I stayed at Si Como No for 2 nights while doing a week long trip in Costa Rica. This was by far the worst part of the trip. Overall Si Como No is a pretty average hotel that is terribly overpriced. It feels like Club Med, except with a 'sustainable' marketing message that includes no TVs, cold showers, but uhum, air conditioning and 2 swimming pools with the resultant energy drain (its just not true that this hotel is green!!!).
The hotel is fine if what you are looking for is an extremely touristy package type with all the usuals of a Club Med resort, think very heavy breakfasts, screaming kids, cheesy drinks... Furthermore, Si Como No's flagship restaurant, Claro Que Si is an even bigger disappointment, the menu is nearly 20 pages long but is full of pretty poor fatty meals. I had a catch of the day which was so full of butter there was a little puddle on my plate. My partner order the rice which was so big that even after finishing part of it, and asking for the rest to go it still looked like a massive portion (so so wasteful). Good food should not be about quantity or fat yet that is what Claro goes for, its cheating really.
All in all, the worst part of an otherwise amazing trip to Costa Rica. There are so many way better hotels in the country, give Si Como No a skip
