We stayed at the Si Como No Hotel so, we had breakfast here each morning. The views of the Pacific are amazing. If you are staying in the hotel, it also offers a swim-up bar. It is connected to the "family" pool so it can be full of children during certain hours; if you are looking for an adult-only crowd,... More

The breakfast is buffet style, but you can order eggs any way you like them and they have pancakes and french toast and local foods that are very good. the fruit is outstanding! Drinks by the pool...

If you are nearby the SiComoNo Hotel, don't miss this super restaurant. Gorgeous view, lovely staff, terrific food for any meal or stopping by for a drink. My favorite dinner was Brocheta de Pescado / Fish Shish Kabob which happened to be grilled Mahi Mahi. Oh, if you are at dinner after dark, the Banana Flambe server puts on quite... More

The buffet breakfast is excellent, from the great Cafe Britt coffee to the made-to-order eggs, plantains, rice and beans, etc. Lunch next to the pool is a great lunch option if you are lounging next to the pool, with a variety of great local options. An Imperial beer is a must, as is the happy hour. Although there are a... More

My husband and I ate here as dinner here was included in our group tour package. Food was tasty and nicely presented. Staff was friendly. Atmosphere pleasant. We have no idea of price. Other members of our group also said they enjoyed their dinners.

Our 3 day stay at the Si Como No Resort was well above average. The standard rooms were very well equipped with a unobstructed view of the ocean from our balcony without seeing another human.

This is the second time we have eaten here and both times have been very enjoyable. With live music, a wonderful view of the Pacific and good food we had a very nice outing. Located at hotel Si Como No, it was an easy walk from our nearby hotel, Villas Nikolas.
