Our overall experience was positive and the grounds and pool are beautiful but as others have said, the rooms are in need of a facelift. The hotel has a great reputation but could use some updating to keep on par with the standards for other hotels in this class. We too came from Arenal Nayara, which is so spectacular, that we did feel a little disappointed at Si Como No. The rooms are large but the pullout couch for the kids to sleep on is a little tight. We found the food and service at the restaurant near the bar to be fantastic but thought that the service at the front desk wasn't quite as attentive as it could have been. Happy hour near the pool was great and the two for one drinks were a nice treat.
The location of the hotel is great as we were able to walk to several restaurants in the area for dinner at night with our kids. The shuttle to the beach was easy although it doesn't run in the middle of the day so you need to plan accordingly (we just took a cab back if we were off hours). My kids loved the waterslide in the family pool but there is a shortage of chairs during the late afternoon hours. We were there during a holiday week so it may just be that it was filled to capacity.
