Si Como No came highly recommended from friends and was ranked highly by travel guides. The location is excellent; it's quite close to Manuel Antonio and the hotel provides a free shuttle to and from the public beach. This is not a good hotel for those with disabilities or seniors because of all the stairs. You can get a great work out just going to and from your hotel room to the lobby. The actual room was comfortable especially given that it was accommodating 4 people. There was a one king size bed, a day bed, and a cot. The bathroom was quite spacious as well. Our terrace had an amazing view of the ocean.
The buffet breakfast was fine, but the fruit was not covered and was always covered with bugs. Otherwise the Rico Tico restaurant was quite good and had many vegetarian options. We did however have an awkward incident our last evening there with the Si Como No restaurant. We sat in the restaurant for 45 minutes and still had not received our appetizer. The desk staff only asked me to fill out a survey and didn't attempt to make up for the incident.
All of our activities were booked through the hotel. Watch out because they take your money before they confirm if there is space. The woman at the desk, Sandra, said, "It was a deposit." She only told us that after she made all the call for the itinerary. We made her refund us the money and they pressured her to find another appropriate activity. We all got aggravated over the incident.
So while the amenities are great the staff have a lot to learn.
There was free Wi-Fi in the lobby also.
