Manuel Antonio Si Como No vs. Tulemar

Hi everyone. I am trying to decide between these two hotels. Is anyone familiar with both places that could help me out. We are going in May.

Also this is our first trip. Are the hotels far from places to eat or shop?

For comparison between the two search the Manuel Antonio forum. There was a discussion of exactly the same question within the last few days. There are plenty of restaurants on the main road in Manuel Antonio. Below is a link to a map. There isn't much shopping. There are a few shops, vendors at the end of the road (by the public beach), and you can drive or take the local bus or taxi into Quepos for more shops.

As the previous poster said, the discussion was about a week ago, so do a search or go back a few pages. My vote is Si Como No. But I am baised, since we stayed there and loved it. If you stay there, get a Duluxe Suite, its worth the extra $$$. Tulemar is adding bungalows so there is the construction noise to consider.

Another note I wish someone had told us, we exchanged $$ in the Miami Airport. We lost so much $$ doing it that way. Si Como No will exchange for you for the exact exchange rate. So get very little before you get there. Also, everywhere takes US Dollars. Oh a last P.S. - our credit card company charged us a "conversion fee" when we charged things in Costa Rica (from Colones to Dollars). Check with your credit card company to see if they apply a fee for conversions. I found this out after we got back and had wished that I knew that before I left, I would have used a different credit card.

Have a great time.
