Sicomono is a small hotel (61 rooms) in the Costa Rican rainforest on the Pacific coast. Beautiful views of the ocean and rock formations from the private balconies, fabulous food (breakfast buffet included) and very warm, friendly staff. The hotel is very environmental conscious and carbon neutral.
The Manuel Antonio National Park is a free shuttle away (about 7 minute ride); the beaches within the park (have to pay $10 park entry fee) are unspoiled and gorgeous; the nearby public beach is also beautiful (and free) although gets more crowded as the day goes on. We were advised to not leave any bags unattended on a beach (raccoons will get into them on the park beaches, people may get into them on public beach).
The excursions were wonderful--we did the trip to Santa Juana, Titi canopy (zip lining) and Manuel Antonio Park with guide. My advice on the park tour is to get there early-- we began at the park around 8 am and were essentially in a crowd of tour groups; it was hot and humid and uncomfortable (although our guide Henry was great and we saw/learned alot). If we had gotten there earlier (the park opens at 7 am) as we did another day to just go to the beaches, it would have been less crowded.
We were there in the dry season (March) and by midday the heat and humidity can be stifling-- best to stay out of the sun by then.
Both restaurants serve amazing food in a beautiful setting. Very fresh, interesting dishes with local flair. Excellent!
No fitness center but there is a nice yoga/pilates studio across the street (Epic Living).
