Wil, Allen and Marcela could not have been more accommodating. They were so welcoming and warm. We’ll definitely come back. We recommend the Seafood (Octopus) Bruscetta and Fish Wrap was excellent. The citrus/ginger sauce was next level.More

I stayed at the resort and had breakfast here twice. The food was amazing, and the view is like a postcard. They didnt even give me the stink eye when I wanted a beer with breakfast (hey, Im on vacation!) I think the best part...for me was the service... Allen, Marce and Will made sure everything was perfect and I enjoyed chatting with them! I cant wait to come back.More

We were greeted every day and they remembered what would preferred to order. They each made recommendations for things for...us to try. The food was very fresh and great. The views from the restaurant and bar were great. We will definitely be back.More

As a Costa Rican myself I wanted to bring my fiancé to Costa Rica to experience the beauty of my country. Manuel Antonio was an obvious stop for us. We stayed at Si Como No hotel for two nights and staff has been nothing but...wonderful. We ate at Rico Tico grill twice and each time the food and staff were great. Particularly Marcela and Wil were super friendly and helped make my fiancé’s birthday special. We want to come back with the kids in a few years and we will definitely be staying here again. Pura Vida 🤙🏻More

The Rico Tico bar and grill.... A view to die for. Well, don't die but you get it. Plus there is a clear plastic roof to watch the Monkees play on. Yes wild Monkees putting on a show. The bar and grill staff are super...friendly and thoroughly seem to enjoy their work. Just asks a question, if they don't know the answer they will find it out. Just a great group of people. Pura Vida!!!More
