Friendly, helpful and cheerful staff. Stunning views. Two great restaurants. Two nice pools. Our son loved the fast water slide into the pool.

The property is beautiful and clean, the rooms are exactly as described and the staff was professional and friendly. I would definitely recommend Si Como No to anyone who is looking for 5-star accommodations in one of the most beautiful locations in the world!

Costa Rica has been eventful. Didn’t see as much monkeys as I would like to but overall a great and fun experience. There’s so much to do in Manuel Antonio.

Beautiful place. Will definitely stay there again. I wish it was a little safer for young children though. It was too easy for my 3 year old to fall off balcony. But we just had to me more vigilant. Still an amazing place and would recommend it.

Great experience . Great staff. Great views. Loved everything.

Traveled as family of 4 (kids ages 7 & 12). Kids loved the pool, diving board & water slide. Great breakfast included in rate. Fantastic dining on site & swim up pool bar. Easy parking. Great location with beautiful views. Very friendly, helpful staff.

Good location close to restaurants! Beautiful view from hotel rooms. Nice to have a pool as an option after the beach.

My family and I had a great time there. Great staff. Very good food. Wonderful hotel. My daughter enjoyed the pool slide. We loved every day that we were there. A bit expensive

The hotel staff is really attentive and takes good care of you. The grounds are beautiful. Great ocean views from the restaurants. We enjoyed the family pool and the slide. On the downside, we felt that the room was very dated and we expected it to be more up to date and comfortable, given the price. The room had a ceiling fan that was making a squeaking noise that couldn't let us sleep. The hotel's maintenance staff were not able to fix it, so we did not sleep well during our stay.

This was my second visit to Si Como No. The first was in 2004 and now in 2016. I usually don't go to any place twice but this place was special and I vowed some day to take my kids (now young adults). We all had a great time. The scenery was spectacular, the hotel very accommodating, and the excursions all exciting, fun, and well worth the cost. The best part of Si Como No was the lack of commercialization at the resort and surrounding area. It was great to just mingle among the locals. The hotel and surrounding restaurants were all great with reasonable prices and spectacular views of the Pacific ocean from atop the mountain. The wildlife (birds, monkeys, indigenous animals) was easily seen with great photo opts. The sunsets in Costa Rica are amazing and even better from the hotel or surrounding restaurants. The adult only pool and pool bars at the resort were a plus. The staff was great and the food and drink specials were delicious! I will definitely return for a third visit.

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 stayed here for our final night in Costa Rica. We purchased an "upgrade" Ocean View Deluxe room and expected more for the money. The room was small, outdated, and a bit worn-looking, and definitely not worth the price paid which would get us a true 5 star experience in the US. The food at the main restaurant (by the kids pool) was also overpriced and was not particularly good. There are other restaurants close by, but be careful not to get run over walking to them. On the positive side, the kid's pool was fun and the water slide was a hit. The gardens around the grounds were beautiful and the staff was helpful. The movie theatre was also fun for the kids. Better food and accommodations would meet this high price-point.

We enjoyed our stay at Si Como No. It was very friendly toward families. The pool was a lot of fun with children and adults enjoying the very fast water slide. The swim up bar served great fruit smoothies to cool off. Mostly, we enjoyed the staff at Si Como No. We particularly liked the staff in the Rico Tico restaurant and had a great service, as well, from the front desk. The concierge, Hilda Smith, was extrememly friendly and helpful with advice during our stay. Overall, we found this hotel to be enjoyable, especially with its location saddled up to the rain forest. It was a little on the expensive side for the amenities offered. We paid over $300 per night. It did include breakfast which was pretty good but was exactly the same each day of our stay. I would rate their food as very average for the type of hotel and expense. We ate most of our meals at other restaurants off of the property. Nonetheless, we saw monkeys and exotic birds right from our balcony. The full jungle / ocean view is breathtaking and the staff is friendly and courteous. We would stay here again but probably wait for a little better price than what we paid.

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!

Very accommodating staff . Magnificent beauty. Easy access to area sights.

Check in and out was fine. Shuttle was usualy late for pick up and drop off; food was adequate but overpriced. Absolutely NO alcohol in any drinks. View was great for one room, ok for other. Typical tourist destination. Much better food up teh street at a family owned hotel/restaurant.

Had a wonderful stay at Si Como No. Our room was certainly not fancy, but it felt clean and had an amazing view of the rainforest and the ocean. The tours through the hotel were on the expensive side, but well worth it. All of our guides were very informative. A wonderful stay overall!

This hotel is convenient to the National Park, Beaches and the nearby town of Quepos (short bus ride at 50 cents a trip). Expect to pay American prices for food close by the hotel. For authentic Costa Rica, it’s worth the short and effortless trip to Quepos.

Staff was excellent and very helpful. Loved the hotel.

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.

It was our pleasure to host you at our resort. While it unfortunate you were unable to see as many monkeys as you had hoped for, we are fortunate to be home to many types of wildlife, such as agoutis, macaws, and sloths, as well as various types of flora. We would love to offer you a personalized Greentique Hotels Package personally tailored to fit you needs. Best, Si Como No Family
