I stayed in room 201 and it was huge. I had a full kitchen including coffee maker (you have to buy your own coffee and fixings) and blender, stove, refrigerator, pots/pans, and even a salad bowl with serving spoons. The two beds were comfortable and the built-in sofas were ok, but not padded enough for sleeping. This hotel is definitely not upscale, but it was clean and I loved having so much room. The screens on windows were torn and allowed bugs to get in, but with the windows shut and the A/C on I was a happy camper. My unit also had a large covered front patio with a table and chairs, although the mosquitoes in Manuel Antonio were large enough to carry me away so I didn't spend a lot of time out of doors in the evening. This is the unit closest to the reception area and I had WIFI available on the patio, but not inside the room.
I had issues with the air conditioner but a very nice maintenance guy fixed that quickly. Others in my group had a number of maintenance issues that caused endless trips from maintenance and in some cases changing rooms 3 times before finding a room with a working air conditioner. Every unit on the property and the restaurant requires a lot of steps. If you do not do well with steps this hotel is not the place for you. The restaurant food was ok but not great. Breakfast was very limited and the entire restaurant is open air. You must order off a set menu and the breakfast and dinner portions I had were very small.
Would I stay at this hotel again? Probably not. I don't know the rates because I paid for the entire trip as a package from a tour operator. Others in our group stayed at Si Como No and said their rooms were much better than mine, but they paid more for their trip package.
