Si Como No Resort Pool Area

Si Como No Resort & Wildlife Refuge

Relaxed and scenic hillside resort with ocean views and unique amenities like a movie theater.

Overview

Si Como No Resort is one of those places that you never have to leave unless you want to. Although the rooms feel a little dated, all have balconies with at least partial ocean views, plus views of the jungle. The property features two restaurants, two swimming pools, a movie theater, and a full-service spa. And when you need a little more entertainment, you can walk through a nature reserve across the street or hop on the public bus to the beach or national park. 

Pros
  • This hillside location comes with ocean views from nearly every corner of the property, covering about 10 acres. 
  • Several amenities include two onsite restaurants/bars, two outdoor pools (one with a waterslide), swim-up bars, a movie theater, weekly live music, and a full-service spa (additional fee). 
  • You can walk around the large garden with outdoor terraces and nature paths.
  • A free shuttle runs several times a day to the national park and beach.

Cons
  • There’s no direct access to the beach.
  • The hotel is right on the busy main road through Manuel Antonio.
  • The Wi-Fi is spotty, and the overall decor and rooms is pretty outdated.

Kimkim Staff Review

Authenticity

Lush jungle greenery borders three sides of Si Como No Resort, so you’ll feel enveloped by the rainforest. The buildings blend into the environment, mixing neutral colors and warm hardwood. Spread across 10 acres, it’s not uncommon to see wildlife from your balcony or while walking on the nature trails.

Location

The resort is on a hillside, just off the main road through Manuel Antonio. There’s a grocery store and a handful of restaurants just down the street. So although you won’t be close to the beach or near the national park, you’re still nearly surrounded by tropical forests and can enjoy ocean views.

Rooms & Bathrooms

The hotel has 58 rooms that seem to grow into the hillside, enclosed by jungle and forest. Rooms feel a little dated but are spacious, bright, and warm with unique wooden ceilings. All have air conditioning, minifridges, and balconies with at least partial ocean views. Deluxe rooms and suites have slightly bigger balconies with near panoramic views. Keep in mind that no rooms have a TV, which intentionally maintains the property’s quiet atmosphere.

Other Highlights

You can really relax at the resort since it has two outdoor pools with swim-up bars (one of the pools has a waterslide, which is great for kids), a movie theater (currently on hold due to COVID), two restaurants and bars, and a full-service spa. Most of the common areas come with fantastic ocean views. 

Sustainability

Si Como No Resort was the first property established by the Greentiques Hotel group, one of the founders of sustainable hospitality in Costa Rica. Sustainability initiatives at the property include recycling and waste management, water conservation, organic food sources, and reducing carbon footprints, among others.
