Hotel Si Como No was a hotel with good views, a sweeping panoramic view from its lobby. We were lucky our hotel room had similar views off it's private porch.
The room was spacious, having a sitting area and separate bedroom area. The bed was super soft and comfortable, while being large enough to fully sprawl out in for two adults. It was probably the best sleep we got all vacation.
The bathroom was clean and nice, but nothing particularly special.
Their restaurant, Rico Tico, offers a good breakfast with fruit, pancakes, french toast, bacon and typical Costa Rican breakfast of rice and eggs however you'd like them. The view is beautiful and service friendly.
Pools were nice, with built in bars that also offered food service. They shared a fantastic view of the beach. Be warned, they have a resident black spiny iguana. It surprised a number of kids. Don't worry though, she's not aggressive.
The one thing we noted - this hotel was MUCH further from the beach than we were led to believe based on information provided. There is NO walk to the beach. The hotel offers shuttle service, but I wouldn't want to rely on it. It can be a bit unpredictable with long times between runs.
The WIFI service is also spotty at best. There are computer in the lobby if you need to check on reservations or contact services, but you won't be able to get it in your room or porch. No TV in the room either, so there's not much going on at night unless you take a cab into Quepos ($6-8).
It's worth it to go into Quepos, there are hotels with good food at a fraction of the cost and some local nightlife.
