I stayed here 2 weeks ago. Positives - the view from my room and the communal areas was sensational. Negatives - the shower didn't really work. There was no safe in my room which was surprising given what I will write later. Food and Beverage - the swim up pool bar was great. The restaurants were ok but there are cheaper alternatives of the same standard within walking distance. The breakfast choice was limited and service was painfully slow. My real disappointment is the attitude of the management regarding the theft of my phone from the beach (not their property) at the time and subsequently. The people who had my phone contacted the hotel and arranged to meet me there. They blackmailed me for $500 in full view of the CCTV and hotel staff and management. The thieves never returned with the phone even though I agreed to pay a lower amount. The view of the management was that they could do nothing about it and if I wanted to take it further I would need to attend the police station for hours into the next day whilst leaving my small children alone in the hotel. I declined to do this. I found it quite amazing that a small community that Manual Antonio is, no one out of the 10 or so staff who saw these people when they were blackmailing me could trace them that evening. I'm sure they could but they didn't care. Anyway, the phone was gone and I left for Puerto Jimenez where I doubt such crimes happen. Since then I have e mailed the hotel 4 times, sent numerous WhatsApp messages but they refuse to send me a letter confirming that the incident happened so that I can claim on my insurance. This is very disappointing. So my advice to anyone who chooses to stay at Si Como No is to hope nothing goes wrong because the management don't really care

Dear robinski2, With all due respect, it’s extremely rare, in my 26 years in hospitality, to read and respond to a guest review of what we sincerely believe are some “Alternative Facts”! When you notified management of the loss of your Blackberry phone at the beach and declined our offer to make an official police report, a Costa Rican protocol, your decision instead to negotiate with apparent blackmailers removed management from the process. While we still summoned the police, who confirmed our advice to provide an official report, it seems your insurance company requires that document that we cannot provide. Regards, Jim Damalas Founder/CEO Greentique Hotels

Our stay at Si Como No was wonderful! The views of the Pacifica Ocean and rainforest are unmatched in Manuel Antonio. The staff are all friendly and professional. The food and service was exceptional! The pools were great. It's truly a magical place in a fabulous area of Costa Rica. The location was superb and close to anywhere you would want to visit or tour in Manuel Antonio. I could not recommend it highly enough for anyone visiting the area. PURA VIDA!!!

I recently stayed at Si Como No for 3 nights. It was a mother/daughter trip and our first time to Costa Rica. What stands out is the incredible and friendly staff. We were met with smiles and genuine kindness each morning at breakfast by Allen, Smith, Joshua and Marcela. So friendly and accommodating. They exemplify the friendliness and Pura Vida way of life of Costa Rica. The hotel had a shuttle stop just outside the hotel for easy tranport down the hill to Manuel Antonio. The breakfast (which was included) was hearty and delicious. The enitre staff was excellent, friendly and so helpful during our stay and is the reason I would recommend the hotel to others. I can't wait to return to Costa Rica for another visit!

We stayed in room 46 (Honeymoon Suite) and loved the beautiful resort with amazing views of the ocean/jungle with quite a bit of different plants/flowers/animals on property. We enjoyed the close proximity to local restaurants as well as the supermarket and ATM. We also liked the adults only pool with a bar. The staff is very attentive and the rooms are kept clean. The restaurant food is good and the drinks are well made. We received exceptional service from all but especially Johanna at the front desk, Gustavo at the pool bar and Allen in the Rico Tico restaurant for breakfast. I am giving 4/5 stars because I feel that the rooms appear dated and my wife did not appreciate numerous geckos crawling along the walls and found one in her pajamas. Good resort with great views and with a few updates we'd definitely return.

We stayed for a few days and could not believe the view from our balcony! The room was clean and comfortable and the shower was spacious. Highly recommend! We will definitely be back. The pool and swim up bar was wonderful as well.
