My husband and I just got back from a trip to Costa rica where we stayed at Si Como No for 4 days. Upon arrival, we immediately noticed the most beautiful view from the hotel. The staff at the front desk was friendly and they had a bellman come assist us with our luggage. When we came to our room it initially appeared lovely with a spectacular view. Later when I decided to take a shower, there was a HUGE spider crawling around the shower. I thought, no biggie, until we later came back to our room and there were ants EVERYWHERE IN THE SHOWER! Also crawling on the floor near our bed! Needless to say, we asked to be transferred to another room (which they were very happy to help with). When we arrived to our next room, we thought it was also lovely. My husband then noticed the stained glass windows in the bathroom were FALLING OUT and had open crevasses where bugs were crawling through!!! (also, they leave the sliding doors open when the room is unoccupied, just inviting the bugs in). Needless to say, we asked to be transferred AGAIN! The front desk staff, was extremely pleasant and helpful and upgraded us to a beautiful room with an even more beautiful view. This room wasn't "crawling" with bugs but it definitely still had some sneaking in. Having this experience on our first night really put a bad taste in my mouth about the hotel because I no longer felt comfortable in my room. The rooms need MASSIVE remodel, we noticed on several other rooms how the stained glass windows were literally falling out. They also need to bomb the place to keep bugs from crawling in the rooms. On the other hand,The restaurant Claro que si is AMAZING! The food was absolutely delicious, service was impeccable, and we truly enjoyed it. Yendry was our main bartender/server and she was a delight. Always happy to help and was great to talk to. She really is a great asset to SI COMO NO. Also carlos and stefan were wonderful at the bar and restaurant as well. Overall, we will not be going back to Si Como No. Bugs in your room just isnt something you want to deal with when you are on vacation. I have to say, the front desk was very accommodating and immediately changed our rooms which we greatly appreciated. I am just writing this review because I want people to know incase they plan on staying at this resort.
Another thing to know, the breakfast buffet is good food but along the buffet there are ants crawling EVERYWHERE. I know we are in the rain forest, but really!?!?! Isnt there something that can keep the ants from being on the buffet?
