Concierge.com's insider take:

The look is chic boutique but the attitude is eco-lodge at this 58-room hilltop hotel, located near the entrance of Manuel Antonio National Park on the Central Pacific coast. Troops of squirrel monkeys swing through the trees near the outdoor bar, and iguanas sun themselves by the two pools (one for families with a waterslide built into the hillside, the other reserved for grown-ups). To meet more of the local residents, guests can pop over to the neighboring Fincas Naturales Butterfly Garden, which is home to butterflies, poison dart frogs, caimans, and crocodiles. The standard rooms here are surprisingly large and include separate living rooms, but it's worth spending a bit more for a deluxe room with a balcony overlooking the shore. The restaurant Claro Que Sí serves nouvelle Latin cuisine, and owner Jim Damalas, a former Hollywood producer, has made every effort to make sure guests are well entertained with amenities such as a state-of-the-art movie theater, a Serenity spa, and one of the best art galleries in the region. He's also outfitted the hotel with irrigation, waste disposal, and energy-efficient systems that have earned Hotel Si Como No a perfect five-leaf eco-friendliness score from the Costa Rican Tourism Board.—Updated by Christopher P.
