We spent three nights at this hotel and it really surpassed our expectations! The staff was very friendly and courteous. Our room was spacious, clean and had a great patio with an expansive view of the Pacific Ocean. It was brightly painted in cheerful, tropical colors. Our room was one of four in a building that was built into the side of a hill and you descended on a path with a rock staircase to get to it. The rooms were surrounded by rainforest, which provided both a gorgeous setting and privacy. We woke one day to the sound of monkeys calling to each other. The breakfast at Si Como No was delicious. It included a buffet with your choice of eggs, french toast, pancakes, fruits, pastries etc. It was served in a lovely open air restaurant called "the Rico Tico Grill." We had three dinners at this restaurant as well as three breakfasts and found the food to be excellent, each time. The hotel also has a seafood restaurant. During the day there was a shuttle, from the hotel, that would take you on a short ride down to the beach and nearby Manuel Antonio National Park. For those who wish to swim, Si Como No has two pools, one for families and another for adults only. Each night a movie is shown in the main building. When we arrived, we received a free entry to the Butterfly Botanical Garden owned by, and across the street from, the hotel. We had a chance to take some wonderful photos there. We also took a night tour of Manuel Antonio Nature Park and Wildlife Refuge which is also owned by, and across the street from, the hotel. This tour offered a great chance to photograph various frogs, which are nocturnal, including the Red Eyed Tree Frog. Crocodiles are also on the tour. The best part of this hotel, from my point of view, is that they really make you feel welcome.
