We stayed at Si Como No the week prior to Easter 2015. It was a spring break vacation for me, my husband, and our two boys (10 and 12). We found out about the place from someone who I knew who had lived in Costa Rica for 4 years and had been there. We chose it because we wanted to... More

We were very disappointed with our stay at Si Como No. The rooms look very old fashioned and in need of a renovation. The overall vibe of the hotel is more hostel rather than hotel. We were initially exited by the concept of the adults pool however when we arrived it too was tired looking and there was no view... More

Dear Sudielasudes: It is unfortunate that you were so disappointed. We do however, very much appreciate your compliments on our service and are glad you found a hotel more suitable to your tastes. We did find your assessment to be in rather sharp contrast to the thousands of verbal and written guest comments, written reviews, and TA reviews that we... More

Pura Vida isn't just an expression in Costa Rica; it's a way of life. And the folks who run "Si Como No" immerse you in the culture of their country. You feel like a house guest with the coolest hosts.

The restaurants on location had excellent service and food. Very impressed with Steven Flores, Supervisor, and his friendly staff. Joel went out of his way to help us. The nature park across the street, manuel Antonio Nature Park and Wildlife Refuge had great tours given by Viviana Jimenez and Cesar. We highly recommend taking these tours only with a guide.

We stayed for 4 nights and were very pleased. Our room was clean and comfortable and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The grounds of the hotel were beautiful with views of the Pacific Ocean and a tropical forest and many beautiful flowers and plants. One of the highlights was seeing a sloth in the tree in front of... More

Dear Mplstodd: We are really glad that you and your family enjoyed all the Flora & fauna that enjoy hanging around the resort. We always say that we are in the middle of their habitat, so the way the resort was designed and constructed was to protect the natural tree corridors and natural food sources of native tree species.

We stayed one night at Si Como No. Primarily chosen because of good reviews and proximity to Manuel Antonio. I'll start with the negative because it was more negative than positive here: The rooms (or at least the one we had) was dark and not very inviting. The hot water went out preventing us from taking a shower when we... More

Dear fsgnyc We apologize for the temporary loss of hot water, something that happens even in the finest hotels around the world, and certainly not unique to our hotels in Costa Rica. We understand and expect that broad negative statements about rooms and restaurants may appear on TripAdvisor from time to time. We look to guest comment cards and any... More

Hotel Si Como No is a lovely hotel near Manuel Antonio National Park, set up high on the hill with a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean. Rooms are quite spacious and comfortable.
