Si Como No is set high on a hill above the Pacific Ocean and the beaches of Manuel Antonio National Park. The hotel was designed and built to minimise impact on the natural environment and is run according to 'sustainable hospitality' guidelines.
The hotel offers a choice of room and suite categories, all with telephone, minibar and private bathroom. Air conditioning and ceiling fans keep indoor temperatures refreshingly cool. Deluxe rooms and suites have balconies. There are no televisions as these would only detract from the beauty of the surroundings.
Of the two restaurants, one specialises in fresh seafood and has a dining deck overlooking the jungle, while the other offers relaxed dining beneath a canopy in the gardens and by the pool. The pool terrace also features a swim-up bar, pool, waterfall and jacuzzi.
The Cala Spa offers beauty and health-promoting treatments using many ingredients grown in the hotel's 10 acres of gardens.
While at Si Como No you can explore Manuel Antonio's forests and beaches with a guide, observe noturnal creatures on a night walk, experience the thrills of a canopy and zipline tour, swim beneath waterfalls, cruise the ocean by catamaran and go horse riding.

"Incredible views over the rainforest to the Pacific Ocean - complete with frigatebirds, boobies and pelicans. The white-faced capuchins were easy to see, while we were even treated to visiting squirrel monkeys at breakfast. Excellent birdwatching from balcony, and especially from restaurant. Several of the waiters were good birdwatchers and keen to share their knowledge and enthusiasm with us. Enormous beds - complete with the view. Huge bathroom. Delicious food. The large gift shop and adjacent butterfly garden (complimentary entry included) were an added bonus."
