a guitar rendition of the Super Mario Bros theme song :) The place has a great atmosphere.

-The Adult Pool is bliss. Great swim up bar, plenty of places to lounge, peace and quiet.... it's what vacations are supposed to be - drink in one hand, book in the other, immersed in a pool, sun shining and watching the waves on the ocean.....zen.

-Si Como No is committed to sustainability and conservation. There are signs and notices everywhere reminding you of this - which I was excited about as an eviro-nerd :) You're surrounded by plant life everywhere you go, and right on the hotel premises you'll see tons of birds, big iguanas, monkeys, frogs- it's great! We also enjoyed a night hike at the private preservation across the street. WE SAW RED EYED TREE FROGS!! and all sorts of other amphibians, reptiles, mammals (kikajou!) and insects. We had a great guide who was very friendly and knowledgable - and could mimic frog calls like a pro! We walked over to the Butterfly Garden the next morning and learned about the different scientific studies and conservation meausres the property supports. It was great!

This is by far, the best place to stay in Quepos - perfect for all ages!

Room Tip: Spring for the Ocean View Room.....you will not regret it!

i have been traveling to Costa Rica for many years and appreciate the fact that the staff and facility at Si Como No has maintained the ability to deliver a true Costa Rican experience while providing the luxuries that made the trip super comfortable. Attention to detail, warm staff, clean rooms, and great food.. makes me wonder where the two weeks went.

Great hotel. Rooms were spacious and very nice. The a/c was great as the humidity was very high. Spent 2 nights and then one morning, we watched a troop of monkeys walking across the rooftops right in front of us. Braekfast food as ok.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful facility. Our room was excellent and the view was absolutely amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed our morning breakfast buffet (included) and other meals at both Rico Tico and Claro Que Si. They also provided a free visit to their butterfly garden which we enjoyed. The staff of the hotel also was very helpful in arranging our excursions and assisting us with renting a car. The only complaint was with the showers. For some reason, we were unable to get hot water (lukewarm to cool showers aren't my cup of tea) and the hotel seemed to think this was acceptable when we brought it to their attention.

We spent the first days of our trip here and really loved the place. We stayed in a deluxe room with ocean view. Three of the four mornings there were white-faced monkeys in the tree outside our room. The landscaping is fantastic, the staff helpful, nice, and friendly. The service was great as was the food at both restaurants. The complimentary breakfast is quite nice.
The view from the restaurants and our room was incredible. Great place to relax, we would definitely stay here again

The entire Manuel Antonio area is now very overbuilt along a narrow ridge line. The room was quite small and our balcony was squeezed between two other rooms and we mainly could view a roof top. The room does not is open on only one side so air conditioning is required.

The restaurant food was quite good and I would recommend if you do go to the area. Their private nature sanctuary is quite small. We did see Capuchins but few birds amongst the buildings.

Room Tip: Get a newer suite if you can afford it for better views.

We had a wonderful experience staying at Si Como No. We have four kids ages 8, 6, 4 and 2 and they all enjoyed it. We saw monkeys are first morning at the pool - they were on the roof of the poolside restaurant, Rico Tico and the kids enjoyed watching the local iguanas. The family pool was a big hit for our family with the water slide and jumping platform as well as the swim up bar. We took a tour of Manuel Antonio National Park and did the jungle night walk and Michael was our guide for both tours. He was great - very knowledgeable and friendly - again good with the kids. The rooms were great for our family - clean and roomy.
