Looks are deceiving. It appears to butt up to the road and looks like a fairly uninteresting motel from the road. This is only the front office. Once you enter, you realize that you are on top of the resort and the rooms, pools, spa, and restaurants all are down below.
Si Como No marvelously incorporates the rain forest into the resort. Some of the rooms even looked like tree houses hanging above the top of the rain forest.
I strolled around the grounds and was impressed by how you felt like you were in the middle of the jungle and not off the main busy road near Quepos!
The hotel has a wonderful spa. I did not use it, but I picked up a brochure and it looked top-rate. The hotel has a restaurant, spa, extensive gift shop with local treasures, and two pools. The pools looked great. The adult pool had a busy swim-up bar and the kid’s pool had some fun-looking waterslides. Both pools were full of happy guests. By the kid’s pool I spotted the biggest iguana I had seen on this trip, just soaking up the sun, like one of the guests!
This hotel is environmentally friendly. All the wood used is farm grown, there are solar Jacuzzis, and all the water is recycled into the landscape. They seemed serious about protecting the environment.
This would be a great choice for a family with kids. It has a super location, and rumor has it that grounds are full of wildlife: monkeys, sloths, and frogs. Also, right across the street is an excellent butterfly farm. The room rates from $150 to $270, depending on type of room and season. These rates are in line with other hotels in the area. I was happy I took the tour. Next time I hope to be a guest here. This is a top choice for this area.
