Other hotels in the same area also offer the same views or even better (if you are staying in the bottom tier type rooms) for a signicant reduction. There is no TV in the rooms and we thought that would not be a problem but it did matter during our third day while it was raining. I am a world traveller and I believe that this Manuel Antonio area is overpriced and does not offer the warm type beaches one would expect. The national park guided tour is helpful but not as good and what you would see in northern Costa Rica. Overall, this area is too overly developed and the town of Quepos has nothing to offer. Objectively speaking, spend more time in northern Costa Rica, especially the the Arenal area and explore the warmer, friendly waters, and less developed areas of the atlantic coastline unless you are a surfer or an older type.

We stayed at Si Como No for 2 nights during our stay at Costa Rica. AFTER checking in we were told that one of the resturants and one of the pools ( the one with the view) were closed for the entire month of September! They are renovating and there is some noise during the day. The view from our balcony was amazing but we totally agree with the earlier post about needing a renovation. The room did not smell but the cushions and bedspread were just plain old! It had a small kitchen in our room which was a little stange but ok. I do not think that it was worth the money. The staff was friendly and the food was good at the swim up bar and other resturant. We found the breakfast to be good as well. We went to the beach ourselves, which was great with big waves, nice chairs and umbrella.
Be aware that the sun is VERY strong - we went to the water 1st for 10 min. then put on sunscreen - BIG mistake - put it on right away, the sun is really strong, even my tanned husband got burned in 10 min. Overall there are many other places to stay that hopefully would be better.

We loved the hotel. It was gorgeous. We had a deluxe room with a great view of the Pacific. The adult pool was awesome and we had it to ourselves most of the time. The staff was very good and could answer all of our questions in English or Spanish. Service was great, food was good, but US prices for drinks etc. My husband who is a pancake expert, adored the ones at the buffet. Fluffy and golden. We didn't do any of the hotels recommended tours but just went down to Manuel Antonio ourselves when it opened at 7AM. We saw monkeys, agoutis and a coati. We had a beach all to ourselves. As we were heading back to the hotel around 10AM the park was filling up, I'm glad we were there early.
