Located in Manuel Antonio, a veritable treasure chest of natural beauty, the hotel is surrounded by lush tropical rain forest, inviting soft sand beaches, and nearby rafting rivers. All rooms include a fully stocked mini bar, custom king, queen or double size beds and ocean or jungle views. You won't find television or CNN in your room, but rather the sounds of nature and the beauty of the tropical flora n fauna just beyond your private balcony. Again, each room is designed to help minimize its impact on the natural habitat. Si Como No uses well water for gardening and maintenance, Bio-digesters for sewage, a gray water plant for laundry, biodegradable products for housekeeping, and city water for guest and employee usage. A Bocashi compost program utilizes waste from food preparation, and the hotel donates all glass, plastic and aluminum products to a local women's auxiliary in Quepos (ASOMUFAQ) each month. Si Como No utilizes solar panels to heat water along with back up "on demand" instant gas water heaters. Double insulated windows and ceilings, plus natural canopy shade factors help reduce energy demands and maintain natural comfort values for the hotel guests and employees. Discreetly integrated into this tropical paradise is Si Como No. Proudly occupying the most idyllic hilltop in Manuel Antonio, this award-winning Eco-designed Resort & Spa provides its own signature version of "barefoot luxury" to all its guests. From Hotel Si Como No, you can visit nearby beaches, the National Park and mangroves. Not to mention, the hotel's own Wildlife Nature Exhibits, which are adjacent to the property. Guests also enjoy a variety of water sports and local shopping, including the hotel's Gift Shop & Art Gallery. Founded in 1992 by Eco-vision, S.A., Hotel Si Como No has been a shining example of the global Eco-tourism movement ever since it opened its doors. As such, the hotel is a unique blend of the country's incredible bio-diversity and the deeply rooted cultural values of the Costa Rican people. An active member of many planet-saving conservation programs, Si Como No practices what has come to be called "sustainable hospitality." SEE. From the exotic wildlife of the magical ecosystems to the nightlife of Quepos, there are so many sights to behold. SEA. From the breathtaking ocean views available from every room to the golden sand beaches of Manual Antonio just down the road, the warm waters of the Pacific beckon you. SI."Yes." It's the word you'll hear over and over from the warm and engaging Costa Rican staff as they delight in honoring your every request.

Area description
Manuel Antonio is considered the most beautiful coastline in Costa Rica! And no wonder. It's as if Mother Nature herself sculpted the picturesque beaches and the rainforest? Like no other on the planet! Imagine a series of natural terraces filled with rare flora and fauna all overlooking the Pacific. It's all here! Discreetly integrated into this tropical paradise is Si Como No. Proudly occupying the most idyllic hilltop in Manuel Antonio, this award-winning eco-designed Resort & Spa provides its own signature version of "barefoot luxury" to all its guests. From Hotel Si Como No, you can visit nearby beaches, the National Park and mangroves. Not to mention, the hotel's own Wildlife Nature Exhibits, which are adjacent to the property. Guests also enjoy a variety of water sports and local shopping, including the hotel's Gift Shop & Art Gallery.

Dining

Restaurant
Hotel Si Como No Resort provides an experience that has been defined as "Barefoot Luxury". In that style the hotel offers great dining options, including two of the most popular restaurants in the area: The Rico Tico Bar 'n Grill serving it's own brand of Tico cuisine (dinner menu & lunch menu) and the new location of Claro Que Si! Seafood Restaurant featuring authentic Caribbean dishes. These restaurants specialize in Costa Rican and continental cuisine. And, of course, acoustic music by the "Tres Caciques" trio and unique tropical atmospheres come complementary with every meal. Newly opened is the poolside Boca Bar Mogotes, where the Caribbean meets the Pacific.

Beautiful!!!!

We had a wonderful stay and the staff is excellent. We found the food to be better at the hotel than the surrounding area, competitive prices and much better quality. No t.v in the room, but a movie is offered in the cinema every night. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Manuel Antonio. We drove from airport to Arenal to Manuel Antonio to airport. A GPS IS A MUST HAVE!!!!

Perfect place to stay.

My family and I stayed 3 nights and were sad to leave. This is a wonderful resort and the grounds and setting are stunning. Our balcony overlooked the jungle and ocean. The rooms showed some age (not the beds) but were comfortable and clean. There are 2 pools. The kids pool was delightful and adjacent to the lesser expensive restaurant and the adult pool was large and peaceful close to the higher end restaurant. The staff were gracious and professional and we found the people at reception very patient and helpful. Their tour recommendations were all fantastic. Excellent food, amazing location and would definitely recommend Si Como No to anyone especially a family.

Superior room for two!

This is a great facility with excellent service and world class views. The location is hilly (so it's good to be somewhat mobile), but it's a friendly and inviting environment. Rodger provides great customer service for tours and related activities.

Great place for adult getaway

Excellent hotel, restaurant, views and eateries. Rodger at the front desk does excellent work in setting up tours and making restaurant recommendations. Be sure and enjoy the monkeys that will surround you at breakfast time at the hotel's restaurant.

Great Nature Experience

The hotel and setting were beautiful. There were lots of great activities with outstanding guides (the night hike was very cool). The staff was very friendly and helpful. We saw fantastic wildlife including close up looks at toucans and sloths right on the hotel grounds. It did get quite hot and humid in the afternoons, but we were there in the rainy season. Two very nice pools were the place to be in the afternoon!

Wonderful, ecological hotel

We looked at other hotels in the area, and they seemed stuffy and old fashioned. We checked out Si Como NO, and the price was reasonable. We had a room with a balcony and we could see and hear the howler monkeys. The balcony looked out onto the Pacific Ocean. We ate at the hotel restaurant, and it was superior also.

Costa Rican Paradise

We had a family experience that we will never forget in this paradise. The hotel's design fits into the tropical background and the ocean views are spectacular. It is close to good beaches and across the street from the butterfly and reptile sanctuary. The ocean is warm with waves the little children can handle. The staff is warm, considerate, friendly, always ready to help. We enjoyed a spectacle of monkeys jumping from our roofs to trees, giving us quite a show in the very backyard of our pool. The pool has a slide and waterfall area that kept everyone busy for hours. I would love go back again.

We loved so many adventures, but the river boat to Isla Damas with the monkeys jumping on the boat and sitting on our head and shoulders eating bananas was a highlight.
