Where do I start! We worked with Irenia from Si Como No to plan our 9 day family trip to Costa Rica. She was the best. Everything she suggested was right on for our family. We arrived after spending 3 nights at Villa Blanca to the only problem of our trip. We were told we were not scheduled for the night hike that evening. However, the night hike was on our schedule. The hotel quickly called Irenia who arranged for our own guide to be Henry from the hotel for 3 days. Henry was fabulous. The kids, 10,7, and 6, loved him. We went on the night hike to see all the local nocturnal animals. The next day we went on the Manuel Antonio hike to see sloths,birds, and lots of monkeys. We took the all day Santa Juana tour to the village in the mountains. We visited the local school for 5 students and took them supplies they needed. This was a great experience for our own grandchildren to see a one room school with 1 teacher and how they learn. That tour included horseback riding, eating at the local restaurant, sugar cane making and lots of learning. We went zip lining, surfing, and rafting. The hotel has the best pool ever with a slide with two entrances, steps or climbing a hill. We asked for a kids movie to be shown 3 afternoons which they were most pleasant to arrange. And they made popcorn!
The restaurants at Si Como No were terrific, not gourmet but just fine for a family trip. The staff was very accomodating for the kids.The seafood restaurant, Claro Que Si Seafood, had the better food. Prices were fair. One night we had Steven who took very good care of us. Julio was in the Tico Bar by the family pool where the food was also good. Breakfasts were amazing. The smoothies were yummy served around the pool.
The hotel shuttle to the beach was a nice amenity. Hilda, the concierge, took really good care of us. We also ate at the airplane restaurant and at Victoria's where the pizza was really good made with a thin crust.
Rooms were very spacious. No two rooms are alike. Our kids had connecting rooms, 21 and 22, with two queen beds in each room. Ours was room 23 with a magnificent view of the ocean. It was nice to have air conditioning in the rooms.
The location was just perfect. We could walk to other restaurants and shopping.
Costa Rica is a fabulous place for a family vacation and the Greentique hotels are amazing. Thank you for this experience.
